Our super guide Diogo gave us an unforgettable day! Picked up in a lovely airo van, stopover with coffee and some goodies, lots of information about the area, a beautiful walk with the possibility to cool off halfway in the river or enjoy chocolate cookies and after the walk a super lunch with local products at a great restaurant, green wine, own cow meat and homemade pudding. You should definitely do this tour, Detour and Diogo have given us a wonderful memory with this tour, thanks!

Day at the top as much by the quality of the hike as by the organization and the kindness of our guide Diogo! You can go there with your eyes closed (you will still have to open them to climb the steps;))

A wonderful walk through nature. Nature lovers will be delighted with this tour. Delicious, local lunch and the guide Afonso was just great. Gave us a lot of information about the region during the tour.

Provides an excellent day, in contact with nature, enjoying the panoramic view that the bridge provides us. We feel the sense of walking in heaven. It's just wonderful.
