What people are saying about Fatima
We were lucky enough to have a super sunny day for our tour! Joana was a lovely guide, attentive and informative. We really enjoyed our trip and were comfortable the entire time. Thank you!
We had a wonderful time on this tour. I think that trying to see 4 important sites in one day is perhaps a bit ambitious, but we thoroughly enjoyed the brief historical crash course we got at each site. And our tour guide Raquel was very knowledgeable and approachable!
This tour is great for seeing three different locales outside of Lisbon--an amazing Catholic pilgrimage site, an ocean town where the ocean creates the largest waves in the world, and a charming hill town. In fact, I'd been on this very tour before and liked it so much that I booked it again with a friend who had not been to Portugal. The two of us were the only passengers along with our guide John, who was an excellent driver and a great tour guide. He knew all the details of the areas we visited, in addition to Lisbon. He was very personable and spoke fluent English.
We are a family of four, and were so glad we booked this tour. Our tour guide was so informative, funny person, and most of all very kind Mr. Andre Feldman, He made sure our tour is relaxing, enjoyable and memorable. No rush at all, we really had the best time here in Lisbon. This tour is highly recommended. Thank You So Much Lisbon Native Tours for such effecient and reliable tour.
(November 26, 2018 Tour) - Our family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed this tour, thanks to our amazing tour guide Andre. He is the best! Andre picked us up from our Lisbon accommodation at 8AM with a van that comfortably fit 8 people in total. We were able to attend mass in Fatima, have fantastic seafood and see giant waves in Nazare, make a quick stop in beautiful Sao Martinho do Porto, and end our tour in the most charming medieval town of Obidos. This tour covers it all! We learned so much about the history and culture of Portugal. Andre is patient, passionate and knowledgeable. He speaks English (and other languages) very well. We had no difficulty understanding and communicating with him. Our family cannot say enough good things about him. We highly recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a genuine Portuguese trip. We will definitely book with this company again if we ever come back to Lisbon. Thank you, Andre! Obrigado!
