We absolutely loved this city! Can't wait to be back for round two. The guides were amazing too, really good value. Would recommend to anyone that is interested in a more personal approach to exploring the city.

I first visited this site ten years ago, and on this trip I visited it twice. With each visit I get to experience new insights and explore more history, architecture and religion. I am sure another visit would not be disappointing. I also recommend that if you want a more interesting walk, do so through the park and enter via the gardens and battlements. This walk is not recommended for children (buggies) or people with mobility issues.

David took his time in explaining the history of the town and the convent, he was very knowledgable and passionate about it. We were glad to book this tour and not embarked alone, as the convent is rich in history that is as beautiful, if not more, than the magnificent structure itself. The place is massive and it would be best to have a guide to walk you through it.

We rented a car to drive to this place because it's over a hundred kilometers away from Lisbon. The trip was well worth it.

It's a huge complex built as a stronghold by the Knight Templar. Both the exterior and interior are very impressive. These guys were richer than a country.

Picture is worth a thousand words. I will let the pictures do the talking.

I loved this tour company. Our guide was David. He was extremely knowledgeable of the location. He is from the area and has been to the site many times over the years. He is a very experienced tour guide. He answered all our questions and we learned more about the Templar Knights than we had ever known before. Our hotel was very close, so he came to our hotel to greet us and start the tour. He gave us a quick overview of the town square before hiking up the hill to the convent. This site is a true treasure not to be missed. David hit all the little details you might not get on a big tour. I highly recommend hiring this company for a tour. You will not be disappointed in the extreme love of history they have for this incredible history filled location.

It was an incredible experience to get to know the city of Tomar guided by these 2 young men, David and João. The amazing quality of this guided tour stems from the deep historical knowledge and love that these local guides have for their home town. It was a pleasure and i'll be sure to come back for the other tours and experiences that Open Roads Portugal has to offer.

We enjoyed our guide so much that we came back with family. David is so knowledgeable that we learned a great deal about the convent and Templars. Even though he must do this tour often, he always seems as though he enjoys his job. We highly recommend.

Our visit was guided by David and we had a wonderful tour. David's knowledge and passion for the convent and Tomar shone through. He really brought the place and history to life. Excellent English and communication skills, the whole tour was well paced, fascinating and interactive. I cannot recommend this tour enough. We were in Tomar for the day and most of the tours online seemed to be from Lisbon, so I'm glad we found David. Looking forward to coming back. Thank you David.

Tomar, a medieval town and once a walled city, is known for the beautiful Convent of Christ, 1164, which sits at the top of a hill overlooking the city.
