My mom and I recently did the “Lisbon: Tomar and Almourol Knights Templar Tour” – it was AWESOME! It was a fantastic way to see and experience an area of the country that we might otherwise not have been able to…not only was the design of the tour great but our host, Paola, was fantastic! She has a natural ease interacting with others and is a wealth of knowledge. She helped make the day feel like less of a formal tour and more of an immersive experience. We had a great time!
The trip from Lisbon to Sintra was nice and then to Pena Palace quite beautiful! The Palace tour was lovely and included a bit of a hike to the top, all worth it! Then the drive to the beach was not bad and we had a few hours there to shop and eat. The only thing that was missing was the Wine Tasting, which we were really looking forward to participating in...our voucher noted a wine tasting but one of the other couples voucher did not.
Paula and Anna were excellent companions for our day which turned out to be a personal tour. They made very effort to make the day interesting and comfortable. They spoke English well, listened to our questions, knew their material, were flexible, efficient and provided for all our needs. And they were fun to be with.
Ana was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide and also very personable. For the most part she was clear in her communication but I would encourage her to continue to refine her fluency in English. The day was well organized and transportation was comfortable.
Ana, called “the secret weapon” was absolutely amazing with us, she knows everything and really take care about us. Her English is perfect, she has a lot of advice that you have to follow if you want to enjoy everything. I highly recommend her and this tour.
