Best Private Pilgrimage to Fatima and Eucharistic Miracle at Santarem – August
Best Private Pilgrimage to Fatima and Eucharistic Miracle at Santarem – August
I can’t say enough about how miraculous our pilgrimage was for the 100 years Fatima Jubilee. Pedro was our guide and Guardian Angel. He took care of our every need and was sensitive to our needs and desires. He thought of every detail and made sure our time at each stop was intimate and private. He was well connected and was able to accommodate our every request. Pedro was very friendly and made us feel comfortable from the start and by the end of our day together we considered him our friend. If you want to go to Fatima and Santarem…Pedro is your guy!
I have told all my friends and family that they need to visit Fatima with Pedro. He is a devout Catholic who is happy to share his love of Fatima with all. A wonderful unexpected bonus was how good he was with a camera which came in handy when we asked if he minded taking our picture at all the special places we visited. He was more than happy to take our picture and made sure it was the perfect shot. What a treat when we got home and uploaded all the pictures he took. A great visual reminder of our special unforgettable day! Thank you, Pedro!
Also a big thank you to Gonzalo who so patiently answered all of our questions leading up to the big day. He could tell how much this visit to Fatima meant to us and was willing to accommodate our every request.
I have no doubt that Sintra Magik is the best company to work with when planning a trip to Fatima and Santarem.

Memorable time while in Fatima & Portugal
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
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.

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!

Highly Recommend Sintra Magik Service – May 2021
Highly Recommend Sintra Magik Service
We booked a private guided tour to Fatima with Sintra Magik and were very satisfied with the experience. Diogo is an excellent guide who is capable of answering questions in-depth, as well as being a pleasant companion. The vehicle was new and spacious.
After a morning in Fatima, the tour included lunch on the coast in Nazare, where he took us to a great local restaurant where we were the only non-Portuguese customers – simply superb! We concluded with a walking tour of Obidos.
What particularly impressive was that Diogo gave us excellent recommendations for other excursions we were subsequently taking on our own.
