Stroll around the grounds of the sanctuary on arrival to see monuments dedicated to the sightings of Mary in 1916 and 1917. Visit the Chapel of the Apparitions that marks the most precise spot where the sightings happened and admire the stone and marble Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary and the Most Holy Trinity Basilica, built in 2007.

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.

good excursion to take advantage of the day in Fatima. full-pack. The guide was very kind and willing. He explained everything very well. He has also left us time for prayer. It was also very exciting to visit the shepherds' houses in Ajustrel (go early in the morning to avoid the influx of tourists).

The tour was well organised and ran like clockwork. We were able to experience the various sites without feeling rushed and had plenty of flexible time. Our guide Michaela was terrific and made the tour more enjoyable. About the only slight negative is the audio being hard to hear clearly if in the back seats of the vehicle.
