We had a very rewarding day at Fatima. Daniel, our guide was brilliant. He knew what he was talking about, gave us a local understanding of the area but had a great passion for what he was doing. He made the day very special for us. Nothing was too much trouble and he was happy to let us make our own itinerary or suggest one for us. He took us to a lovely local restaurant for lunch. He had a booster seat for our 4 yr old and was always concious of of our son with all his suggestions and movements. We can wholeheartedly recommend Daniel and the tour he will take you on.

Daniel was super nice , I can't ask for anything more. I had a surgery almost 2 yrs ago in my spinal cord and having some nerve pains and issues from waist down. I try to walk as much as I can and he is very attentive to my needs. During the mass he even got me a wheelchair since it was so hot outside and already tired. I highly recommend him. If I can only give him 10 stars I'll give it

No better way to experience Fatima than with our tour guide Daniela! She picked up our family of five in a comfortable van and tailored our trip to meet our interests. We had all the time we needed to visit the sites of the apparitions and Daniela was extremely knowledgeable about Fatima, the history of Portugal, and every other subject we asked about. The highlight of the trip was attending the English Mass in the afternoon where my son and daughter-in-law were able to participate as readers. I am so happy I booked this tour and will cherish the experience forever in my heart. By the end of the day we felt like family and parted the Portuguese way, with hugs.

Way overdue review visited Fatima Nov 8, 2017 with Daniel as our tour guide. He's simply the best, nonpareil. We had the most wonderful trip to Fatima. Daniel was courteous, gracious, patient, and knowledgeable. The car ride was very comfortable, the conversation entertaining, and the entire trip unforgettable. Little things made the trip great -- the restaurant he recommended he knew the owner, the priest he befriended to bless our rosaries and religious souvenirs, the precise itinerary from the homes of Jacinta, Francisco, and Lucia to the site of the apparitions, the rest stops between Lisbon and Fatima, and even the harvesting of olives a bonus. A trip to remember. Thanks Daniel.

Daniella was truly an amazing tour guide because she is patient, extremely knowledgeable about Fatima and all things Lisbon/Portugal, and personable. My family of four booked this tour because of how comprehensive the itinerary was. Danielle arrived to the neighborhood our Airbnb was located very early and was communicative on how to find her location right down the street since our road was teeny tiny. The van was clean and big enough for four adults the van can absolutely fit more people. She began the tour by sharing the agenda and as we drove to Fatima she gave necessary context for the site as it is highly political just as it is religious. We first went to a religious store that had any type of religious item desired think the Walmart of religious stores, then we went to the shepherds' homes. We then walked along a path where Mary visited the children. We did not walk too much but comfortable shoes are worth wearing. After we went to these sites, all while Danielle shared her knowledge of the events / was consistently able to ask even our most specific questions, she took us to an amazing Portuguese restaurant. The food and staff were remarkable and the lunch is very affordable if you do not order too much food. She did not eat with us, she told us she is not allowed, but gave us ample time to eat before finding us in the restaurant and then taking us to the Fatima shrine. Once there, she shared even more information and guided us through the sites. The true highlight of the day was when Daniella told my parents were to sit during the English mass so they can be picked to do a reading. They were! My mom said it was a once and a lifetime experience and something she will truly cherish. We concluded the tour by going to a small, but excellently designed, museum dedicated to the two young shepherds. The curator of the museum was very friendly and personally took us through the entire museum while highlighting the artifacts from these two children.

To make our experience even more amazing with Daniella, she graciously delivered my Dad's sunglasses to him the following day since he left them in the van, she met us at our Airbnb same place where she picked us up and dropped us off the day before with a smile and returned my dad's glasses. She truly is a gem.

Please book this tour! Any history buff or pilgrim who wants to find quality in content and price--this is 110 worth doing. Daniella will be added to our Christmas card mailing list! Thank you SO much Daniella for all the memories you gave our family.

This tour was outstanding. Danielle, our guide, was brilliant and became a good friend who cared about us the entire time we were in Portugal, not just when we were with her on the tour. She's an expert on architecture, culture, religion, and lots of everyday things we needed to know as simple as how to read the road signs. She answered all my questions and always made me feel like she was answering for the first time. She has a warmth and graciousness about her that just adds to your day. I'm so glad she persuaded me to see all the sights related to the children and village as that became my husband's favorite part of the trip. Fatima is staggering for Roman Catholics but I think others would love the story, the village, the church, the grounds...all of it as well. Thank you, Danielle, and if you ever want to visit the US, you have a place in our home.
