Pedro was first class – May 2017
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.

Tremendous Guides, memorable stay – May 2017
Highlights of Lisbon/ Sintra Wine Tasting
We just had a day and half to experience Lisbon and Sintra as a family with our adult children. Gonzalo and Andy were tremendous guides who allowed us to see and do more than we ever could have experienced on our own or with a large, unpersonalized tour company. They met us at the airport and truly made everything easy and seamless for us. We had toured Barcelona just days earlier with a larger tour operator and Sintra Magik was a superior experience because of their personalized service and expert knowledge of the history, politics, and culture of Portugal. They both spoke perfect English, and were delightful companions to our introduction to Portugal.
One of the highlights of the trip was experiencing the amazing foods and wines of Portugal. This is where the tour really excelled. We had a private tour of a local winery. The fourth-generation owner was simply delightful, sharing his knowledge of local wines and regions. At another location, we has a private tasting of local port, cheeses and meats complete with the history. We also enjoyed a meal at a local restaurant that was off the tourist path and which served fresh fish that had been caught that morning. The fish, the wine, the fresh vegetables, the Portuguese desserts…unforgettable!
If you want to experience Portuguese history, food and culture in a personalized, first class way, I highly recommend Sintra Magik Tours. They made our brief stay in Portugal relaxed and memorable.

Memorable time while in Fatima & Portugal – May 2017
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.

Loved this tour
Our colleagues arranged this trip for us as a private tour. Rui was so nice and so knowledgeable about the history of the palace of Pena. He got us there as soon as it was opened as it is a very popular tourist attraction. We took the tram to the top and immediately he took aside to explain the history and the architecture of the palace. It was an extremely interesting and historical experience, probably about 2 hrs. He then brought us coffee and a local pastry which was delish. Then he took us to the shore for a lunch at Neptunos, right on the water with a view of the ocean. He ordered us the traditional cod dish and that did not disappoint. It was so delicious and the server was so accommodating. The prices are so reasonable with more than enough food. We then traveled to Capo de Raco and saw the beautiful cliffs there. It was breathtaking. We went on to a fantastic wine tasting and home through the lovely town of Cascais. It was a full day but we learned so much from Rui about the history and the people of Portugal. Would use this tour group again when we return.

We could not thank him enough, he was knowledgeable about everything.This is the way to see a city. The tour company was awesome as well, whatever we wanted was what we did.
