It was a great, exciting experience that made a lot of fun! Joana is a energizing, cool and humorous person and exeeded our expectations by far. Doesn’t matter if u like bees or not – its more than worth to join Joana and her bees.

Once in a lifetime experience. The farm was fairly easy to find via Uber. I learned so much about the bees and enjoyed my time very much. Lunch was amazing too!

Joana has such love and passion for what she does, and that is so obvious throughout the entire experience. The excitement and joy that she expresses while showing you the ins and outs of bee keeping made the experience very special. The equipment was all very new, well kept, and comfortable. The homemade lunch was delicious, and the honey tasting for desert was a fantastic way to end the day. Great value for money, and a fantastic (special) way to spend a day out doing something very different. We learnt so much, not only about bees, but all pollinators, and their importance in nature. Please go visit Joana and her bees!

It was very nice experience, if you don’t know anything about the bees that is really good opportunity to learn with the owner. You will discover the bee world. At the same time you will be able to taste different type of honeys, you will be really close to bees you can see royal jam, also besides the bees you can feed the goats and see the agriculture. If you like farm life this experience is just for you!

What a magnificent experience. Joanna’s warmth and passion for the bees radiates throughout. I learnt so much and ended up wanted to know so much more about bees by the end of it. The main house area has a cozy and authentic feeling and lunch was served fresh and made with ingredients form the vegetable garden – could you ask for a more authentic experience. Don’t let the distance from the city centre put you off trying out this wonderful experience. An unforgettable day and unique way to spend some time in Lisbon.
