This is the perfect tour to learn more about the Jewish Roots in Lisbon, Portugal and also the Discoveries Period, the Golden Age of Portugal, who had once one of the biggest and longest world empires ever. Learn from our experienced local guide, the glory from the discoveries period, the navigators, and the kings and queens, back a thousand years ago to our days. You will get an experienced local driver-guide with your tour, providing you transportation and guiding around the major sights of Lisbon. The morning period will be focused in downtown and the Jewish sights of the city (Old Jewish Quarter, Jewish Memorial, etc) learning what happened after the big earthquake that destroyed all Lisbon downtown back in 1755, while the afternoon will be reserved to the discoveries period, allowing time to see the area of Belem, famous for the Belem Tower, Discoveries Monument and Jeronimo’s Monastery. If possible, depending on authorization and availability, we will stop by the Sharee Tikva Synagogue.

The best part of our vacation
The best part of our vacation! We had an amazing guide Diogo. He was so knowledgeable and has such a love of his country it made us love Portugal and want to return as soon as possible. He had everything planned and we would have never seen any of the beautiful places without him. He coordinated an amazing Port tasting and a wonderful lunch during our day. He showed us beautiful places and shared their history. Thank you so much for creating an experience we will never forget!
Another excellent tour with Diogo!
Our first tour with Diogo was in September of 2015. He was the best guide ever and he still is! Nora and friends
Best Private Pilgrimage to Fatima and Eucharistic Miracle at Santarem – August
Best Private Pilgrimage to Fatima and Eucharistic Miracle at Santarem – August
I can’t say enough about how miraculous our pilgrimage was for the 100 years Fatima Jubilee. Pedro was our guide and Guardian Angel. He took care of our every need and was sensitive to our needs and desires. He thought of every detail and made sure our time at each stop was intimate and private. He was well connected and was able to accommodate our every request. Pedro was very friendly and made us feel comfortable from the start and by the end of our day together we considered him our friend. If you want to go to Fatima and Santarem…Pedro is your guy!
I have told all my friends and family that they need to visit Fatima with Pedro. He is a devout Catholic who is happy to share his love of Fatima with all. A wonderful unexpected bonus was how good he was with a camera which came in handy when we asked if he minded taking our picture at all the special places we visited. He was more than happy to take our picture and made sure it was the perfect shot. What a treat when we got home and uploaded all the pictures he took. A great visual reminder of our special unforgettable day! Thank you, Pedro!
Also a big thank you to Gonzalo who so patiently answered all of our questions leading up to the big day. He could tell how much this visit to Fatima meant to us and was willing to accommodate our every request.
I have no doubt that Sintra Magik is the best company to work with when planning a trip to Fatima and Santarem.

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.

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.
