Francisco our tour guide/driver was great - knowledgeable and engaging and a big fan of Benfica
Excellent tour, with a very knowledgeable guide. Small group of 6 in a minivan was perfect.
Very interesting trip and a great tour guide. Beautiful places, landscapes and tasty food. However, next time I would not choose this trip on Sunday since Fatima was extremly crowded and I could not see much of it.
There are so much you see and learn in this tour! It is a must! Was one of my favorite tours while in Lisbon. Do not miss it!
Very good tour, would recommend the copy. Our guide was excellent, knowledge, and from above others
I had a fantastic day on this tour. Firstly, our guide was fantastic he was friendly, well organised and put in lots of effort so we had a good time. The touring van was comfortable and the driving was safe.
The itinerary was well balanced and we saw some really beautiful scenery which would be difficult to reach without a guide/ touring van. In addition to Nazare and Obidos, Fatima was also interesting and we spent just the right amount of time there.
Would definitely recommend this tour.
We had a wonderful time. Just the right amount of time at each stop and our tour guide knew his stuff. Interesting things to see at each city for everyone in our group young and old. Highly recommend! However, the church at Fatima is closed until Jan 2016 to prepare for the Pope to visit. Other things to see there but be aware.
Nadia was our wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable and informative. She was very friendly and went out of her way to please us. I would rate her 5 star as a wonderful guide. If ever we went back I would love for her to be our guide again. Loved this tour package. It was very small and very personalized tour. For tour and the guide Nadia. She made it better.
It was a very good tour. Enjoyed our tour guide. Gave a lot of significant information. Just wish more time was given at Obidos, so many things to do.
Although Fatima was a long trip about 2 1/2 with a comfort stop it was well worth it. Seeing Fatima for the first time was like seeing the Vatican for the first time. VAST! Very spiritual. We were given time on our own which was exactly enough time. We stopped in Nazare a beautiful beach town for lunch and free time. Great shops and numerous restaurants. Other stops were at Batalha Monastery - we were there in time for the changing of the guards of the unknown soldier. This place was so beautiful, I wish we had more time here. And finally a stop in Obidos. A beautiful Medieval walled town with quaint streets, numerous shops and a wall you can walk 1,565 meters long but slipery. We were a little off schedule but no fault of the driver. Andre Marques was an excellent tour guide/driver. The van sat 9 including the Andre and very comfortable. The van was equipped with a microphone so everyone including the last row could hear - but he loved his music as well! He was very gracious and I highly recommend him and his company.
Loved this day trip and a special thanks to our guide Rita, who made it a memorable experince. First stop was Fatima where we got about an hour, but would have liked to have at least another 30mts. Nazare and Obidos were spectacular. Lunch at Nazare is worth a mention.Rosa dos Ventos restaurant served us a sumptous sword fish grill, the taste of which will remain with us for quite a while. Obidos is another beautiful and lively town where we got a taste of ginja liquer.
Obidos is gorgeous white village in castles wall...beautiful beaches in nazare n try a seafood stew w pasta local specialty there for lunch! ... Fatima has the modern church n the original Virgin Mary but unfortunately preparing for the big anniversary so can't go in. Checkout the hidden museum .
It was a wonderful day! We really enjoyed the small group. Our tour guide was fabulous! Can't wait to visit again one day.
This tour is great as you get to see three cities in one day. Our guide spent the exact right amount of time in each location. Going with a private guide eliminates all the guesswork involved in directions, parking, etc. It made for an interesting, relaxing day.
Very nice trip! Martinho was very helpful and gave us a lot of information. He was so nice because he realized that my family speaks Spanish and he spoke to them in spanish. The places were amazing and he gave us enough time to explore each place.
The guide was wonderful for this trip. He explained where we were going and the historical significance of it. We were picked up from a central Lisbon restaurant and driven in small, nice passenger van. There were 8 of us in the group, and that was perfect! Such beautiful sites.
The cherry liqueur Ginjinha in Obidos is the best we tasted around Portugal, so make sure you buy it from the tasting shop that you do when you enter the town. We bought two bottles to bring back to the States and bought our own chocolate tasting cups in the States due to being afraid they would break in transit. The castle walls are neat and you can climb on them, however it is windy so keep that in mind if you are wearing a skirt!
Fatima was very nice, but the church is closed until 2017 to get it ready for the Popes visit for the 100 year anniversary of the apparitions. But, you can go to the back of the Chapel and see the graves of the three children. There are nice and unique shops if you go behind the Berlin Wall display and walk past the little shops and go into the town 25 yards. We found an artistic shop with locally made statues and glass rosary beads in another one and everyone was friendly.
Nazare is a beautiful beach and has nice restaurants along the board walk. Make sure you go to the local artisan shop and buy local items! Its pricey, but has nice things made in Portugal.
We met people from around the world and kept seeing them around Lisbon after the tour, which was nice. We met two sisters from Australia that I wish wed gotten their contact info!!
Excellent trip. Wish we could stay in Obidos a bit longer, it is a must see for every tourist in Portugal.
Lewis our tour guide was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. He is a credit to the company. The small tour in a mini bus is a very good idea.
This tour was one of the best I've ever taken. Our tour guide Augusto was fabulous! Drive safely, kept us on time, answered our questions, and shared a lot of information about Portugal as we drove from place to place. Had about an hour at each stop on our own and a great lunch, even for a vegan.
Our guide, Tiago, was excellent. He was very informative and kept the tour on time with seeming to rush anyone. The small number of people on the tour was also great. Glad we. Took the tour.
Our guide Luis was exceptionally knowledgeable with insights into Portuguese culture......very patient and accommodating, yet on schedule with every sight visited!
great tour guide Peter. Had plenty of free time at Fatima and Nazare and Obidos. I recommend this tour
Excellent personal tour, due to only 6 on comfortably air conditioned bus. Would highly recommend. Our tour guide Nuno was the best.
