Amazing experience!

We bought the tour through "Get your guide" and got quick response from André and Natasha from Lookaroundtours, who delivered the tour. Breathtaking views and amazing to see real footprints from dinosaurs! Our guide André was very knowledgeable and interested in nature, especially plants and told us a lot about the plants we passed. He also told us the history from when they build the church and more. We strongly recommend this tour with him!

Very nice hike, which took us to the highest point of Arrábida natural park, in the company of a local French-speaking guide (André) with a constant smile, with perfect knowledge of the flora and fauna. A snack was included, sandwich, fruit, and water. We recommend this hike to nature and mountain lovers. A word of advice: hiking shoes are essential, as well as long-sleeved pants and T-shirts

The trip was wonderful !!!! The guide speaks good French and English and is very friendly. We had explanations on the areas visited. The tour is absolutely to do. The landscapes are magnificent and not possible to discover the south of Portugal otherwise. We had a great half day. You must be equipped with good walking shoes that do not slip. TO DO!!!! Thanks to our guide for this tour !!!!
