    What about a fantastic experience that I recommend to everyone, from the first to the last minute our guide Diogo was always present, answering all our questions in a kind and smiling way with great professionalism. A beautiful path, a walk in the midst of the unspoiled nature of this region and what about the superlative lunch, quality of food all strictly BIO. I recommend everyone a day like the one my wife and I spent. Top

    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!

    We would like to thank Detours for accommodating us when we couldn't make an earlier date. Our guide Kevin was amazing! His love of humanity, his country and career, will be something we will never forget. He is wise beyond his years! He was an integral part of our tour. We would highly recommend Detours for any and all tours visitors may be considering taking in Portugal! Thanks again!
