      Untrustworthy, waste of time, money and stress.
      We had the most unprofessional experience with this company just this week. We booked this excursion weeks in advance and on the day of, we were at the meet up point and a man came up to the group saying the vans were in an accident and some people wouldn’t be able to go. Our trip was cancelled online right then but he offered us to pay cash and get in the same van that was in the accident but it might “break down on the highway.” Already not a great start… But, we rebooked for another day because the first day was ruined but it was a highlight point of the trip so we really wanted to go. We reached out to Viator for compensation since the day was wasted and voiced our concerns about the safety of the trip. Then, Viator sent our complaint to the tour company and the next thing you know, the rescheduled trip gets cancelled out of nowhere with no explanation. On top of everything, we switched around our other excursions to accommodate the rebooking and paid even more money, to extend our stay. Completely untrustworthy company, sketchy, petty, overall I wish I had never wasted my time. I’m extremely disappointed because this was the one thing I was the most excited for when coming to Portugal and Faro.

      A Gorgeous Excursion
      The views are absolutely stunning, we couldn't stop taking pictures. It was so cool to see the caves and the interesting shapes that had been made by the water. Make sure to wear sturdy shoes though! And bring your bathing suit for the beach!

      I don't recommend it if you are a woman traveling alone. the guide and one of the drivers are not professionals and are looking for someone to sleep with.

      A mini tour
      Despite the fog and the cave being closed we were taken on a lovely tour full of fun and informative commentary. Our guide was fabulous and happily spoke to all 7 of us and took photos. Would recommend as it is in depth and has a good variety of sights

      This is an awesome place to visit and I would highly recommend it. It was definitely the highlight of my trip. I wish there was more time to spend at the beach because it was so wonderful.

      Great trip! Very recommended. Well experienced guide Andres hosted the trip. Shared lots of interesting information and made trip very smooth. Places worth to see without question, even if cave couldn’t be seen from the bottom because of the recent restrictions. Thank you Guys 🙂

      Great tour, the guide was super friendly and helpful with a lot of knowledge. Shame you can’t enter the cave but still worth a visit!

      Great trip, see amazing natural beauty.
      The trip was amazing. Finding the van was easy and everything seemed pretty well organized. The only issue I have is that what is said is offered wasn't actually offered. You won't get a water proof bag for your phone. There is one bag and all the phones are put in there. One lady's phone was cracked after the swim. I wasn't offended swim fins or a wetsuit, so I am not sure why the description says those would be provided. The wet suit wasn't really needed, but the fins would have been super helpful on the swim to the cave. They guides were very helpful in the water though. If you are not a strong swimmer, it could be hard for you. Other than that, the trip was amazing and definitely worth going! Book now, considering we were told this could be the last year people are allowed inside the cave.

      The Best Day of Our Lives!
      Bruno was our tour guide and we basically got a private tour the four of us and took us to all the amazing spots. Boogie Boarding into the cave was the way to go and was super easy and fun. It was such an amazing experience from start to finish. Portugal is so beautiful and we want to come back and visit our new friend Bruno!

    I am skeptical about group tours to tourist sites but this tour proved how great they can be with the right company.

    The approximately one hour van ride to our first stop, the meandering along the coast to the other two stops and the drive back to Faro were, even with a full contingent of 7 customers, very comfortable.

    The stops were exceptional. While the guide kept us more or less together at Algar Seco and Benagil Cave, there was plenty of time to wander the cliffs, look for great pictures and enjoy the vistas at each of the stopping points on the walks at these sites. At the last stop, Marinha beach, we were set free to explore the cliffs or the beach with a set time to return to the van. Again there was plenty of time to do a bit of both, or, as one couple did, go for a swim at, during the off season, almost private beaches.

    Some of the walking was uneven or precarious and the guide and driver helped me and others maneuver through some of the nook and cranny rock formations on the walks. While there were no guarantees of a toilet break, at the second stop the guide did let some customers walk a short distance to a cafe to use the WC. With the ample time allowed for this trip, my normal frustration with waiting for recalcitrant customers did not come to fruition.

    Brilliant day trip from Faro, beautiful scenery and the bodyboarding was a great way to get into the caves. I’ve never done it before but the equipment was high quality and the instructor was very helpful so felt safe the whole time. Lots of time to take pictures and explore, didn’t feel rushed at all and very relaxed atmosphere.

    The second beach was beautiful, we brought a packed lunch but there are some vendors there if you want an ice cream or drink. We also went into a secret cave- unforgettable experience and can’t recommend enough!

    The most incredible experience.. the service provided by Algarve Beauties was amazing and i have no words for the manager/instructor Andres, he went above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoyed the experience and me being a non-swimmer, he was so patient and calm with me and swam with me without a board even though the waves were very very choppy. If you are visiting the caves, do not go by boat because the only way to experience the beauty of this place is to actually go inside it. Thank you Andres for this experience, you were brilliant!!

    The caves and sights were really amazing! The other driver in the other van that went with us was very kind and took photos of us and hiked with everyone. The downsides would be that there were 0 bathroom stops along the way unless you wanted to go in the ocean. It was too long of a tour to not have any available bathrooms. Our driver was nice, but she was not very informative. She played explicit rap music the whole time, which most people didn’t appreciate.

    If you are in Faro and want to discover most breathtaking places in Algarve go on that trip! Thanks to it you will do some fun thing such as bodyboarding and you will enter such a wonder as Benagil Cave. You don't need to worry if you haven't tried bodyboarding before because you are under an eye of fully qualified and experienced instructor who also wants you to have an amazing time. You will be given enough time to admire the cave, you can listen to it's story and take some nice pictures. Most people take a boat trip or rent kayaks but that's pretty boring comparing to that. After visiting the cave you will be taken further to the most beautiful Marinha Beach. You can then have more swim in the ocean or hike a bit to gather even more beautiful memories.

    This was the only activity that was arranged with transportation from Faro city centre, so it was perfect for me and my friends. The guide was very friendly and down to earth. We had a really comfortable journey to the spots. The bodyboarding was really fun to do and the views of the caves and beaches are so worth it. We went in the afternoon and had a nice evening swim at Marinha beach as the sun was going down. Perfect finish to a fun day.

    This trip was an excellent choice and a great, environmentally safe way to visit the Bengali Cave. Although we are capable swimmers, the body board was a bit difficult but Andres provided the necessary assistance for us to safely make the trip into the cave and back. Eduardo took care of us while in transit and it was an awesome experience. Help preserve the cave and stay off the big boats that violate the cave entrance and pose a danger to swimmers and kayakers. I highly recommend Algarve Beauties if visiting the cave is on your vacation list.

    My first solo trip to another country and I was not disappointed. On my first day in Faro I’ve booked a Benagil cave tour- our guide was Bruno really nice guy who made the whole trip. He was really funny, he was attentive and made sure that everyone was safe and comfortable and the views in the end are to die for.

    this tour was amazing! you travel by mini-bus (instead of boat or kayak) which was good as you can be out of the heat. the stops on the tour were beautiful, with breathtaking views and ample time to explore. would recommend bringing some snacks for the road!
