Mafra National Palace is one of the biggest and impressive Palaces in the world, the biggest in Iberian Peninsula (Portugal and Spain), started building in 1717 by King John the fifth, is one of the major baroque architecture references in the world, with more than 1200 rooms and about 40.000 sqm! 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. The visit will later follow to Ericeira, a coast fisherman village, to enjoy great views and relax before returning to your hotel.

The best part of our vacation – June 2017

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!

First visit to Portugal
My wife and I took a 3 week cross Atlantic cruise, ending in Lisbon. We were picked up at the pier by Pedro and Diogo at 8:45a. They loaded our luggage, and we spent the next 9 hours touring Sintra castle, stopping in town for a 40 minute private Port wine tasting, then to a fishing village for the best meal of the trip, whole Sea Bass. Pedro seemed to be friends with everyone, called ahead to have them start the cooking, and treated us like long lost friends. Both guides were extremely knowledgeable and informative, and knew how to get in and out of crowds, especially given it was May Day. We cannot recommend Sintra Magik tours and our guides.

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.

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.

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon

Sintra Magik was recommended to me by two separate friends of mine who told me this experience was a ‘do not miss.’ Andy was our tour guide and he was great! Each stop was more beautiful than the last, and Andy was able to answer all our questions and was wonderful in knowing all the details. Our favorite part (and meal) of the day was the stop we made on our way to Cascais to a delicious and authentic Portuguese restaurant, recommended by Andy. We still talk about the food we were served! Overall a great day – we will definitely recommend!
