The guides were very kind and the tour was awesome. You get to see a lot of the Portuguese nature and small, old villages. The quads were in a really good shape and we felt safe the whole time, thanks to the guides that explained everything and looked after us during the tour. We got beautiful pictures and were provided with water. We would totally recommend it!
