We had really a private tour as no one else was scheduled -- just the two of us and a driver/guide. Therefore my rating probably doesn't perhaps reflect the normal tour. Our guide/driver was beyond excellent. He knew all the ins and outs so we didn't have to stand in line. He could have guided QE2, he was that excellent. He answered every question we had, knew the back story on every site, was as professional a guide as I have ever had.

Joana was such a nice guide! She walked us through both the history of Évora and the megalithics always smiling and providing us with lots of information. The tour is very nice and relaxing and on our way back we also get to cross the Vasco Da Gama bridge, which was a welcomed bonus. The Bone Chapel is definitely worth the visit.

Evora and Cromlech small group tour

I took this tour while visiting Lisbon last week. It was a great day trip. We had perfect weather for the trip and the drive went quite quickly. Our tour guide was just what we needed: accommodating, informative, interesting, punctual and friendly. The places we visited, Cromlech standing stones and Evora, were well-worth leaving Lisbon for the day to see. The other members of my tour were also pleasant and fun to share the trip with. All-in-all, I felt the trip was well worth the cost and would recommend it to other tourists who would like to get out of town and see something more of the Portuguese countryside and history beyond its capital city.
