This tour is wonderful. The magnificent Convento de Christo is really something to see. Just imagine if the walls could talk. Loved climbing up the hill and walking around Amoural. Ourem, an ancient site was so peaceful up on the hill looking out at the beautiful scenery.
The comfort of a late model Audi and our knowledgeable guide Daniela made this an enjoyable day. We were able to go at our pace and topped off with a huge traditional Portugese lunch. Each venue was fantastic with very view tourists visiting at the same time. Be aware that you need a reasonable level of fitness to get the best value as much of the walking can be strenuous and hand rails etc not always available.
