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.

Highly Recommend Sintra Magik Service – May 2021
Highly Recommend Sintra Magik Service
We booked a private guided tour to Fatima with Sintra Magik and were very satisfied with the experience. Diogo 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 impressive was that Diogo gave us excellent recommendations for other excursions we were subsequently taking on our own.

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!

HIGHLY recommend this company
A visit to Sintra and Cascais with Pedro
I cannot say enough about this company and especially Pedro. We were picked up in a beautiful Mercedes Van and off we went. We visited Sintra and Cais Cais with a stop a the most western point in Europe. Pedro is a teacher and historian and we learned more in this 1 day than our entire trip. He took us for an authentic Portugese lunch with the locals. It was one of our best days of the trip and HIGHLY recommend this company. Very professional!!
Incredible Tour Guide
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.
