The experience was outwordly and adventurous. I would even say it was THE BEST part of our trip through Portugal. The view was georgous and for your selfie and picture lovers it will totaly rock your social media or your friends. We saw waterfalls, mountains, clifs, forest and the view in general, which ,might I add, was breathtaking, but the trip would NOT have been so fun without out tour guide Miguel. He is very helpful, entertaining, atractive and full of energy and spirit. He also has a good sense of humor. ;)

Just awesome! I participated in this tour for the third time to convince friends of the beauty of the National Park and they were absolutely not disappointed. Super sympathetic tour guides, delicious food and the lagoons and waterfalls are just a dream. An unforgettable experience that I can only recommend!

A fantastic way to visit Peneda Geres National Park

My 21 year old son and I had a great day in Peneda Geres National Park. Nuno, our guide was really friendly and helpful and gelled our small group of 8 together very well. The 4X4 reached otherwise inaccessible starting points for our walks into the mountains. These were reasonably strenuous but the beautiful views were well worth the treks as was swimming the lagoons. Nuno kept a good pace and we never felt hurried. I do wish I had brought better walking shoes though! The relaxed lunch in the hillside village was great too. A very enjoyable and memorable day ideal for all ages of reasonable fitness.
