We took the guided tour to the Megalithic Cromlech, Menhir and Dolmen at Almendres. This is a wonderful experience and we would recommend this company as you have a vehicle and guide to yourselves. For a mixed-mobility group like ours this is ideal, as you can go at a pace that suits. Our guide, Martin, was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and very careful to let everyone take their time. He even lent his gloves! The tracks to the sites are pretty bumpy, but some skilled driving got us close to viewing. Some walking required. Fairly accessible even to a 90-year-old using a wheeled walker - apart from the single menhir which is a more narrow and uneven path. The price seems reasonable for this tailored experience - about four hours - being collected, taken to the sites and given an informed introduction and history, then returned to your hotel or a restaurant as you wish. We felt we had a much better understanding of the area and its history, and Martin was a fount of knowledge. Very enjoyable and we would recommend.

We had Martin for a tour of megalithic sites and the historic centre. Great information with plenty of local insight, and recommendations for our next day that were spot on. The walking pace was a bit slow for us and he pulled out leg on one info-byte ( a chandelier support was NOT a medieval gear locker) but certainly brought the sites to life for us.

We had Martin pick us up at the train station and deliver us to our hotel in Evora. We spent from 10 am until 5 pm the next day with him. His English is excellent. He knows the history of the city and the region. We very much enjoyed our day with him. He is a real gentlemen. The next day he picked us up, on time, and delivered us back to the train station. Thanks Martin for making our visit to Evora so worthwhile.

We were picked up at our hotel in a wonderful 1958 Mercedes cabrio, immaculate, red leather interior, by Martin, for a tour of the city of Evora. Martin is a great character, who loves and knowa every corner and stone and story around Evora. My husband and I were more than often open mouth by details Martin gave us about the history of many different places we visited. Evora does deserve its nickname of museum city and do not hesitate: do it with Top Emotion! You will learn much more than any guide book can tell you! In addition, you will visit the city at a pace that you pretty much decide upon. Martin was so nice and patient, sitting with us for a coffee or a drink, giving us tips about the food to try, restaurants, special shops for olive oil or wines or places to go to close to Evora...he is by himself an added little treasury to Evora! Do plurge for a moment of pure pleasure in style! It was worth evry penny! And thank you Miguel for the mails back and forth while organising this surprise for my husband. I would do it again!

We spent 9 hours with Martin today. His fund of knowledge is amazing and he brought the history of Evora and the surrounding area to life. We did a walking tour of Evora in the morning where we visited all of the highlights as well as what remains of the old Jewish quarter. We continued on in the afternoon to the Ducal Palace and some nearby highlights. His company was easy to work with via email. I would definitely recommend them.
