Our Promise To You
All our tours are with a registered private driver who not only drives but also shares with you their local experience and stories of the region. Should you wish an official tour guide to accompany you on your trip and enter the museums, attractions and monuments with you this can be arranged at an extra fee. We always pick you up and drop you off at your accommodation in the Lisbon area. All our cars and minivans are modern, comfortable and come with air-conditioning. We also offer luxury vehicles on request. Please bring along your own refreshments for the journey, as we no longer offer clients single-use plastic bottles of water as we are trying to do our bit for the environment.
Elevador da Nazare – This century-old mode of public transport connects the centre of Nazare to the village, Sitio, on top of the hill. As you can imagine the views are amazing.
Nazare Beach – A wide bay of golden sands, with Sitio towering above. Popular with surfers.
Portuguese Fishing Traditions – Once a productive fishing town, Nazare still boasts many fishing traditions. See the boats coming in at the end of the day and along the beach you may see the wives of the fisherman still wearing traditional dress.
Obidos, Porta de Vila – The main gateway into the town is pretty deceptive, built to prevent cavalry from charging the gates!
Obidos Battlements – A fine example of a Portuguese walled town. Walk along the battlements from Porta de Vila to the castle.
Obidos Castle – Encircled by the ancient town walls, this medieval castle has stood at the top of Obidos hill since the early Moors era (8th – 11th century).

Igreja de Santa Maria and Praca de Santa Maria – A beautiful religious building and the main church of Obidos, is positioned in a quaint and picturesque square.
