Pedro was an excellent driver and guide. We arrived in time for Mass and had time for visiting the Cathedral before an excellent lunch. We visited the Village of the 3 children and visited the University as advertised. Wear shoes with a good grip for steep, slippery streets in the charming town!

My husband and I were lucky to take that tour with Andre, who is an excellent guide: intelligent and charismatic. We admired the Holy Mass in Fatima it was Sunday and fell in love with Coimbra. We've learned a lot about history of Portugal/ Small group, minivan and a delicious lunch contributed to the success of the tour.

We had an amaizing trip with Pedro, Miguel and Daniel. They were very knowledgeable. The trip was moulded to our main interests, we were extremely lucky to be the only tourists with our 3 guides due to it being off season but they were friendly and showed interest. We had a great day with them and me and my husband loved our lunch in Coimbra.

If you are a Catholic, then visiting Fatima, the place where the children prayed, and where they lived are very emotional and worth the trip. Although it was awesome to be able to attend mass, it was a bit rushed, by that I mean, there was no time to see anything else if you attend mass, which was important to me. Coimbra is a nice city, but a bit run down. The tour didn't allow for time to visit the famous library at the university, but I knew that. The food for lunch was good. Andre, our tour guide was kind, patient and very helpful, specially to a lady who had difficulty walking. The tour left and arrived on time. I would recommend it.

The trip was the best experience I had in Portugal - well worth it. Pedro was a most perfect guide. Highly skilled in several languages, well educated, outspoken, helpful and competent. I could not have better spent that day! The included lunch was of great quality, tickets to university attractions were even included, and everything went perfect. Thank you Pedro!

We booked this tour BECAUSE it said we would be at Fatima in time for Mass. I even expressed how important that was to me after completing the 800KM walk on the Camino de Santiago. It did not happen and for no reason except it was not really the plan. The rest of the tour was literally a 'drive-by' walking tour of Coimbra. Churches, the University, Monastery all on the tour but not included in the price OR the time alotted! Very disappointed! If all you want is a fly by on Fatima and Coimbra, GREAT!
