My fiancée and I very much enjoyed this trip as we were not only able to visit Evora and a fabulous vineyard, but also learned so much about the country of Portugal and its history on our ride up with Carlos! The tour started from the moment we stepped in the vehicle as we learned about all of the sights along the way. He was so informative and very charismatic. His passion for this country is so beautiful and I was moved to tears by his explanations standing in the cathedral. It was so humbling to me. We left in the morning as strangers for a city that I knew so little about, and returned to our hotel feeling like family in a country we have grown to love so quickly. We highly recommend Carlos from Celina Tours! And we will be back for sure!
Evora is a difficult place to get to by public transport from Lisbon so this tour was a great way to it. Evora is a small town with lots to see. I didn't go on the lunch and was glad because I got to spend the time exploring the town centre. The wine tasting was very rushed and it was in a local shop, not very atmospheric. Overall, it felt a bit rushed in the monuments but was a great way to experience more of Portugal.
We walked through the cork forest with Andrew, who was very informative about all things to do with cork, as well as his family's history. We then had a fabulous wine tasting and finished off the experience with an amazing 3 course lunch at a local restaurant (the chef was so nice and the food absolutely delicious).
Our guide was Orlando e he was very gentle and had a very good knowledge about local history and many details in each part of the tour. The tour was an incredible surprise for us, and we really enjoyed!! Amazing places!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Evora with Carlos. He was able to give us lots of really interesting background information on the places that we visited, and made the day good fun too!
