          A true 5 STAR tour of Fatima!!
          Our tour with Daniela was fantastic. From the moment that she picked us up, she immersed us in Fátima and its history, peppered with wonderful conversation and funny anecdotes. We loved this tour! There were accommodations made for pictures, bathroom breaks, a little shopping, a lunch in town, and private time to explore and embrace the spirituality of Fatima. The tour was beyond thorough and we never felt rushed through any portion. This is a definite 5 star day! Thank you Daniela!

          Wonderful tour in Fatima
          Do not hesitate to book a tour with Magnificat Tours, it was the highlight of our trip!! Daniela was our guide and she was EXCEPTIONAL (and a good driver)!! I wish we booked an all day Fatima tour, but she made sure we saw everything important which we truly appreciated. Daniela is a walking Catholic encyclopedia and she made this trip a unique spiritual experience. For example, she gave us instructions on how we could go to Reconciliation there which was very special. As for logistics, my husband and I were picked up from our Lisbon hotel in the morning and Daniela was kind enough to drop us off at a different location in the afternoon. On the tour, we had time for a quick gift shop stop, toured the highlights (both walking and driving) and had time for our own private reflection. I am still processing all I learned from this tour since Fatima was a bucket list trip for me!

          If you don’t have the full day, do the half day and you won’t regret it!
          Daniella was absolutely amazing! My husband and I did the private half day tour and we cannot recommend it enough. Professional, clean van, knows the history of Portugal and Fatima. Was able to talk with us on the way there and back. If we could, we would have spent the whole day with Daniella! Thank you so much for adding the sweet touch to our tour. We will always remember you when we think and pray our Fatima prayer 🫶

          Amazing Family Experience
          We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Daniela. We were travelling with our adult daughter & son-in-law & we found it to be a beautiful experience. It was obvious, that Daniela being a devout Catholic herself, was very passionate about Fatima & was a wealth of information. We felt blessed to have her as our guide. We recommend this tour to anyone wanting an authentic experience of Fatima in a relaxed environment.

          Blessed day in Fatima.
          Our day with Daniel in Fatima was outstanding and highly recommended. It was truly a spiritual and blessed day. Daniel’s intimate knowledge of all the sites and the stories behind all the blessed events made for a visit that will not soon be forgotten. If you are looking for a full day to immerse yourself in the experience and spirituality of the sanctuary at Fatima, the homes of Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia and the Sacred Way, this day is not to be missed.

          Excellent tour with Daniel S.
          Excellent tour overall. Our guide and driver, Daniel S., was punctual, friendly and so knowledgeable. We learned so much about the history of the 3 children and Our Lady. Fatima was such a peaceful, little town. We saw the children’s homes, the church where they were baptized and the garden where the Angel appeared. The cathedral was beautiful and the children’s tombs were a sight to behold. We were able to stop by a store to buy souvenirs for family and friends. Daniel even helped us track our missing luggage! Highly recommend this tour. Obrigado, Daniel!

          Informative, Enlightening & Wonderful Trip to Fatima
          Daniel was an excellent tour guide for our first trip to Fatima. We spent time to see the village where Blessed Lucia, St. Francisco & St. Jacinta lived. He told the story so well for us to learn the lives of these children, and how the Angel of Peace & Our Lady appeared in this small village. It was an enlightening and touching tour. We were also given enough time to hear mass at the Basilica, pray, meditate and soak in the blessings of this trip to see the apparition site of Our Lady of Fatima.

          Fabulous tour of Lisbon with a terrific tour company
          It was our first time in Lisbon, a one-day stop on a cruise and we wanted to make the best of it, so we booked a 4 hr tour with Magnificat Tours. We were expecting a small group but it was just us and the marvelous guide, Danielle. Danielle was extraordinary! Trained as an architect with post-grad education in art and history, the history and architecture of this beautiful city and fascinating country came to life with her delightful narrative and beautiful English. Her expert driving and the Mercedes van were nice, too! The time with her passed all too quickly. We look forward to returning to Lisbon and will use this family owned and operated tour company.

          Informative and enjoyable full day tour of Fatima.
          We highly recommend this tour if you want a full day at Fatima exploring all the various locales. Daniel was a fantastic driver and guide. We were picked up on time at our hotel and enjoyed a beautiful drive to Fatima. This was a private tour so we were able to tailor it to our wishes. Daniel provided us with much information, both verbal and written. We visited many sights such as the village and the shepherd’s stations of the cross, had a delicious lunch at a restaurant recommended by Daniel, then spent the afternoon at the Shrine itself, having lots of time to experience the peace and spirituality of the place. Daniel gave us lots of time to explore on our own and let us set the pace for the day. He was so knowledgeable and made the day so informative and enjoyable.

          An amazing time in Fatima
          We planned a trip to Lisbon with the main purpose of visiting Fatima and in searching for tour options we found Magnificat Tours and choosing them was the best. On the tour, I was only with my mother and Daniel, who was our guide, gave us valuable information about the history of Fatima and the little shepherds. Although the tour was in English and my mother speaks Spanish, I thank Daniel for explaining very well and slowly because this way my mother was able to understand a lot and enjoy the visit to Fatima like I did. We left Lisbon on time and had the opportunity to buy souvenirs and, in addition to visiting the town where the little shepherds lived and the church where they were baptized, we had time on our own to attend a mass in the sanctuary and spend an unforgettable time without hurry. Thank you, Daniel, for your dedication in sharing Fatima's story. If you are looking for a tour full of history and complete, this is the option.

          This was a perfect tour of Fatima!
          The private Fatima half-day tour from Lisbon with Magnificat Tours was FANTASTIC. Our tour guide, Daniella, was super!! She explained so much and could answer all of our questions (and we had a lot!). And this was all done while she was driving us through a rain storm. Daniella is pretty impressive. She added in a brief visit at the shepherd's homes for us, which was greatly appreciated! She provided advice on how to see what we wanted to see and how to have our items blessed. The tour provided enough time to make some souvenir purchases, walk through parts of the shrine with Daniella, walk through more on our own, and we even caught the Catholic Mass. And it was so convenient to be picked up and dropped off right at our hotel in Lisbon. The price was less than other companies offering the tour. We highly recommend this tour!
