One of our favorite experiences of the whole trip! Pedro was an accommodating, friendly, knowledgable guide who was great company. As it was windy, we kayaked for most of the time but Pedro towed a SUP up the entire river by kayak so one of our family members could try it out for the first time- just one example of how Pedro went above and beyond to make our experience amazing. We were the only ones on the whole river which was incredible. The scenery was stunning and we were even able to kayak up and down some tiny rapids (although not necessary for those who would rather avoid them). Pedro then took us on a short walk to a great scenic spot where we had some delicious pasteis de nata. After kayaking back down the river, Pedro took us to a local restaurant to try the infamous Francesinhas. Overall, a relaxing and beautiful day that provided a great escape from the busier Porto. A must-do when visiting the region.

Pedro is a well-traveled local and excellent tour guide. Our day tour was customized to our preference, and included a boat cruise down the Douro river, picture perfect vistas from the tops of mountains, a visit to a winery with port tasting and visits to historic towns. Pedro picked us up and dropped us off at the guesthouse where we were staying near Marco de Canaveses. The day was filled with insightful conversation and, of course, several stops for Portuguese coffee!
Thank you, Pedro! Hope to see you next time!

From a special day, Pedro has made it even more special! This day will be recorded in our memories! It's a very good nice ride to relax and full of fun. I advise to everyone who want a different experience, with adrenaline but without fears.

I thought I was just going to try SUP (stand up paddle) and what I got was an amazing experience exploring the beautiful landscapes of the Douro and Paiva rivers. It was exactly what I needed after a stressful week at work.
Pedro was incredibly nice. Always sharing lovely details about our surroundings. Midway through our tour we stopped on the riverside and he offered us some waters and snacks.

For those of you who are (like I was) a bit scared of SUP (or think it is somewhat dangerous) don't think about it any longer. It's super easy! Just try it, relax and enjoy the wonderful sights.
