Cork Factory

We start our Evora Tour with a visit to a traditional cork factory where we will understand all the cork process, check the tree (cork tree), its extraction, the quality choice, and the preparation to the final product.

Do you knew that the Cork Oak’s bark grows every year and that from nine to nine years it has to be removed from the tree, reaching 25 centimeters thick, cork its the perfect material resistant to heat, cold and fire.

Portugal is responsible for 55% of the world’s cork production, which is now highly valued in decorative coatings for walls and floors, or even in the manufacture of sports goods, the ideal material for baseball grains or fishing rods. However in many countries cork is best known for being the raw material for wine stops, since it allows micro-portions of oxygen to stay in contact with wine, so that wine can “age” while maintaining its quality. As you can see our Evora Tour has a lot to learn …

Sao Pedro do Corval Potteries

Monsaraz

Monsaraz, with its walls in excellent condition, in a revival of medieval times, one of the best preserved Portuguese historic villages, white walls of lime and shale, with the wind whispering between its streets and sidewalks.

So many stories of daring kings, Templar´s, so many different civilizations had pass through Monsaraz, the visit to it´s Castle is imperative, as well as admire the giant lake dividing Portugal and Spain.

Local Winery

In our Evora Tour we have the possibility to visit and tasting in a local winery, accompanying the whole process of this “nectar” of the Gods  at some of the most important Portuguese wineries, the choice of visit is related to the winery agenda, which may be from a wide range of wineries in this region such as Cartuxa or Ervideira.

Alentejo its a region that produces unique wines, hot and dry climate, it is indispensable to use drip system in the vineyard, with soils and reliefs a very sunny area that allows a perfect maturation of the grapes.

Evora

Time now to enjoy Evora, explore this beautiful medieval village that make fall in love thousands of people every year, being the Bones Chapel that attracts more attention, this sinister chapel with its walls and pillars lined with human bones and skulls from more than 5,000 monks. Do not be alarmed if at the entrance you read; “We bones here are waiting for you,” leading us to reflect on life.

Another monument of great value is the Temple of Diana or Evora Temple, which justifies the importance that Romans gave to this beautiful city, close to the Cathedral, built in the Roman period, from here we can visualize the magnificent aqueduct, outside the city walls and extending from the it´s outskirts, some of its arches are still visible inside the city, built in the XVI th century to ensure water transportation.

Not only did Romans live here, the Arabs built their streets and alleys in the 11th and 12th centuries, Evora was even home of some Portuguese kings, a point of convergence of renowned artists, supported by the ruling patronage and Portuguese dynasty.

“Transfer airport / hotel and vice versa, day trip to Evora.”

We were in Lisbon a few days ago, on the way to and from a tour of `Scandinavia. The Walkborder was impeccable with us, on punctuality, in respect – we are elderly traveling in group of 5 – and on the suggested rides. A special compliment to Andre, an official who has accompanied us all the time, humorous, respectful, patient, always attentive. He became our friend. Thank you all to this excellent company.

We made our first trip to Portugal and decided to hire the Walkborder because I was traveling with my 3 year old son and my elderly parents! It was the best experience I could get they are simply perfect from the first contact with Mr Hugo who answered me promptly taking all my doubts to the excellent professional Mr Joaquim who led us through the whole 10 day trip a wonderful person with a super knowledge gave us a lesson about everything we witness !!!! Congratulations team Walkborder you guys were excellent without words to thank the caring with our family! see you later

We traveled through several cities of Portugal, always leaving Lisbon. Our group was 7 people and we were accompanied by the driver / guide João Ramos, knowledgeable about the routes and history, which contributed greatly to the satisfaction of all. João Ramos also gave several tips on restaurants and places to visit, always attentive and helpful.
From the first contacts, we were always well taken care of by Mr. Hugo, including helping us in the elaboration of the scripts.

Walkborder Tours arranged a half day tour of a cork area, the Portuguese country side, and even prevailed on the manager of a cork factory to come in on a Sunday and give us a tour of the factory. It was a pleasure traveling with someone who truly loves and respects his country…so much history and information. It certainly helped that Jorge is a history graduate and a passionate follower of many social and economic happenings.
Had a great time, Jorge, thank you.

I met Walkborder on the Internet, I saw some videos on Youtube and I found the model of tourism that they sell sensational. From the first email contact with Mr. Hugo, until the moment of rendering the service through Mr. Jorge Brás we were very well treated. With a different education of both. I traveled with my mother to a trip of religious interest to Fatima, we also went to Sintra and we did the tour in Lisbon, we also visited the houses of Já traveled by Europe making Mochilão, I traveled alone and with excursion and I found the model offered by the sensational Walkborder. I wanted other countries in Europe to have this model. Since they are the Walkborder that fit our wants and desires what makes it a distinct company in the tourism industry. I give a special thanks to the guide who accompanied us to Mr. Jorge Brás, who gave us a lesson about Portugal, and we were interested in learning more about this beautiful country. I rate it as an experience in high style. Congratulations to all.
