From the top of the mountain, you will be able to enjoy the most wonderful viewpoints. Next, move on to an old and isolated village in the mountains where you can observe the local community in their daily activities and life.

It was a nice mountain trip around Porto. Regularly a nice stopover was made as described. The guide told about the area and occasionally took pictures. Unfortunately with his smartphone and the video that is normally in the package, we did not receive it. Only the photos were delivered to us via whatsapp. But definitely a must to do.

This trip was absolutely amazing! picked up from our apartment and taken to the beautiful mountains, where the views were incredible. We also learned a lot about the history of Porto and were shown Roman mines, and visited a picturesque village with only 12 inhabitants; it was something out of a fairytale. Ricardo was an amazing host, made us feel very comfortable and safe, and I would thoroughly recommend! :)

Fantastic. Beautiful scenery and fabulous information shared by our driver. Very prompt and efficient service, all delivered by an outstanding driver who answered all our questions. He went above and beyond by taking all photographs along the way, which was a pleasant change from having to use our own phones. Amazing trip.
