What an amazing day I had with Luis! Obviously there are more organisations that offer a similar tour but I'm sure Luis made a huge difference. Luis is a great guide with a lot of knowledge about every factor we encounter throughout the whole tour and shares his knowledge in a fun and understandable way. We were in a mixed group of couples and solo-travelers but he managed to create a vibe and environment where each one of us was involved into the interaction. Although he had a certain program for the day, he made sure that we were getting value for our money so if we wanted to stick around a bit longer at a lagoon, that wasn't a problem. Luis knew where to take us for less crowded spots, so that we didn't have to fight for a place to chill around the lagoons. The lunch we got was truly extensive and amazingly delicious. Luis made sure we had enough food, water and vinho verde, without limiting us and made sure again we got value for our money. I by the way am not a hiker, matter of fact I hate hiking, but even for a non-hiker it was doable. Also, because the hiking pace was just at a moderate pace and adjusted to the whole of the group. This was great. Last but not least, I apparently missed that pictures would be taken, but this was just a welcome extra. Troughout the whole day pictures were taken and shared with the group the next day. Awesome memories were captured! Thanks again Luis for the wonderful day and I would recommend this trip 10/10 to anyone hesitating because of the price. In my search for the perfect organisation for this trip I saw similar tours being offered for less money, but it was truly worth every single penny and exceeded my expectations! Happy I chose to go with this tour operator and happy to have Luis as our guide.

My Mum and I had a truly amazing day on this tour. The whole experience was brought to life by our guide Emmanuel who was professional and engaging, very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and the way of life in the National Park and a very safe driver. We can't recommend this trip enough.

We had an amazing day exploring the Geres national park and the local villages. While we loved Porto it was nice to have a day away from city, surrounded by nature, away from the tourist hot spots. Marcelo was a fantastic host - he was knowledgeable, personable and had a great rapport with the locals in the villages we visited. We would recommend the trip to anyone who enjoys a unique adventure!

What an amazing day! Cannot recommend the trip more highly!
Quirky, fascinating, adventurous - we absolutely loved every moment.

Marcel was such a wonderful guide for the day, fun, relaxed, knowledgeable and attentive to everyone’s wishes and needs. He really made the day run smoothly and with great good humour, positivity and energy. Thank you Marcel!

We saw things that were such a joy and we felt very privileged to see such little tasters of a very secret Portugal!

The lunch meal was perfect in every way - absolutely fantastic!

The mix of fellow travellers was great & there was patience for us unfit ‘oldies’ (66 & 57) on the more adventurous parts of the day.

Returned with memories to treasure!

A really enjoyable day. We started early in the morning and we arrived at the Fafião village around 10 am. We left the 4x4 and after we hiked a little, we arrived at the first spot: the waterfalls. What a place ?! It was a big waterfall with crystal clear water that ended up to a small lake. The purity of the landscape was so tempting. Fortunately, I had my swim shorts, so I got in the lake. The water is so cold this time of the year but at the same time it's so refreshing. After that, we hiked back to the 4X4 and went to a viewpoint where one can have a majestic 360° view of the place. Then, we went to the only restaurant of the village and had a hearty meal of traditional Portuguese food. At that point, we had the change to get to know each other and recharge our batteries. Afterwards, we headed to a different waterfall, and then we explore the Fojos do lobo (an old wolf trap).

The day ended by returning to the village where fundraising auction was taking place. We had the chance to interact with local people who seemed really warm-hearted and treated us with some local wine. Last but not least, this day wouldn't have been so great if we hadn't Luiz (our guide). For the whole trip he was trying to make everybody feel comfortable. He told us a lot about the flora and fauna of Gerês and the way of living in Fafião village. Everyone in the village knew him and that means that these kind of tours really benefit local people. You should try it !!!

P.S. trekking boots would be really helpful

This trip is the most amazing experience for us during our one week holiday in Porto. Our guides(Luis and Marcelo) are the most happy and friendly guides that we met! They really have deep connections with local people and showed us not only the beautiful nature but the way of living. The food was amazing at local restaurant and they tried to offset the carbon footprint by planting a tree every time they brought visitors. We really enjoyed this trip and hope can do it again in the future

This experience is incredible in every way. Our tour guide Miguel was absolutely fantastic! He did a terrific job at making us feel welcome and teaching us about the local culture and history of the places we visited. The meal served for lunch was a very good authentic Portuguese cuisine that our entire group enjoyed. The waterfalls and swimming were enjoyable and beautiful however Miguel is the one who really made this tour as special as it was. Highly recommend this experience, it was the best thing we did during our stay in Portugal!

I am writing this review because I relied on reviews like these in choosing this tour. I’m so glad I did! This tour was a highlight of our time in Portugal and if you like getting out of the cities and into nature you will love it too. Luis was our guide and he was AMAZING!! He made it fun and entertaining all while helping to unify our small group and share so much about the park, the country and the village we visited. He made sure everyone had a great time and navigated the different ages and interests of our group with ease. The drive was a little long but totally worth it. My 19 yo son and I especially enjoyed our time in the local village and swimming in the beautiful lagoon. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

We had a great day with our very enthusiastic guide Luis who taught us a lot about the culture of the area. We visited great spots and in between we had a surprisingly delicious lunch in the small village. We highly recommend this trip to everyone who is seeking a bit of adventure, likes the nature and great sceneries. We would do this again!

This came highly recommended from friends and now we know why. The experience to see the park, the waterfalls and the village is magnificent. But more than that, the people you meet in the village and the care with which our guide Luis navigated us and explained everything was just amazing. We went with my parents and he made them feel at ease and they still talk about how awesome the experience was. Luis, Nuno and the Oporto adventure team have created this experience with such thought and care - i would highly recommend it!
