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 picked us up at the hotel on time. After a clear instruction we started a fantastic canyoning trip. The guide took many photos and videos along the way and provided a snack. On the way back we were even allowed to listen to our own music in the van and were recommended local restaurants to visit.
