Tania was amazing! Had to start with that! And the group we managed to get was so amazing, we ended up having lunch together and sharing life stories. There is time for everything, to see, to take pictures, to enjoy the moment, even if most times you wish you could stay for much much longer. Strongly recommend it!

We had an amazing experience! I really recommend this tour. Plenty of visits with enough time to visit each highlight. Our guide gave us plenty of recommendations and shared with us very valuable information. (Safety measures were always followed!)

We went on the Fátima, Nazare , Batalha trip . It was fantastic , our guide Manuel could not have been more helpful. His knowledge about the whole trip Excellent. I can’t wait to go on another trip . Definitely recommend it to my friends.
