Punctual hotel pick-up for the transfer. Arrived at the starting point very warm welcome, everything was ready. We received the equipment and were instructed very well. Afterwards SUP ride on the river Rio Lima. The guide was very friendly and helpful. The river ideal for SUP rides. The guide also took photos which we received afterwards. After the SUP tour, a light meal and drinks were offered on the garden terrace before the driver brought us back to Porto in good time. + : We forgot our sunglasses in the car; the driver made an extra lap and brought the sunglasses back to our hotel. Very attentive and nice. General, very friendly and cordial staff. - Many Thanks
