Capture the historical charm of four rural, Portuguese towns on a full-day guided tour of Óbidos, Fátima, Nazaré and Batalha from Lisbon. Alongside your expert guide, you’ll discover Óbidos’ fascinating medieval heritage and relish a delicious lunch in the small fishing town of Nazaré. Explore the Monastery of Santa Maria d'Alcobaça and Batalha Monastery, both UNESCO World Heritage-listed landmarks. During a visit to Fátima, you’ll wander through the Sanctuary of Fátima and see one of the world’s most famous Christian pilgrimage sites.
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.
A lovely day in Portugal, with a memorable stop in Obidos, which was delightful. The seaside lunch was enjoyable in the well organised restaurant. The seafood was tasty, and the company was great.

This was the greatest tour I have every taken. The city of Obidos was small, charming and so heartwarming. Nazare' was beautiful too. Fatima was surreal. It was amazing to walk there where Our Lady has appeared. It was a very quiet and peacefully serene place. Perfect place to pray and reflect. Definitely would recommend this tour.
A well-organised tour. Tour guide, Louisa, was very knowledgable. She basically spoke very clearly. However, the constant switch from Portuguese to English sometimes was hard to follow.
We chose the lunch option. Food was of reasonable quality. However, given the enough time for lunch, it might be unnecessary to choose this option. A quick lunch might have left us more time to explore Nazare a little bit.
Wonderful tour of the four sites. However, we only had an hour to visit Fatima...need at least two to do it justice. Great guide and tour, otherwise. Great lunch!
Perfect trip, perfect tour guide, and perfect driver
It was great but I wish we had more time in Fatima. I will have to return to really experience the place. Our guide Lydia was very good, very informative. The bus ride was very comfortable also. Highly recommend this tour.
Tour and lunch were excellent.
I like all the planning even though I hesitated at the beginning as I don't like to be in guided groups but the day, the trip, the places and the guide were all great... Portugal and the Portuguese are wonderful polite friendly and so welcoming... I booked my trip for August 2017..
Excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable!!!
This is an amazing tour, you will be taken to some beautiful places and get to experience the real 'Portugal'.
Obidos - is a beautiful town with such pretty buildings, lots of lovely cafes and lots of history.
Nazare - a lovely seaside town, I did not take the 'lunch' option when booking and this allowed me to spend an hour on the beach enjoying the spectacular scenery.
Fatima - this is such a special place, very glad I got to go there.
- This tour is so well organized, adequate time is allowed at each location.
- Our guide was lovely and she provided a lot of valuable information.
- Highly recommend this tour.
