Set off on your full-day tour from Lisbon and discover one of the most scenic parts of Portugal's countryside. Make your way through Alentejo with its magnificent plains filled with olive trees, vineyards, and cork oaks. Make your first stop at Évora, a Unesco World Heritage site and one of the most beautifully preserved medieval towns. Take a guided tour inside the Roman Temple, one of the best preserved Roman structures on the Iberian Peninsula. Your guide will also show you around the must-see Chapel of Bones. Take time to admire the ornate architecture of the Cathedral of Évora. Your second stop will be the graceful medieval village of Monsaraz, one of the oldest in Portugal and built within the walls of a castle. Taste one of the best wines in Portugal with the views of one of the largest artificial lakes in Europe. At the end of a full day of sightseeing, return to Lisbon.  Treat yourself and your family or friends to a private experience with pickup and drop-off at your accommodation in Lisbon, Cascais, or Ericeira. Alternatively, you can opt for a small-group experience and meet your guide outside one of two central hotels.

What people are saying about Monsaraz

So glad we took this tour to the Alentejo region. Our guide, Marco, was terrific. He was flexible, friendly and informative. He stopped for us first at the "Stonehenge" of the Alentejo, which was most interesting, then we toured Evora with its interesting cathedral. Also had an excellent lunch there. Then on to Monsaraz, which is a beautiful spot high on a hill, all whitewashed buildings, with an amazing 360-degree view. The wine tasting was excellent, and we had time for a little shopping as well. A long but very rewarding day!

Wonderful tour with our guide Rodrigo. Did wine testing at lovely Monsaraz near the Spanish border. Evora was amazing, great food, beautiful churches and Roman temple. Highly recommend

This was a fun trip. A bit of a ride out there but great to get out of lisbon and see the country side.

I loved it! Maria is an excellent tour guide!!! Congratulations!
