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.

Our guide happens to be a college history major so we enjoyed his narration on the historical backgrounds. He was also very attentive. We saw a few sights for the 1-day tour. Highly Recommended!

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide was informative but not overwhelming. We enjoyed each of the stops, but wish we had a little more time in Fatima. Obidos is a charming, beautiful walled city. Thoroughly enjoyed our day!

Great tour. The only thing we wish was to have a little more time at Fatima. However, we still were very pleased overall. This tour brought us to 3 completely different places in Portugal. I was only in Portugal for 2 nights and I felt, because of this tour, I really made the most of my first trip to the country. The car we rode in was also very clean and comfortable! I recommend this trip!

This was such a fun tour. I loved the small group experience and all the other tourists were so much fun to be with for the day. Sammy was an awesome tour guide and knew so much about the places through the French Riviera. Highly recommend this tour!

An excellent tour and a chance to see beyond the city of Lisbon which we were visiting for only a few days. Booked tour over the internet before we left home and, as per instructions, we arrived at the meeting point 15 minutes ahead of time on the appointed day. A crowd soon gathered and by 9 a.m. tour guides in minivans arrived to pick up their respective groups. Our group was six people only and our guide Joao Correia was certainly very knowledgeable, extremely pleasant and friendly plus he did a excellent job of chauffeuring. Sufficient time was spent in each place, we were not rushed and I can highly recommend this small-group day tour. As in Lisbon, comfortable footwear is advised especially for the cobbled streets of Obidos.

Fatima was just mind blowing. so beautiful, so majestic.... so spiritual - just gorgeous.
Excellent tour. Excellent tour company. Excellent tour guide Edgar. Fabulous small group of 8 as stated on the ad which was so great as we were never waiting for the late comers to turn up to be able to move on! Such a refreshing change from the big tour bus companies. Will definitely travel with this particular tour company again when I return to Lisbon!
