Had a great time! Miguel is a very animated and fun guide, sharing lots of fun stories and such along the way. The park itself is very impressive.. majestic, scenic views. There's also a quaint village (where u start your hike). There you will also find a small bar and restrooms; so you can have a coffee and buy some food/drinks before setting off. It was very, very hot on our day; nevertheless, I think most people who are more or less active (and wearing appropriate clothing/shoes) will manage fine on this hike. Swimming in the lagunes is lovely; could have stayed all day, if it were up to me. There are other people there as well (mostly Portuguese locals actually), but because you get there relatively early in the day, you'll be able to find a good spot for your towel. Our group had a great click as well, and we made plans to meet up the following days as well. Definitely recommended!
My daughter and I had an awesome day in the nature reserve. We got to see two totally different areas of the park, had a very nice hike to a waterfall, learned a lot about the flora and fauna. Very pleasant. One day later we got a photo documentation about our trip. This is all thanks to our guide Pedro, who is very nice person and very knowledgeable about the area; he even showed us which “steps” to take when climbing down to the waterfall.
The tour included beautiful landscapes, local history, fauna & flora, region typical lunch, a taste of the natural springs and a wonderful guide Pedro. The beautiful old Roman road was a pleasure to pass on either by car or by foot. The various trees in the woods are part of an unique ecosystem, combining Mediterranean and Atlantic species, and served as a peaceful environment for the day. We highly recommend taking this tour!
If you’re in Porto, it’s a must. Can’t recommend it enough. It’s a lovely walk and hike to the Seven Lakes, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip. Adriano is a brilliant guide. Very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. He also has more than one exciting surprise along the way. Be warned, chances of breaking out in spontaneous karaoke are real.
Awesome trip with beautiful and enchanting places to see. The guide was very sympathetic and he had a lot to say about the culture and the history. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone who loves the nature and his past.
