5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2012

Great service! Hotel pick up and drop off. Great narration by guide. Lunch was fantastic with generous servings and ample supplies of local wine. One of our best tour experiences.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

We expected a lot from this tour considering the reputation of Evora, and so were a little bit disappointed by the limited number of interesting sites visited. A good lunch was served in the pleasant garden of a restaurant. We did not really learn much from visiting the wine cellar of a local producer. The tour concluded with a short wine tasting session.

The places and ladscapes were excellent however the woman tour guide was not so appealing.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2008

The trip was quite disorganized at the start. The hotel pickup was prompt and on-time but not at all friendly. It wasn't clear that we were being transported to a central point to meet up with our actual tour. Once we got to the central point, there was confusion and chaos for nearly 20 minutes and 2 bus changes to get everyone settled. The tour itself was quite good and the guide was personable and knowledgeable. The tour included lunch and it was the first time this particular place had been used. There was a wedding that afternoon so we were placed in a hallway near the bathrooms away from the main area although the wedding was not scheduled for a few hours. The food and service were fine and we received complimentary wine, but the atmosphere could have been better. We thoroughly enjoyed Evora and recommend the trip if the logistics can be worked out.

We only had three people on the tour, my husband and I and a nice lady from Brazil, but it went on. I loved our guide.

Day started badly with a mix-up at the transfer point. Enjoyed this trip a lot as it was a small but very diverse group of people and the tour guide couldn't have tried harder to make it work.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2011

The guide was nice but talked way too much and too long on every topic, not breaking up the Portuguese and English segments. The side trip to the Fonseca winery was an added bonus, but we had to wait around for another group to join us and then were rushed out at the end during the tasting/chance to buy wine. Lunch, however, was great!

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2010

Bus trip somewhat disorganized (had to take cab to meeting spot). Tour in 3 languages (had to wait for other 2 to be presented). Guide very knowledgable. Winery was so-so. Lunch at restaurant was excellent wilth great variety. All in all a worthwhile trip.
