What You Can Expect

Fátima, Nazaré, and Óbidos Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon

Fatima, Nazare and Obidos Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon

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.

Great experience! Guides were knowledgeable and spoke Portuguese and very good English. Vans were equipped with microphones and speakers made easy to hear everything guide was saying.

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!

This was a spectacular trip and so glad that we booked it. The towns we visited were beautiful and rich with history that was explained perfectly by our guide. Although it was a nine hour day excursion, the time seemed to fly as we were seeing and learning so much about the region, thanks to our driver/guide. We will use this service again in the future if the occasion arises.
Thank You.

Fatima churches and museum are worth seeing for their religious significance; though it is difficult to see everything in an hour. Nazare is beautiful (especially from the lookout above the town) and quite interesting, especially if you walk beyond the shops to see ladies sun-dry fish on the beach. Obidos is a charming walled city though a bit commercialized; be sure to walk on the walls for great views. We also stopped at Batalha, the monastery pictured in the ad; it is amazing. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable so our day was very enjoyable. I highly recommend this trip.

Our driver was Carlos.
He had the perfect personality for a tour. Great sense of humor and very patient. The sites we visited were well chosen by the company. Everyone met at a central meeting point and Viator was very well organized. Our van of 8 was clean and comfortable. Carlos used a microphone so everyone could hear. A great day and we would visit with Viator again.

We enjoyed the day trip. Our guide Joao was excellent, very knowledgeable about the places we visited and we learned a lot from him. The visit to Fatima was an amazing experience, a must while in Portugal, the stop in Nazare was increíble with lunch near the beach, the Batalha monasterywas a great visit, Olidos is such a unique experience, also a must. We were with our 12 and 10 year old daughters and met another couple on the Spanish small group tour, overall a must do while in Portugal, we only had a few days there and were very happy about selecting this tour! Don't forget to tip your guide!

Had a fascinating day visiting Fatima, Nazare and Obidos. Pedro, our tour guide and driver was friendly and highly informative. It was a small group of 8 people in the van. The tour was conducted in English and Pedro was fluent in the language. The trip to Fatima took about 1 and a half hours from Lisbon. Fatima became famous after the 1917 apparition of Mother Mary by 3 children. The church itself was beautiful and had large expanse of ground in front of the church for pilgrims. We visited Batalha, a historic Unesco Heritage sight rich in history relating to the Portuguese monarchy and formation of Portugal.
We had lunch at the coastal town of Nazares. Beautiful stretch of beach and restaurants serving lovely seafood. Grilled sea bass and octopus was fresh and delicious.
The last place in the tour was castle at Obidos. Beautiful caste walls and rich in history as explained by Pedro.
This tour is recommended without reservations.

I really enjoyed this tour. Miguel was very informative, and the amount of free time in each location was perfect. On this itinerary, we went to Obidos as a last stop in the afternoon, and it was less crowded. Batalha was a surprisingly good stop on the way to Nazare.
