We were picked up promptly at our hotel in Porto by Pedro. My sister in law and I were the only people on the tour. Pedro was well educated and during the drive we talked flora, fauna, and politics! Pedro asked us what we were interested in and I stated I was most interested in the Iberian wolf and being out in nature. Due to this interest and evaluation of our degree of fitness, he decided going to a shepherd corral was a good choice. We had an incredible hike up into the mountains to a remote bog and shepherds hit. . The hike was steep and a bit rocky, but we were in capable hands. The views were amazing. We saw wolf tracks and scat! Then a lovely local lunch with wine and more food then we could eat—bean stew, steak, bread and cheese and cod fritters. We then drove around the park a bit, seeing waterfalls and milestones. The end was great—a soak in a hot springs in Spain with a full moon, Jupiter and Venus on the horizon. This trip is highly recommended.

Great day spent in the Peneda-Gêres National Park. An excursion that lived up to our expectations. Hiking for several kilometers, 4x4 tour, typical regional lunch. Swimming under a waterfall was a real plus. My mom had no trouble keeping up with the pace and really enjoyed it. Our guide Pedro was particularly warm. He takes great pleasure in showing us around his region and passing on his knowledge to us. I highly recommend !

First of all, it was very encouraging for travelers who participated in the tour at a strange destination to pick up and drop off at the accommodation. And in the planning of my trip, it was very nice that a guide with local knowledge guided me to places of interest that were unlikely to be realized at all. This tour was a private tour with my friend and myself. His honest tour guide and his personality made us feel as if we were traveling with a friend. There are many things that I feel when I travel, and I am impressed by visiting various tourist destinations, but encountering people at the destination may be the deepest memory that will change the impression of the trip. Of course, I think this tour is a wonderful event to enjoy the nature of Portugal. On the way back from the tour, I was asked to stop by at the supermarket to purchase groceries for breakfast, and to deliver the wallet I left behind to my car the next day. When I took this tour, I saw the story of your company. I th
