Outstanding!!!

We had really a private tour as no one else was scheduled -- just the two of us and a driver/guide. Therefore my rating probably doesn't perhaps reflect the normal tour. Our guide/driver was beyond excellent. He knew all the ins and outs so we didn't have to stand in line. He could have guided QE2, he was that excellent. He answered every question we had, knew the back story on every site, was as professional a guide as I have ever had.

Joana was such a nice guide! She walked us through both the history of Évora and the megalithics always smiling and providing us with lots of information. The tour is very nice and relaxing and on our way back we also get to cross the Vasco Da Gama bridge, which was a welcomed bonus. The Bone Chapel is definitely worth the visit.

Interesting walk through the stages of human occupation, through its monuments and other evidence, in the region of Évora, from prehistory to the present day.
