We were given an introduction to the story of Fatima then left to explore on our own for a couple of hours. Group was also small so very informative.
The Greyline service was very professional and the tour guide Rosa was lovely! Rosa was so experienced, friendly, knowledgeable and very informative! The bus ride was smooth and comfortable. We had an incredible time, Fatima was beautiful :
It was everything I hoped it would be. So glad I used this tour.

First class tour. Bus picked us up and dropped us back to hotel. Tour guide and driver were excellent.
This tour is highly recommended! There are several good points I can enumerate:
1. Very convenient – pickup was prompt and directly from the hotel. Drop off was directly to the hotel as well.
2. Content – we went to Obidos, Alcobaca, Nazare, Batalha, and Fatima. This is a lot of places in one day. Our tour guide, Ana, gives remarkable information on the sites while on the bus and on the sites themselves.
3. Value for Money – for the number of sites, experience, and Portuguese history, this brings the most bang for your buck!
4. Free Time on the sites – there are some free time allocated for some sites.
A noteworthy point, if you are after visiting a specific site in detail, like in Fatima, this might not be the best tour for you. Because there is quite little time left for free roaming and exploring, you will quickly run out of time if you want to drill down into more details, or attend service, on the programmed sites.
It was excellent. The coach ride was comfortable and the guide was friendly. It was a lovely day !
Our tour guide, Vanessa, was a sophisticated guide. We not only learnt the history of Fatima, we were also enriched by her knowledgeable introduction in agriculture, culture and other aspects of the region and area wherever the coach passed by.
Although it was a very long day, the guide Ana was charming and humorous and gave us information in reasonable chunks that were easy to absorb. Great trip!
our trip was complete success,i love the food the service and the people,specially the fatima trip
Glad that I could spend some time at Fatima and going in the houses where Lucia, Juanita and Francisco lived was a great experience.

This was a heartwarming experience. Very interesting and full of history. Our tour guide was fantastic! She shared details of each visiting site. She gave us an understanding of what Fatima is all about. We both greatly appreciate the knowledge she shared. One person insisted that our guide speak English only. The guide politely explained that she must speak in the languages everyone understands. Congratulations to her for staying calm and professional.
The tour director was terrific which made for a great trip. Very friendly and professional at the same time. Thank you.
Not far out of Lisbon so no long bus drive. VERY crowded at Fatima though. But we did have time to go to all the sights on campus if you were determined. Probably not enough time to go to a mass though and see all the sights.
We enjoyed our visit at Fatima the guide was knowledgeable and gave us a good history account before we arrived. The minibus was very comfortable and the free time we had to visit was good though it was a little short
The tour was very good and prompt and our guide very helpful.
The guide was great! For me 1 hour and 30 minutes would have been enough in Fatima. It was great to see.
Joanna was our tour guide and she was good. It was hard because she had to speak in 3 languages but she did a nice job. We had plenty of time to walk around Fatima to see the Sanctuary. I enjoyed the tour.
The tour itself was satisfactory--good guide, good trip, plenty of time for the site. However, the site itself is terribly commercialized, so if one is looking for a spiritual experience, it's most likely not here.
