Booked a Lisbon Tuk Tuk tour with Big Blue for about 20 people as a work event at the end of... January. Really great experience from start to finish - from Heleen's responsiveness and flexibility as our numbers changed (including finding an extra tuk tuk 3 hours before our tour was due to start!) to Nuno guiding us expertly around the city and then back to the wine bar for some beautiful fado music. Really enjoyable afternoon from start to finish. Thank you!read more

Last week I had the pleasure of being a part of an incredible company offsite in Sesimbra and... Lisbon, organised by Big Blue Adventures. The itinerary was so well planned and I particularly enjoyed the 4x4 guided tour and wine tasting. Shoutout to Steven, Heleen and Daniel for making the trip so memorable!read more

Heleen and Nuno of Big Blue recently provided services for our company trip to Lisbon. They... organised and supported all aspects from logistics with our hotel, through to all the team building activities and trips. Any last minute requests were dealt with quickly and proactively - nothing was too much trouble. Every single aspect ran perfectly and we all felt well looked after.Their customer service is excellent and they are extremely fun and pleasant people to be around and work with…they felt like part of our team.I have no hesitation in recommending them and look forward to working together with them again in future.read more

Why We Love This…

“Our other outdoor activity options are perfect for adding to our best selling watersports & adventures in Portugal, a favourite of mine being a tuk tuk tour or sunset sailing trip. But, they are also awesome fun on their own. Some days you may just want to mix things up and these outdoor activities show another great side to amazing Portugal.”
