What people are saying about Santarém District

This was an incredible experience! Fatima was beautiful (had time to explore the square, cathedral, and experience an outdoors service). Obidos is a gorgeous fortress with tons of shops. Batalha is a stunning Cathedral (however unfinished). Finally Nazaré has an amazing beach with stunning views. Overall the tour guide/driver did a wonderful job giving brief overview about every individual place with a lovely experience of trying Ginjinha. Since the day is so heavily packed, realistically you only receive approximately 1hr per destination. This is worthwhile doing if you have limited time to explore Portugal and want to experience more than 1 individual city. Definitely would prefer extra time at each individual place; however, time is limited!

It rained a lot but our guide kept our spirits up and we had a wonderful time I all 4 places we visited. In my opinion, you can take Nazare off the tour. Fatima, Batalha and Obidos were great!

Louish is a knowledgeable patient guider gave us a lot of information about history, culture and nature, entire trip is stress free!

Such a wonderful experience! Pedro was a knowledgable, fun guide. Small group tours like this is always better for me.

The tour was okay. The tour guide was very nice. It was worth it. Value for money!
