Beautiful views and an adventure! You can't beat that. We booked through getyourguide, was rescheduled with permission to the next day, no issues with that since we agreed to it. I went with 2 friends, none of us have a lot of experience with horses and I felt like we were appropriately matched with horses at our skill level. (Mine was a bit spunky but it didn't scare me so it was fine, but if my other friend had been on that horse it wouldn't have been so good) Our guide took great pictures and sent the link for them the next day. Overall highly recommend. Just one note, the saddles did not have a saddlehorn. When I have been on horses in the past, the saddles always had one, and as a beginner I have found them helpful for mounting/dismounting and balancing while riding. Maybe it's better for safety, trail riding, or comfort for the horse. I don't know, but I thought I'd mention it since I noticed it.

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!
