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.

Please do this tour! And ask for Edgar. He is incredibly knowledgable and open to lots of questions. His English is exceptional. The Mercedes mini bus could not have been cleaner or more comfortable. And the experience was worth the entire trip. Then check out Edgar's blog about the best of Lisbon and Portugal.

Thelma was a wonderful, personable and informative tour guide. Great to get out of Lisbon and see the country. Fantastic lunch in Nazare at a small family owned fish restaurant. Really enjoyed Obidos and walking around this quaint fortress. Bought a cork purse. Amazing what they can do with the part of a tree.

This was a wonderful tour. Everything clicked - the pickup, the tour guide, Fatima, Nazare, Obidos, lunch in Nazare, and stops in between were all fun and memorable. Our tour guide was awesome, she was funny, informative, and inclusive. The incredible feeling I had during my visit to Fatima was spiritually strong and emotional, it was extremely special. The castle and town of Obidos was so classically medieval that you read about and see in movies, I could have wandered around there all day. But Nazare was the place, I've got to go back there. The town is crazy busy, the ocean is immense and right there in your face, the beach was huge, the food tasty. This was a very nice tour. I loved it. I have now taken a few Viator tours and they have all been on the mark - keep up the great work Viator.

Goncalo was a great tour guide. We went to Fatima, Batalha, Nazare, and Obidos. Goncalo was well-informed, personable, and tweaked the tour so everyone was able to get the maximum out of the tour. He shared the information on the places and Portugal en route to the sites and at the sites, allowing us time to explore the sites on our own, and made sure that we had enough time at each place. When it was time to break for lunch, he was happy to share restaurant suggestions. At Obidos we tried the ginja liquor which was quite good. He was happy to answer questions. Thank you for a good tour!

Our tour guide Thelma from Inside Portugal was great! She took time to explain the historical anecdotes in 2 languages English and Spanish since there were some people in our group who only understood Spanish. I highly recommend this tour. Just the right level of detail and freedom to roam around the sites as well.
