Festa Dos Tabuleiros Tours
The incredible Festa Dos Tabuleiros (Feast of the Trays) is a four-yearly event taking place in Tomar in mid-July. The next one is this year and the one after that in 2019. An unforgettable week-long event with the historic centre streets decorated with hundreds of thousands of paper flowers. Centuries old with an amazing parade of 700 local women with huge garlanded head-dresses. We organise tours to coincide with this. But early booking is essential.
Caminho de Santiago Tours
The Portuguese ‘Caminho de Santiago’ (the long distance pilgrim trail) to Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain runs through the heart of the Knights Templar Region. We organise tours for walkers on the trail. We pick up in Lisbon and tour the Knights Templar sites along the trail dropping the walkers off in Tomar.
If you are visiting the Tomar region and don’t have a lot of time. We can give you a guided tour of the Knights Templar Castle and Convent of Christ. Or you can opt for a short guided tour of Historic Tomar Centre. Or you can go on both tours. Each tour takes around 2 hours. The cost of each short tour is €15.00 Euro per person ($16.50 USD). For larger groups we can negotiate a separate, cheaper, price. The entrance fee to the Castle and Convent is not included. It ranges between €1.50 Euro ($1.70 USD) and €6.00 Euro ($6.50 USD) depending on age, with concessions for seniors and children.
