Open Roads Portugal is a tourism brand created by 3 locals based in the beautiful city of Tomar, Portugal.
Tomar is a city located in the Ribatejo region in the centre of Portugal, home to the UNESCO Heritage site, Convent of Christ, headquarters of the millennial Templars, of a unique synagogue in the country and of many other century’s old monuments and churches. Encapsolating an unmatching living history which permeates every corner, picturesque streets and an unrivalled natural beauty, Tomar makes one of the favourite spots for the tourists.
ORP has been developing for a year now guided tours throughout the city, having already reached many people on the way with its compelling story-telling. We want to provide tourism which is truthful to reality, showcasing the local side of Tomar in the most genuine and original way we can! Come meet us!
We learned so much about the history of the castle and convent, The Knights Templar, the meaning of the artwork, symbolism, etc. This is a must do—there is so much to see and learn. David was a fountain of info, happy to answer our many questions. He is extremely knowledgeable about Portuguese history and these monuments. We highly recommend this tour and guide!
Tour of the Castelo of the Knights Templar by Guru walk and David Sousa was excellent. Would do again and recommend to others looking for an informative tour of the Castelo.
David was very knowledgeable about the history of Tomar and was very helpful answering our many questions. Definitely recommend taking his tour!
Great tour. Highly recommended.
This was our first tour of this type and I would not hesitate do it again. We paid the guide generously, but felt it was in line with the quality of the tour. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. Thanks David!
