Head out on this Half-Day Private Tour to Fatima, for guests with very limited time, that just want to see the main Sanctuary. Fatima is the religious capital of Portugal, famous for its Sanctuary that honors the appearance of Our Lady of Fatima (Virgin Mary) that appeared in 1917 to the three little children, located just outside Lisbon (70 miles). Fatima is considered one of the major Catholic sanctuaries in the world, visited every year by more than 5 million people. On this Private Tour, you’ll visit main Sanctuary Square, the location of the Shrine, which is twice the size of St Peters Square in the Vatican – it’s quite impressive! Including also visits the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary, where the tombs of the little children, consecrated as Saints in 2017 are buried, the new Basilica, built in 2007, as the 4th biggest in the world. Time for mass is usually not available on half-day tours, as time spent around Fatima is approx 1h30m on half-day tours. We recommend booking instead of the full-day option if wish to assist mass and spend more time at the sanctuary during the day.
->Great News: Pope Francis has visited Fatima in May 2017 and canonized the children as the youngest Saints of the Catholic Church in the world!

Review of: Private Fatima Tour from Lisbon
My husband and I took a private tour to Fatima for the day with Andy. He was on time and was very friendly in route. We enjoyed our morning at Fatima where Andy was helpful in directing us while there but respectful of our wanting private time there as well. I especially enjoyed the local aspect of the tour with little extras along the way. We stopped for lunch at a local venue after touring the home of the children from the apparitions. We even had time to visit the local manufacturing facility of the Fatima statues, rosaries etc. where I was able to purchase genuine Fatima goods. Andy even took us for a tour in the back to see the artists working on the statues. On our way home we stopped in the small town of Obidos which was an added bonus and a delightful afternoon. My husband especially enjoyed touring this “walled” town. If I were to travel back to Lisbon, I would absolutely request Andy for another tour. I have no complaints at all!

Memorable time while in Fatima & Portugal – May 2017
Although we arrived @ Lisbon Airport 2 hours before our tour begins on 5/11/17, our tour guide Andy picked us up a little after 8 AM and drove us directly to Fatima to begin our private tour of the shrine of our Lady of Fatima and thoroughly walked us through the grounds, explaining & pointing out the exact sight where our Lady appeared to the 3 shepherd children 100 years ago where a little chapel is now erected and where people come to honor our Virgin Mary. We got to go inside & visit the main shrine, the newly constructed shrine standing right across the original shrine, the site where a piece of the Berlin Wall was donated to Fatima, light candles & pray for our family & friends. Due to time constrict, and wanting to squeeze in a visit to the bleeding Eucharist at the Holy Miracle church in Santarem on our way back to Lisbon, we skip the Fatima library. Andy brought us the house where Francisco, Jacinta & Lucia grew up & we got to also walk down to the well site here the angel appeared to these 3 shepherd children followed by a delicious lunch @ a local restaurant nearby & a visit to the factory where all the religious artifacts such as statues, rosaries & many other items are manufactured locally & sold at local shops & shipped worldwide. Our last stop was Santarem-holy-miracle-church. Although We did not get to privately view the bleeding eucharist exposed in a pear shape monstral, we feel blessed to enter the Holy Miracle church & be able to see the blessed Sacrament & feel the presence of our Lord God from the back of the church while a holy mass was in progress. We were dropped off at our hotel at the end of the tour.
During the long drive back, we got to know more about our guide Andy who is not only very knowledgeable on Portugal history, he is also very friendly & funny, about his passion.
Andy was very caring & attentive to our needs since my husband has mobility issues, Andy helped with pushing my husband’s wheelchair around and allow us extra time to say a prayer and take pictures.
Although we couldn’t get into Fatima on 5/12 or 5/13 to witness Pope Francis canonized Francisco & Jacinta, since all of the semi private & private tours were sold out, Gonzalo @ Sintra Magik Tour opened up a full day private Fatima/Santarem tour just for us on 5/11/17 & also arranged to have us picked up at the airport instead of us having to go the downtown pickup location, we are very grateful for such personalized & customized services to cater to our personal needs. We highly recommend Sintra Magik Tour to everyone and espescially anyone with mobility issues.
Thank you, Gonzalo & Andy for providing us with such a memorable time while in
Fatima & Santarem, Portugal.
We will definitely use Sintra Magik Tour when we return to Portugal for other tours.

Extremely knowledgeable and informative – May 2017
First visit to Portugal
My wife and I took a 3 week cross Atlantic cruise, ending in Lisbon. We were picked up at the pier by Pedro and Diogo at 8:45a. They loaded our luggage, and we spent the next 9 hours touring Sintra castle, stopping in town for a 40 minute private Port wine tasting, then to a fishing village for the best meal of the trip, whole Sea Bass. Pedro seemed to be friends with everyone, called ahead to have them start the cooking, and treated us like long lost friends. Both guides were extremely knowledgeable and informative, and knew how to get in and out of crowds, especially given it was May Day. We cannot recommend Sintra Magik tours and our guides.

Outstanding Full Day Tour of Lisbon – November 2017
My wife and I have one word to describe our day-long walking and driving tour through Lisbon: FANTASTIC. Miguel was right on time, and he worked hard throughout the course of the long day to make this a special experience. We did not feel like he was “on the clock” but rather it felt like a friend was showing us around a city that he loves. Miguel provided us with a thoughtful and thorough tour of Lisbon. We felt like we came away with a much, much better understanding of Portugal, and the history of the people, country, religion, arts, and architecture — all while getting a good sense of the geography and beauty of Lisbon. Miguel was tireless in bringing us all around the city and made our day with him one of exploration and learning. We ended up spending 4 more days in Lisbon after our tour, and we constantly remarked to each other about how much we had seen with Miguel and learned from him about Lisbon and about Portuguese culture and history. He was good-spirited throughout the day, and was open to sharing his own experiences and to shifting what we were doing that day based on ongoing discussions and learning more about our interests. He gave us with a number of other great recommendations that we followed up on afterwards.
We would not hesitate to recommend Miguel to anyone visiting your City. Thank you for making the arrangements for Miguel to assist us.

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon
Sintra Magik was recommended to me by two separate friends of mine who told me this experience was a ‘do not miss.’ Andy was our tour guide and he was great! Each stop was more beautiful than the last, and Andy was able to answer all our questions and was wonderful in knowing all the details. Our favorite part (and meal) of the day was the stop we made on our way to Cascais to a delicious and authentic Portuguese restaurant, recommended by Andy. We still talk about the food we were served! Overall a great day – we will definitely recommend!
