Great trip. Gustavo the guide was very good . He knows a lot. He is nice ,very friendly. Amazing day trip
This was a magical trip, from start to finish. Helpful pickup near our apartment. Lovely drive with thoughtful and educated guide. Great city. Excellent advice about lunch. Beautiful forest and standing stones. Could not have been better.
Really great tour! Evora and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. And our guide, Isabel and guide-in-training, Francisco, who also contributed to the day were outstanding! One of the highlights of our stay in Lisbon. Highly recommended!
This was a well done and terrific day tour. Gustav, the tour guide, was truly an historian who brought to life all of the sights through story telling. The travel, tours of the sites, the walks, the food, ....all added up to a terrific adventure and time well spent. Thank you Gustav.
Our small group tour to Evora was amazing we had so many great opportunities to ask questions of Cecilia and she was an amazing hub of information. Thank you Cecilia for making our day really special! I highly recommend taking this day trip and learning more about Portugal and it's amazing history!
Our guide, Gustafo, was excellent. Besides being amusing and funny, he was also well informed. He shared a lot of history and cultural information as we traveled on to Evora. The stones at Cromlech were fascinating to experience and walk around, and the information on the cork tree harvesting was enlightening. We had a chance to be interactive as a small group which also was great. The walking tour of Evora was fantastic, as we saw and heard a lot and had some independent time for lunch. The entire town is very worthwhile experiencing. The wine tasting and olive oil tasting were also great. Definitely one of my favorite tours of our entire trip.
What a trip--Evora and the megaliths outside of Guadalupe. Without our guide, Michela, we would have never learned about so many things megaliths, olive trees, olive oil, cork and all the things made from cork, acorn beer, traveling in Portugal in just one day! Our group was small, but that made it quite easy to navigate through places and to take our time when needed. When we return to Lisbon, we will ask for Michela again!
Great tour. I took it on Sep. 2. Our guide was very informative. While visiting the cathedral in Evora, go up the tower. It's not a very long climb, and the views of the town are spectacular. In addition to the Roman temple and the cathedral, Evora still has a large section of its medieval wall.

This tour was the highlight of our week in Lisbon. I cannot stress enough how important it is to get our of Lisbon and visit the surrounding areas. We had an incredible guide in our small group of four people. He went out of his way to make my 11-year old daughter feel comfortable and be a part of the tour. His knowledge of the history of the local area painted a story that explained the purpose behind everything we were looking at. The highlight of the tour was the Chapel of the Bones. Do not miss this!!! 5000 human bones decorating the walls of a small chapel within the bowels of a much more ornate church. Sounds creepy but there was a fascinating reason behind it. Loved it.
Our guide was great! She had to speak Brazilian Portuguese not the same as Portuguese, Spanish and English. She provided each language group with all the information we needed to enjoy a wonderful day! She even found time for a wine tasting!
Great tour! Evora is a beautiful little town and the tour guides did a great job hitting all the good spots and sharing great information. Bruno and Isabella were wonderful and quickly made me feel welcome. They were very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this tour. The Chapel of Bones is particularly interesting.
Yoki was a great guide. Full of information and little asides. She knew just when the best photo opportunity was for the storks. She recommended a nice little restaurant in Evora. Loved Evora! The intertwining of the old and new. Our free time was just enough and not too much. Cork trees, who knew how fascinating they were. The ancient stone formations were a perfect end to our day. And Yoki is a great, safe driver!
We had a very enjoyable trip. Evora is an inviting place. The location and attractions were interesting. The guide Gustavo was enjoyable and informative.
Great trip with excellent tour guide from Cool Trips. Highly recommend.

I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Andrea was awesome. Very pleasant and eager to answer questions. Our group only consisted of 4 people, down from the usual 8 that would normally go, so the van was even extra roomy and comfortable. Evora is a must see just for the Chapel Of Bones. They were renovating it at the time of our visit so it took away a little of the "Awe" as workers worked along the inside walls but still was very enjoyable. The town is charming with nice restaraunts and shops. You have some free time to walk around, have lunch ,or shop. Andrea gave us the choice of doing lunch alone or going with her which i thought was a nice gesture. We went on our own but in hindsight i wish we had gone with her. Great tour and Great tour guide.
we had a lovely time in Evora, the guide very frienly and polite.
We had a great day on this tour. the mini bus air cond. was very hot though. we didn't get to do the olive oil tasting said we didn't have time. the winery was a store front in the town . good wine!!!
We thoroughly enjoy the day. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Great tour! A very intelligent solution for seeing the most important nearby sites in 1 day as well as customized for a small group of people (7-8) in a mini-van. No stress, no rush, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The guide, Patrick, was very good: very professional, friendly, multi-lingual (he led the tour in 2 languages: English and French, driving the van at the same time and guiding us through the sites, which is not easy). We visited also a very impressive old stone-edge-site built about 6-7 thousands years ago on our way to Evora. Evora is nice with the remains of the Roman Temple and beautiful city centre. the local cuisine is very delicious. Will definitely recommend the tour and the company to friends.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Evora day trip even though the weather wasn't the best. Our guide, Madalena, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable- so much so, that I gave her my TripAdvisor Excellence pin. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel (the other tour with another Lisbon company required that we meet in a central location). The van was comfortable, and we were very happy with only a few extra people, whom we enjoyed talking to, as opposed to a huge busload of strangers. I was happy that this day trip took us to another part of Portugal that we would not have seen on our own and Madalena told us more about the sights - the cork trees, Lusitano horses, vineyards etc. The menhirs and chapel of the bones were very interesting. There was a "medieval" fair set up and we chose to sample what was sold there (delicious bread baked right at the fair) and explore Evora some more, instead of going to a restaurant, and that was fine with Madalena. Also enjoyed the wine tasting. And we never felt rushed. I felt that Madalena really focused on our enjoying our trip with her.
I really enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it. It was very informative and fun. Our guild was top notch. She new all about the Lisbon. She was also very knowledgeable about the food and wine. It was very personal and a great experience. I would do this tour again.
