Our excursion was excellent from booking to finale. Very easy communication with team, we had trouble parking at the meeting point but they came to us. Rafael and Marta were the absolute best guides. They always kept us informed, safe and very talkative about the tour, surrounding park and Portugal. Via ferrata sections were fun and challenging and the abseiling was great. Our ages ranged from 12 yo to 49 yo. Views from the mountain were unbelievable. Highly recommend for any group wanting a fun, challenging outdoor activity.

Our Via Ferrata experience was fantastic and I would really recommend it - it is a wonderful and exciting way of exploring the Arrabida National Park and immersing yourself in the landscape. Our guides (David and Marta) were brilliant, and adapted the tour to our ability and our needs. As we had pre-existing experiences they introduced a couple of variations that made the experience more stimulating and interesting for us. The landscape was glorious, David and Marta's company and expertise was fantastic, and we would love to come back again!

This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip. I did the highest jump of my life! We started gradually and were explained where it is safe to jump from and so I was able to overcome my fear. Definitely recommended!

I think this is the craziest thing I've ever done. I have a desk job... so that's not hard... but the teamw as experienced and empathetic and fun. I think this is my favorite thing I've ever done on a vacation... beautiful views... adrenaline rushes... just do it. Don't think. Just go. You won't regret it. By the way... this was also the advice of the guide while I stared down considering my life choices and fear of heights... he was right. I didn't regret it. :)

We had a excellent climbing expeirence with our three guides on 10th August 2019. 2 of us already had plenty climbing expeirence whereas the other 3 in our group were more beginners. Our 3 guides were super prepared for mixed ability and had prepared 5 top ropes and had quick draws for us to also do sport routes. Excellent guides, great banter, would highly recommend! Thank you so much to all of you 😊
