4 of us toured the Alentejo area of Portugal on Turventur's Castle and Wine tour in April 2016. Great ride, sights, food and people. Not a difficult ride, we were looking for an easier less challenging ride for my cousin as their introduction to cycling holidays. We had amazing food (cheeses and wine plentiful and delicious) and tours daily explaining... More

This terrific tour included the Dolmen of Zambujeiro, Almendres Menhir, and the Almendres Cromlech. Our guide, Joana, or Jo for short, picked us up promptly from our hotel in her jeep (There are some dirt-road stretches to the sights, which are best negotiated in a jeep.) The route was well-organized. Driving through the lovely countryside, Jo pointed out important old... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time. I didn't really know what to expect. I did not research the tour on Tripadvisor or anywhere else. Our hotel recommended it and I'm glad they did. We didn't just see the megalithic site at Cromeleque (where our guide set up a small picnic for us; but we also visited the megalithic... More

We did the "Megalithic tour in evora"; our guide was Luís Carrapatoso, and he was just "perfect". All practical details were perfect, but more that this : he showed real interest in us (family with two teenage-kids 17&19yrs old), and gave us even some good advice for our stay later at the Alentejo SW coast and Algarve. He really knows... More

if you have an extra day to spend in Evora, I suggest you take this tour. First of all, the countryside around Évora is lovely. Our guide Luis gave us a very good understanding of the cork industry, from how the cork tree grows to how the cork is harvested. We saw eucalyptus forests and olive groves. Seeing the megaliths...

We were so glad to have booked the bike and hike to see some of the countryside surrounding beautiful Evora. Luis P. was a friendly and knowledgeable guide who shared the history and culture of the region as we enjoyed the easy hike along the aqueduct that took us through farmland, ancient cork trees and olive groves. He was very... More

We did a half day tour of Evora with Luis who was an engaging and knowlegeable guide. We began with a gorgeous hike along the ancient aqueduct and learned a great deal about the agriculture industry and natural resources of the region. We then biked along the ecotrail into the center of Evora and learned about both the architecture and... More

We went on sea kayak tour just outside of Lisboa. Great way to get out of city and see some incredible terrain from the sea. Guide (Andre)made the trip special because he shared his passion for outdoors and history of area. Great personality. Simple trip but well worth the 72 euro.
