► We pre-booked a half-day guided tour of the reserve for August 2019. We communicated via email, they were very helpful and kind.
We usually like self-guided tours but this time we decided to diversify.
► We met Adrian at Campo do Gerês. Adrian, who also drove the car, told us about the place, took us to beautiful waterfalls and other places we would not have come alone.
We really enjoyed it. Thank you Adrian for a lovely day!
► The bottom line: Highly recommended!

Sara was an excellent guide, funny and engaging. The horses were well-trained and well cared for. The 2-hour ride brought us through some amazing scenery with great views of the mountains and nature. Highly recommended!

My friend and I had a wonderful time on our 3-day riding tour with Henrique. Everything was well organized, from our pick up in Braga to the meals.

The horses are extremely well cared for: well-groomed, well-shod, bathed daily, hooves treated, etc. The tack is well-maintained and of high quality. We also had half chaps to use.

Flora and Sebastian had sweet personalities and they were fun to ride for the duration of our trip. Beautiful, healthy horses!!

We were delighted by both the restaurant meals and the picnic lunches during the ride. These were no packed sandwich lunches: these were multi-course spreads. I really cannot say enough about the food, and I'll be dreaming about those salads for years.

We also enjoyed our stay at Casa dos Bernardos in the quiet countryside. The word idyllic doesn't do it justice. It was a slice of heaven.

What an AMAZING day! We booked the full day tour and it completely exceeded our expectations. I’m always concerned about the conditions of the horses/stables for these types of excursions and I’ve never experienced a place where the horses are so well cared for, loved and beautifully groomed. They were well brushed down with clean hooves in the am and after our morning ride they were rinsed down. You can see the genuine love and care between the owners/staff and the horses - this was what really struck us. Such affectionate interaction between the horses and the people. Enrique (and Francisco) were our guides and they were extremely professional, safe and showed us some beautiful routes through quaint villages, up to the hilltops including a nice surprise in the afternoon with a gorgeous view of the river. We had an extra surprise for lunch at a local restaurant which was delicious! Thank you Enrique for the incredible experience today! We will be back for the 3 day trip next time! Muito obrigado!

I booked a 2 hour ride with my partner and we had a wonderful experience - it was just the two of us and the guide and we were taken on a beautiful trail which was mostly in the shade - highlights included a view over the lake and riding through a traditional stone village. Our guide was experienced and although spoke limited English, he ensured that we were always ok. The horses were in great condition and this was an authentic way to view the area - would highly recommend!

A very nice day to do a ride in the Gerês park with horses. It tike about 50/60 minutes the total ride but it seems faster than that. It was incredible. I would recomend it to do it. The horses are very gentle and well tiched. I would repeat the ride one day for sure.

We had two different rides on two different days. The rides were quite different, but both simply magnificent through beautiful countryside. The horses are strong, well-trained and extremely well cared for. The organisation was excellent. On one trip we had lunch in a traditional Portuguese restaurant, which served plentiful delicious food. On the other we had a picnic in a beautiful spot, again delicious and more than we could eat. We thank Enrique and Julie once more for two days that made our holiday.

Mr. Miguel Faria is the owner of this great place. in his place you have a lot of activities, accommodation, bar-restaurant etc. Before we arrived to Portugal I was with a great, quick and very informative emails correspondence. When we were at Portugal I was speaking with him and texting him a lot of times and he was always patient, ready and willingness to help and he even arranged for us a canyoning activity with another company. With Miguel and his instructors we made a very fun activity zip line \ slide.
150 mt. down with of course all the safety equipment. the scenery was great blue water of a lake. this is a pure fun. my wife, my son (14 years old) and myself had great fun experience. afterwards we set in the bar-restaurant had soft drinks, good coffee and ice lolly. near us from the stables a riding tour was living for a ride, the horses were look very good, strong and relaxed. on the place you have also toilet clean and nice. the prices are good and it value for money. free and large parking zone. Conclusion great place very recommended activity and trust on Miguel that he will do everything in his power that you will leave happy and with smiles on your faces. Well done Miguel.
