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.

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.

Wonderful experience in Portugal – March 2019
Wonderful experience in Portugal!
Excellent tour experience with Diogo! We had a fantastic three day tour of Southern Portugal. He knew all the best sites and restaurants to visit. Diogo spoke English very well and took care of all the negotiating at stores, restaurants, etc. His knowledge of Portugal and ability to get us into places for private tours was amazing. He has a great sense of humor and is always perceptive to the needs of the group.

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon
Neighbors highly recommended the private Golden Triangle Tour once we arrived in Lisbon. We booked immediately. The tour was everything it states and more.
Sintra, Cabo de Roca and Cascais were beautiful and amazing but we must say that the top-notch service was the very best !
Andy was prompt, knowledgable , interesting, fun , an excellent driver and tour guide. We loved his great amounts of knowledge and his interest in learning and sharing yet more. His enthusiasm was contagious so we too wanted to learn more.
Sentra’s private tour afforded us a “skip-the’line” style as Andy navigated us around larger tour groups.
Our day was one we shall never forget.
Thank you to Andy, Sintra Magik tours and our neighbors who referred us.
We highly recommend this tour as we know you will love it too.

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.
