Overview of your tour
This tour combines history and culture with spectacular natural landmarks. Explore the apparition site of Our Lady of Fatima, and discover why millions of pilgrims visit this location every year. There will be time to learn about the apparitions’ history and explore the shrine with your guide.
Next, we’ll head to a quintessential Portuguese village: Nazaré! A picturesque fishing town on the Silver Coast and one of Portugal’s most popular seaside resorts. You might even catch an infamous 80-ft wave if you’re lucky! After a traditional fish lunch and free time to shop for handcrafted products, we’ll continue to our final stop, the medieval town of Óbidos. Don’t forget your cameras on this trip, as Óbidos is a magical place you’ll want to capture. Walk along the cobblestone streets, and the walled confines of this town stuck in time. Next, we’ll try Ginjinha (sweet cherry liquor) served in a chocolate cup for a Portuguese end to the day. Lastly, we’ll take the scenic countryside route back to Lisbon and return around 6 PM.
Authentic, in-depth, and customizable, this tour is ideal for those who’d like to go beyond the tourist trails to see a piece of real Portugal.

We made two wonderful trips to Sintra and Fatima. Our guide and driver, Andre, led us professionally through places of incredible beauty. Andre speaks English very well, clearly and with a lot of humor. He also has extensive knowledge of History, Geography and Art. The trips were a real delight thanks to Andre. We will happily return to Lisbon and call on the services of our guide, Andre, for new trips.
Thanks to the whole team and Andrei, our guide, in particular for the wonderful and memorable tour. It was well planned and well executed. Highly recommended!
