What People Are Saying About Alcobaça
Amazing trip! I would highly recommend Fatima to the Catholics and to spend more time there. This trip only allowed us 2 hours of which most time was spent waiting for other passengers' shopping leaving less time for the Fatima sanctuary. Lessons learnt is to manage expectations of all passengers so that time is not wasted on waiting for others. Rest of other places such as Bathalha and Obidos are beautiful.
Why it was a great trip? We booked this tour - instant confirmation on GYG. We called the local operator - Reservas e Partidas - and found a very reliable guy, Duarte Azevedo Monteiro, who turned to be our guide. He confirmed the booking immediately; very punctual next day, knowledgeable, friendly, a safe driver and a very good English speaker. Fatima was impressive, Nazare pleasant, Batalha - peaceful and Obidos superb. During the day we discovered a beautiful country, stunning landscapes, nice people, good food and wine, funny and romantic stories, historical facts. Overall, a perfect day. Again, a big thanks to Duarte from his Romanian friends!
Maria is an absolutely great person for sharing her knowledge and get tourists familiar with the Portuguese history. Also a good driver :)
The tour was fabulous. We enjoyed all the sights and one extra was included as I requested the Alcobaca monastery. Julio was very accomodating, considerate of our group of eight. He suggested a wonderful restaurant and local specialties that made it extra special for us. A must do tour!o
Our guide, Edgar Rodrigues, of Lux Invicta was superb. He was knowledgeable, interesting, and accommodated our many questions. We learned so much, yet did not feel we had been subjected to a day-long lecture - his was not a dry delivery. He was so well versed, that when there were alternative theories of an event, he would give us both. It was a day well spent and a very good value. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in Unesco Monasteries. .
