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.

Great Day/Experience

It was great seeing both site, the town and houses of where the children grew up. But there was limited time, a little less than a half hour. I wish we had more time to walk around and explore the shops. However, there was ample time at the church, an hour and a half. Which was more than enough time to walk around and see everything. Our tour guide was great, but wish there was more explanation of the history and information. All in all it was a great day and I learned a lot. It is something I will remember for the rest of my life.
