Great, rewarding hike
Feb 2020 • Friends
This hike was a perfect combination of challenge and pleasure. It had fantastic views and the top of the mountain was stunning. Andre was nice and very helpful throughout the entire hike. He pointed out vegetation and hints on how to maneuver the difficult climbing portions. I would highly recommend them.

This hike was a lot more challenging than I expected. Much of it was hiking up (and scooting back down on) rocks. I was nervous, but Natasha, the guide, was very helpful with giving me hints on how to climb up and down. She was very patient with me. I am glad I did the hike.

Wonderful experience from start to finish!
My boyfriend and I completed this tour in April and it was a hugely rewarding experience. Our friendly guide Natasha collected us from our hotel at the specified time and brought us to the park to begin our hike. She explained lots along the way and has extensive knowledge of the local flora and fauna. She also answered any of the questions we had. Natasha paced our hike exceptionally well and stopped every so often for a break/picture stop. She highlighted some areas of difficulty and suggested ways to manoeuvre around them. When we reached the peak, we had some time to ourselves for picture taking. We then started our descent and returned to our hotel in good time. An overall rewarding and thrilling experience and we would highly recommend Natasha as a guide. Exceptional tour!

Guides went above and beyond to create a personal and fun adventure for us
Aug 2018 • Couples
Look Around Tours went to great lengths to accommodate us and maximize our short time in Sesimbra. They pulled out all the stops to make a last minute tour happen for us on the shortest of notice (same day!). Natasha and Andre answered all of our questions via phone and email about the tours they had suggested based on our interests and available time. Their website is easy to use and does a great job illustrating what to expect (Includes English Version). Andre is a wealth of knowledge providing a real local perspective that made for an authentic experience that was tailored to our interests and not a scripted tour. You can tell he is passionate about sharing the region with you. On the hike he did a fantastic job of balancing the abilities of our group and helping people step outside their comfort zone. He is focused on your experience and recognized when someone was too far out of their element. When one member of our team did not summit the last part of the hike Andre made sure it was still a positive experience. Once again went above and beyond to create a great adventure! This hike has quite a bit of elevation gain and alternates frequently between shade from the trees to exposed areas of direct sun. We were there in the dry season so there was little to no wildlife to see. Bring water and light weight long sleeves (for the branches). The last bit gets quite steep and involves a bit of scrambling with hands and feet. The view from the top is worth the hike with some terrific panoramic views of the surrounding coastlines. Overall I would consider this well worth the price especially given the small size of our group and the above and beyond service. Natasha and Andre facilitated a great, local, personalized adventure. I look forward to contacting them again the next time I am in that corner of the world!

With clients like you and your girlfriend, the work becomeseasier and interesting. if you decide to visit again the region of 3 castles, contact us, because you have met all the necessary conditions to do our mountain trails of high difficulty degree.

Incredible hiking tour
If you are looking for an unforgettable experience then look no further than Look around tours. With Andre you just don't get a simple hiking tour but a real adventure revealing the heart of the Arrabida region. Andre was not only knowledgeable about the local vegetation, knowing the area like the back of his hand, but was also sensitive to the physical capabilities and emotional needs of our group. It was clear he really loved and was passionate about sharing about his region. This tour is not for the faint hearted but once you have done it you will never regret it. The sights are beautiful. Physically challenging but with the wonderful peace of the sumit taking the hectic out of everything, we felt like we were on top of world..quite literally.

Was a pleasure to got people to "surmount" themselves, either physically or emotionally. It was a magnificent day with a fighter group, sharing all my knowledge for you, my clients and Mother Nature, who welcomed us in one of the most beautiful places in Mediterranean Europe. Thanks for your coment Grace!
