    All correspondence with Getyourguide was spot on. Our guide Ricardo was on time to pick us up, very sympathetic and gave explanations in French and English for the entire duration of the trip (TOP!). The PAIVA walks are really fun to do and the 516m suspension bridge is the icing on the cake. We had good weather and had lunch together in a small but cosy restaurant. Highly recommended!!!

    Our guide, Norberto, was very kind with explaining everything before the tour actually started, even though there is all the information written when placing the booking. The Auroca bridge can be easily walked in a few minutes, although the Walkways took around 3 hours for sure. It was a pretty smooth walk, except for the few stairs there are going up/down. Would definitely recommend going as it was very relaxing and we loved every minute of it. In addition, Norberto took us to a very nice restaurant and the food was delicious!

    A great way to experience a day trip from Porto. Excellent from the start with the convenience of pick-up, knowledge of our guide and hospitality of everyone overall. Highly recommended. The only thing--if enjoying this excursion during the summer (July/Aug.), beware it is HOT (100+F/38+C and a full 8KM/5mile hike. Bring plenty of water; one (large) bottle of water was not enough per person and there was no opportunity to refill; we had to start rationing water with a lot of breaks. I wish we had known this, as we would have purchased more water on the ride during one of our bathroom stops. This was the only reason I rated Good instead of Excellent.
