This tour is designed for history lovers, showing you the city’s varied collection of historic landmarks. After relaxing on the trip (1 hour 30 minutes) from Lisbon, you reach Évora, a UNESCO World Heritage city. You’ll be transported back to Roman times, the Moorish occupations and all the way through the middle ages, until today’s Portugal.

Roman Temple & Medieval Evora Cathedral

You’ll discover the history of the Roman Temple, often incorrectly referred to as the Temple of Diana. You will also enter the famous Sé Cathedral, the largest medieval cathedral of Portugal. It was built between 1186 and 1204 and was only finished to its final beauty in 1250. Your guide will show you the cloister, basilica and then you will go all the way up to the rooftop to have a fantastic birds-eye-view over the whole city.

Bone Chapel

You will explore the “creepy” Bone Chapel, with its carefully arranged skulls and bones of about 5000 people that cover the walls and columns. It is supposed to make visitors reflect on the inevitable facts of life and death. Make sure you look up at the inscription on the entrance, which reads: “We bones that here are, await for yours.”

Évora old-town

As well as the above sites, you’ll also have the chance to stroll along the city’s main Giraldo Square. Also discovering other historic details of this city and the local way of life. Not to forget, you should try some of the simple local gastronomic specialties if you get hungry. At the end of the tour, you’ll be driven back to Lisbon.

Our guide for the day, Paulo, could not have been more friendly or interesting. He covered all manner of topics, historic and current, and added immensely to our sense of being special guests in his beloved country. We happily encourage others to work with this guide and organization. Ann & Bryan, California USA

Thank you so very much for your review, dear Ann & Bryan. It was a pleasure to organize and make the day with you. I´m glad you enjoyed your Sintra day, and surroundings with Paulo. I hope to have you back in Portugal in the near future. Warmest Regards, and all the best for you both! Joao

4 star review

We had an amazing tour with Maya in Lisbon. She was so pleasant and friendly and brought us to some really interesting places! We especially loved the Jorge castle and stopping for pastel de nata where she made sure we got them fresh from the oven! Maya knows the city well and it felt like we were touring Lisbon with a new friend. The only thing that wasn't perfect was not being informed that Joao was not our guide as we were expecting him. Also the information we received about the meeting point and time was different than we requested but because the email came a day before the tour with instructions we believed it to be correct.

Sintra and Cascais tour with Rodrigo

Rodrigo was substituted for Joao as my guide on the Sintra and Cascais tour. His English communication skills were excellent. We visited the Queluz Palace and his knowledge of the history of the palace really enhanced the visit. We also stopped at Cabo de Roca , did some shopping in Sintra and stopped for lunch in Cascais. Drove along the coast in the seaside town of Estoril on our return to Lisbon. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend Rodrigo’s tour guide services.
