This was an amazing experience with a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. We had a big group and she asked us our names once and then remembered them all. Luciana took us through a very beautiful part of the Douro, which she actually selected for us because it was closer to our accommodations. She picked us fresh grapes on the tour and really took the time to make sure we all enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely do this again.

This is probably one of the most literally awesome things I’ll ever do and see in my lifetime: I went paddle boarding on the Rio Arda, and it was beautiful 😍 The first 5 minutes were a bit shaky (literally) but with the enthusiasm and encouragement of my amazing instructor, Luciana, I managed to stand up and paddled comfortably along the river for a good couple of hours 🙌 Luciana even picked some grapes for us as we paddled, so we sat in the middle of this lake eating fresh grapes on our boards! I cannot recommend this experience enough, and can’t wait to go back to do it again. Thank you, Luciana!

Just do it! Flower People X are Absolutely fantastic. Great adventure!! Luciana guided my husband and I up the river past splashing springs and shady groves. We discovered ruins and contemporary vineyards layered above. She is relaxed yet alive. A wonderful instructor suitable for a variety of groups and abilities. We are not new to paddle boarding yet enjoyed her instruction and the river is perfect for all. Thank you!!!!
