Shortly after, we were picked up from Porto and taken to a special shortcut to reach the Arouca Bridge entrance. When we got to the bridge, we were not so exhausted as the others coming from the car park. Crossing the bridge was an excellent experience. It is really worth walking. Then we went down the Paiva Walkways, which was about 5 km. It was quite hard because of the heat, but we survived. The views were incredible. After that, we were driven to a village for a local lunch. Delicious food, nice chats over the table. Then we went to Aveiro, a stunning town over the ocean called a Portuguese Venice. Our guide, Norberto, was really so friendly, informative,very well organised and tried to do his best to make our trip outstanding. And in fact, he did. I truly recommend this trip as we enjoyed it very much.
I had a great time on the tour with Carlos. Wwe were a small group (perks of travelling off-season), so I got to ask a million questions to which I got very topical and interesting answers. The tour around Aveiro is half boat, half walking; it was nice, but a little underwhelming considering its reputation. I enjoyed Costa Nova a lot; if you can, walk over the dune to get to the ocean, the views are something else.
I booked this tour online with no expectations and it was a great tour. Although it was quick (30ish min), it did help us get familiar with the area. Our guide Bruno was able to point out different attractions and restaurants to try. He was very knowledgeable, funny and spoke 3+ languages. Overall the tour was great.
Paulo was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. We had a fantastic time with him and it gave us a whole other perspective of Portugal. We enjoyed the information he shared with us and the historical background of Aviero.
Our family enjoyed this activity, our guide was very detailed and funny. I recommend everyone that visit Aveiro to do it
