Daniella was very knowledgable and friendly. She accommodated our requests during the private tour and adjusted her schedule.
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.
Daniela was amazing. She picked us up exactly on time, was fully equipped for the day tour, was full of information dissertation? during the tour of the village and the houses where the children lived and the apparations took place. Very special! it was a very hot day, but she kept us hydrated. Took us to a good lunch place, where she surreptitiously arranged for a piece of cake and a candle and got the staff to sing me happy birthday! gave us plenty of time to go to mass and walk around on our own we asked for this. This is the tour we splurged on and it was WELL worth it!
It was our first vacation to Lisbon. We wanted to visit Fatima. My wife and I looked online and debated whether to go with a small group tour that visits 3-4 places or a full day fatima private tour. We settled on a full day fatima private tour and did not really know what to expect. We were extremely happy it turned out very well. Our tour guide Daniel picked us up at our hotel at 8:30am in a private car exactly as they said online. Daniel was very friendly and eager to show us around. He spent an entire day with us showing us around and explaining things. He made sure that we had time to attend the English mass. We got back to our hotel in Lisbon at 7pm. As Catholics, the visit to Fatima was a spiritual experience for us. Thank you very much Daniel for your time and your hospitality! One minor safety suggestion: the speed was so fast on freeway as compared to the US for me to swallow. So I suggest DO NOT check phone messages or talk on phone while driving at 130km/hr. I was very nervous about it. Again Thank you!
Wonderful tour of Fatima with our guide, Danielle. She was very informative and made sure we were comfortable. I would highly recommend this private tour.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Daniel. In addition to being quite informative he enthusiastically shared his devotion to Fatima. He was very successful in making our visit very personal and memorable.
A very interesting and well designed tour which we both enjoyed. Most importantly, the Guide was very friedly but never in our facein allowing us time to spend in each of the sites we visited. Entire trip was well organised.
Fantastic experience! Extremely well organised and structured. Daniela our guide was amazing- went above and beyond what was expected of her to make this experience special and memorable for us. Much appreciated! It was worth every cent -one I would totally recommend.
great guide and keypt us away from crowds the detail given and sites we visited great highly recommend
Daniele was a wonderful guide. He picked us up at 8:30 a.m. at our hotel and returned us there about 5:30 p.m. He is very knowledgeable about Fatima, and took us everywhere, including to the children's homes, where we were able to meet Lucia's niece, who lives nearby. We also saw the church the children attended growing up, the places of the angel apparitions, the place of Mary's apparition, the basilica, and more. He knows when Mass is said in various languages at the basilica, recommended a restaurant for lunch in town, and took us to a large gift shop. He arranged the visit so we didn't bump into large tour groups. He will tailor your tour to whatever it is you'd like to see there. He arranged the visit so we didn't bump into large tour groups.
Our trip to Portugal and Fatima could not have been better. Daniella our guide was exceptional from the moment she picked us up to the time we returned. Fatima was an emotional and spiritual experience for us. Daniella was so wonderful about explaining every detail. Our day was relaxed as we strolled the area visiting with Daniella as she shared the history of Fatima. Being Catholic it meant a lot to us to have a Catholic Guide who understood the history of Fatima and understood our emotions and importance of going to mass. This was truly a trip I never thought would happen, we did not request a Catholic Guide so God really had his hand in the entire day including Daniella.
Magnificat DanielMagnificent! We went on a day long tour to Fatima from Lisbon with Daniel as our tour guide. He promptly picked us at 0830 up at our hotel and proved to be an extremely polished, courteous, thoroughly knowledgeable, and caring guide and an extremely good driver! The vehicle was extremely comfortable with a great cooling system Portugal was having historically high temperatures, and on this day we experienced over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, so the cool car was very much appreciated! There wasnt a question he couldnt answer or a place in Fatima that he didnt know. The sequencing of stops all day was spot on, from the first stop at a factory outlet mall to purchase religious items to be blessed later at a Mass, to the Mass itself. Daniel took us to all the sites, from the family homes of Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco in Aljustrel, all the apparitions sites, the two basilicas, where in the older one all three are buried, and including a fantastic restaurant for lunch, O Pereira. He went above and beyond, when at the English language Mass, the celebrants forgot to bless the religious items, so Daniel immediately tracked down one of the priests who proceeded to bless all of our religious items. It was a magical day! A minor suggestion would be to consider allotting some time, perhaps 30 minutes to visit a shop or two in Aljustrel, as there seemed to be some interesting items to consider. When seeking to visit Fatima from Lisbon, this tour is the way to go as the sites are scattered and difficult to get to unless you have a car. We highly recommend Magnificat tours and especially Daniel! Ask for Daniel as your Fatima tour guide!
i really recommend this tour , the guide was fantastic , very informative and patient with all the questions we asked . nothing was rushed , she constantly asked if she needed more time as we went round. a truly brilliant blessed day out.
We had a great day on this tour. Daniella our guide was very knowledgeable and struck the right balance between points of interest and religious background. Her local knowledge was very useful and she was very friendly throughout the day. I would recommend this tour.
