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.

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.

I can not express to everyone how great an experience this was. Andre was an incredible guide and driver who took us everywhere the company offered and more. He shared the history, geography and social aspects of the tour and took us to his favorite view points overlooking the coast. He was so amazing and he made the tour a once in a life time experience. There were only 7 of us and we all felt like family when he was done. He spoke to some of us in English but made sure the french speaking people got the same information. While we enjoyed Fatima, and Nazare we really enjoyed Obidos. What an incredible undiscovered treasure.If we ever go back we will be sure to spend a few days in Obidos. Thanks again Andre and keep on tour guiding.

Another outstanding tour guide in Matthew. He communicated well with our group which was 3 Americans and 3 Chinese 2 of which did not understand English. Matthew insured everyone was included his tour dialogue and made certain the group was inclusive. I found this to be extraordinary particularly since this tour does require a lot of driving which could have but did not mean long stretches of silence. The discussions were both educational and enjoyable. These locations are a must see and fit well together. The lunch in Nazare at Rosa Dos Ventos was fantastic.

We had an amazing day with Vlad our very expert guide. The town of Batalha was added to the list. Vlad was very knowledgeable about every aspect of Portugal history in general and of every town or sanctuary we visited. For lunch he brought us to Rosa dos Ventos in Nazaré where Raimundo and his staff provided an authentic and fresh Portuguese menu complete with a taste of guija!

We had a great day. Loved the whole experience. Appreciated our time in Fatima especially stopping to purchase religious articles prior to going to the Fatima site so would be able to get them blessed. I appreciated the religious experience. The monastery we visited is definetly a wow experience. Never expected such a huge edifice. This is a UNESCO Heritage site. Nazaire was beautiful. Eating a typical meal together was a fun and cultural experience. Nazaire is a lovely seaside town and we were able to enjoy it from both the beath and the cliffs. Great views. We met the sweetest elderly Portugese lady in her regional costume and selling nuts and dried fruit. If you take this trip I hope you get to meet Caroline at her stand with her beautiful smile. The walled medieval village was a look into the past. Great that this site is preserved as a UNESCO Heriage site. These small tours are definetly the way the way to tour. Much more enjoyable than the huge bus tours. The seven of us on the tour got along great and had a wonderful time together. Our guide for the day was knowledgeable, polite and looked after all our needs. He made sure everyone was involved and enjoying the experience. I wholely. incourage you to take your tour with this company.
