What people are saying about Guimaraes

This tour was full of pulse-pounding moments for me: the anxiety of being driven along a narrow path along a steep mountain, the shock of jumping into a frigid lagoon beneath a waterfall, the hike back up the trail. Less "exciting" but still totally worth it were exploring the small town of Fafião, having a delicious lunch, and getting to know the other passengers on our tour. Miguel and Katarina were fantastic guides. Even though the afternoon was rainy, it was still a great experience overall, and one I'd recommend.

it was really good experience, to explore the national park in winter. we were lucky with the weather and one of the best guides (Renate). Renate was very knowledgeable as well as very enthusiastic in sharing the information. I'd really recommend the tour to everyone who wants to see the natural beauty of Portugal
