Really great once in a lifetime experience, with a lot of interesting information about the national park, animals and plants you can find in the park. If you have any chance of making this tour, you should definitely book it! Pedro and Rita are amazing, very nice and knowledgeable people who will assure you a great time. The lunch which is included was also very great! We could get a taste of the local food which was freshly made, even got a very nice bottle of the so called local „green vine“. 10 out of 10 totally worth it !

It was absolutely amazing getting to spend a day with Rita and Pedro. They are consummate tour guides. Rita picked us up from our lodging in Porto, and they both drove us back. It was very worth the extra fifty euros to have them pick us up and drop us off. The tour itself was really great; we were able to do a lovely hike up to a lookout point, then we ate an amazing and filling lunch, and then we did a smaller hike in the afternoon in a more foresty area. Pedro knows so much about the landscape and history of the park, and he was able to teach my sister and I about it. The park itself is so large and there are not a lot of people around, so it is good to have guidance to be able to navigate the park and make the most of your visit. We were also able to take a dip in the hot springs which was a great way to end the day. Rita and Pedro also are store owners with great products like locally made jams. Overall, it was a great experience!
