This is such a fantastic option for anyone wanting to get to Fatima and back in a timely manner and with only a short time to spare. The approx. 4.5-5 hour round trip is amazing. Tiago, our driver and guide was fantastic, very accommodating, knowledgeable and informative and friendly too. Wi-fi on the vehicle was superb - faster than I have back home in SA !!! This tour is focussed only on Fatima and for those wanting to go to other nearby places then you should do the full day tour instead. A very comfortable journey coupled with the being on that hallowed ground in Fatima make for a very fulfilling experience overall. Left in the morning on a weekday so made it well in time for a visit to the factory where they make all the memorabilia, then to the homes of Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta and finally on to the shrine to attend Mass have some snacks and head back to Lisbon. Definitely something worth doing when visiting Lisbon.
Hugo is a charmer! He is most knowledgeable with an engaging personality. He graciously adjusted the tour to accommodate our schedule. His English is perfect. He also arrangd executive parking which made the walk to the shrine effortless. The car was lovely-clean, comfortable and fast. Thank you, Hugo!
Great trip at an affordable price. For about the same price as a group tour we had a personalized historical perspective of Lisbon, Portugal and Fatima. Not rushed we had plenty of time to walk through Fatimas and even caught part of a mass. He gave us a surprise visiting the home St. Jacinta and year old cousin. If you only have a couple of days in Portugal this is a great option.
We were so satisfied with our tour guide Ricardo, he is very entertaining and takes care of his client very well. no dull moment with him from the time we step inside the car up to the time we came back . he even recommended and brought us to the best restaurant along the river. Speaks very well and has a good sense of humor. Too bad, that when we requested him for our tour the following days he was not allowed by his company particularly his boss Paulo. : . I will strongly recommend to take Ricardo as the guide. - Anna Baloro Philippines
