Emerson was very nice and he was ready with all the information and our questions. He was very patient and pleasant to be with, this is a whole day tour 😍, evora is really pretty and monsaraz looks exactly like if we were in the medieval time. We had a great time in Portugal. Great tour with lots of history.

The drive was comfortable and the guide was well informed and resourceful. Anything he didn't know he would look up or ask someone for us. His lunch recommendation was fantastic and we had enough time to get in a wine tasting in an Evora shop. If you are in Lisbon for more that 2 days, this is a day trip you shouldn't miss. It is laid back and full of Instagram moments. The sunset view alone was completely worth it!

This was a great tour! We visited and saw so much, but it was also really well thought out. What our group particularly enjoyed was the balance between visiting historic monuments, churches in Evora with the beautiful views and the more leisurely pace of Monsaraz. Of course, visiting sites is only one half of the equation, with the other being the people you are with. Antoine was our tour guide and did an incredible job facilitating our tour. You can tell he is very passionate about history, and he presented all the information to us in a really comprehensible manner. He was a really enthusiastic group leader, and ensured that we were well taken care of. Overall, I have no hesitation in recommending this tour. Our group really enjoyed it!
