We are two friends who met each other at the Tomar area. After building a strong friendship and feeling how wonderfull it is to explore Tomar, we realized we had to share this exciting adventure with the whole world. So we've decided to go deeper and learn everything about the city. As we went further, our passion for Tomar became stronger and stronger. So strong that we have to share it with you!

Frederico was very helpful in getting both me and the other party logistically organized even before the tour started! He is extremely knowledgeable and is passionate about the history of the convent and of Portugal. The pace was calm and we had lots of time to ask questions. I found the experience great and can highly recommend Frederico as a guide!
