Fatima, no doubt one of the most esteemed religious centers in the world, where three little shepherds witnessed the apparition of Our Lady, on May 13, 1917 a lady more brilliant than the Sun “appeared to the three children, alerting them to the importance of praying, and telling them that she would appear again on that same day ( 13th of the next months ) and time for five consecutive months.
In the last apparition on October 13, about 70,000 people gathered to watch the apparition, Our Lady appeared this day became famous as “Miracle of the Sun”: where the Sun began to spin as fast as a ball in circles most of people who were completely wet from the rain, suddenly were completely dried up.

Obidos an open-air museum where the medieval times breathe its romantic and picturesque environment, so well preserved over centuries, Obidos was used countless times as a “wedding gift” of the Portuguese Kings to their future Queens. Their narrow cobbled streets, white houses with colored bands and flowers scattered all over the land make Obidos one of the most joyful villages in Portugal.

My husband and I spent two days with Jorge Bras, touring the areas in and around Lisbon. We had a total of five guides during our visit to Portugal, and Jorge was our absolute favorite! Jorge is extremely knowledgable about Portugal’s history, very professional, but is also a warm and sincere person. We were sad to part ways, even knowing we had another week and half of our vacation left!

Jorge was instrumental in making our entire trip to Portugal extremely memorable and informative. And we cannot thank him enough for that.

We booked a 5 hr trip to Fatima through Walkborder due to the highly positive reviews and the 5 hr timeframe (others are an hour shorter, which is tough given 90 min ride from Lisbon). Jorge was our guide and was wonderful, not only with his insights about Fatima, but in sharing his insight and tips about Portugal.

We were picked up in a roomy Mercerdes van and Jorge was a delight throughout trip. He gave us layout of the Fatima grounds, explaining all the buildings and their significance, so we could use our time wisely. He also took us to a factory site (available only to tour groups) where you can shop for both religious and Portuguese items. Lastly, he drove us to village of the 3 children to see the homes they lived in.

One more thing, there was a big truck rollover on way to Fatima that delayed us a good half hr…Jorge extended the day so we wouldn’t be short-changed. Very gracious. Highly recommend this company. Wished we used them for Sintra too because it would have given us more insight and efficiency in spending our time there.

This was on a high note a spritual journey visiting the Fatima Church. This was an exhilarating experience at Fatima. João our ever dependable guide and driver gave us an indepth account of Fatima and the apparition . The church complex particularly the old church was in itself a wonderful experience. Obidos a beautiful village, medieval to the core and very quaint. these are locations not to be missed. A special bonus if you travel with Walkborder, a fantastic tour company with an outstanding guide João. ask for him.

“Great service”

We hired Walkborder Tour to pick us up from the Lisbon airport to Fatima and back. Although it was a short trip, our driver Hugo was very pleasant and helpful to accommodate all of our requests. The car was nice, clean and comfortable with captain chairs for all 8 of us. They provided a carseat for my 3 1/2 years old free of charge. They also accommodated the time changed for our pickup due to Air France messed up our connection in Paris. We definitely will use Walkborder again if we return to Portugal in the future. Thank you for making our first visit safe and comfortable.
