The bee experience with Ricardo was really exceptional. It was like National Geographic coming alive as Ricardo shared his wealth of knowledge and passion about keeping and protecting bees. It was amazing to be able to see everything so close up and have a real hands-on experience. Ricardo is authentic and a great storyteller, I highly recommend it!

[EN] Ricardo is very knowledgeable and friendly. This experience was wonderful. it was the first time we had contact with bees. We could see everything it was mentioned in the description. It really worth. At the end we tried the honey (at home, because of the new covid rules) and it was really really really good. Tastes and smells very well! [PT] Adorámos esta experiência com o Ricardo. O Ricardo é muito simpático e tinha conhecimento e paciência para responder a todas as nossas perguntas e curiosidades! Conseguimos ver tudo o que está referido na descrição da experiência. No final provámos o mel (em casa, por causa das regras de segurança) e era simplesmente espectacular! Cheirava e sabia maravilhosamente bem!! Vale a pena toda a experiência.

Ricardo war sehr fürsorglich und sympathisch. Er hat interessant erklärt, wie Bienenvölker leben und welchen Gefahren sie heute ausgesetzt sind. Wir konnten Waben aus der Nähe genau sehen und haben gesehen, wie Bienen schlüpfen. Es war eine Klasse!! Wir haben das sehr genossen und auch noch einige Insights für Porto ergattert

This was a wonderful experience, Ricardo was very informative on the life of Bees and how to take care of them properly. I recommend this to anyone in the area that has an interest in protecting the Bees and trying some tasty honey!

This was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever done on AirBnB. Ricardo was so kind and knowledgeable about the bees and really made my boyfriend and I feel comfortable. At first I was a little scared of the bees and by the end of the experience I felt so comfortable I was ready to have a hive of my own! I couldn’t recommend this experience enough to anyone who visits Lisbon. It truly is a unique experience. We met Ricardo at the nearby harbor and he was kind enough to drive us to the hive location just up the road since we didn’t have a car. He even dropped us off at the train station after the experience. If in Lisbon, this experience is a must!!
