What people are saying about Leiria District

Beautiful day with Hermes. We went first to Fatima where he explained some of the history and then left us on our on. Since it was a Friday and traffic was bad, we returned to Lisbon near the cruise ship where he gave us a wonderful, passionate tour of the original city, told us of the earthquake and rebuilding, the Moors and more. We stopped for an egg custard that is one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life. I would definitely recommend him.

Increíble tour dirigido por Hermes que nos enseño detalladamente cada lugar que visitamos! La van súper cómoda para el camino hacia las dos ciudades, Lo recomiendo al 1000% visitamos Fatima y luego Sintra, precioso! Gracias por todo Hermes!!!
