Outstanding tour with an outstanding guide. Ricardo was very knowledgeable and courteous. He gave us good insights and enough time to absorb the surroundings. The small group tour has many advantages over the big bus and I will always recommend them, especially with an excellent guide like Ricardo.

Great tour if you are into the Knights Templar. Our tour guide Carlos was extremely knowledgeable and very help full. Sound while driving was a little hard to hear but when we asked for clarification Carlos always answered our questions.

We had a small group tour 8 people in medium-sized van today with Carlos, and it was very enjoyable...

We had debated on saving money by going to Tomar on our own to see the Convent of Christ -- a MUST-SEE in Portugal, one of the best sites we visited in our 5-week stay here! -- but we opted for this tour because we wanted to see more than just that, plus have the convenience and knowledge of a guide.

Carlos did not disappoint... he told the stories of the Knights Templar and their follow-up Order of Christ very well, summarizing it into a perfect condensed version while on our way to the sites to see.

The sites we visited were perfect, and all in all it was a great day. I chose this tour for the extra sites, the convenience over trying to do it ourselves via train to Tomar from Lisbon, and the extra guidance such as spoken information... and this was, perhaps, the most informative tour of the 3 or 4 we have taken in Portugal.

If you want to save a few bucks and only see the Convent, you can take the train. But if you want to save time and stress, learn some history, and see more sites including a short but beautiful boat ride in the rider to the wonderful castle at Almourol, take this tour.

My husband and I booked this day tour via Viator to Tomar and the Almoural Castle on June 21, 2018, near the end of our Portugal stay in Lisbon. We were at first apprehensive, as a previous day-tour similarly booked through Viator was quite a negative experience for us.
What a difference this Cool Tour was, led by our top-notch Ricardo as guide. He organized the tour so well that it was simply a bliss by following him to a most wonderful experience of a must-do destination, particularly if you are a history buff interested in the medieval history of the Templar Knights in Portugal.
The weather and the conditions were cooperating, so we were able to take the boat ride to the Almoural Castle. The history details Ricardo provided us with made the climb to the top of this magnificent castle and its surrounding all the more impressive. Next Ricardo brought us to the Convent of Christ (Convento de Cristo/Mosteiro de Cristo) - and led us through all its magnificent rooms, hallways and the cloisters. The Interior of its Round church, decorated with late Gothic painting and sculpture are all exquisite and stunning, everything well worth its fame as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Ricardo then took us to a gourmet restaurant, and our group of 8 people (mostly couples) could freely order our own dish and enjoy each other’s company over lunch.
Our trip ended with the visit to a hidden gem, the Igreja de Santa Maria dos Olivais in the centre of the old medieval town, which is the final resting place of Gualdim Pais, founder of Tomar, along with the tombs of other Templar Knights. Ricardo detailedly pointed out to us the many hidden symbols of the Order in the church, giving us a history background that we would not soon forget.
The tour director you are with definitely makes all the difference to the outcome of your trip. Ricardo is not only knowledgeable and proud of his heritage, he is also most considerate and paid great attention to details to care for his clients and make them comfortable. A case in point: he would always go the extra distance of getting his car first, started it up so it is nice and cool, before coming round to pick us up again.
This is totally unlike the other tour led not by a professional guide but just a driver - He would drop you off anywhere at his own convenience. And then if you exited an attraction and lost your bearing, he would not even be there to find you!
After all, it is not a matter with the money you pay, but whether you feel you are being treated fairly as a deserving client. Ricardo of Cool Tours has given us one of the best tours that we have so far experienced. My husband and I would have no hesitation in joining other tours led by him.

What a great tour !!! Carlos, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and keep the conversation moving. Which was saying something since there were only 4 people on the tour. I really enjoyed each of the places we went and loved hearing the history behind each place. We were all able to take our time and see what we wanted with out feeling rushed. The place chosen for lunch was very good and certainly were the cost. If you are not sure, take the tour !!

Très intéressant. Le château est petit mais magnifique. Le couvent du Christ à Tomar a été une très belle découverte. Une autre activité en après-midi aurait pu être rajoutée, l'église de santa maria en vaut plus ou moins la peine et le visite est très rapide.

Tour guide was great, but Convent of Christ visit was very rushed and disappointing. Not sure this one is worth the price.
