    Rita drove us to Evora for wine tour, tour of ruins in the city and tour of cork factory. Rita was a great driver, friendly, knowledgeable and speaks very good English so very easy to converse. We arranged tour with Rita because she did an excellent tour with us a few days earlier.

    Another excellent tour offered by this company, and our driver Goncalo. We drove to Evora, and along the way we stopped at a megalithic site -- older than Stonehenge, and very impressive! Goncalo offered history at the perfect level -- my husband likes to go into more detail, and Goncalo was able to go deeper, and even looked up some information he was unsure of. We also loved seeing the cork trees and nesting storks along the way. Evora was an interesting city, full of history and beauty. Do not miss the Chapel of the Bones -- words do not describe this place! Thanks to Goncalo for a perfect day touring a less 'touristy' city, we enjoyed ourselves immensely!

    My daughter and I booked this tour with Portugal Unknown using Goncalo as our guide for the day. I had contacted them earlier about the possibility of an additional stop and they just didn't see anyway that it could be squeezed in. BUT, as our day concluded, they surprised us by adding the stop we wanted! We had so much fun that we made arrangements to use Portugal Unknown for half-day tours the next 2 days. Our guide the next 2 days was Bruno. Both of our guides grew up in the area and obviously love Sintra and being tour guides. Bruno worked hard to squeeze in full day activities into the half-day time frames we had! One of our days was Jan 1 (New Year's Day) and most everything would be closed. They still managed to give us an incredible time in the Sintra/Lisbon area! The time we had on our own, they had great suggestions as to what we should do to make the best use of our time. They kept us so busy our last day, that they took us straight to the airport when we had to leave. Highly Recommend Portugal Unknown - especially to truly see things beyond the ordinary and to get to experience the culture and people of Portugal.

    Il nostro tour è andato benissimo. La nostra guida, José Márquez ci ha portato ai che posti meritano, ad un ristorante economico con piatti deliziosi, e ad una visita esclusiva ad una fabbrica di sugero. Il tutto con i ritmi giusti, tali da permettere di vivere una bellissima esperienza. Inoltre tra una spiegazione e l'altra abbiamo avuto l'occasione di fare piacevoli conversazioni. Consigliatissimo!
