Yesterday we had amazing day with Joao of Greenwalks. We meet at the train station. Right away we could tell this was going to be a wonderful experience. Joao English is impeccable! He is from the area and his knowledge was off the charts. It was like touring with our new friend. He will take you where you want to go and for as long as you want to go. He knows all the sights so well. We take tours everywhere we go and I can totally recommend Greenwalks.

I thought the Greenwalk tour guide - Joao - was excellent. Very informative on a range of subjects from botany to Geology with a focus on the history obviously!Easy going style and hit all the highlights. You would need to be fairly fit for this tour and make sure to bring good walking shoes.

Get Your Guide website, where I booked the tour with Greenwalk did not have an accurate description of the tour: which included a 2 hour hike up the mountain to the Pena Palace on uneven terrain, rock steps, and steep inclines and a 1 hour walk down the mountain. It was a great tour and João was very knowledgeable, but give more information beforehand of how strenuous it will be.
