If you're the nerdy type or just simply enjoy learning about history in detail, then this is the best tour for you. But if you're into sight-seeing, this may not be ideal. We love our guide, Nonon (if I remember his name correctly), is very knowledgeable and gives the history in detail. He is simply amazing! We love his humor too!
Very interresting and informative afternoon! The monastry is a pure work of art! You'll be glad you went inside! And yes, the introduction is long, but you also need the information to understand the period, the people whose monuments, tombs and statues you're going to see.
our guide went out of his way to make sure we could see as much as possible before we had to leave for our flight. he was entertaining and gave us a real local perspective on Lisbon!
Our guide Andeiy was a wealth of knowledge. We hardly felt the three hours go by. We had an excellent tour of all the important sites of Belém.
The monastery is very impressive. Very informative and nice guided tour of Belem.
