    Our guide, Nelson Rodrigues was amazing. He had so many interesting tidbits to share regarding not only the “Little Visionaries” but also about what was like living during that time in Fátima. He knew so many of the people from the area, including the 99 year old the niece of Sr Lucia, whom he introduced us to. I would highly recommend hiring Nelson if you want the best tour possible. Nelson picked us up at our hotel in a very comfortable van. There were 4 of us adults in the tour. He truly knew the area like the back of his hand. He welcomed our questions, and did not rush our tour at all. It was evident that he knew what he was talking about, and was eager to share his knowledge with us.

Nelson was very professional, knowledgeable, welcoming, and was an excellent representative of Fatima and Portugal. he had excellent communication skills and went out of his way to recommend us to a wonderful local Portuguese restaurant called A Fandanguita.
