What people are saying about Poça da Dona Beija

We really enjoyed this family friendly, interesting, and well worth tour. 6 stars would be an appropriate rating. Miguel has been an awsome, knowledgeable, attentive, flexible, professional and very pleasant guide. He went above the call of duty and included a few extra stops/activities that our whole family truly appreciated. The place is a wonder of nature, lunch was a delicious local recipe cozido in an informal restaurant, in which our small daughter felt really comfortable. 100% recommendable! Olga, Alex and Luna
