We initially wanted to cancel the Fatima tour as we have been to other religious pilgrimage sites in this trip like Santiago de Compostela and Braga. We’re glad we didn’t as this tour happened to be the best tour we had in Portugal. The Fatima tour was amazing and gave us a deeper perspective as it was both religious and historical. We had a great seafood lunch at the picturesque seaside town of Nazare then off to the shell-shaped bay of Sao Martinho do Porto and the well-preserved medieval caste of Obidos. This tour combination is a must and I would highly recommend it to my Filipino friends. The best part of the tour is our tour guide Andre Feldman. He such a lively, knowledgeable and kind person. The depth of knowledge and insights in so many aspects of the tour are astonishing. He shows respect to the culture of others, speaks different languages and drives defensively unlike many ‘rally’ drivers in Lisbon. He is the best tour guide we have had in years. Thank you Andrei.

Andre Feldman is the BEST tour guide we’ve ever had. Been travelling to Europe for over a decade now and all of our tour guides are good at what they do, but Andre is just beyond amazing. From start to finish he is just so good, knowledgeable, professional, funny, great sense of humor, amazing photographer, speaks multiple languages and he can also sing! I mean the guy is multi talented! he has it all. Thank you for providing us with the best tour guide. He made our trip extra special ;)

Our guide Andreas ensured we saw the most and educated us in providing us a fantastic trip. He showed fantastic knowledge throughout the day and gave us a great insight into each place we visited. There was a mixture of religious, traditional Portugal, coastal places and a walled town with Castle, each unique and beautiful. Would definitely recommend this trip and Andreas really enhanced our trip and allowed us to have a fantastic day, thank you! 5 stars!!

Andre is knowledgeable and entertaining. The trip was enjoyable. Seen lots, All three places were good to see. We had a good group of eight. Andre was considerate, and excellent guide. Three of us (all over 70) were in the back seat and found it was a rough ride and not very easy to get in and out.

Our guide (Pedro dos Santos) was very knowledgeable and ensured we are all happy throughout a trip
