"I was in Lisbon for a week in May so I booked a day trip out of town. I took a private tour with Manuel to Evora and Monsaraz. I really enjoyed Monsaraz, it was remote and so quiet. It is worth a longer visit to enjoy the ambiance and the surrounding scenery. Manuel and I had great conversations on the trip about various topics and I found him to be polite, personable and punctual."
