We travelled in a group of seven with the kids. Tiago was an outstanding guide, he made sure we were engaged and the kids didn’t get distracted. All questions were fully answered. The stories of the monastery brought us to that time, helping further understand the history of Lisbon and the S. Jerome Monastery. The Tower of Belém was also an amazing place to visit. Viajamos em um grupo de sete com as crianças. Tiago foi um excelente guia, garantiu que estivéssemos envolvidos o tempo todo e que as crianças não se distraíssem durante o tour. Todas as perguntas foram respondidas com detalhes, principalmente as das crianças. As histórias do mosteiro nos levaram para essa época, ajudando a compreender melhor a história de Lisboa e do Mosteiro de S. Jerónimo. A Torre de Belém também foi uma visita muito interessante.
I love the thoroughness and depth of Context tours. Tiago has a great deal of knowledge on art, history, and architecture. Our group got a rich explanation on the importance of Belem in Portugal's history and Tiago was a very good sport when we wanted to stop the tour for a moment to take some pictures....:)
Everything was perfect! Belem was incredibly interesting and we are sold on Context!
