What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"Paisagens excelentes, pessoal muito simpático e prestável."
★★★★★
"Exceptional fun and very well organised We visited in December and had some of the best fun this year. Leonor was extremely helpful in arranging the details and coordinating transport to and from Lisbon. The team at Verente are the nicest people and I highly recommend a visit."
★★★★★
"We were lucky to find we were just a group of 4, me and my 2 teenagers (19/17) and one other person. Pedro guided us well and we had a fantastic afternoon. It's an amazing bit of coastline, there was plenty of adrenaline for my teenagers with the cliff jumps, we all enjoyed the physical challenge of the activity on a day when the sea was quite choppy (it included a mix of swimming, clambering along the rocks, jumping in, a short zip wire) and we loved the boat ride back into the harbour in the early evening light. We'd definitely recommend this."
★★★★★
"We were a group of 10 friends and had an amazing day! The guys who guided us are well trained, patient, and good company. They really added to the experience! The tour it self was great for beginners and people looking for a bit more adventure. The surrounding nature is beautiful and the tour takes exactly long enough to really enjoy it but not get too exhausted. Overall a well guided, great day for a great price."
★★★★★
"People like Pedro and Christina make a difference when it comes to hospitality and cating about somebody getting the best for his time and money Loads of love from Chris & Tina"
★★★★★
"We got picked up in Lisbon at 08 AM by the nicest guy who joked and made the trip start great! Everything was planned great, people were nice and helpful. The activities were so much fun and the area was beautiful. The climbing was a bit tough at times, so if you have any health issues make sure to tell them beforehand. But there was room for everyone and it seemed that all the people in our group had a great time (people of all ages) We sure did! Pack some lunch to eat when you return to the coast as the activities take alot of energy. They provided water and (the most delicious) cake during the trip, so we were energised during the trip. If you don't have shorts or shoes to use during the caoastering, fear not - they have some different sizes you can borrow so you don't have to buy new shorts/shoes before (as we did). Would definitely recommend!"
