Day tour consisted of small group of tourists (7) and guide. We were driven around in comfortable Mercedes bus and we picked up on time from our hotel. The journey to Fatima takes less than 2 hrs and our guide used some of that time to give us necessary backgroud about the history of the region, geography and economy. But, the info was not excessive, just right-balanced. We have had some time to ourselves to enjoy Fatima, which was great as everyone had free hand to do things they wanted. After that, we have had very nice lunch together and shortly after set on way to Coimbra. Our guide used really nice spots for us to take pictures of the City as well as parked van in close proximity to landmarks. In overall, it was worth taking trip as it was informative and showed us two beautiful places stress free with plenty of information. Highly recommended venue.
Christian was an exceptional guide...very knowledgeable, accommodating, as well as entertaining too. In ten hours, we managed to travel to Fatima, visit the homes of the shepherds, attend the Palm Sunday mass, enjoy a very good buffet lunch as well as shop for a few souvenirs. We then visited Coimbra which was another beautiful destination and rich with history and culture. We also had time to buy the delicious Nata/Portuguese egg tarts to bring home with us. This is a tour which we can highly recommend as it was so much more than we expected.
Our guide John was very gentle and very informative. Coimbra was very interesting and Fátima is a very peaceful place. It was well organized and l strongly recommend this tour.
