Gerês Tour from Braga

We’ll drive up and down the hills of Gerês and show you what few people ever get to enjoy. A Keen Tours day trip to Gerês offers a complete experience unfolding the History, Culture and Nature on the Peneda-Gerês National Park.

Explore the mountains in a small group setting, hiking through centuries old paths that cut through luxuriant woods and reaching the best viewpoints for fantastic views.

Experience a forest included in the European Network of Biogenetic Reserves and a bit of the 318 km (198 miles) of the geira – the roman highway Via XVIII from Braga (former Bracara Augusta) to Astorga (Asturica Augusta), in Spain.

Depending on the weather, bathe in the fresh, clear waters of the mountain waterfalls or soak in the hot springs used since (at least) the romans, admire the newborn baby horses in the woods or enjoy the magnificent colour palette of the leaves falling – whatever the season, the tour is bound to amaze you.

2yrs ago I had a private tour with Pedro and Rita of Keen Tours When in June I moved permanently to Braga, first thing was to get in touch with them to see if they did tours on regular basis..they sure do..and now a month in did already 3 with them..with 2 more scheduled. They are super knowledgeable, each hike is in a different place, they know history of the area, know locals and places not normally frequented by other people and tours. Each time is new, exciting and exhilarating. They always know special spots for dips in the rivers and near waterfalls, hidden in magical spots..with Covid they provide masks as they are very invironment aware. Special friendly people. I have also experienced their picnics..wow.

We booked a paragliding tour in August. Rita sent us the bank details and we paid 200 euros for two paragliding flights (that only lasted 5 minutes per person due to the fact that we had to wait 2 hours even though we had an appointment at 5 or 5.30 pm), a set of photographs and snacks. Even though we were satisfied with the overall experience we felt that the price was way too high for merely two 5 minutes rides, when others were in the air for almost 20 minutes. We understand that weather is a factor and not every ride can last 20 minutes but we are outraged that we didn’t get the pictures we paid for. Rita took photographs and assured us we would get them by email in a reasonable time. We sent various emails: - 1st one on August 24th to merely ask when we would the pictures - 2nd one on September 30th (we got a reply on October 2nd and Rita told us there was a delay and we would the pictures as soon as possible) - 3rd one on December 2nd (we got no reply) Almost 6 months later and we still didn’t get the pictures we paid for. Overall we are very much dissatisfied with the experience. If we had known we would have booked another tour with more professional guides and we would have gladly paid a bit more to get a better experience. Bruno

Pedro and Rita were the consummate hosts! They gave us a walking tour of Braga history from the time of the ancient Romans, to learning about modern local traditions. We saw beautiful Roman archeological sites, shared great food and drink, and toured the Se Cathedral. They are both very knowledgeable about local history and are great storytellers! We highly recommend their tours to anyone wanting to experience northern Portugal in a more personal way while having a wonderful time!

Pedro collected us at our campground at Lima Escape (clamping highly recommend as a base). He is very friendly and personal and tries to take into account individual wishes for the tour. He has all kinds of expert knowledge in the history of the area the and can tell you all about the different plants and animal life too. He took us to a very authentic restaurant, make sure to tell him about any dietary issues as he can arrange that too. He’s very friendly and easy to talk to an overall we had a great time, Area is absolutely breathtaking beautiful. Do not try to do it without a guide!!! Drive is challenging and you really will benefit from having the narrative that goes with it.

We had to alter our booking for kayaking down the river in Porto, due to lack of water for safe passage along the river. We opted to try canyoning, and it turned out to be a superb day. From the beginning all communication with Keen Tours was prompt, professional and friendly. The day of our trip, we were collected promptly and driven in comfort to the remote rural villages in the Geres national park. Our guide was Pedro, who had an amazing knowledge and very obvious love of the area and it's flora fauna and people. He was brilliant. Our canyoning expert guide was Carlos, who was equally proficient in his field, and though we were novice, was very patient with us, and relaxed professional and so good at getting all the gear set up, he made it look easy which I know it wasn't. We had such good fun canyoning down the river, and a lovely tour of the local area, seeing the villages and wild ponies, also a delicious hearty meal, made with local produce in a great little restaurant. Highly recommend this tour company. I only wish we were here longer and could go and do some stuff with them. I have no doubt it would be brilliant. Priceless memories. Thanks
