An excellent small group tour

Our tour guide Joao is very energetic and knowledgeable to give us detail and history of every place we are visit. We are visiting many places in a half day tour in a small van and we are able to reach places that a big tour bus cannot. I would strongly recommend this tour for others

Fantastic excursion, dreamy landscapes and excellent attention from our guide and all the members of the organization. It has been a great success.
