    An amazing day !!! Ricardo was the most kindest and professional host. He assisted so much and ran the day so smoothly so our group could see everything. Dinner was fantastic and authentic. My favorite part really was meeting 4 others from different parts of the world and together we spoke about all of our country & cultures. Felt like I was in another part of Canada, but a more spectacular view of Portugal. I would do this again in a heartbeat and so should you !!!

    Very friendly day in a small group of 6 people with a very pleasant and very interesting guide. Very nice 9 km hike along a river with rapids. Culinary experience appreciated at noon (well-simmered Sunday dish of Portuguese grandmothers). Nice discovery of Aveiro and pleasant boat trip. The short stop at Costa Nova was also appreciable.
