Isabella was a wonderful guide with historical knowledge about the Templars that spilled over. I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to Tomar.

During our 52 day Spain-Portugal wander, we scheduled 10 full- or half-day tours, rating the Knights Templar tour the best of all. Of course, the sites--Almourol Castle and Tomar--have fascinating histories. We loved the tour because we had a top notch guide--Andrea Alves of Cool Tours Lisbon. We travel to learn, and the multi-lingual Ms. Alves suited us perfectly. Devoted to her subject, with a wealth of readings to draw from, full of wonderful detail, she had a most engaging manner of story-telling. We had a wonderful experience.

This was the highlight of my trip to Portugal with breathtaking castles and a lot of history from our very own knowledgeable tour guide, Mihaela!

First, many thanks to our wonderful tour guide, Mihaela Nicula - she was a walking history book about the Knights Templar. This made it extra special. Started with our tour of Almourol Castle, took a quick local stop for some sweets, then headed to Tomar. Had a candlelit lunch before checking out the town. All the locals loved our guide... she didn't rush us and took time to answer our questions. The Castle of Tomar was a surprise once you got through the gate... wow! Even added a pop-in stop on the way back at another church...

Cool Lisbon is a great company to tour with. It was small tour with 5 of us and Mihaela Nicula was fantastic. She was on time for pick up, took us to a great place for lunch. It was in Tomar at a Medieval restaurant the prices were very reasonable, I had Salmon with vegetables, a large beer and desert for 15.50 Euro. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating to the group. I really enjoyed this tour it was a good mix of different sites at a good pace with wonderful sites to see and learn about.

Celia was a great tour guide - very knowledgeable and fun. We were only 4 people on the tour, so very small and personal. I was blown away by Tomar - the monastery goes on and on and on - really amazingly kept up.

We were very lucky and ended up getting a private tour for the two of us due to the time of season. Our tour guide was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and flexible. We expressed an interest in seeing a church not on the standard tour agenda, and he worked with the volunteer tour guide in the town to have her open it up for us on a day it was closed. I can't thank him enough for making this a really special day! This is a great tour agenda with really interesting stops. Truly was the highlight of our trip! Highly recommend.

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!
