amazing visit to 3 monasteries

This tour was amazing and a definite highlight of our trip. Our tour guide Sandra was very informative, accomodating and joy to be with. Thank you for such great experience. Highly recommend.
Sandra brought history to life

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day touring the 3 Monasteries with Sandra. We thought it would be a small group tour but since we were the only people that signed up we had a wonderful private tour (it is good to know No Map Tours does not cancel). Sandra is very knowledgeable about the locales and stories of each monastery. Most importantly, she has the rare ability to convey the information in an informal, casual, and sometimes humorous manner so we could absorb the fascinating history and architecture of each site.

It was a lot to grasp in one day (nine hours), But the pace was relaxed and we never felt rushed, although one could take pictures at each place forever. After our visit to the Batalha, we had a nice lunch with a great view of the monastery across the street. Five stars for Sandra and No Map Tours.
Best tour of our trip

Sandra made it a great day from the minute she picked us up. She gave us the history of each of the monasteries in a way that kept us all interested. She helped with all our special request and never made us feel rushed. You will be glad if you use Sandra(No Map Tours).
We enjoyed the trip!

It was very interesting tour and our guide has a lot of knowledge about places we have visited and history. Special thanks for letting us to see aqueduct near Tomar which is not in the schedule but is very close to our way.
Great tour!

Sandra (No Map Tours) was an excellent, knowledgeable guide. Definitely recommend this tour rather than a larger group tour. We did one of those in Porto, and it was a disappointment compared to this tour. Sandra rocked! Learned a lot and had a great time.
