What You Can Expect

Private Tour to Obidos, Nazare, Alcobaca or Batalha and Fatima

Alcobaca, Portugal

After meeting your guide at your Lisbon hotel, enjoy the option to select your private tour’s destinations. If you decide to see Fatima, then select between visiting either Alcobaca or Batalha. If you want to skip Fatima, then you will visit both Alcobaca and Batalha.

If you chose to visit Fatima, begin the day with a drive to this religious site, famous for its 1917 apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima (the Virgin Mary). Learn about the millions of visitors who travel here to pay homage and soak up its spiritual power. Arrive and discover Sanctuary Square whose immensity can be quantified as two times the size of St. Peter's Square in the Vatican. As you stroll with your guide, hear how this area sometimes fills up with 300,000 pilgrims.

Leave Fatima and head onward to Batalha (or Alcobaca, if selected). Here, admire the Monastery of Batalha, the largest gothic-style monastery in Portugal. Listen as your guide shows you how the Manueline and gothic architectural styles integrate and are a symbol of the former empire’s age of maritime development.

If you selected to visit Alcobaca, then voyage to the town’s 12th century monastery. Explore the stunning architecture of this renowned building and learn about its historical monuments that are dedicated to D. Ines de Castro and King D. Pedro I.

Continue from here to the small fishing town of Nazare. Break for lunch in this charming town before heading to your last stop in Obidos. Arrive at this walled medieval town and gain insight about Portuguese kings and queens who protected this strategic position by forming calculated noble traditions.

Knowledgeable and attentive guide. Great tour about 10 hours long. Try and find a less touristy lunch spot, as it is your choice, and maybe that would speed things along. Monastaries were amazing, as well as the beach in Nazare. Top notch!

The four of us enjoyed a wonderful day in the Portuguese countryside. We were picked up on time by a very knowledgeable and personable guide. Our first stop was Fatima. We spent a couple of hours here and then proceeded to a world heritage site where we saw the tomb of Prince Henry the Navigator. For lunch we stopped at the lovely seaside village of Nazare. From here we toured a medieval walled city . We all agreed that this day was the highlight of our trip to Portugal.This is the only way to see these sights especially if you have a group of four or more not only is it economical but you get to see so much more of Portugal..

The van was on time when he picked us up at our hotel. One of the pluses of this tour was our guide, not only was he knowledgeable but also very friendly and spoke perfect English. Because this was a private tour he offer us the flexibility of pretty much customizing the tour by determining the length of time we wanted to spend at each place visited. We had a fantastic lunch in Nazare right on the beach. A fantastic private tour.
