Your first stop will be the extraordinary town of Fátima, where an apparition of the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared before 3 children every month between May 1917 and October 1917. Now one of the major shrines of the Catholic faith, the complex contains the tombs of 2 of the young shepherd children, the crown of the Virgin in the Chapel of the Apparitions, and a section of the Berlin Wall (said to be a tribute to God’s part in the fall of communism) . Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant (own expense) far from the tourist crowds, and get a taste for authentic Portuguese food.

Finally, tour the picturesque town of Óbidos, taken from the Muslims in 1148. Forming part of the dowry of numerous Portuguese queens, Óbidos maintains its medieval feel inside the old city walls, with cobblestone streets and flower-bedecked houses.

Carolina our guide was excellent, her English was impeccable, her knowledge of the history of not only Portugal but the world (made my dad say she could be a lecturer with her English and knowledge). My dad is not easily impressed but Carolina impressed him. Carolina was a good driver and tour guide. She went all out to ensure we were all comfortable. She was very caring towards us and kept check we were all right and tailor everything to everyone’s need. The places we visited was worth it. Everyone needs to do this tour if nothing else while in Lisbon.

My father and I had a perfect day with Rui. He was extremely kind and polite to us, in addition to offering us a tour rich in information about the places we visited. The day paid off well, with a nice morning walk in Fátima, a delicious lunch in Nazaré and ending in Óbidos with the Christmas market.

The tour was wonderful all along the way, and everything went smooth. It is extremely well organized. Our guide Tania is friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable. She provided us with all the important details about the places we visited. I highly recommend this tour.

I’m so glad I did this tour! Tanya was an amazing guide. The amount of time in each location was just enough, and all were very worthwhile places to go. I highly recommend going on this tour if you’re in Lisbon and want to travel outside the city.

I enjoyed the tour. Our guide Tania was excellent. She provided interesting information about each site as well as information about other things such as the cork trees and the PamAm sign.
