Great trip experiencing Farol, Culatra and the Deserted Island. Lunch at Rui's mother's house was wonderful - good choice and delicious. Afterwards we snorkelled looking for seahorses.

Very nice Trip, longer than expected. You get a lot of value for the money. Trip included snorkling for seahorses (found some). Lunchtime was great @ Rui parent's home. He also showed us chameleons and some special flowers. We were absolutely satisfied.
