Complete and interesting tour

Very nice tour.Times adapted to our needs without rushing, in Fatima we could also attend Mass.Perhaps it would have been nicer to have lunch in Nazaré, instead of Batalha where there was not much choice and maybe, considering the cost of the tour, it could include lunch. Perhaps through the hotel we could have done the same tour at a lower cost.

Exceptional guide, Riccardo, well prepared, we spent a busy day but full of news and wonderful places. Riccardo was fundamental for everything, advice and explanations ... recommended ....

We just got back from this excursion, it was great, we had a great time with our guide Nidia. Highly recommended !!!

Our guide, Miguel, was excellent and so was our driver, Andre. Would highly recommend both of them.

It is a tour that you can go to your time without trouble and is highly valued in large people.
