    The suspension bridge and Paiva walkways are an unique experience, highlighting the beautiful Portuguese countryside . The walk was about 8 kms long following the Paiva River , which was beautiful even on a rainy day . Our guide Ricardo was friendly and attentive… helping in any way he could to make it a wonderful day . We enjoyed a delicious traditional lunch served family style The tour ended with a boat ride in Aveiro and a quick stop at the pretty houses along the beach in Costa Nova

    The weather was not in our favour for this trip BUT when we met Ricardo he was so energetic and positive that this would change! The drive wasn’t that long, we arrived at the 516 bridge and we were so lucky to be the only ones there. The views are breathtaking and you are fully submerged in the country side! Ricardo came very prepared with ponchos and umbrellas. He was incredibly thoughtful and kind, whilst informing us about the history of not only the attractions but Portugal as-well. He is without any doubt the best tour guide leaders we have met. Paiva walkways we’re my favourite! Again, we were extremely lucky to be the only ones there in our group. The views along the way are changing and breathtaking! We saw so much wildlife and the river running through was stunning, me and my partner were certainly taking our time taking it all in! This is definitely a MUST do tour to be apart of, this made our first trip to Porto very special!

    What a fantastic day! The rain and wind added to the drama of walking over the suspension bridge! The lunch was fabulous with meat that fell apart at the touch of your fork. Aveiro tour was great too dispite the rain. Ricardo was a fantastic tour guide and I loved the small group tour. If you are looking for adventure outside the city, this is your tour!! You will have a fantastic spectacular day.
