Monsanto, city of stone, dates back to the early Stone Age period itself. Yet this beautiful and highly unique village in the Northeastern sector of Portugal was not actually constructed until late in the 12th century. It is classified as one of the top twelve most historic villages in the country and the city’s clock-tower boasts the image of the Silver Rooster in acknowledgment of this prestigious award. The region’s more current settlement dates back to Roman times which was at the base of the mountain. Due to the large boulders atop the mountain they did not try to build up higher. Later Visigoths and Moors settled the same region and in the 12th century, King Afonso Henriques, the first King of Portugal, conquered the region as part of the Christian recapturing the Iberian Peninsula. In 1165, he granted custody of the city to the Order of Knights Templar who began construction on the fortress at the top. The village below was constructed around the granite boulders much later. Unfortunately, the medieval castle was destroyed in the nineteenth century due to an explosion. However, the remains of the fortress and the incredibly unique, charming and friendly village is worth the visit.

5 of 5 stars I had planned a 5 hours visit to Lisbon, my flight was late, Jorge was waiting for at the airport for more than 2 hours, unfortunately, my trip was rsduced to three hours only. Jorge knew exactly where to take me and what to show me according to my profile, a very knowledgable guide, friendly and interactive. Highly recomended.
5 of 5 stars This was the first time I've used a personal tour guide and I have to say Jorge made the experience delightful. He was professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable in choosing the best spots to visit in the time we had available. I highly recommend him.
5 of 5 stars I can not say enough! We toured all day yesterday with Jorge! He was phenomenal! My husband ended up having a meeting in the morning, so I went by myself and toured Lisbon with Jorge. Perfect! Way better than sitting around the hotel waiting for the meeting to end. After his meeting was finished we took off for Fatima for the rest of the afternoon. We learned a ton and Jorge made sure we saw all of the main points along the way. It was a great first full day in Portugal and relief to be taken care of after fighting with changed flights the 2 days before. Thank you so much for making this trip so memorable!
5 of 5 stars This was the perfect way to spend my last day in Portugal. A friend had recommended Jorge's tour and I was not disappointed. I told Jorge what I wanted to see, and he made some suggestions and did the rest. As we were driving he pointed out places of interest and explained the history of Portugal. He knew the 'secrets' of each place we visited- such as being able to walk on top of the wall around Obidos, and the stairway below the lighthouse at Nazare. I never felt rushed, and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I would give Tours by Jorge ten stars- but five is the maximum allowed!
5 of 5 stars I just spent two days touring with Jorge....to Fatima and to Sintra. Very knowledgable, very courteous, an excellent and careful driver. His love of his country is obvious and he went out of his way to show me as much of it as we could fit in within our two day window. Very easy to understand, his English was excellent. On parts of the tour I was left to explore on my own. I liked that, particularly in Fatima, although others might prefer a guide that accompanies them every step of the way. I would definitely book with Jorge again. Quiet, humble, attentive. A gentleman.
5 of 5 stars Tours by Jorge was the perfect way to see some of the main site for our family. Our driver was perfect and knew all the great places to go. She was knowledgeable about the areas history and was able to make it relatable for us and what we were seeing. I would totally recommend Jorge and his group to anyone who is planning a trip Portugal.
5 of 5 stars Jorge is extremely knowledgable about his beautiful country. He took us on a historical and cultural tour of Lisbon, including a night of Fado. Then down through the Alentejo and all along the sunny Algarve. Everywhere we went, he dropped us into amazing rural tourism locations. From there we could do our own exploring too. He guided us to amazing local restaurants, wineries, beaches, surf waves, and so much more. Having someone who speaks the language is incredibly helpful! I highly recommend Tours by Jorge for any type of trip you're seeking...
5 of 5 stars Jorge met us at the airport, and made our 5 days in Portugal so easy and relaxing. Jorge was professional, knowledgeable and knew so many greats facts and history about the area. We so enjoyed our trip to Sintra. He surprised us with a special private wine tour, suggested a fabulous place for lunch, and showed us all the sites of the region. A perfect combination to make this a trip of a lifetime!
5 of 5 stars We wanted to see Lisbon but knew it'd be too difficult to navigate on our own so we chose Tours by Jorge because it didn't need to be a whole group, he was very accommodating and flexible and we couldn't have asked for more, he is informative and ever threw in a special treat of cherry liquor. We wanted to feel the culture of Portugal and he gave it and ended it with an excellent lunch at Atasca in Cascai! We highly recommend Tours by Jorge!
5 of 5 stars All day trip to Lisbon castle, center, Jesus monument, and Fatima went very smoothly with Jorge. Car was spacious and clean, and he was very accommodating to all our needs, including the two children. Provided us a phone to call him whenever we needed him back to pick us up that day, and he was super timely. Thanks for a great tour! We loved it.
Tours by Jorge is absolutely amazing! 5 of 5 stars Jorge is very professional, kind, knowledgeable and made my experience the best. Jorge is very respectable and a true gentleman. During the drives, Jorge gave very interesting history lessons on the beautiful country of Portugal and the towns that we visited. He stopped at various historic sites and allotted enough time to walk around, sightsee, take pictures and enjoy the moment. I fell in love with Lisbon and I know that Tours by Jorge made this happen. Jorge took us to some of the hidden gems of this beautiful country. I am forever grateful and will definitely be back to visit! I highly recommend Tours by Jorge to anyone visiting Portugal!
Tours by Jorge catered perfectly to our family tours. Jorge took us on several day trips including Sintra, Lisbon, wine tasting and southern coastal adventures. My husband and I enjoyed the depth of history instilled during the tours and our younger daughter enjoyed the balanced fun that was sprinkled though out. Everyone's needs were addressed and taken care of. Whether you design your own tour or leave it up to Tours by Jorge rest assured you will come away from your day feeling well taken care and richer for the experience. Jorge is professional, personable and easy to work with. Do yourself a favor and leave the logistics to Tours by Jorge, sit back and enjoy Portugal!
5 of 5 stars Tours by Jorge We have travel quite extensively through Europe and have many experiences with private tours and bus tours. So we are writing this review with the opportunity to express our gratitude to Jorge for the most complete tour we have ever taken. We were so impressed with his knowledge of his beloved Lisbon. Our only regard is we did not plan more time in Lisbon and trips with Jorge. Also we used Jorge for our transportation to the airport for a 3.30 AM pick up for our 6.00 am flight Based on our experience with Jorge we definitely are concerning a return to LISBON ONLY. Also with our experience with the detail of his tours we have advised our travel agent to advise any of their other customers that our planning to visit Lisbon to use his services for tours and transportation to and from the airports and cruise lines. With closing we cannot say enough of the day we spent with JORGE Donna & John
5 of 5 stars To whom ever reads this. I have lived in and visited many countries and I don't like wasting time and money when I go to new locations. Bus tours are good in some cases but there is nothing like this personalised tour offered here. Not only is Jorge a good and safe driver he is well informed about the sites and locations around Portugal. My wife and I decided to take a trip with Jorge and never experienced such anticpated requirements and professionalism. The car is luxurious and well kept and he ensures safety at any location you visit. Including where and what to eat in remote locations. We took his Fatima tour and diverted to a site which was not originally on track and where busses do not go. This was great! Not having to navigate sites based on # of people on a bus or schedules was also a very attractive component of this service. I would not hesitate to do this type of tour and with Jorge over the bus tour. The cost overall when you consider convenience and time is actually better than the bus tours offered. Do not think twice. Well done Jorge! Keep up the good work. You are doing your country proud.
