Elena is the tour guide from hell! She was rude to the passengers, telling people over the microphone to stop talking while she is talking. She also individually approached those who were late in coming back to the bus to scold them. Apparently, I was the only one from the group who was staying overnight in Fatima, and when I asked her about the arrangements, she quickly shrugged that the company did not tell her anything about it. When she did find out the details, she told me to cross to the other side of the Fatima sanctuary with my luggage to check in by myself, because according to her the bus is too big to go there. But in fact, another bus went near the hotel to pick me up the next day!

As to the tour itself, 50 minutes is too short to enjoy Obidos. It should also be made clear in the description that the cloisters of Batalha are NOT included in this tour. There were not much information or guidance given in Fatima -- I was just left on my own on the second day except for the transfer back to my hotel. I definitely think this tour could have been better with a different guide.

Doing what: 2-Day Sacred Portugal Trip: Fátima, Batalha, Sítio, Nazaré and Óbidos, from Lisbon
