Daniel was an amazing guide! He provided a lot of information on things related to the tour and the places visited. You get to see the shepherds houses and get some insight on how life was back then. You get free time (almost 2 hours) to spend at the Sanctuary; you can attend mass, buy candles, get holy water from the fountain, eat, etc. After that time you will be picked up by your guide and taken back to Lisbon. Wonderful experience, definitely recommend for those who want to dedicate the visit fully to Fatima, as apparently some full-day tours will spend more time in other towns. P.S. Be considerate of your guide and be on time! They let you know at what time you will be picked up and exactly where. Be respectful and do not bring luggage with you (a personal bag/back pack is ok) as the van is prepared for people only.

The tour was well organised and ran like clockwork. We were able to experience the various sites without feeling rushed and had plenty of flexible time. Our guide Michaela was terrific and made the tour more enjoyable. About the only slight negative is the audio being hard to hear clearly if in the back seats of the vehicle.

A very spiritual experience!

Feel so blessed to have visited Fatima specially this year which marks the 100th anniversary of the her apparition to the three shepherds. The sanctuary is massive and beautiful. Our tour guide Ynez was very accomodating and answered all of the questions posed to her. This tour is highly recommended.
