Evora day trip - Tour or on our own

Jump to last reply

2 Couples (senior citizens but very use to traveling on our own in Europe) are spending 4 days in Lisbon after a cruise in October. Thinking about going to Evora for a day. We go back and forth on whether just to go on our own, by Bus OR take a guided 8 hour day tour. The tours all seem to stop at a cork factory (not sure how interesting that is) a winery and/or a pottery place. Considering we would spend at least 3 hours getting there and back, it makes us unsure of how much time the tour leaves for actually seeing Evora, considering also we will eat lunch there..

The questions are, from those who have been there - Are we better off taking the bus on our own or utilizing one of these tours? Will we get as much out of visiting the sites, since we do not speak Portugese?

Thanks for any help.

Regards, Mary Ann
