+Johny is very knowledgeable. He knows the region very well. With a Mercedes Vito with pickup, we went on a wonderful tour, which I can only recommend. -The food leaves a lot to be desired! The vegetarian food that we ordered and ate in the restaurant planned for the tour consisted of spaghetti with tomato soup, the mushrooms and tomato soup are from the glass and unfortunately you can taste it. Plenty of garlic was added to this, but unfortunately the food of the other participants also left a lot to be desired. Each dish cost €16.00 - in the end this price was simply too high for the reasons mentioned. One could have expected much more!

First it was parawaiting through fog and no wind. But Nelson is a real heart person and stayed confident and patient. In the time he explained us a lot about the Portuguese culture and landscape. At the end of the day we got the experience of our trip. Finally free to fly like a bird. Inside gladly again

Antonio was an exceptionally gracious tour host offering thoughtful commentary on the villages and coastlines. Went out of his way to make our trip very enjoyable and memorable! I would highly refer Antonio to other travelers!

Great!!! Super great ride! Beautiful horses; wonderful leader of the horseback ride, very professional. area fantastic; an absolute pleasure. One of the best activities we have ever booked.

A nice friendly guide knows a lot about the area. And takes the time and gives you enough time to look around and discover things for yourself.
