This tour was very interesting, beautiful. The tour guide did not interpret everything into English that she did into other languages. The tour could’ve been shorter. We spent a lot of time that was not necessary especially at our last stop where are most everything was closed
Enjoy the convenience of being picked up at your hotel in Lisbon and then being driven directly to the Sanctuary of Fatima.

This journey is a photoshot of the cultural heritage of three significant places, the medieval town of Óbidos, the magnificent monastic gothic church at Batalha, the basilica at Fátima and the original houses where the visionaries were born and lived. As an added extra, the tour visits the seaside town of Nazaré for a short photo opportunity. The tour achieves all this and includes a recommended optional lunch in Fátima. This tour is a perfect opportunity to explore these places quickly within a day and with the exception of Óbidos where you can get distracted by shopping, ginja and food (all good distractions!), it allows enough time to visit each of the attractions sufficiently to enjoy & appreciate them. The tour, in my case was bilingual but did not detract from the enjoyment or value of it. It is well thought out & as a result comes highly recommended.
Very good tour, it was quite informative with a great guide, delicious lunch and wonderful sights all around. Highly recommended.
Great tour guide. Andrea alternated between Spanish and English for the tour. She was very informative and caring.
The only comment is that there should have been a little more time at Fatima.
Tour guide was great, I do think tour guides should get a gratuity!
