Escursione a Evora
È stato fantastico. Pedro è stato gentile e istruttivo e ha letto bene il tempo e il nostro gruppo. Mio marito era entusiasta di vedere le rovine romane.

Besuch bei evora und olivenölverkostung
Tolle Tour, sehr zu empfehlen! Wir haben herausgefunden, wie Korken geerntet wurde und wie viel davon verwendet wird. Wir haben auch Olivenbäume gesehen und später Oliven probiert. Alles war wie erwartet und der Führer sehr kompetent.
