      Aline R [May 2016]

We went to Lisbon in May of this year. We hired Around Lisbon to take us on a Templar tour. Our guide, Rui, was on time, knowldedgeable, and eager to share Lisbon and her history with us. We were on a cruise so our time was limited.
On our tour we saw Christ Convent which I think is a hidden treasure. The place was so large you could spend a few days there. Rui was able to take us around, explain the history and facts, show us a few other Templar sites and get us back to our ship in time for sailing.
My only regret is that we did not have a week with Rui. Thank you Rui and Around Lisbon. I highly recommend going with Rui and Around Lisbon when you are there.
