First class tour. Bus picked us up and dropped us back to hotel. Tour guide and driver were excellent.
This tour is highly recommended! There are several good points I can enumerate:
1. Very convenient – pickup was prompt and directly from the hotel. Drop off was directly to the hotel as well.
2. Content – we went to Obidos, Alcobaca, Nazare, Batalha, and Fatima. This is a lot of places in one day. Our tour guide, Ana, gives remarkable information on the sites while on the bus and on the sites themselves.
3. Value for Money – for the number of sites, experience, and Portuguese history, this brings the most bang for your buck!
4. Free Time on the sites – there are some free time allocated for some sites.
A noteworthy point, if you are after visiting a specific site in detail, like in Fatima, this might not be the best tour for you. Because there is quite little time left for free roaming and exploring, you will quickly run out of time if you want to drill down into more details, or attend service, on the programmed sites.
It was excellent. The coach ride was comfortable and the guide was friendly. It was a lovely day !
Our tour guide, Vanessa, was a sophisticated guide. We not only learnt the history of Fatima, we were also enriched by her knowledgeable introduction in agriculture, culture and other aspects of the region and area wherever the coach passed by.
Although it was a very long day, the guide Ana was charming and humorous and gave us information in reasonable chunks that were easy to absorb. Great trip!
our trip was complete success,i love the food the service and the people,specially the fatima trip
Glad that I could spend some time at Fatima and going in the houses where Lucia, Juanita and Francisco lived was a great experience.
This was a heartwarming experience. Very interesting and full of history. Our tour guide was fantastic! She shared details of each visiting site. She gave us an understanding of what Fatima is all about. We both greatly appreciate the knowledge she shared. One person insisted that our guide speak English only. The guide politely explained that she must speak in the languages everyone understands. Congratulations to her for staying calm and professional.
This was pretty much a standard tour, well-done but unexceptional. However, the basilica was closed, which was not the tour company's fault, but the chapel, the site of the apparitions, was open. All in all, we found it worthwhile.
Worth doing as a tour - The tour guide was very multi-lingual and spoke in about 4 different languages. Only problem with this tour was the inconsideration of a few people on the trip who didn't meet on time thus having to wait for some time. I think we should have just left them behind! Maybe the tour guide should have relayed this message from the onset!
.Fatima was a great experence ..we attended mass and looked around the church and grounds. However,the pick up spot was a diaster, had we not started calling the tour service 1 1/2 hours before pick up we would not have made the tour. Better communication needs to be done. Also not enough time to enjoy fatima.
