We had a great time seeing lots of sites. Our driver was Joao, he had lots of good suggestions about places to see and was very nice. He let us wander the castles without rushing us. We were hoping that we'd have an actual tour guide to teach us about the history of the castles and buildings but overall we had a great experience.

Magnífico serviço. Atendimento, pontualidade, condução, esclarecimento, correcção e simpatia, todos irrepreensíveis. Menção muito especial para o condutor, Sr. Manuel Bernardo, que embora não queira considerar-se propriamente “guia”, mostrou e partilhou valiosos conhecimentos históricos e culturais da “rota dos templários” e Ordem de Cristo (Castelo e Convento de Cristo em Tomar e Castelo de Almourol), revelando talento e proficiência na sua actividade profissional dignos do maior apreço e gratidão. Bem-haja!

Joaquin fue un guía excepcional. La excursion por privado merece la pena ya que la fuimos adaptando a los diferentes miembros de la familia. tomar es un sitio para ver sin duda y Joaquin nos conto muchísimas anécdotas e historia del lugar y el castillo de Amurol, a pesar del difícil acceso, fue el colofón del dia.
