We had a great experience with Cesar. The fishing village of Sesimbra and the beach are delightful and the wine tour was super informative and relaxed! The nice views from the Arrabida mountains were an added bonus! Cesar is very passionate about the local culture and food and we had a very pleasant time.
Felipe is a true job master! Trust him to bring you to the right place at the right time. We snorkel in a beautiful bay of the National park. Highly recommended experience, different from the usual ones, for the tourists visiting Lisbon.
Fantastic ! David & Anibal are very attentive. The experience is complete and adapted to each level : jump, climb, swim, potholing.. We had a great experience
Exciting experience - snorkeling on an (almost) lonely beach.
An excellent morning exploring the paradise of Arrábida.
