Great balance: nature, activities, learning

My daughter and I had an awesome day in the nature reserve. We got to see two totally different areas of the park, had a very nice hike to a waterfall, learned a lot about the flora and fauna. Very pleasant. One day later we got a photo documentation about our trip. This is all thanks to our guide Pedro, who is very nice person and very knowledgeable about the area; he even showed us which “steps” to take when climbing down to the waterfall.

Excellent tour, excellent and knowledgeable guideguide

The tour included beautiful landscapes, local history, fauna & flora, region typical lunch, a taste of the natural springs and a wonderful guide Pedro. The beautiful old Roman road was a pleasure to pass on either by car or by foot. The various trees in the woods are part of an unique ecosystem, combining Mediterranean and Atlantic species, and served as a peaceful environment for the day. We highly recommend taking this tour!

Very nice guide. Enthusiastic and knows a lot. We enjoyed our day despite the weather being very wet. The tour really takes the whole day but never gets boring.
