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.
Fabulous day trip. Madalena was a wonderful guide. Highly recommend this trip.
We had a wonderful day in Evora. Our tour guide Patrick was very knowledgeable and helpful. We especially enjoyed touring the chapel of bones and the Cromlech.
We had a wonderful time on this tour. Edgar was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone enjoyed themselves, including the children. Evora and the standing stones were worth the trip and the small group format was perfect for us.
My daughter and I really enjoyed this tour. The guide picked us up in our lobby and drove us to our destination, Evora, pointing out various sights on the way. In the town, he showed us buildings and relics whose origins spanned 2000 years. He explained how both ancient and modern events affected what we saw. He introduced us to a small, inexpensive restaurant whose patrons all seemed to be local. The wine and food tasting portion of the activity was delicious and informative.
Very interesting tour. It matched the description. The tour guide was excellent. Highly recommend others to take this tour.
I really enjoyed my visit to Evora. The small group was nice. Madelina (sp?) was very sweet and personable. Evora is beautiful and has very interesting historical sites, from the Chapel of the Bones to the huge Roman temple to the pre-historic "stonehendge" I never would have seen without the tour. I loved wine-tasting and sampling the local cheeses at lunch. Seeing a bit of countryside instead of just cities was refreshing.
