This shore excursion left later than usual due to our ship's late arrival. Much fuss had occurred between the broker "Get Your Guide" and the vendor "Inside Lisbon" about geting our full tour starting at 10:30AM. The two guide-drivers of our two vans of eight ( Joao and Joao) took responsibility to give us a full day despite warnngs from their dispatchers about being out later than expected in Lisbon. Our day started with Fatima with stop at a tourist store ( pre arranged "rest stop" ) .Luckily we arrived for the noon Mass in the Apparition chapel. Some of us received communion at Fatima! WE had an hour of free time which all 16 found adeqaute. This is a very large campus. Some made an effort to see all three chapels/basilicas. Some enjoyed the religious goods store behind the apparitions chapel for their shopping, leaving their money at the shrine and not the tourist store. The afternoon in Lisbon was fantastic, many treats and wonderful stops. No room in short review.

Fantastic tour! Our guide Peter was so knowledgable and took us through back streets and places we would never have discovered on our own. Our guide knew the history of Lisbon and Portugal inside out! It was a small group and very Covid-friendly. Our first time using electric bikes which are really fun once you get the hang of it.

The best travel guide forever is Martin. I would do the tour with Martin again at any time

A lovely ride on a beautiful day with a friendly and courteous driver

Good tour. It combines sightseeing, history and exercise.
