Great tour! The guide - Miguel was outstanding. Cool Tour LX does hotel pick ups and they arrived just when scheduled. Miguel is very knowledgeable about Portugal and the Knights Templar. He gave us lots of information, but made it interesting. Portugal is beautiful and the route of this tour includes some great scenery. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour, our guide Miguel was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Portugal.
Better than expected! Educational, beautiful, historical trip. Our guide was extremely knowledgable, super friendly and very attentive to our small group. She also took us to a newly opened Templar restaurant in Tomar. It was another (of several) highlights! Within our group, there were two children who loved the entire day/adventure as well. If you travel to Lisbon, please don't miss-out.
This tour is absolutely amazing and my husband and I are so glad we did it. Anyone with any interest at all in the Knights Templar need to do this tour. Our guide from 'Cooltours' in Lisbon was fantastic as well. The 'Convent of Christ' in Tomar is spectacular - any pictures you see on the internet, do not do it justice - one must see it in person, and you will be extremely glad you did.
The Knights Templar Tour was an excellent experience. Our tour guide, Madelana, was friendly, informative, helpful, and very, very kind. My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much. Would highly recommend it to everyone who visits Portugal.
Our tour guide was exceptional. Her enthusiasm and depth of knowledge made for a rich and engaging experience. Wish all our tours were this enlightening.
Loved this tour!!! You;ll start off the day by visiting a magical, medieval castle perches on a small island in the river. You don't actually go inside the castle, but you take a small bout ride all around it. Then, you're off to Constancia. This is actually a very small stop. Not much to do there. Then, Tomar to visit the Templar castle and monastery. Hige complex. Get ready to walk. It's very worth the trip!
This was a great tour overall. Our guides Edgar and Yoki were absolutely wonderful--both very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We would have requested all of our tours with them if we had been able to!
We had a small group of just 3, so it was more of private tour. Our guide, Mihaela, of Cool Tour, was very informative and knowledgable. Being a small tour we were able to get to know her as well as the others in the tour. The castles are a must see if interested in the Knights Templar.
Sorry, if this review came about late. First off, this is the most fantastic tour we have had for a family of 6 which includes a small child. It was a very amazing tour conducted by two wonderful ladies who showed us not only the best of Portugal but also the best of Portugese friendliness. She (tour guide) brought us to the most fantastic restaurant for our lunch and also brought us for a tram ride round the city of Tomar right up to the Convent. (I am positive that she paid these out of her own expense which is not part of the tour package). Believe it or not, we were the only six passengers plus of course our two guides on board the tram. This is truly the most personlised private tour we have ever had. Besides, she had assisted to help our hyper active son (7yo) by giving a very interesting explaination of the Convent with its breath taking artwork that will truly grasped the mind of any child. I truly recommend families with children for this tour. And for those elderly folks, please don't worry about having difficulties getting out from the minivan as there is a small stool too. We even had a boat ride round the Templars castle. Please asked for Cooltour ,Nicula Mihaela. Very nice lady who goes out of the way to handle even the most difficult situation and an accomodating one. A very knowledgable , approved guide.
Great Tour, this is the one must do tour if you are going to Portugal. Great guide who was very knowledgeable about templer history and the sites we visited.
We took this tour with Madalena and she was very good. We enjoyed our day with her very much!
This was a wonderful tour lead by Miguel who was a great guide and very informative. Although we had some heavy rain during part of the tour, it didn't dampen our spirits or our learning about the Knights Templar in Portugal. The tour included a short boat ride to view an ancient castle (although the castle was closed due to renovations), lunch at a local restaurant in Tomar and a "train" ride around Tomar after lunch. I would recommend this tour for the history buff as well as individuals wanting to learn more about Portugal and its past historical importance.
We thoroughly enjoyed this all-day excursion from Lisbon. Madelana was a terrific guide on this intimate group experience.
