very much recommended one day nature trip. I advise a "do it yourself" approach and not a group. easy to get there, easy to take a taxi back to the parking lot. no need for a fancy tour guide.

Mario picked us up from our hotel at 9:00am and drove us from Porto to the Paiva Walkways, which turned out to be the highlight of our trip. I would so highly recommend it to everyone, and Detours provided a great service!
