    What to Expect
    Follow the trail of the Knights Templar during your private, full-day tour. Meet your guide at your hotel in Lisbon at around 9am. Head north to visit the biggest tourist caves in Portugal. Your guide will provide stories about the local history throughout the day.

    Next, discover Tomar, a 12th Templar town featuring a castle and the Convent of Christ, an UNESCO World Heritage Site (own expense). Visit the historic center of Tomar, including the  Church of Santa Maria do Olival and the 16th-century Church of São João Baptista.

    Enjoy lunch at a Medieval tavern (own expense). After lunch, stop at the Castle of Almourol, situated in the middle of the Tagus River. The best way to reach the castle is by boat. You will have free time at each stop during the day to explore.

    Finally, take in the relaxing landscape on your drive back to Lisbon. You will return at about 6pm.
