Fabulous views which change with every twist and turn of the river - calm waters, craggy rocks, and soaring birds. Blissful paddle 14k round trip - not another soul in sight. It's worth getting in your kayak whatever the distance you do. Unmissable.

I would say it was the highlight of my stay in Miranda as well. I began the kayak tour alone with Pedro at 8:30 in the morning and enjoyed the trip unti 1pm. The wilness of the douro is impressive. Pedro schew me a lot of birds like egypsian vautour and also different plants that make the diversity and the interest of the international natufal parc. But I had also the oportunity to discuss about different subjects. I felt the moment like a tour with a friend. I recommend the tour definitely.

Is got everything I ever want - unspoilt nature, off the beaten track, a chance to do some proper kayaking, and a fantasticly charming guide with an encyclopedic knowledge of birds and local history. If you like being on a package tour then the diesel chugging cruise and non native captive bird show (next door) might be for you, but if you want to do something truly memorable then get in a kayak and head to parts of the river seen by fewer than a dozen people each year.

We just returned from Spain and Portugal and our hike with Pedro was one of the highlights of our 3 weeks in Europe. I cannot give out enough superlatives on Pedro who runs this group. He speaks perfect English, is exceedingly knowledgeable about the area, tailors the trip to his group (my wife and I), and is just a SUPERB host. If you want an outdoor experience you will always remember get involved with Pedro he is just terrific. He will build a trip to what you are looking for. The Miranda area and Duoro River are gorgeous and should be experienced in an outdoor setting. You won't be sorry that you used this guide service.

A word to the wise the gates open 1 hour before the tour begins. What you need to remember that there is a 1 hour time difference if you have come from the spainish side. The cruise is on Portuguese only but is informative and the show after well worth the wait . Seeing a golden eagle take to the skies was breathtaking
