Surrounded by a mysterious and romantic atmosphere, the Almourol Castle is one of the most representative examples of the military architecture of that time, evoking at the same time the origins of the Kingdom of Portugal and the Order of the Knight Templars.

Come aboard a small cruise along the river and let yourself be amazed by the beauty of the historical architecture and the surrounding landscape.

We will continue the tour up the margins of Zêzere River to the Dam of Castelo do Bode, where you can admire one of the biggest dams in Portugal.

Once we have arrived in Tomar, let yourself be transported to another Era and, if you wish, enjoy an enigmatic sixteenth-century lunch.

After lunch we will continue with a guided visit to the Tomar Castle and Convent of Christ where you can look at the famous Window of the Chapter, masterpiece of Manueline Art, full of references to the discoveries and the history of Portugal.

Rated 5 out of 5

My husband and I had scheduled the Tomar tour for the day. Susana picked us up at our apartment and we were off. Susana was lovely – so informative and nice. Best part was that she really customized the tour to what we wanted to do. I mentioned that I had heard there were caves up by Tomar and she arranged to take us on a tour which my husband LOVED. I also mentioned that we had wanted to visit Fatima so she worked that in too! We enjoyed the tour (and Susana) so much that my husband booked her again for the following week to take he and a friend to Porto. 100% recommend – and ask for Susana if you can – she even sent me pictures of both trips which was very appreciated!!!

Special tour guide and wonderful family experience

This tour was a highlight of our trip to Lisbon. While the historic sites were incredible, our guide Susana was what made it special. She was very knowledgeable, gracious, quick to answer questions and accommodating of the needs of a diverse group (adults, teenagers and elderly parents with mobility challenges). She made sure that everyone in the group had a good time and got the most out of the experience. She offered ideas about places to explore in Lisbon and wonderful suggestions for restaurants. We had such a good time, we immediately booked a second tour with her. We are definitely going back and hope to book another tour with Susana.

Fantastic guide and experience

Susana was an exceptional guide. Her love of and knowledge of the region was wonderful. We
experienced an entire day of information, laughter and local culture. At the end of the day it felt like we
were leaving a new friend. We highly recommend the tour and Susana.
