Our guide, Miguel Duarte, made the whole visit a perfect experience. He was understanding whene we had to translate to our friends. He was curious about the similarities between our languages.Patience when we asked for some free time for taking photos. He made the visit seem to be a walk through history.

Worth paying to skip the line, even to get in a few min before everyone else in line. Really, the highlight was the tour guide. He offered a lot of interesting information about the castle and the history of Portugal in general, that I otherwise would not have known.
