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.

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.

Extremely knowledgeable and informative – May 2017
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.

Memorable time while in Fatima & Portugal – May 2017
Although we arrived @ Lisbon Airport 2 hours before our tour begins on 5/11/17, our tour guide Andy picked us up a little after 8 AM and drove us directly to Fatima to begin our private tour of the shrine of our Lady of Fatima and thoroughly walked us through the grounds, explaining & pointing out the exact sight where our Lady appeared to the 3 shepherd children 100 years ago where a little chapel is now erected and where people come to honor our Virgin Mary. We got to go inside & visit the main shrine, the newly constructed shrine standing right across the original shrine, the site where a piece of the Berlin Wall was donated to Fatima, light candles & pray for our family & friends. Due to time constrict, and wanting to squeeze in a visit to the bleeding Eucharist at the Holy Miracle church in Santarem on our way back to Lisbon, we skip the Fatima library. Andy brought us the house where Francisco, Jacinta & Lucia grew up & we got to also walk down to the well site here the angel appeared to these 3 shepherd children followed by a delicious lunch @ a local restaurant nearby & a visit to the factory where all the religious artifacts such as statues, rosaries & many other items are manufactured locally & sold at local shops & shipped worldwide. Our last stop was Santarem-holy-miracle-church. Although We did not get to privately view the bleeding eucharist exposed in a pear shape monstral, we feel blessed to enter the Holy Miracle church & be able to see the blessed Sacrament & feel the presence of our Lord God from the back of the church while a holy mass was in progress. We were dropped off at our hotel at the end of the tour.
During the long drive back, we got to know more about our guide Andy who is not only very knowledgeable on Portugal history, he is also very friendly & funny, about his passion.
Andy was very caring & attentive to our needs since my husband has mobility issues, Andy helped with pushing my husband’s wheelchair around and allow us extra time to say a prayer and take pictures.
Although we couldn’t get into Fatima on 5/12 or 5/13 to witness Pope Francis canonized Francisco & Jacinta, since all of the semi private & private tours were sold out, Gonzalo @ Sintra Magik Tour opened up a full day private Fatima/Santarem tour just for us on 5/11/17 & also arranged to have us picked up at the airport instead of us having to go the downtown pickup location, we are very grateful for such personalized & customized services to cater to our personal needs. We highly recommend Sintra Magik Tour to everyone and espescially anyone with mobility issues.
Thank you, Gonzalo & Andy for providing us with such a memorable time while in
Fatima & Santarem, Portugal.
We will definitely use Sintra Magik Tour when we return to Portugal for other tours.
