A Recent Review of this tour

Augusto was an enthusiastic energetic guide. He has a wonderful knowledge of the area and enjoyed showing and explaining Evora. We had lunch at a typical Portuguese restaurant and ate some delicious food we never would have ordered such as Dogfish soup. We also went to the prehistoric monoliths and a short visit to do a little wine tasting. The day went very quickly and all 6 of us had a great time. We have had many private guides and Augusto ranks up there with the best.
