About the tour

Today we are travelling to a city that will forever be in my heart, as my grandparents are from nearby and I walked these streets many times when growing up. This charming and small historical town is bathed by the Nabão river, which brings some freshness to this city in its hot summer days. One hundred years after the extinction of the Templar Knights and the creation of the Order of Christ, the governor of the latter develops the city of Tomar: not only he built a palace inside the castle walls, but he encourages the growth of the town through economic activities and urban growth. We will walk through the cobbled stone streets of the town, find the oldest synagogue in Portugal and learn about how it was turned into a museum.

Meet Ines


Born and raised in Lisbon, I have very fond memories of my childhood and adult life here. I became a national licensed guide at the age of 22, after a degree in Tourist Guiding. I have had the chance to meet wonderful people from all over the world, and I was lucky to be able to travel abroad several times. I also worked as a tour manager mostly in Europe, and decided to settle down in my home city in 2017, becoming a full time local guide in Lisbon and surroundings, so I could learn even more about it and share it with you! I consider myself a storyteller that likes to weave the connections between history, people, heritage, nature and food. I am looking forward to welcoming here, whether virtually or in person! If you are coming to Lisbon soon, contact me for information on my private walking and minivan tours. Cheers!

Ines is my favorite tour guide, but this tour was exceptionally great. This town was on our itinerary to visit last year but had to cancel due to the pandemic, but now I am more excited to visit and enjoy after this tour with Ines. Hopefully next year! She shared a lot of personal stories along with her superb knowledge of everything from history to interesting local interest. She is one of the best tour guides anywhere. Looking forward to more trips with her!
