Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima, Rua de Rainha Santa Isabel 26, Fatima 2495-424 Portugal

Get comfortable in an air-conditioned vehicle as you start your journey toward the town of Fátima, a once-sleepy rural village that became an important pilgrimage site when three shepherd children reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1917. Visit the Sanctuary of Fatima, a basilica that honors the apparition and attracts millions of Catholic pilgrims every year who go to pay their respects to the shrine

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Batalha Monastery, Largo Infante Dom Henrique 2440, Batalha 2440-484 Portugal

Next, visit the 14th-century Batalha Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that illustrates the rich artistic heritage of the late 1300s. Discover the impressive royal burial site at the basilica’s Founder’s Chapel, where King João I, Queen Philippa of Lancaster and their son Prince Henry the Navigator were buried.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Praia da Nazare, Nazare Portugal

Take a short break for lunch (own expense) in Nazaré, a quaint fishing town famous for its variety of restaurants and cafes. A popular summer retreat for the Portuguese, the village offers an interesting insight into local life. Short stop at the Nazaré cliffs to see the ocean views

Duration: 2 hours

Pass By: Baia de Sao Martinho do Porto, Avenida Marginal, Sao Martinho do Porto, Alcobaca 2460-096 Portugal

Next continue through the picturesque villages of Foz do Arelho and São Martinho do Porto. Admire views of agricultural fields and the Atlantic Ocean as you drive along the dramatic, cliff-lined coast.

Stop At: Obidos Village, Obidos Portugal

Finally, make your way to the medieval village of Óbidos. Founded in 208 BC, Óbidos is commonly known in Portugal as the 'wedding present town', as it was a gift from King Dinis to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282. Follow your guide to one of the numerous wine shops and sample the Ginja liqueur, and then enjoy free time to explore the village’s medieval fortress, narrow streets, colorful houses and Gothic doorways and windows decorated with flowerpots and dazzling tiles.

excellent tour! The guide did an exceptional job of blending history and humor at each stop. Fatima was very interesting. The recommendations for restaurants and shops were all top notch. The surf on the beach was nothing short of spectacular! I highly recommend this trip.

We visited Fatima on a Sunday, and there must have been thousands of people. We could only see the Cathedral from afar and squeezing through the mobs of people. It was quite an experience. Our tour continued to Batalha Monastery. It was very peaceful in comparison to Fatima. Tour continued to Nazare, where our guide, Rui introduced us to one of the locals, who wears seven skirts (one of each day of the week). She sold dried fruits, nuts and other baked goods on the seaside. She offered us a taste of the nuts, dried fruits and local baked goods. There were so good that we had to buy something to take away. Rui introduced us to a lovely place for lunch. We enjoyed our delicious lunch, and we spent a little bit of time on the beach. We were then off to Obidos. Obidos was a charming town. We wished we had some time to walk the wall. Then, off for a taste of Ginja. It was a lovely tour! Rui was a fantastic guide! He offered a lot of knowledge. He was very informative. He had to deal with the post-marathon traffic on the way back. He managed to bring us back timely and as near the place of origin as possible.

Great seeing so many places in one day. Highly recommend. Only negative is that the guide should have let us know that the restaurant he chose was cash only ...also would have preferred that he give us a few options like on the Sintra tour

I thought it was a good general overview... got to see a walled city of Seaside city and religious site... The only disappointment...I would’ve liked at least another 20 minutes or so in Fatima.. I could’ve used less time in Obidos....

We had a wonderful excursion to Fátima, Nazaré and Óbidos. Vlad was knowledgeable of the history and culture of the region. He took us to some beautiful overlooks and a fabulous local restaurant for lunch. We highly recommend viator tours and this one was one of the best we’ve been on.

From a spiritual experience at Fatima, nice ocean views at Nazare to a medieval experience at Obidos which included ginja tastings and a walk through interesting, quaint shops, it was a mix of everything Portugal in one day Our guide, Rui was funny and amazing.

If you have limited time and want to visit several ‘must see’ sites leaving from Lisbon, this all day tour is for you. Each of the four stops is a different experience. This small group tour allowed us to make the most of our two days in Lisbon. Our extremely knowledgeable and personable tour guide, Nuno M., went out of his way to make sure we had a wonderful and educational experience. In addition to seeing the sites we learned a lot about the country’s history and culture, and also modern day life in Portugal. The van was comfortable and the day flew by thanks to Nuno, who made us feel like old friends.

Excellent day trip which was fully in line with the description and more. The tour guide, André, was extremely knowledgable and really wanted us all to go away with the best experience possible. He managed to find a great place for us to eat at great value for money and we were also able to make the most of every stop by visiting the additonal monuments (at our own cost if we so wanted to) and according to what we were looking for in the tour, which is both of interest from a general tourist point of view and also from a religious one as visiting a number of important Marial shrines - I would highly recommend this tour as one of the best I have ever done.
