Daniel was an amazing guide! He provided a lot of information on things related to the tour and the places visited. You get to see the shepherds houses and get some insight on how life was back then. You get free time (almost 2 hours) to spend at the Sanctuary; you can attend mass, buy candles, get holy water from the fountain, eat, etc. After that time you will be picked up by your guide and taken back to Lisbon. Wonderful experience, definitely recommend for those who want to dedicate the visit fully to Fatima, as apparently some full-day tours will spend more time in other towns. P.S. Be considerate of your guide and be on time! They let you know at what time you will be picked up and exactly where. Be respectful and do not bring luggage with you (a personal bag/back pack is ok) as the van is prepared for people only.

Ricardo was a great guide! He picked us up and explained to us everything we were seeing when leaving Lisbon to go to Fatima. All the way he told us curiosities and the story of the little shepherds and the virgin.

Very punctual at the pick-up time at the beginning of the tour, our excellent guide told us very nice information about the excursion, the trip was super entertaining, I recommend it 100%

Our guide and driver Ricardo EXCELLENT! His knowledge and narration about the place to visit was entertaining, interesting and super helpful. Committed to his work.

Cool Tours did a nice job and the guide was knowledgeable and informative. However some of communication with get your guide was not the best.
