Booked in January, we had our very own private tour of Arrabida. It was brilliant! And our guide, Miguel, was great. First we enjoyed Livramento market in Setubal, then we took in panoramic views going into Arrabida park, before exploring the cave, then beach; finished off with the wine tastings. The food and company was good. Can fully recommend!

The tour was fantastic. Sid was very knowledgeable and nice. We got to a large pod of dolphins and they gave up a great tour of the sights on the river on the way back in. It was a really cool experience! We loved it.
