This is a 2-day package of day trips from Lisbon. Our first day was the Sintra trip. Excellent guide, and everything people tell you about Sintra is true. This is truly a gem of a place, and with a knowledgeable guide (Martino) you get a great overview of it.
The second day was Fatima/Nazare/Obidos. This was disappointing. Unless you are a devout Catholic with a burning desire to see Fatima, the hour there is wasted, particularly since Obidos is the last stop of the tour and is worth far more than the 45 or so minutes allocated to it.
If we had it to do over, we would skip the Fatima tour and spend the day at Obidos. This place, along with Sintra, has to be among the most beautiful in Portugal. A guided tour of Obidos would be a much better choice.
So, the reason for three stars is: 5 for Sintra, 1 for Fatima.

Note from Viator
Thanks for your review, we asked the Go San Francisco Card staff for a reply to your issues, and here's what they had to say:
'We have made some changes since June 2007. Once a year we re-print the guidebook plus make sure that our local distribution centers are aware of the changes and provide that information to our cardholders. Hopefully this will not be an issue in 2008 and beyond.'
