Owner description: We have a passion for megaliths. And sharing this passion is our mission.Present day Evora is in the center of an ancestral landscape that has a significance for all Humanity. Here you can find the remains of some of the oldest monuments of mankind in Western Europe.The early farmers and shepherds that created them, some 7500 years ago, didn't just create beautiful and impressive monuments - they have envisioned an entirely new way of relating with their world and have set the foundations for our current way of life.The megaliths, embodying the new ideology of this period in it's fullest - the domestication and transformation of the natural environment - remain today as distant messages, hidden in the fullness of time.Join one of our tours and discover more about your own history.

“Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I was told that the guide would be a young archaeologist. And thank God for that. Mario was definitely not an old man on a walking stick trying to tell you about something from perhaps his era. But despite his age, Mario was able to give a lot of insight into the sites. So it was a brilliant and enjoyable tour.

“You have to go here if you are in Evora”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

I had no idea this place existed until the Evora tourist office told us about it. I have seen Stonehenge and Carnac, but is place is so impressive because you can approach the stones and because it is is such a desolate place. It is just a short drive from Evora (a beautiful city in itself) and well wroth the visit.

“Ebora Megalithica Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Having a great guide to show you the sites and tell the the story behind the rocks made for a wonderful day out. Mario clearly knows his stuff! Book this tour as soon as you know your dates as we got the last 2 seats in his van.

“What we hoped it would be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Mario and his girlfriend were warm and charming in addition to speaking excellent English and being knowledgeable about the megaliths. We recommend the tour wholeheartedly. Also, visit Mario's restaurant! Excellent small plates and sangria. Ask him about it.

“Best. Tour. Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Absolutely the highlight of our trip. We were expecting our tour guide, Mario Carvalho, to be an old pipe-smoking shuffling stuffy academic. Whoa, was I wrong. Academic and enthusiastic with a vast knowledge base, yes, that is Mario. But (I emailed his picture to my daughter) a former skate boarding hottie. We could not have asked for a more knowledgeable, professional and enthusiastic guide. The megalthics are amazing but I am so glad we did not visit them on our own as they deserve interpretation from an archeologist such as Mario.
