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.
Really good day activity! We were lucky to be the only people during this day, so it was more of a private tour. Patricia is an incredible tour guide, she's got a contagious great mood, and she knows what she's talking about. Sights are wonderful, even with a little rain you can definitely enjoy. Sometimes tour lunch can be a bit "cheap", but in this case it was a very nice restaurant with traditional Portuguese food, really enjoyable. All in all, very recommended. Thanks Patricia!
This was a fantastic two hours tour, really informative and perfect for navigating all the steep hills which we would never have managed on foot Our guide was Dutch and spoke perfect English We certainly felt we got our money's worth It was good fun and we covered a lot of ground The meeting point was a little difficult to find because they are currently recovering from a fire and the signage was not very good Lots of stops for photos and general questions
What a lovely day my mum and I had, visiting the Valley, tasting port wine and cruising on the Douro. Our guide was very knowledgeable, kind and patient. She was just giving the right amount of informations without overflowing us. She was also very funny and an excellent driver. On top of all our nice activities, we had a fantastic lunch. I'll probably be back if weather allows in a week or so with my boyfriend. A must to do while in Portugal !
Great full day tour which includes pick up and drop off. There is a stop on the way to the Douro for a bathroom break and coffee/snack (purchase on own). Lunch was a very generous helping. Wine tastings were nice. During COVID, they still sell all the seats in the van. Masks are mandatory except at the tastings and lunch of course.
