Anna was great. She gave us so much information on the sites. Her English was perfect. I was traveling with my 19 year old son and he loved it. She was very accommodating and concerned about what we needed. Lunch was amazing - an outdoor patio that was covered and heated for January. We had Iberian pork which was delicious. The Chapel of Bones was something we had not seen before. We saw the Roman ruins and walked around Evora. The Stone Circles of Cromlech, the burial spot and the single stone were magical. Overall great tour and well done.

Our guide was spectacular. The sites we saw were interesting and personalized. Raquel allowed time for exploration and was knowledgeable about all aspects. I found each item quite fascinating and there was such diversity!

Our guide Filipe picked us up at our hotel right on time and we headed to Evora. Along the way he provided us with information about the town and what we would see there, as well as Portuguese history. We saw cork plantations and he explained the process of stripping the bark--fascinating. In the old, old, old town of Evora, we toured the Chapel of Bones, the Roman ruins, and other sites, and had lunch in the town plaza. After another short drive out into the countryside, we came to the Almendres Cromlech, a prehistoric circle of menhirs. It was absolutely amazing to see it there, just on the hill of cork oak trees, imagining the people who had constructed it thousands of years ago. Filipe then took us to see a smaller area of Roman ruins nearby that had been discovered on a private farm--amazing. We had this tour on our second day in Lisbon, and it gave us an experience and understanding of Portugal that we never could have had if we had stayed only in the city. Very highly recommended, especially if you can get Filipe as your guide!
