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.
Our tour guide Michaela was amazing. She provided just enough information. Her enthusiasm was contagious.
Very interesting tour with a fantastic guide; I can highly recommend these "small group tours": much more value for your money than the organised tours with larger groups.
We had a wonderful tour guide Madeleina, she was incredibly passionate and knowledgable about her history. No problems with pickups from our hotel.
Excellent small group tour highlighting the history and castles and monasteries of the Knights Templar who became the Knights of Christ.
Tour Guide was outstanding.
This was a small, private tour of castles in the surrounding areas outside of the city of Lisbon. It was a pleasant experience to see the suburbs and see something different. I enjoyed interacting with the local tour guide, and I would highly recommend this day trip!
Mikaela is a wonderful guide. She made the tour lively and interesting, even though she had to do it in two languages. She even went out of her way to pass through Fatima Sanctuary for a few minutes upon the request of a couple of passengers. Overall, a full day tour well spent!
Miguel was an awesome tour guide! Seeing the order if Christ's castle was really interesting!
