It is a must see when visiting Portugal, excellent piece of history, Michaela our guide was very informative, it is obvious that she loves Portugal and its history, but she also made it very interesting, highly recommend her.
Mikayla I hope I spelled that right was very knowledgeable about the Knights templar history and the history of area itself. She was very energetic and a great tour guide. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Beautiful area and Tomar was a great city
This was an excellent trip and a very knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend this trip!
Our tour guide Isabelle was knowledgeable, and kept the tour fascinating with extra history on the entire trip.
We loved this tour, one of the best we took! Mikayla was fantastic, very knowledgeable and flexible. It was a small group so every question got answered. Lunch at the medieval restaurant in Tomavar was an unforgettable experience. Highly rated tour.
A highlight of my Portugal trip especially because the guide, Andrea, was so informative. Highly recommended. So much history and mystery. Eat at the medieval restaurant in Tomar.
Wonderful tour with Mikaela and Vanessa! Beautiful sites, great conversation, and very informative. One of the best tours we've ever been on.
The tour was great! We were picked from the hotel by the very friendly Michaela and found out it was just us, a private tour!
Michaela was very interesting and profound. We ended up chatting the entire day about various items, not just the Templers and would probably continue if time hasn't run out.
The castles and the stories were very intriguing and left us with an appetite to learn further.
If I'll arrive to Lisbon again I would definitely book with cooltour again!
NO WORD CAN EXPLAIN THIS TOUR. FANTASTIC, MAGICAL, WONDERFULL IS NOT EVEN THE BEGINING AND ONE WHO LOVE HISTORY MUST DO IT. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.
This was a great tour. I took it on Sep. 1. There were only 2 other people on the tour besides me. Our guide was very informative. The first castle is on a small river island, and we took a small boat to get to it. The second castle is part of a much larger complex. The tour was also a great way to see the countryside north of Lisbon.
This tour was well worth every penny. Andrea, our tour guide through cool tours was truly amazing. We saw 2 great castle areas. We also had lunch at a medieval themed restaurant which added to the experience. It was a long day but quite enjoyable. A definite must!
fab tour guide, learnt so much, a beautiful country, recommend this tour
This trip was terrific! There were only four of us so every question we had was answered and the castles were as awesome as advertised. Our tour guide was very friendly and professional. We would definitely recommend CoolTours to anyone.
Amazing tour. We saw a lot. This was very interesting. We had a great guide. It was very personal. I like the small group feel. Highly recommended.
It was very interesting and enjoyable. Our guides were terrific and would recommend it to others.
Absolutely beautiful day - what made it better was having a lovely tour guide who was very easy to get along with and very knowledgable. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour
This tour through the templar area of central Portugal was undoubtedly interesting, though it attracts less travelers. The guide was very knowledgeable and lively in handling her small group. Perfectly blue sky all along. I would recommend this slightly out-of-the-way tour.
I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Although you have to be fit to managed the 1st stop at Almoural Castle until they put in a decent pathway, you won't miss much if you pass. The rest of the tour is not to be missed. Our Guide was welcoming, friendly and informative. The Covenant of Christ, Tomar a UNESCO world heritage site, is a wonder to behold. We had a themed lunch not included prior to our visit which was an interesting experience and also enjoyable. The Synagogue of Tomar tucked away down a narrow photogenic street is priceless. I can't thank our guide enough for her attention to detail. If you are even remotely interested in the history of Portugal take this tour!
Great and highly interesting tour to a lesser known part of the historical part of Portugal at least for me.
I really enjoyed this tour. I'm a history buff, so this was right up my alley. The Almoural Castle is beautiful and the Convent of Christ and Tomar are exceptional. Really nice day. Celia was the tour guide and she was very good. Bruno and Gui were also there as they are new and were training. Wonderful people all of them. They were so friendly and comfortable to be around.
The historical knowledge displayed by the tour guide ensured an excellent learning experience. The maximum number of participants on tour is 8. This guarantees a personal experience and a thoroughly enjoyable day.
Andrea was awesome! We learned a great amount of Portuguese history and saw some pretty spectacular landscapes!
Totally enjoyed this tour! Loved all the locations we visited. Most of the places were pretty barren of tourists which was great.....lots of space to get beautiful pictures without being photo bombed by someone with a selfie stick. Michaela was an amazing guide who couldn't do enough to make everyone happyincluding helping people up the stairs. She was extremely knowledgeable and always had the answer for our questions. No doubt Michaela was the girl at school who always asked the teacher for more homework :P She was a fun leader for our little troop of misfits and made great tour even better! :
