Shortly after, we were picked up from Porto and taken to a special shortcut to reach the Arouca Bridge entrance. When we got to the bridge, we were not so exhausted as the others coming from the car park. Crossing the bridge was an excellent experience. It is really worth walking. Then we went down the Paiva Walkways, which was about 5 km. It was quite hard because of the heat, but we survived. The views were incredible. After that, we were driven to a village for a local lunch. Delicious food, nice chats over the table. Then we went to Aveiro, a stunning town over the ocean called a Portuguese Venice. Our guide, Norberto, was really so friendly, informative,very well organised and tried to do his best to make our trip outstanding. And in fact, he did. I truly recommend this trip as we enjoyed it very much.
Brilliant trip by Norberto! He picked us up from our hotel on time and was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Dropped us off at the start of the Paiva walkway and was there to meet us at the end to take us to a traditional Portuguese restaurant for a lovely lunch. We were then driven to Aveiro for a walk around the town (with a market) and had a nice 45 minute trip on a ‘gondola’ before making our way on to our final stop for the day, Costa Nova, with its brightly painted fishermens cottages.
A varied day, from a short hike in the mountains to discovering charming seaside towns. Norberto is a very friendly and trustworthy guide. A simple and good lunch. A very beautiful experience!
Norberto was great and looked after us all day while being really informative. Highly recommend booking through Norberto. The walk had lovely views and lots of steps.
One of the best guided tours ever. Norberto was amazing. If you are looking for any guided in Northern Portugal, Norberto is the guy to go to.
