Why Travelers Choose This Tour

See four charming and historical towns on this tour that includes all entrance fees and upgrade for a nice restaurant lunch. You'll learn lots about the region and have some free time at the famous Fatima pilgrimage site.

After hotel pickup in Lisbon, you’ll greet your guide and hop into your air-conditioned coach. On arrival in Óbidos — a walled medieval town replete with maze-like streets and historical houses — you’ll have free time to enjoy the town's Gothic architecture.

Then, either unwind at a café or head to one of the abundant wine shops to taste a classic Ginja liqueur. Continue in your coach to Alcobaça to see the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Monastery of Santa Maria d'Alcobaça, the largest gothic monastery in Portugal.

Afterward, take a break for lunch in Nazaré — a quaint fishing village — and enjoy classic Portuguese dishes before exploring the popular Portuguese vacation spot. Here, you’ll absorb panoramic views of Portugal’s rugged Atlantic coastline and capture numerous photographs.

Head next to the village of Batalha, home to the UNESCO-listed Batalha Monastery; step inside this classic gothic building and admire its elegant design and ornate stained-glass windows.

Your last highlight is a visit to Fátima, famous for the 1917 sighting of the Virgin Mary by three agrarian children. Every year, Fátima plays host to millions of Christian pilgrims who pay homage at the Sanctuary of Fátima, also known as Our Lady of Fátima (Nossa Senhora de Fátima). You’ll have the opportunity to explore the basilica and shrine that honors the Virgin Mary independently.

We were very disappointed with this tour. Firstly it implied a smaller group than it was. Instead of just an English group we were combined with a French Spanish and Portuguesas group. The tour guide spent her time focussed on the Portuguese speaking group and when walking us to a site did not take time to ensure everyone was able to see where she was going. At one stop even though she counted us twice she almost left one tourist behind. Finally, because of the lack of efficiency by the company we did not leave at 9:00 and therefore we were rushed through the sites in order to get back at the scheduled time. While I would recommend seeing these places I would definitely look for a different tour company.

This was a great way to visit these charming towns. Although it was raining when we visited Obidos, it was a beauitful village!
Fatima was awesome! Try to get the schedule of masses ahead of time so that you can incorporate it into your tour.
All lovely and beautiful places to see!

I like everything of this tour. The old castles, churchs, beautiful seaside town Nazare.

A little clunky but you do actually go to 5 locations in one day. It's a lot but it means that you basically only get an hour or so at each location.

An excellent way to spend a day. The tour covers a lot of ground but it was unhurried.

Let me first say that the towns visited on this tour are exceptional and well worth taking. The included meal we paid for was excellent.

I have taken over twenty tours with Viator and their local providers have always been excellent. This tour was the exception. Our tour guide Isabel was terrible. I have been on many trips that were bi-lingual and I do not mind that. But, Isabel could barely be heard or understood. She spoke in a monotone and gave little in the way of directions or suggestions. When asked a question she would either not answer or be very rude in answering. On most other tours I have taken, the tour guide would make an effort to get brochures of the site and hand out one to each person. This could have easily been done in Fatima for instance. Even if she didn't get the brochures, she could have pointed out the information office which we discovered a half hour later. Instead she just took us to the main plaza and said she would meet us back at the bus in one hour. This is just one example at one of 5 towns on the tour. I have never written a bad review on a guide but I would not want others to have our same experience. It was as if she did not want to be doing the trip that day.

One other concern was the driver of the bus could not figure out how to get the condensation off of the inside of the windshield. He spent most of the first six hours wiping the windshield with his hand while driving. This is a real safety issue. He seemed to figure it out on the trip back to Lisbon.

I also do not feel that dropping us off four blocks from our hotel pick up point, in the rain, is a proper way to end the trip.

I emailed the local tour director after the trip and she quickly responded. She had no excuse for the tour guide but did indicate that this was the first time that the driver had driven this bus and was not aware how to run the AC unit. This company was very good pre trip in regards to communication. It just all fell apart the day of the trip.

The tour was well arranged and efficiently covered 5 places: Óbidos, Alcobaça, Nazaré, Batalha and Fátima. It's a good choice if you only have a short stay in Lisbon.

Perfect experience, to visit all those cities,with different characteristics!The only thing that it wasn't so nice is that we was a very big group and that makes the think a little bid difficult.
