What You Can Expect
Meet your guide in central Lisbon or get picked up from your Lisbon hotel, and relax on a comfortable coach ride to the Alfama district. Enjoy a guided walking tour of this Moorish neighborhood, the oldest in Lisbon and the birthplace of Fado, Portugal's own music genre. Next, stop at a local shop to sample Portugal's famous Port wine (included).
Back on your coach, take in views of the Tagus River as you continue to the Belém district. Here, see Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries, and visit the Jerónimos Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in the 16th century.
Continue to the Coach Museum (entrance included), which showcases luxury coaches built for the aristocracy, and then have free time for lunch (own expense); try some local delicacies like salted cod or veil. Your guide will recommend some great places according to your preferences.
Fátima Half-Day Trip (Afternoon)
After lunch, hop back on your coach and sit back as you take in views of the Portuguese countryside on the drive to Fátima, an important Catholic pilgrimage site since 1917, when three shepherd children claimed to have seen an apparition of the Virgin Mary, also known as Our Lady of Fátima.
When you arrive, visit Our Lady of Fátima Sanctuary with your guide and see the Chapel of Apparitions, where the Virgin Mary appeared. Then, enjoy free time to explore the site at your own pace and attend mass, if you wish (and if tour time allows).
On the way back to Lisbon, admire more views of the Portuguese countryside.
The morning tour was great going to various places in Lisbon such as the Belem district - the tower, the Monument of the Discoveries, and the Jeronimos Monastery which was very crowded. We were taken to a place in the Alfama District for a glass of port wine. Since the Coach Museum was closed, we went through the National Palace. Our tour guide spoke three different languages Portuguese, English, and German throughout the tour and had a great sense of humor. We had a nice afternoon in Fatima and were able to attend a mass which was outdoors so everyone could see it and participate if you wanted. There was a tiny museum there as well. The reason for the 4 out of 5 was because there was so much to see in the morning/early afternoon that it only left about 45 minutes to find a place to eat and be back at the bus for the afternoon tour. We checked out a couple of restaurants about a 5 minute walk from the meeting place, but felt that we wouldn't have time to eat there. Fortunately, there was a Burger King right there. Otherwise, this was a good way to get an bird's eyeview of Lisbon.
Guide was knowledgeable and helpful; also had a sense of humor.
We touched on the highlights but would have enjoyed more sights. Lisbon is a city with an old world charm. Architecture is preserved, people are friendly, would definitely recommend Lisbon as a city to see and probably do another tour using the tram.
We wanted to go to Fatima and the trip was worthwhile. However, the tour was scheduled at 2PM but should have started earlier since in November, the day is shorter.
The location of the tour office was far from our hotel but there was hotel pick up and drop off which was a plus. Since the departure point was at the top of the Pombal Square, the tourist kiosk nor the bus had no access to restrooms which could be an inconvenience (the travel time to the site was about an hour).
Other than these, my husband and I enjoyed the tour, would recommend it.
Tour guide was great I had her earlier in the day for another tour. She spoke 4 different languages all day so kudos to her! If religion is your thing this is a must do. Long bus ride but a pretty drive and they keep you informed along the way, or you can take a little siesta :)
Very nice trip, we saw many beautiful places in Lisbon and visited Fatima
Overall I would have been better to get the Hop On Hop Off bus ticket and not the half day tour. The other half to Fatima was good but the coach could have been bigger as all seats were full.
