Mario was a super guide, without him, we would not have been able to understand what the rocks were and why they were there. Really fun, I liked the tour a lot.

Easily best tour/guide. Mario is exactly what a guide should be- engaging, enthusiastic, intelligent. Learnt so much more about the area and Portugal than just the monoliths. Physically easy. Learnt a lot about Neolithic period.

Mario's explanation of what these ancient archeological sites means was beyond fascinating. Everything made so much sense about the social organization, religious beliefs, customs and astronomical knowledge of this prehistoric civilization, based on understanding these ancient stone monuments.
