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.
Best tour guide we ever had
Private tour to Fatima
On May 28 four of us from RSSC -Explorer cruise took the private Fatima tour with driver/guide par excellence Mr Diogo Costa. It was a wonderful , moving religious experience. Mr. Diogo Costa is the best tour guide we ever had in all our years of travelling worldwide . He is efficient, considerate, speaking fluent English and catering to every need of his clients. He had indeed enabled us to enjoy our trip to Fatima ,a highlight of our vacation. To make it short, Diogo is incredible beyond words! Recommend to all without reservation! Obligato.
Pedro was first class
Lisbon, Fatima, Sintra, Cabo de Roca, Cascais
Pedro was AMAZING!!!
Arriving in Lisbon from Boston, Pedro was there to greet us at the airport at 9am in his brand new Mercedes van. That day and the next, my 3 friends and I had nothing to worry about. Pedro was first class and gave us tours that exceeded the wow factor. From the airport we went up to Fatima. Not only does he give us the whole tour of the basilica and the factory to get rosaries, he brings us back to find a priest to bless them. Even sends us pictures of the Pope who arrived a few days later. After Fatima, he took us down to Lisbon. Pedro knows his history, as he should, he did teach it at the university. He also knows when 4 ladies are ready for sweets and takes us to the right spot for pastries & port!
After an entire day he brought us to our hotel and greeted us again the next morning at 9am. Off to Sintra and Cascais. Had a tour of the amazing Pena Palace up top the mountains with amazing views. Strolled the town, took in a delicious port tasting and learned all about cork and did some pretty cool shopping. Cork bags are beautiful! Wined and dined at a great fishing village restaurant and had an amazing personalized lunch of the best sea bass. Took in breath taking views at the furthest western point of Europe at Cabo de Roca and continued to tour the quaint town of Cascais before he brought us back into Lisbon for a little bit more.
We became good friends with Pedro. He was a wealth of information with a fun and genuine personality. Definitely hit the wow factor touring with Pedro for 2 days.
Perfect day to go to Sintra – June

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon
Our party of 6 was picked up promptly at our hotel and whisked to Sintra while Rui/Roy provided an interesting historical context. As the Palace is very jammed with eager tourists, Rui did a great job in pulling us aside to continue with our history lesson so we didn’t feel like we were part of the great throng. He also created some lovely photo ops. The rest of the day — going to lunch, Cabo da Roca and Cascais for icecream was perfect as was the drive back to town along the coast. Rui was engaging and charming. It was a perfect day to go to Sintra. Thank you, Rui.

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon
We booked a private tour to Sintra, Cabo da Roca, and Cascais with Sintra Magik and it was one of the best days of our trip! We could not have asked for a better tour guide than Miguel. He was so knowledgeable and friendly, and he continuously went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and ensuring we experienced the best of Portugal. It certainly seemed like Miguel went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable in Lisbon and in Portugal and we are extremely grateful that Miguel was our tour guide. He always provided us with options for how we could spend our time so the private tours felt very customized to our preferences. Our group joked that having Miguel as our tour guide felt like just hanging out with a friend – he is a great host!
We enjoyed our private tour to Sintra and Cascais with Miguel so much that we immediately booked a second private tour with Miguel for later that week to Evora and Monsaraz. Both the Sintra tour and Monsaraz were fantastic and I’d highly recommend them. Well worth it to splurge on the private tours!
Overall we had a great time with Miguel and got to see many beautiful parts of Portugal with so many different experiences which we would have otherwise missed if not for Sintra Magik.
