It was the first time canyoning for my partner and I and we were appropriately nervous when we joined our group of 4. However, our guides, Aurélio & Pedro, were brilliant at explaining the individual steps during the tour - may it be abseiling, ziplining or jumping down a waterfall - and any nervousness was soon gone. It was also great that there was never a "must" - if your nerves simply didn't let you jump down the waterfall (in my case, I couldn't muster the courage to do the second jump), Aurélio was kind enough to help abseil down the waterfall instead. Next time we're back in Porto, we definitely want to come back and try out the other tours by Tobogã and maybe even do this canyoning tour again.

An incredible experience that everyone should have at least once in their life. I'm 48 years old and I'm in shape because I eat well, although I hardly do sports. It was my first time and I was able to do the activity without any problem. The contact with nature, the crystal clear water, the adrenaline of the jumps, slides, etc. It's all a real blast. Aurelio and Marta, two incredibly patient, professional and charming guides. I will repeat with my children one day for sure :)

The guide Nuno Peixoto was very passionate and knew everything about Porto, wine and food. Where and what to eat, EVERYTHING! Very nice tour in general, amazing wine and meal. Again, super nice guide! (Worth mentioning, cause it’s the guide that makes the trip!)

Very nice. Keep in mind Canyoning isn't canoeing as you might initially think (as I did). Great guides and amazingly beautiful landscape. Good duration and lots of great jumps and "zip lines". Would recommend.

Professional team Amazing service Great adventure Experts! We will come again
