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.

Highly Recommend Sintra Magik Service – May 2017
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.

Perfect day trip to Sintra – Thanks Miguel – May 2017
First time my partner and I had ever booked a private tour. Very, very glad that we did. Miguel was knowledgable about Sintra and the Lisbon area and simply an all round great guide – it was more like being shown around by a friend than a guide which really made the day that much more enjoyable.
In short: book a tour, request Miguel, you won’t regret it.

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!!

So very much enjoyed our private guided tour of Sintra with our wonderful guide, Diogo!
He knew all the best places & secret trails in Sintra! We enjoyed a delicious typical Portuguese lunch with him & toured Palacio Nacional da Pena, CaboDa Roca, & Cascais! Enjoyed our time with him so much we booked him again the next morning for Lisbon city highlights! I highly recommend both tours with Diogo! He is very knowledgeable of the Portuguese history & described it all in an entertaining fashion!
