What an amazing day trip to the Alentejo with our tour guide extraordinare Antonio. We were picked up from our hotel in Lisbon by private car and driven to the Alentejo region which included a tour of a cork forest, lunch in an amazing local restaurant (which was booked out for the next 7 days), a tour of an award winning underground winery, a cork transformation factory and then return trip back to Lisbon. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a more personal touch and avoid crowds.

This was one of my most memorable mornings of my life. The SUP stand up padle in Barragem dos Minutos in Alentejo was very easy and fun. The tour of the wine and gin makers destilar was very educational and the owner was amazing, explaining everything in a calm and cool speach that we loved. The wine tasting under the trees was also great and relaxing. Would repeat this tour again this time with more friends and/or family.

What an incredible day! Antonio picked us up promptly on our doorstep at 8:00 A.M. in his large comfortable seven passenger vehicle and we headed from Lisbon to the heart of the Alentejo. Our first stop was to a small olive oil estate where the owner, Joao Rosado showed us his orchard and shared the history and vision for creating his gold-medal organic oil. What made this stop particularly memorable was the time spent sitting down with Joao as he explained and walked us through all the steps a judge uses to rate olive oils. Next we headed to a cork factory where we had the chance to learn about the different grades or cork, how it is processed, and some of its uses. Then to lunch at Gadanha, a very upscale but unpretentious restaurant in the middle of the small town of Estremoz. Its chef has put together a delightful menu with outstanding food and presentation. Afterwards, we headed to Herdade Do Freixo an innovative winery with below ground circular construction blending into the vineyard landscape. Here we sampled a number of their wines accompanied by sausage, cheese, and bread. Our final stop was an informative and at times rollicking tour of a cork oak forest/estate from the back of a 1970s Land Rover. Our guide at the cork forest was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. All in all, our day was a fabulous experience and we highly recommend this company to anyone seeking a similar outing/adventure.

From start to finish, we had a wonderful experience working with Corktour. On Friday, September 6, 2019, my husband and I did the Cork Forest, Factory, Winery Visit, and Lunch tour. I am a busy pediatrician and when I plan a trip, I want everything to be worry free. In all aspects, Corktour exceeeded my expectations. First, when I was looking for a tour with all of these aspects, I stumbled upon their website. Due to being a fairly new company, there were few reviews to boost my confidence in booking with them. However, I found that whenever I emailed them with a question, Maria would promptly answer in good English. All was very well organized. I contacted them the day before our tour to simply confirm we had arrived in Lisbon, and I quickly received a return call from them. The morning of the tour, Antonio was already waiting for us in our hotel lobby before our agreed time, which put me at ease right away. The vehicle was clean and well maintained with water available as needed. Antonio is a very friendly knowledgeable guide who is very easy to talk with and his English is excellent. He drives safely. The cork forest was very interesting and we enjoyed our land rover tour to see the trees and the bark up close. We enjoyed a private multicourse meal paired with excellent wines at a local restaurant. I am not in the habit of taking photos of my food at restaurants but had to in this case, to hopefully make a few of the dishes myself someday. We had a pleasant visit to a winery in Alentejo with our own guide and tasting and delightful wines. We then had an interesting visit to the cork factory. We did some shopping at their gift store. The whole experience was great. This husband and wife company is reliable and attentive and I would encourage you to book this tour or one of their other tours. I do not often take the time to review my travel or dining experiences, but this company is worthy. Enjoy your stay in the very hospitable country of Portugal!
