What people are saying about Fátima
I love this tour. It was an amazing experience with Tania, our tour guide, who has vast knowledge of Portugal history. The tour was never rushed and we were given enough time for ourselves to wander around a certain area. Safety and security was also highlighted and i’ve felt that i was really taken care of. Thank you very much Lisbon Riders specially to Tanya for making this tour an unforgettable experience.
Beautiful places on this nice trip. Luis, our tour guide, was kind and give us a lot of information. It's our second trip in two days. Yesterday we were in Sintra, Pena Palace, Cascaise and Cabo da Roca with Andre Feldman which is the best guide and make beautiful pictures. For sure this company provide top quality services.
This was one of my best trips ever. The guide, Andre Feldman, is excellent in explaining the history and culture of these cities. I would definitely recommend this trip when visiting Lisbon.
