Our tour guide was very informative, friendly and helpful. Very easy to find the tour starting point. Excellent, would recommend to anyone who wants to visit the lovely sight of Fatima
The best part of the tour is the guide who kept us informed about the history of Fatima and why it is so special.
Comfortable bus and an informed guide but I had no English leaflet on the shrine only Portugeese so had to get this myself. Also it would have been cheaper to have purchased this tour direct from thr Yellow Bus as they gave a senior citizen discount. I am awaiting a refund.
Our tour guides were extremely knowledgeable on the subject of Fatima, our ride was smooth and comfortable. We hadd just enough time to experience the basilica and its surroundings. I'd like to commend Viator for hiring intelligent, accommodating tour guides and drivers. They made me want to use your companyfor all our future travels. Thank you Caterina and Vazco!!!
First I have to gripe about other Viator reviewers: Please write more than just "it was excellent" as this tells me nothing about the tour. Please write details, be more descriptive.*Second* Viator can be absolutely WRONG on meeting point details. I almost missed this trip cuz they were wrong as to where to meet, it's not in the square. The only thing that saved me was that there was a tourism office in the square and they told me where to go with seconds to spare. Even the number to call had nobody to pick up. Now then, we went to Fatima 2 days before the big anniversary/holiday they celebrate with a million people. We lucked out, we saw big pilgrim groups, hikers, kneelers, all without the big crowd effect. The place is massive like the Vatican, but the Basilica is not as big but still very impressive, architecture, views, etc. You basically are given free time to go explore, so I just did the basillica, mass area, saw the candle fire area and then went straight to town for shopping and eats. Shopped at both the big square and where they are mixed in with the cafes, one shop i stopped at a young woman was so nice rounding down the prices of everything I asked about without even haggling. Well worth the trip.

This was a wonderful trip to Fatima. We wished we could have spent a little more time there because it would have been nice to attend Mass.
Fatima itself is a great place. I have been there twice. Its about and hour and a half drive. The tour guide was friendly and did a lot of talking. You have about a two hour stay where you can do some shopping after visiting the shrine. I could not find the meeting point in the plaza and when I called asking for directions the guy hung up on me. We almost missed the trip because of him not wanting to help me out. So if your back is to the river the small kiosk in on the top left hand side of the plaza.
Well organised and informative trip with a very good guide. An emotional event for all who go there - I don't think I have heard so many different languages spoken in one place.
Not much time allowed to see what needed to be seen, but other than that the trip was okay.
it was a fantastic and meangiful visit to the Basilica of Fatima and a worthwhioe trip for the catholic faithful. Even though the journey was a bit long, we were fortunate to have the professional service of a personable and knoweledgeable guide, who spoke excellent English. Not only did she give us a full backkground of the historical event, she was also very helpful with other information relating to our tour of Lisbon, and painfully answered questions that first-time tourists like us raised regarding the culture, life and other aspects of getting around in the capital city. All in all, a commendable half-day tour to all.
enThe ride and the guide were wonderful. We had a beautiful and awesome trip. The only problem was that the free time should have been at least another hour as we did not have enough time to make all the purchases we had hoped for.
This tour provides you comfortable transportation to Fatima with a very limited history of the sights along the way. Ideally it would have been nice to hear more from our tour guide or provide a movie to give a history of the area. Upon arrival, you are given 90 minutes to see both churches and take in all the sights, which was a bit rushed for us.
