A MUST TRY ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! This is such a unique icing on the cake for your holidays 🤍! We had a pleasure to experience this tour with Alex as a guide. He picked us up and told us about the countryside on the way to the river. The place he picked for paddling was just magical and he ensured we could manage to stand on our board before the start. The tour itself was so much fun and Alex, again, told us everything he knew about the nature around us and guided us safely through the calm waters. In the middle of the tour we had a swim on a small private beach. All in all, it was lovely and I recommend this experience with Alex to all people 🙂!

Balade magnifique sur une partie du Douro à l'abri de la masse touristique. Alex a été génial de bout en bout. La route pour aller au lieu du Paddle surf était absolument belle. Beaucoup de paysages à couper le souffle. La balade en Paddle était super. On est au milieu du Douro entouré par la nature et des vignes. En plus, vous pouvez vous baigner ou tomber dans l'eau sans danger.

Amazing experience! Not expecting this to be so incredible! Alex was always super thougthfull and super pacient with our "not so good" skills to help us to stand up on the paddle. The view was so incredible and in the end he brought some snacks and we had a meal next to the river. I super recommend this if you want to chill from the routine, you will be super relaxed at the end of the day and with an experience for life. I will repeat for sure with some friends, i falled in love! Thank you Alex!

PADDLE BOARDING WITH ALEX WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR SUMMER IN PORTO!!! Alex took us to a special location along the Douro that we would have never found ourselves. Beautiful scenery, calm waters and excellent equipment made for a very safe and fun experience! Alex is extremely professional and since he grew up locally has incredible knowledge about the Douro and the history of the surrounding areas. It was truly a pleasure to spend the day on the river with Alex as our tour guide. A MUST DO EXPERIENCE IN PORTO!!
