This was a great experience. The solar boat is so quiet that you hear nothing but the water, the waves, the wind and the birds. The river is beautiful and the city of Silves is worth a visit. The most pleasant about this trip though was the atmosphere. Our guides had a lot of interesting information to share, and took great care of the passengers. With their humor and their personal approach they made it feel as if this was a tour with friends. I can definitely recommend this tour. Thanks for the wonderful afternoon!
