    1. Petra Perrin

      It was an excellente trip, well organised, sympathic tour guide and if ever I had a question, I got quickly an answer

    2. Mia Levitt Frank

      Our full day with Samual was superb. A knowledgeable, attentive and friendly guide, in the most beautiful scenery imaginable. One of our favorite hikes ever! We hope to return

    3. Mahesh

      My partner and I did this tour before the pandemic and during a year and hand stay in Portugal it still stands out in our memories. Samuel was an interesting guide and took us through beautiful unique nature in Portugal’s north and gave us lovely rural village experience with a personal touch. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a guided nature tour and so glad to hear it’s still going strong!

    4. Phil Colton

      Samual was exposed to Covid so as a precautionary approach he had his associate, Valdo conduct the tour. The hikes and visit to the waterfalls were good and Valdo was very knowledgeable about the area and it’s flora and fauna. He also took us across the border to see the hotsprings in Spain. Lunch at a local restaurant was fantastic. Overall it was a great experience in the park

    5. Carine Raats

      It was all perfect!
      Samuel took us to beautiful views. The picnic was so idyllic, the hidden place to swim in the water was great and he was an excellent guide.

    6. Emily and Kyle

      My husband and I did this tour in June 2022, and it was incredible! We did two wonderful hikes, enjoyed lunch, and had lovely drives each way from Porto. Our guide was a true naturalist who clearly loved the park, and had great stories and anecdotes. I would highly recommend this experience for your time in northern Portugal.

    7. Roelands

      Great one day tour of the park Geres. We were picked up by Carlos at our place and he drove us to the park. He told us everything about the wildlife and environment (he is a biologist) and took a lot of pictures for us. We came to spots we would never have found on our own. A great picnic was arranged. We would strongly recommend this tour! We were with a family of five. One of our girls found this the highlight of our holidays!

    8. Krzysztof

      The tour was very interesting and relaxing. We saw some wonderful views and places of which usual tourists rarely know. Our guide Samuel told us a lot of interesting stories and facts about the Geres National Park and people living there. He was also very helpful during the booking process. I totally recommend going for a hike with him. It is a much better experience than going on your own:))

    9. Danielle Liberman

      My mother and I had a great time!
      We took this a one day tour: walking about 6 km in the nature than had a nice lunch and than walked about 2 km to the waterfalls.
      It was beautiful road with a great tour guid!

    10. Terry Timoruski

      If your looking to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy nature this is an excellent tour. We were picked up at our apartment where we drove to the park. Excellent views, easy walks, and a great lunch. The drive back had stunning views of the mountain ranges. We are avid hikers back home in Canada and we learned so much from Carlos on nature as he is very knowledgeable. It is a long day but well worth to see a special part of Portugal.

    11. Terry Timoruski

      If your looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and spend some time with nature this a great tour. Carlos was very knowledgeable and informative. We were picked up at our apartment, drove to the park and had an awesome lunch. It was a long day but well worth it. The drive back through the three villages had stunning views. The hikes were easy and it was nice to smell some good mountain air.

    12. Athena

      Amazing day from hike to pleasant lunch to stunning pools. Carlos is very passionate about fauna and flora. He shared so much amd was lovely. Thank you!

      • Samuel Costa

        Thank you! 🙂

    13. Ralph

      Excellent hiking trip. Well thought combination of hiking , magnificent viewpoints, swimming location and tour in the national park. The mountain/forest-air is very inspiring and brings my mind back to nature and gives a relaxing feeling.
      Very friendly, service minded guides (Samuel / Carlos) and my family learned a lot about nature, Portugal and the specialities of the park Peneda-Gerês. Kudos and a big thank you!
      Almost forgot to mention: Lunch was awesome as well!

      • Samuel Costa

        Thank you for the feedback! 🙂
