We really enjoyed the tour. We would be picked up right in front of the door and Afonso (the guide) really told us a lot about Porto and also the Portuguese culture and nature. He showed us nice spots and gave general recommendations on what else to do here. What I found particularly nice was that they are really committed to rebuilding and preserving native plants. He showed us the plant project. And of course the falls were spectacular.
