Me and my mum went on a late November afternoon with Lauro our tour guide and driver. It was a great trip. The solar power boat was silent so it made birdwatching and meandering through the channels of park so peaceful. Lauro was excellent, he supplied us with binoculars and pointed out all the different types of birds. The boat was comfortable and the waters very calm as it is a totally sheltered area. We saw thousands of birds, and he had a picture guide so we could pick them out too. The scenery was really unique and the views of Faro from the boat excellent. I really recommend this trip if you like boat trips, bird watching or just great scenery!

Don't skip this when visiting Faro! Ecperience with extremely knowledgable staff. We did not have much time so we could only do the 45-minute tour. But our guide LAURO, was extremely knowledgable and professional. By training he is a marine biologist, and he mixed science, nature and humor perfectly to give us a great experience on the barrier islands of the Ria Formosa. Tour left on-time. Boat was awesome because it was 100% solar (!) powered. Lauro is smart and passionate about nature in the Algarve. We did the tour in March, and it was just myself & my partner with Lauro...so really like a private tour without the private-tour-price. You'll have a great day with Lands, and Lauro rocks.
