This vast complex is among the most sumptuous Baroque buildings in Portugal and one of the biggest buildings constructed in Europe in the 18th century, built with Brazilian Gold (As Brazil being an old colony from Portugal), 52.000 men were working daily to build this imponent palace. Also has a stunning library with more than 36.000 books, along with Rococo style. Unique in the world is also its pipe organs: more than 6 imponent organs still working after 300 years. The Palace records the oldest Carillon in Europe, and the biggest in the World, consists of 92 bells, weighing total 200 tons (440.000 Pounds!). It was conveniently located for hunting in the nearby forests and was usually a secondary residence for the royal family.

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.

Incredible Tour Guide – May 2017

We booked a tour of Sintra, Pena Palace and the Golden Triangle through Sintra Magik. They were very accommodating of our scheduling needs. Diogo Costa was our private tour guide, and we found him to be awesome! He arrived at our hotel promptly at the scheduled time and had bottled water in his car for us through the day. He is a native of the Sintra area and intimately knowledgable of the entire area. Diogo has a very relaxed, congenial manner which made it easy and comfortable to spend the day with him. The pace of the trip was perfect and our guide was always considerate about having us see and do what we wanted. Diogo also arranged for us to have lunch at a wonderful place in Sintra. He called ahead so that the food would be ready and therefore optimize our sightseeing time. While he is Portuguese, his English language skills are impeccable. I would give Diogo Costa and Sintra Magik Tours my highest recommendation if you’re looking for a private tour.

The best money we ever spent – May 2019

Loved Pena Palace !!
On May 10, while in Portugal for my son’s wedding, me my brother and sister in law went on a tour of Lisbon and Sintra with Miguel. It was the best money we ever spent. Miguel was so knowledgable, friendly and easy going. We had a wonderful unforgettable day! I booked the tour at home in NY based on the fantastic reviews. Susan Lynch

Outstanding Full Day Tour of Lisbon – November 2018
My wife and I have one word to describe our day-long walking and driving tour through Lisbon: FANTASTIC. Miguel was right on time, and he worked hard throughout the course of the long day to make this a special experience. We did not feel like he was “on the clock” but rather it felt like a friend was showing us around a city that he loves. Miguel provided us with a thoughtful and thorough tour of Lisbon. We felt like we came away with a much, much better understanding of Portugal, and the history of the people, country, religion, arts, and architecture — all while getting a good sense of the geography and beauty of Lisbon. Miguel was tireless in bringing us all around the city and made our day with him one of exploration and learning. We ended up spending 4 more days in Lisbon after our tour, and we constantly remarked to each other about how much we had seen with Miguel and learned from him about Lisbon and about Portuguese culture and history. He was good-spirited throughout the day, and was open to sharing his own experiences and to shifting what we were doing that day based on ongoing discussions and learning more about our interests. He gave us with a number of other great recommendations that we followed up on afterwards.

We would not hesitate to recommend Miguel to anyone visiting your City. Thank you for making the arrangements for Miguel to assist us.

Highly Recommend Sintra Magik Service – May 2019

Highly Recommend Sintra Magic Service
We booked a private guided tour to Fatima wiht Sintra Magic and were very satisfied with the experience. Diogo Costa is an excellent guide who is capable of answering questions in depth, as well as being a pleasant companion. The vehicle was new and spacious.
After a morning in Fatima, the tour included lunch on the coast in Nazare, where he took us to a great local restaurant where we were the only non-Portuguese customers – simply superb! We concluded with a walking tour of Obidos.
What particularly impressed was that Diogo gave us excellent recommendations for other excursions we were subsequently taking on our own.
