This was the only small group tour that we attended in Lisbon as all of our other tours were very private but it is definitely one i highly recommend. the group was only 8 of us so it was indeed intimate and our guide did a terrific job answering questions, providing the history of our visits to historical sites and even took us to an amazing medieval restaurant. I really can't underscore the hospitality of the professional guides in Portugal and how much they try to accommodate you. I think it will be a long time before i return to northern europe given how impressed i was with this country. Just a great job all around. Portugal is a must see and a place most people outside of europe or brazil know too much about. We recommend highly.
Fabulous with guide and driver Fabio from CoolTours. This small group tour was one of the true highlights of my recent trip to Europe. I took about 15 day excursions and this was among the most memorable. The boat ride and visit to Almourol Castle was a great starter on a spectacular sunny day. It really felt like a true medieval castle and its location on a rock in the river was dramatic. Tomar is not to be missed, and the Convent of Christ is an incredible site. Nice to have the time to explore the town of Tomar and to see the restored synagogue. Avoid the tour with lunch at the medieval restaurant included. You can eat there if you want on your own, but it was more fun to wander the streets of the old town and catch something lighter to eat.
Andreia was a great tour guide and the trip was better than expected. We made several stops and had plenty of time to take in the sights in the Tomar area. Andreia was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We would highly recommend this tour to others visiting Lisbon.
Very good. Isabel was on time and kept her schedule flexible and made the best to answer our questions, she was very knowledgeable . The other participants were very kind and friendly. I strongly recommend it
This tour was amazing. I would highly recommend it. Our guide Mihaela Nicula was very knowledgeable and was overall a great guide!
Our guide was Mihaela who is charming, witty and very knowledgeable about her history. She made the day and I strongly recommend this tour if you are in the area. You will not regret it.

Our Knights Templar Historical Tour was everything that I was hoping for and more. We had the best driver and our guide Favio was fantastic. We would recommend this tour to everyone that has a passion for history and a appreciation for beauty. Thank you Favio for a great tour!
This tour was well worth the time and money expended for it. Our Guide The Adventurer was very well read in the subject matter and was happy to share what she knew. Small group was very nice also.
the tour guide was absolutely amazing, I was in a wonderful group and we took our time I had a chance to see so many things, she was very respectful and polite. I recommend this tour to everyone visiting Portugal.

This was great the guide was really good it was with CoolTour Lisbon, our guide Mihaela Nicula was wonderful. Lots of good information. The place for lunch was delicious. Pick up and Drop off at Hotel was on time. The van was small it was a small group of us - 4 in total. The sites were spectacular to see. Portugal is a beautiful country. I look forward to returning again one day.
We had a great trip. Our tour guides were very knowledgable and helpful. It was certainly value for money. The castles were awesome.
Wonderful tour with exceptional guide. It rained much of the day, but the trip was still fascinating.
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.
An excellent day. Our guide Francisco was knowledgeable, charming -- and had the patience of a saint!

Excellent all around. Guide was highly committed and made all the difference to the tour.
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...
