Why Travelers Choose This Tour

It's a relaxed and scenic excursion that combines a visit to a major Christian pilgrimage site with countryside sightseeing.
Meet your guide in central Lisbon and hop into an air-conditioned minivan for your small-group guided day trip to Fátima, Nazaré and Óbidos. Begin with a journey north to the once quaint village of Fátima now a prominent Christian sanctuary. Arrive and learn about the three shepherd children who claimed to see Our Lady of Fátima dressed in white in 1917. Stroll with your guide to the famous Sanctuary of Fatima, a basilica which draws millions of religious people annually who homage to the shrine.

From here, travel to the 14th-century Batalha Monastery renowned for its compelling examples of of ornate gothic architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the monastery, follow your guide into the royal tomb and see the Founder’s Chapel. Hear about the noble family that rests here including Queen Philippa of Lancaster, King João I and their heir Prince Henry the Navigator.

Continue to the quiet fishing village of Nazaré, a favorite summer vacation spot for the Portuguese. Here, take a break for lunch at a local cafe or restaurant (own expense). Learn about the locals who fish here before heading onward to the Nazaré cliffs. Reach the gorgeous small towns of São Martinho do Porto and Foz do Arelho and whip out your camera for quaint farm-country shots. 

Next, cruise along the impressive cliff-laden coast as you journey to Óbidos, a medieval village established in 208 BC. Enter past its fortified walls and discover slender streets, gothic facades, and vibrant houses. Alongside your guide, learn about King Dinis who gifted Óbidos to his new wife Queen Isabel in 1282 which led locals to refer to Óbidos as ‘wedding present town.’ As you walk notice the window sills decorated with flower pots and colorful tiles. Then, stop at a local wine shop for a taste of Ginja liqueur, a cherry flavored spirit and perhaps savor a snack. Finally, enjoy perusing through an artisan’s shop with a wide variety of handmade ceramics before returning to Lisbon where your tour concludes.

Our tour guide Mar was amazing. She was very passionatte about her role and was very conscientious about everyone on the tour. Our bus has 8 people and we had a great time. Each destitnation was fantastic. Our lunch was delicious. The lunch was 1.5 hours, relaxed and enjoyable however in hindsight we would have preferred a shorter lunch and more time in Óbidos

Paulo did a good job of explaining the history and gave us very good suggestions on where to eat. The only negative was that there was two times when we were driving a distance and nothing was said. He could have added some things into the trip during that time

Andre , our guide, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable on the history . He was very willing to share everything he knew with us. He spoke English very well and was willing to give us a little more time than was scheduled in the towns. I would definitely recommend him as your tour guide.

This was our first tour of our trip. Incidentally it was on a Sunday which made it fitting for Fatima and Nazare. There was a mass which drew a huge crowd of people. We also saw a piece of the Berlin Wall, which was pretty fascinating. Our tour guide Luis was energetic, talked a lot and made us laugh. On our way to and from the tour, Luis imparted to us quite a bit of Lisbon's history which was very interesting. There was so much to see and do that our tour went past the usual 8 hours. Luis was in no rush and inquired if any of us had any specific plans for the evening. No one did and so we just savored the day. Just one draw back to this tour, you will have to meet your tour guide as there is no hotel pick up and drop off. This tour is definitely a must.

Miguel was amazing!! Not only did he provide a lot of historical background on each destination, but his “small-talk” was refreshing and genuine. Had a wonderful time!
