Sandy really loves Évora and shared her love and deep knowledge of the city with us. She pointed out details to us in the art and architecture of the city that I wouldn’t even have noticed if she didn’t take the time to point them out to us and we learned so much about history from her! She also helped us find great places to go after the tour to eat and have drinks and have ice cream! I wish we had made plans to stay for longer here with all the tips she gave us!

It was a worthwhile visit. Our tour guide is excellent. He explained well about the history of each places. We have enough time to eat, explore n enjoy the wine tasting. Ride is a bit Long to drive back. But the day was smooth. We enjoyed it very much. End up we bought a case of wine from the winery to ship it to home in US. Wine is excellent here n the price is reasonable.

The whole tour was a delight. Our tour guide, Rodrigo, was very informative about the places we visited. I do highly recommend Tugatrip tours, and I will use them again in the future.

Sandra told me so much about her city and I saw a lot of details I would habe definitely missed on my own. Thanks so much :)

I loved the guide!! He was extremely kind and efficient!!! Besides the place is wonderful!
