Can't say enough about how amazing...
, Sep 2017
Can't say enough about how amazing this tour and tour guide were! We traveled ALL over Portugal and this was literally the highlight of our entire Portugal trip!!! Gorgeous waterfalls and hike, amazing picnic, everything was done on our own time/pace, friendliest and most knowledgeable tour guide we had of all the tours we took in our 10 days of being there-you can tell he LOVES doing what he does and his excitement is infectious. If you can, I highly recommend asking about staying overnight at Carmen's house, she is SO friendly and warm and welcoming. We took this tour while we were staying in Porto and the tour guide was timely in picking us up and accommodating our needs. You will regret it if you leave Portugal without doing this one!

Not to be missed. A truely wonderful hike between those beautiful waterfalls and nature, if it was a bit warmer would've been great to have a swim in one of the many lagoons we have come accross. Our guide was extremly knowlagble of the area and the types of trees and plants and we had a lovely picnic by one of the lagoons having some local food of the village. Also we had the chance to bake corn bread in the traditional way with one of the local residents. Our guide also showed us hiw the old water mill operates. We ended the tour driving to a wonderful view point which besides the view we were able to spot wild horses and goats :
