This tour is highly recommended. Inez our cheerful and enthusiastic guide was fantastic. The trip in the jeep over bumpy roads, the kayaking with swimming in the large lake, the authentic Portuguese food and then the relatively short walk to the beautiful waterfalls where we could cool down in the water and finally a walk through the old village. Inez knew a lot to tell and we enjoyed this day.

Magnificent day, in connection with nature, mountain, lake, waterfall and natural pools. Very positive experience with kayaking and paddling. We were accompanied by a great guide, friendly, cultured, funny, benevolent. Hearty, traditional and tasty meals. We highly recommend this tour.

Our guide Richardo was very friendly and knowledge about the national park and Porto. The kayak and hike was the perfect pace, he adjusted based on the group skill level. Food was fantastic! Overall a wonderful experience!

Very nice activity, 1 hour of quiet stroll on the Douro then return by kayak to Pinhao, we have plenty of time to come back enjoying the fabulous views of the vineyards nestled on the mountainside.

The tour was really worth every euro! You get to places that you wouldn't find otherwise as a tourist. Our guide Renate was super nice and did a great job!
