Our tour guide was Pedro, he was not only knowledgeable but made you feel like you were family he was showing around. In all the years we have been travelling he was the best. If you are in Lisbon and looking for this tour, I would highly recommend him. could go on but simply put: outstanding.

If you have a good tour guide these places are full of history and cobblestone streets, fortresses and nooks and crannies. This was a great way to visit these charming towns. Although it was raining when we visited Obidos, it was a beautiful village!

All-round a good day. Our guide answered all my questions and was really friendly. There was a lot packed into one day but it didn't feel rushed at any stage. Nazare was a great place to visit. Good day

The world heritage monasteries of Alcobaca and Batalha are simply not to be missed. These are awe-inspiring structures and we thoroughly enjoyed learning about their fascinating histories. The tour also provided brief stops at Nazare Village with a view of the wild coastline and Obidos, with its medieval castle. We benefitted greatly from a private tour with a guide all to ourselves.

We were picked up from our hotel as arranged and they were ready and waiting for us when we exited the hotel. Everywhere our guide took us the tour guide thoroughly explained the places, sites, and all the history. They gave us refreshments and the water was always cold. We enjoyed our day so much. We were also brought back to our hotel at the organised time. Nice tour

A fantastic cultural day. The Gothic architecture was incredible to see. You should learn the story of Pedro I and Ines of Castile - star-crossed lovers who hope to meet again in the afterlife. Obidos is a quaint little village with an old fort. There is a beautiful walking street with shops on both sides. The whole day was brilliant. If you are in this area this tour is an absolute must!

This tour is NOT to be missed! The Batalha Monastery, in particular, is phenomenal. The Gothic architecture of this monastery is a fantastic representation of that era, everywhere you look you see this style in all its glory. Do not miss out on such a brilliant tour - everything was perfect!
