Despite the rainy day the guide José, did everything possible to meet our expectations. At the beginning of the tour we were full of questions about what the tour would be like due to constant rain and at the end we had our intergations answered in a positive way. We recommend the tour.

a trip "out of Porto" not to be missed !!!

If you have at least three days to visit Porto, you cannot miss this trip out of town! perfectly organized with hotel pick-up and guided tour in beautiful villages near Porto. (To reach them by public transport would take much longer). Efficiency and 24h availability made this tour possible despite the misunderstandings about arriving in Portigallo.

Definitely worth a visit!

We had Rui as our guide and he is a great guy! He came and picked us up on time, is really friendly, knowledgeable and made our trip fun. If you have a spare day in Porto, it's worth going to these two places. Wear comfy shoes though, there is a lot of walking :) Enjoy! Thanks again Rui!
