Full description
Your private day tour will begin with a pick-up from your Lisbon hotel or cruise port at approximately 08:30. The objective of the day will be to show you the national monuments in Tomar, part of which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As this is a private tour, you will have the freedom to rearrange your tour how you see fit. Below is the standard itinerary:

After the pick-up you will head directly towards Tomar, an approximate 1h15-meter drive. Upon arrival you will visit the castle area which includes the famous convent of Christ where one of the most beautiful works of the Manueline style can be seen. Afterwards, a small stroll in the center of the city where you can taste some of the local sweets and/or lunch after which we will head to the Almourol Castle, a small castle in the middle of an island in the river Tagis, which was also used by the Templar Knights. 

Before heading back to Lisbon you can have some time to visit Constância, a small but beautiful village by the river that was also the refuge of Camões, on of Portugal's most important poets.

Return to the hotel by 17:30. Note that all the itineraries and schedules that are described on this page are the standard ones for this tour.
