Our tour guide was very nice. There was only me and my friend signed up for this trip and she picked us up at our hotel and brought us back there. Her English was very good and she explained the Fatima story perfectly.

I really enjoyed the visit, it was a dream comes true. Carlos our tour guide was more than perfect and showed us everything. My advise is to buy souvenirs from the shop in front of the young saints house, it is at least 3 euros less in each item than the big shops.

Our half-day trip to Fatima Shrine was enough for us to get to know the sites. Our guide Fabio was fluent in English. He gave insights about the Portuguese culture as a whole not only about the sites we visited.

Everything was perfect: a very comfortable ride, a nice touristic guide, and interesting shops. It was very emotional for me to be able to see Jacinta and Lucia graves at the church.
