What to expect
Meet your guide at your Lisbon hotel, and learn about Portuguese history and faith as you travel north to Fátima, home to the Sanctuary of Fátima, a legendary pilgrimage site. Learn how three local shepherd children described the appearance of ‘a lady in white’ in 1917, then visit the basilica where the three children are buried. Continue to the UNESCO-listed Batalha Monastery, a 14th-century Domincan convent built to commemorate a fierce battle between Portuguese and Castilan troops in 1385. Discover the rich details of the Gothic building, and trace the influence of local Manueline architecture through the site. Stroll the picture-perfect center of Alcobaça, where historic neighborhoods and a quiet river wrap around the Alcobaça Monastery, another UNESCO site that’s among the most beautiful places in Portugal. Pay your respects to a pair of famous lovers buried in the monastery, and hear the tragic story of Prince Pedro and Inês de Castro, the queen who was crowned after death. Make a final stop of the day at the walled city of Óbidos, and follow a maze of cobblestone streets to a historic castle, local shops and perfectly preserved homes; watch sunset from the pretty hilltown, then make the return trip to your Lisbon hotel. From March 28th to October 31st, this tour can accommodate a visit to the Fátima Candlelight Procession which takes place daily between 9:30pm and 11pm.

A long, unnecessary route to Fátima
Oct 2019
This tour is basically a stop-and-go bus to Fátima (we did the night option). Apart from Óbidos, you get barely enough time to stretch your legs at all the other stops. I regret booking this for my own family and would have hired a private bus straight to Fátima if I had to do it all again.

In Óbidos, you get to walk around and see the old structures. However, this place is set up like a tourist trap. We were actively encouraged by our driver to keep walking and don't get sucked into any shops. Speaking of the driver, he was on a mission to get us to Fátima as soon as humanly possible. He was speeding everywhere we went enough to the point that my Aunt and toddler started throwing up from motion sickness. At every stop, he gave us no more than 15 min to take a few pictures or go to the restroom. It made me really question why the other stops were even on the list if we weren't going to do anything other than snap some Instagram pics. To cap it all off, the driver destroyed someone's bumper backing up into a parking spot, then took out another pole on the road. It sure made for some interesting conversation (and prayers) when we finally got to Fátima.

Once we were in Fátima, the driver disappeared and let everyone explore on their own timing, which was fine considering the venue. Once we were done, the driver took us straight back to our hotel.

Overall, I'd say you shouldn't mix Fátima with any of these other day tour locations. It's too far out of the way to make the tours worthwhile. Do a pure Fátima day trip or do the others without Fátima to make sure you're not rushed and have time to enjoy the beautiful scenery and local vendors.

A Dream Tour
Oct 2019 • Couples
John picked us up on time and to our delight we were the only passengers this day. Have always had an intense interest in Fatima and the miracles that happened there. John was very informative about the events and history of the area and changes that have occurred since. Very solemn and beautiful while at shrine. Then on to Batalha and Óbidos, both were wonderful suprises. Óbidos a delightful walled village of narrow streets and pretty flowers. Batalha a marvel and we even got to see the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the unknown soldier. Huge complex and very beautiful, everything from ornate tombs to gorgeous stained glass works. John could not have been more informative and delightful.

An ex day trip to Fátima Alcobaca and Óbidos.
We enjoyed the many monuments at Fátima, lit candles for our parents. On to Batalha and Alcobaca to see some beautiful churches from 1300 an 1400 centuries. Then on to the walled city of a Óbidos that still has people living within the walls. It was charming with cute cafes and gift shops.
Our tour guide Bernardo was very well versed on the Geographic and historic information. We all really enjoyed the day

Fatima is definitely the highlight
Sep 2019
Our tour guide from BeDriven picked us up at our hotel at 2 PM. There were 3 of us in our group, and we were the only ones on the tour. It was definitely a private tour. Our tour guide was a nice gentleman who generally spoke in the car when spoken to. He added some commentary at each location, but did not provide us with a lot of historical information (I guess I expected a little more). We did feel a little rushed as we were told several of the locations closed at 6 PM, and the driver wanted to get us there to see them before closing. We appreciated seeing these sites, but it put us in Fatima quite early. We arrived at 7 PM, and the rosary ceremony didn't start until 9:30 PM and the candlelight procession until 10 PM. We didn't eat until we had a break in Fatima at 7:30 PM. Since we didn't eat lunch before we left, we were starving. Our fault for not planning better, but the explanation of our tour timing was different than the itinerary on the site because we did the candlelight procession and essentially did the tour in a different order. If you do the tour in the order I described, eat lunch first and take a snack with you. You will be glad you did.

Obidos was nice but very touristy. We enjoyed seeing the churches at Batalha and Alcobaca, but we did not go into the monestary because of the time we arrived. We had a very quick stop at Navares to see the beach. It was breathtaking.

The highlight of the tour was Fatima. We missed the mass in English, but quite frankly, we wouldn't have had time for dinner had we attended. And as I mentioned, we were starving. We had a leisurely dinner at a local restaurant recommended by our driver. It was tasty as well as decently priced. We were essentially on our own the entire time we were in Fatima. We purchased our candles and some rosaries before heading to the rosary ceremony. We arrived at 9 PM for the 9:30 PM start, and I'm glad we did. About half the seats were already taken. The rosary ceremony was presented in many languages with speakers changing place throughout the process. For example, the first 5 Hail Marys were performed in Portuguese, then 5 in Italian, 5 in Spanish, 5 in English, 5 in German, and others in languages I did not recognize. It was beautiful. Then the procession took place around the square starting around 10 PM immediately following the rosaries. It was a seamless process. Let me tell you, it was a moving experience. After the procession, there was a blessing of the items we purchases (for example, the rosaries). Then we were driven back to Lisbon, and we arrived home just before midnight.

I debated rating this a 4 but decided on the 5 rating simply because of the Fatima experience. I recommend doing the candelight procession at Fatima because without it, I do not believe we would have enjoyed the visit as much. Although I wanted to go for religious reasons, it seemed a bit touristy without the actual religious part of the evening.

Best Day Trip of Our Lives
May 2019 • Family
Silva, our guide, was awesome! He asked us about our interests before we left to learn more what we wanted to do that day. Then he tailored the time spent at each location to accommodate. We wanted more time in Fatima and he even took us to the village where the children lived. He was pleasant and knowledgeable. My only regret is I booked the trip through a broker instead of direct with BeDriven,

Avoid BeDriven company
Apr 2019 • Family
We booked with BeDriven company, to visit Fatima & other surrounding towns, and how we wish we didn’t. First of all, the driver (Bernardo) was almost an hour late! What made it more annoying was that the company did a poor job communicating with us why he was running late! We were the ones who kept calling the company and asking for updates. Second, we thought it was a guided tour. What we got was a driver who provided us with very little facts about the places we visited. Third, the driver changed our itinerary without letting us know! We felt stuck and swindled. The only saving grace this tour had was the lunch. It was part of the tour and the name of the restaurant was Restorante Polo Norte. If we were just reviewing the restaurant, it would have been a different story. Therefore, if you want to visit Fatima, go with a more reliable company.
