As two Dutch folks with only indoors climbing experience, it was great to go climbing outdoors with Joáo. We went for two days, to two different spots he chose for us. Both were great! We had fun, we learned a lot and would certainly recommend!

We had three days of climbing with Joao so far and he is an incredibly awesome guide. You feel always safe with him and he gets you to do stuff that you never thought you would be able to do all while always sending out this calm, reassuring feeling that you're in the hands of a real pro. The climbing... More

We have learned lead climbing with Joao and he was the perfect guide with wonderful climbs and good explanations. We'll be back for multi-pitching! :-)

My boyfriend and I went on a tour with Joao and had a fantastic time. Joao was a great coach (also for the more fearful among us ;) ) and we were able to learn a lot. The location was beautiful, close to the Capucho Convent in Sintra. Not only did Joao learn us to climb, he also shared his... More

No matter if you want to try climbing for your first time or if you are an experienced climber, Joao & Francisco are the guides to go for. I got so much hooked on for climbing, that I went for single guide climbing days as well as planning my next trip to Portugal just for being able to climb with... More

Joao was such an awesome guide! Having had no prior outdoor bouldering experience, he was really good about teaching me the basics of outdoor climbing like identifying different types of rock, holds, etc. that made my first time bouldering much more enjoyable. He is also very knowledgable about the surrounding area, since he is a local and he actually opened... More

Perfect day and awesome climbing. A very good climbing nearby Lisbon. The atmosphere is really nice. The sight with all those Castels is great. The guide is really good and now really well the area.

Prior to climbing in Sintra my partner and I had never climbed outdoors together and were not sure what to expect from the climbing in Sintra. João not only accommodated our interest in beautiful vistas, but also knew how to set challenges for each of us despite our different levels of climbing experience. This portion of the trip was the... More

This was the first time we have ever climbed and our guide made sure we were safe while having a great time. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Thanks

This should be ranked far higher on the list of activities in Sintra. Joao was a great guide and managed to accommodate both my friend and I despite one of us being a natural climber and the other being scared stiff. He knew the right way to challenge us and show off the beautiful surrounding area. Couldn't recommend highly enough
