    The trip was well organised, although I booked 2 tickets and because the minivan was full we weren’t able to sit together. I know that for some people is not a big deal but if you spent almost 5 hours in a car we would prefer to sit together, especially it was my partner’s birthday. The tour guide was excellent, very funny and knowledgeable. Also went beyond my expectations when he asked us for a lunch preference and I don’t like meat or salmon, he made sure that the restaurant prepare something different for me and it was delicious!

    Both the rides were quite enjoyable, and the layout quite nice of the important things to see. The only issue was that of checking which plug in worked, luckily for me Spanish and Portuguese aren’t too far off but at a certain point I noticed I began to lose attention since well I don’t speak Portuguese but Spanish. Other than that I would advise wearing some sunscreen since I got completely burned since it was a nice perfect sunny day. Overall great ride but fix your sockets on the bus!

We ended up the only two on the tour, so we had a “private” tour with Claudia Macedo. She was fantastic. It was so nice to have a guide who both grew up in the city and still lives there. She shared so much about the city, history, architecture, culture and her own memories and experiences. The restaurants for breakfast and lunch were nice, and the tastings in between were wonderful. We plan on visiting them before we leave Porto in a couple of days. But the best thing of all was Claudia herself.

Wonderful experience. From being picked up in the middle of Porto, on-site briefing and the really amazingly fun tour, everything was perfect. The guides were nice and courteous and you could sometimes go to the limit with the buggies. Great value for money and an unforgettable experience!

Adventurous and insanely cool tour with Joni and Carlos. I can only recommend it. Food and drinks are not available, that should be noted. Therefor a lot of fun and nice guides!

I could not recommend this more highly. Carlos and the team are fantastic, the vehicles are great fun to drive and the scenery is beautiful throughout the tour.

Superb experience! Very kind and attentive guides. Stunning scenery and intensive driving experience (real steep terrain). I recommend !!
