Rushed, but great to experience more of Portugal.

Evora is a difficult place to get to by public transport from Lisbon so this tour was a great way to it. Evora is a small town with lots to see. I didn't go on the lunch and was glad because I got to spend the time exploring the town centre. The wine tasting was very rushed and it was in a local shop, not very atmospheric. Overall, it felt a bit rushed in the monuments but was a great way to experience more of Portugal.

Beautiful place

Our guide was informative, but was at times a little distracted, but all was generally well. They should actually not have tours on April 25th, because we were not aware that the university was closed for this Bank Holiday, so that was a waste. The church was also closed for construction and again, our group was disappointed. Otherwise, Evora was lovely, the wine tasting very educational.
