Great tour with the right amount of history and culture blended in with a medieval town and beach area! One of my highlights from trip to LISBON! Tania, our guide, was EXCELLENT! She went out of her way to involve EVERYONE! And she was knowledgeable and went out of her way to ensure that we all had a great time! Super Tour!

This was absolutely fantastic and it was amazing because at Fatima we got to see mask because it was Sunday which I didn’t expect. I would highly recommend doing this to her on a Sunday so that you get the whole experience. The guide was wonderful

It was a lovely day to travel from Lisbon. Tania, our guide was terrific: welcoming to all, friendly, informative with just the right amount of talking points with details. A "just right" amount of time at each location.

Egor, the guide, was brilliant. Gave us lots of information. Went over and above to ensure we had a wonderful day.

Very organised and punctual. The tour guide knew all about the places. Good food.
