Beautiful Lisbon – November
We booked a private day tour with Sintra Magic Tours fro the day we got of the Windstar in Lisbon. This was ore second private trip with them.This was ore 3rd. time in Lisbon and we had certain things we wanted to see.Miguel met us at our hotel about 930 am and we returned about 830 pm.He had a list of what we wanted to see and we did it all.He was fabulous, explained the layout of the city which then made it much easier to understand, and especially on our own for the next few days.He took us to a local place for lunch which we would have never found on our own and it was great. We could not thank him enough, he was knowledgeable about everything.This is the way to see a city. The tour company was awesome as well, whatever we wanted was what we did.

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!

Diogo is the best guide – April
Diogo is the best guide!
We had Diogo Vasco as our guide for three days and he was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable and fun….his English was flawless and he was able to explain things so well, enabling us to learn so much about all the sights we saw. He was also able to joke around with us so the trip was full of laughter. We have been fortunate enough to travel a lot and have had a lot of experience with tour guides…Diogo was by far the best tour guide we have ever had. Also, the communications beforehand with the company was excellent and very timely.

Tremendous Guides, memorable stay
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.
Excellent tour of Lisbon
I had about 5 hours to spend in Lisbon and Pedro of Sintra Magik Private Tours helped me make the most of my time! The best way to see the city is to have a half-day (or full-day if you have the time) private tour….And Pedro is an excellent tour guide since he can provide you with sparkling conversation as well as the facts and history of the city. Don’t waste your time with large-group tours and hire Sintra Magik for your private tour of Lisbon.
