We were surrounded by absolutely beautiful landscapes and our tour guide was fun and engaging. Only word of caution is pack sandwiches and/or plenty of snacks. We were not so lucky! It was a long day and without food is pretty tough.

We had a great time on the hike and it was so fun to swim in the lagoon! In the morning on the way up to the park, we stopped at a place where you could get a quick breakfast or buy a sandwich to eat later when you get to the lagoon. During the hike, the different couples within the group went at their own pace, but our guide made sure everyone was doing ok and kept everyone in sight. The hike was not too difficult, but it was nice to take a refreshing swim once we got to the lagoon. The views were amazing. It was a perfect day!

This tour was cancelled due to weather conditions in the area. However I was offered the Douro experience and had the best day one could ever imagine. Our driver tour guide Mogul was Mr personality plus and we had an amazing day.
