Although the tour bus showed up at the pick-up hotel about an hour after the scheduled time, which made us worried and kept us in limbo (we didn't have e-mail access. We'd have recieved the delay notice if we did), the entire tour turned out to be wonderful. The guide was a very very nice guy, friendly and knowledgeable. I was amazed that he continued without a break telling us the stories about the places we were about to visit while driving very fast, and he spoke English and Portugese at the same time. Non Christian visitors might have felt it difficult to see the significance of the sites, if it were not for his fascinating story telling. He was also very flexible amending the time frames according to our requests. We spent two hours at Castelo de Obidos, where we enjoyed 3 to 5 cups per person of Ginja de Obidos.

We really enjoyed this tour to see some of the sites outside Lisbon. Luis was a great guide and shared lots of interesting stories. We had a good amount of time at each of the stops and didn't feel rushed.

Excellent Tour that takes you through the different cities near Lisbon. Impressive the church of Fátima and the cities of Nazare, Batlha and Obidos. 100% worth it
