  • When booking try to make it very clear which drinks are included and not included in the menu.
  • Don´t be too worried about the quality of food, it's hard to eat badly in Porto.
  • Uber is always a good option to move in Porto, between restaurant and bars.

3) It´s a mistake to think is boring!

Adrenaline hunters often think that Stand-up Paddle is going to be a boring activity, which could not be more far from the truth!
There is a feeling of personal overcoming on top of the board, jumps and challenges that each particular river provides and that the adrenaline addict does not want to miss!
After all, it´s wrong to deny something you have never done and lose the chance to surprise yourself!

4) If you like nature, you will love this experience!

The rivers are calm, so is normal to see near perfect reflections in the water! The trees get out of the river banks and make you feel cosy and small! It´s a warm feeling to have!
The local vegetation is exuberant with intense green colors from trees, vineyards and plants! The presence of the birds in the form of beautiful melodies happens all the time contrasting with the natural quietness and silence of the area. The contemplation is 100% assured!

Canyoning In Porto / What the adventurous have to say about it!!

 Canyoning In Porto

 “We had never done Canyoning before and were quite excited about it. Our expectations were met entirely!”

Prepare yourself for physical activity and the adventure of a lifetime. The guides made sure that everybody was safe and sound. We had some amazing jumping, zipline and climbing opportunities. Nevertheless, the ones who didn't feel comfortable to do it, didn't have to.

“I can honestly say this was one of the coolest things I have ever done wit my friends!”

Oporto adventure Tours picked us up from our hostel and dropped us off at the end of the day, which made travel incredibly simple.
The dudes were friendly and made us feel right at home. They did not push anyone in the group out of their comfort zone and were constantly checking in with everyone to make sure they were okay. The canyon was stunning, the weather perfect, and the experience life changing. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!!

“Amazing canyoning tour in porto - worth every penny”

Before i booked the tour i saw other companies that offered canyoning tours in Porto.
Oporto adventure Tours was the most expensive, but trust me, after the tour i don't think that the price pay the service. Communication with nuno (booking manager) was easy and efficient.
The equipment to do canyoning was new, comfortable, flexible and even the boots were top adidas outdoor with an amazing grip!
They provide pick up /drop off service in Porto which made my day a very relaxing one!
Excellent value for money!!
