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.

It was a well managed tour, short and compact in terms of persons per tour. Our guide, Vasco, conducted the tour very well.. Recommend this tour!!

The tour guide is very nice and knowledgeable about history. We enjoyed the trip very much.

A really great way to see Evora, would recommend this as a day tour

Wonderful tour with a great guide. Highly recommended.
