What people are saying about Fátima
Our guide Nelson was extremely knowledgeable historically accurate sharing many details of the Fatima experience. His presentation demonstrated a true love for making sure his clients understood the truth of what he children of Fatima experienced. And what the people of this region experienced during the several years of the apparitions
Our tour guide made this trip brilliant. We were 2 groups with different nationalities he took time to explain everything to everybody. He was very enthusiastic and knew a lot about all the places we visited. Obidos was the most beautiful - Fatima was very peaceful and I also enjoyed visiting the houses where the 3 kids lived
Good day trip and we had a great guide but needed more time in Obidos which was cut short by time spend in Nazare. Our guide Victor was informative, professional and knew all the shortcuts to help make our Fatima stop outstanding. Recommend doing only 2-3 locations in one day.
Our tour guide was prompt, vehicle was excellent. Tour was organized and enjoyable. Guide allowed for our groups interest. His speaking manner was enjoyable to listen to. Tour was completed in a relaxed and timely manner. Company responded promptly to my emails.
Miguel L. Pereiro is a great asset to your company. He is courteous and very knowledgeable. We even told him he should be a history professor. He was awesome. He shows he enjoys his job and he loves people.
