I closed the tour here 4 days before and it was wonderful. The driver Hermes, in addition to being exceptionally punctual, insisted on taking us and showing us everything. He knew the stories and made sure to surprise us by showing us places we weren't expecting. We will do whenever possible tours with you.

Hermes was an excellent guide, he was punctual at the indicated point and gave us free time in Fatima to visit the basilica and our points of interest at our own pace. At all times he provided us with the facilities to be able to know the different attractions as we went, since I traveled with an older adult.

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!!!

Small group is better more comfortable and can be more flexible
