What To Expect

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.

Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima

Get comfortable in an air-conditioned vehicle as you start your journey toward the town of Fátima, a once-sleepy rural village that became an important pilgrimage site when three shepherd children reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1917. Visit the Sanctuary of Fatima, a basilica that honors the apparition and attracts millions of Catholic pilgrims every year who go to pay their respects to the shrine

Long day but good value for information and areas covered!
I highly recommend this smaller tour as opposed to the larger tours as it is much more personal and you get to interact more with your tour mates.
If you have limited time and want to visit several ‘must see’ sites leaving from Lisbon, this all day tour is for you.

Full day of discovery
Guido_L, Feb 2023
For me was Fatima for the special meaning as a catholic. For my friend it was Nazaré due to the sea and the food
Great guide. Could skip Fatima
Clayton_R, Feb 2023
It’s hard to please everyone. Fatima is a 20th century building and center of pilgrimage. The monastery is a 14th century church that is absolutely amazing. Naveres is super cool & beautiful. Ólvido is my vibe - medieval. But Our guide, Ophelie, showed it all to us. She was attentive, intelligent, and personable. We could speak in Spanish or French with her.

The tour was very nice. Our guide was Jorge who was very pariente and kind to all of us, he answered every question and told us about all the places we visited. We had more than enough time to enjoy Fatima where we were even able to assist the Mass, also we had a lot of time to explore Óbidos.
Lovely Trip, but slightly marred
Stephanie_L, Jan 2023
We enjoyed our small-group trip to Fatima, Nazare and Obidos. The only thing that marred the experience for us, was due partly to a fault of our own. My family of four (including my husband, young daughter and mother), arrived late to the meeting point at Hard Rock Cafe. Despite our every effort to arrive early (and we truly did our best), we arrived late due to some navigational issues. It was the helpful staff who contacted me through WhatsApp, as well as our tour guide who finagled a different location for us to meet, who helped us to still take part on this trip. Thankfully, the other guests were very understanding, and we were still able to make up the time we lost. The aspect that marred the experience for us, is that the tour guide kept harping on our tardiness throughout the day, making snide jokes at each meeting point that we shouldn't be late, or that we owed it to the other guests that we were late. I understand a few digs in the beginning, but it began to wear on us that he kept making these jokes in the 9 hours we were together, each time the whole group separated to explore the different sights and reconvened (especially as we were not late to any of these). It got to the point where at the end of the day, on our return to Lisbon, he cracked another one of these jokes and a fellow guest told him that "the joke had gotten old". Otherwise, the experience was really nice. It was especially important for my mother to visit Fatima, and she was able to spend a decent amount of time going into the various chapels on the site. Nazare was interesting to see, and while it was a rainy day, we were blessed to have a moment of calm and sunlight as we peered out into the ocean and cliffs. The highlight of the trip was Obidos, the walled city. We were able to climb on the wall and enter the heart of the city this way. It was a wonderful experience, and we also appreciated our first taste of ginjinha! Our guide was very knowledgeable and had an impressive mastery of English, French and Spanish. We would have appreciated less ribbing on our tardiness as we were already distressed about our late arrival and didn't need the extra guilt.
Fatima, Nazare and Obidos

Seeing the beach in Nazaré from above left me speechless. The driver Luis was the most knowledgeable guide we've ever had, he not only managed to inform us about everything but also to bond with us.

Love Nazare experience and Fatima church . The tour person Marilia was excellent and service oriented.
Enjoyable and fantastic insights!
Srini_T, Jan 2023
We were 2 families with kids and were looking for something that makes the logistics easy and doable without feeling overwhelmed. The logistics, pace and the insights offered were great and never did we feel pressured nor bored. And so we indeed thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Lillian our guide was fantastic and knowledgeable and shared many insights about the Portuguese culture that were useful and made the trip engaging . Highly recommend!!
A good tour with many little stops
Chinglan_L, Jan 2023
This is a great tour that covers many places. Really enjoyed Nazaré and Obidos. Personally, I feel there should be more time allocated to those 2 stops.

4 unique towns filled with a rich history
Cathy_R, Dec 2022
Luis was a fantastic guide, filled with local knowledge and you did not feel rushed even with a packed agenda. This is a long day but we’ll worth it if you want to see as much as possible.
Very spiritual. But next...
Urmila_G, Dec 2022
Very spiritual. But next time tell us that it is a religious holiday. It was very crowded. Driver spoke to Spanish couple more than the group.
