It was a great experience and the only way to visit many places in one day.The organization was perfect.Bernard, the driver was at the hotel door at time and we traveled in complete safety in all the places. The car was a good one, clean and new and the driver very polite and helpfull.
We left on time and visited all the places planned.The driver didnt rush us and he recomanded all the time how long we would need in each place.In return he agreed to let us in Rossio Square and not at the hotel.It was a pleasant experience.We are very pleased with the organization of VIATOR and recommend this trip.It was easy to book and pay. Thank you VIATOR.

We were a group of 14 persons booked in 2 minivans. Our English tour guides were Eduardo and Bernardo. They were very friendly, knowledgeable, hard-working, polite, and patient. With their excellent guidance, the tour was very interesting and enjoyable from the beginning to the end. The lunch was very good with good foods, drinks, beer, wine, coffee included. Fatima is a very popular and famous place, but other places mentioned in the tour are also very interesting and amazing with knowledgeable guidance from our tour guides.

We had a wonderful, full day with our guide Joaquim, who picked us up at our hotel in Lisbon at 9am. We didn't return home until 8pm. That's two or three hours later than normal but Joaquim was a gracious, knowledgeable host who didn't rush us and tailored the tour according to our interests. Normally this tour stops at Fatima first, but Joaquim wisely recommended we tour Obidos first, a wonderful, medieval city with a picturesque stone wall surrounding it. After a long and interesting lunch we visited the Batalha Monastery, where we took our time seeing and learning as much as we could. It wasn't until late afternoon/early evening that we got to Fatima. But the timing was perfect the heat of the day was over and getting a feel for this special place seemed natural. There was a Mass going on in the main church when we arrived so we were unable at first to visit the tombs of the three children who witnessed the apparitions. But Joaquim gave us plenty of time to walk around and pray, and afterwards and after the Mass he said we should go back into the church and spend some time visiting the tombs two of the children are now saints in the Catholic church. This is a great tour and way to learn more about Portugal outside of the big cities regardless of your religious background or tendencies. Recommended.

Wonderful day tour as we had a private vehicle and got to choose our tour. Our drive/tour guide Tony was well versed and informative. He went out off his way to show us more and pleased us constantly. Fatima was just an awesome experience, and one of our members got to do the reading at mass made her day Will do it all over again.

It was a very amazing private tour with Paulo Realista, he is a funny guy with a lot of knowledge about this tour, he brought us to many different places.He joined candle procession with us in Fatima until late night.
He is the best tour leader.

Our driver and guide, Eduardo, was excellent. He was very attentive to our needs stamina having arrived from the US on an early morning flight. He was extremely knowledgable of all sites visited, especially Fatima. He chose an excellent local restaurant for us to enjoy traditional Portuguese food and wine for our lunch. I highly recommend this tour, and would ask for our guide again when visiting Portugal.

The tour was extremely well managed from the time i booked it to the time we were dropped back to the hotel. Our driver/guide Joao was extremely knowledgeable and humourous. He spoke very good English and was able to answer every question posed to him. The restaurant recommended by him turned out to be extremely good. The food and drinks were delicious and we even ended up receiving a free bottle of 'Aguardent' from the kind owner! I highly recommend this tour to others who may want to do it.

The experience exceeded expectations. Our guide was extremely informative and knowledgeable and went the extra mile to share his wisdom of the history of Portugal. It was a great experience from start to finish.

What a great tour. A must for any traveler that hasn't been to Fatima, Batalha, Obidos. Our Driver was wonderful and was able to get us close to the exhibits.

Great tour, a bit long in my opinion, but very good. If you are a catholic, Fátima is a must, if you are not, it is also worth your time. The monastery of Batalha is wonderful, huge and reminds you of the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. The monastery of Alcobaça is also nice, but after seeing the one in Batalha, this one is less impressive. I would recommend dropping the visit to Alcobaça in favor of a little more time in Óbidos, which is a very nice medieval town. Edoardo, our guide, was very professional and dedicated. He explained everything in a combination of Spanish, Portuguese and English.

We fell in love with Portugal because of this tour! We were picked-up from our hotel on time by our driver and guide, Joseph, who was a fine gentleman and very informative. He allowed us to do some shopping and still was able to take us to all the places in our itinerary. Highly recommend this!

This tour was great and you can see many historical sites in detail within one day. We really appreciate our guide, John, who provided excellent service and walked through all the sites with explanation. I will say this private tour for our group of 4 was just wonderful and exceeds our expectation.

This was a first class tour. From pick-up at 9am from our hotel to drop-off at 8.30pm our driver/guide Eduardo could not have been more professional, pleasant and informative and made this trip an excellent experience. His knowledge of all 4 places was very impressive and we would have missed a lot without his guidance. Very comfortable car also.

We enjoyed the tour although if you really want to make it to Fatima the most important stop if you're taking the tour for religious reasons and experience the mass, the rosary, and the candlelight procession and squeeze in dinner, then I would drop one of the stops from the itinerary or shorten the length of the stop at Obidos - it is cool medieval town and the first stop so you could easily burn a lot of time there and not have time for the rest of the itinerary.

Joseph, our driver, spoke English well and was knowledgeable. I remember he said he was history or geography teacher at one point. He took pictures for us as well, but we wish he would give the four of us a little more time to actually get into position and pose. He introduced us to our favorite new food item during our 7 country tour of Europe - Açorda de Marisco. Overall, very friendly and a fine gentleman - he helped us carry a heavy backpack when we were busy with the kids.

After the end of the day, even after getting back to Lisbon at close to midnight, he went out of his way to take point out a few of the restaurants that he recommended we try in Lisbon.

Lunch was not worth it- book your own lunch. The guide was good, not exceptional. Knew his information.

Would not recommend this tour. Lots of driving through uninteresting locations. Our guide for the day understood English and spoke English, but was clearly not comfortable in telling about the areas we visited. He did take us to a wonderful local place for lunch.

Our guide didnt give that much information of the places that we visited. He only pointed the places of interest and left and told us the hour to meet. He took us to a place to eat that wasnt good in fatima, didnt accept credit card. This was more like a driver to the places not a tour.

The Tour guide didnt take us to Alcobaca, We were rushed the entire time and didnt have enough time in some of the places. The restaurant that was included with the tour was horrible!!! never again

This tour was less than ideal, but probably not the fault of our guide. He showed up at our hotel at the right time but his paperwork was for a party of four by another name so there was lots of confusion. Then we realized that although his paperwork had the incorrect name and number of passengers, the Reference Number on his paperwork was the same as on our reservation. I do not know what language the actual named party on his paperwork had requested. He was somewhat flustered as were we. However he said he would take us on the tour, which he did. His English was not what I'd hoped so we did not communicate easily. He did try though. But I was disappointed and do not feel we got our money's worth.
