What people are saying about Porto

Drive up to the mountains from Porto. Our guide was very communicative and arrived on time. Rise took about an hour. We went to several places to swim. There was minimal walking but the walking was up and down rocky trails so sneakers are helpful. Also need water shoes for swimming. The water is very cold but so clean and beautiful.we also had a local lunch in the mountains and stopped at a couple of sites. It was very enjoyable to spend the day in the company of our guide and the other travelers

It was a great tour of the national park, despite the somewhat grey weather. All the various stops showed off different elements of the park, such as waterfalls, local villages, and we had an excellent lunch. Our guide was really informative and very good company throughout. Do bear in mind that you spend a fair bit of the day in the car getting to the park and then getting to different places.

Loved this tour; our guide was fabulous, and we were lucky enough to be in such a amazing group of fellow travelers! The views were spectacular, and we loved learning more about the wine history in the area form both a larger facility and a smaller one. And of course, the wine was amazing. Great activity!

Amazing trip to the national park with the best guides. Good atmosphere, beautiful sights and refreshing swimming breaks. Traditional Portuguese lunch was perfect. I’m a solo traveller but had so much fun with everyone. Really recommend.

Joseph was an excellent driver and host and created a very relaxing day for us. Comfortable car, pleasant conversation, flexible as needed. A very good value and enjoyable trip.
