Only short distance from Cascais, around 20 min driving, this is one of the best tours to explore the amazing landscape of Sintra, and learn why Sintra has been always considered one of the most beautiful, magical and romantic places in Europe. Named Unesco World Heritage since 1995, it’s currently the most popular village in Portugal, for customers visiting Lisbon.
On this tour, you will have a chance to see some of the best attractions, starting with a visit to the romantic Royal Pena National Palace, considered in 2015 by EBD the Most Beautiful Castle in Europe, built on the ruins of an old 16th century monastery, with breathtaking views overlooking the Moorish Castle and the Natural Park. The tour will continue with a visit to the old medieval village, including free time and stop for lunch (not included).
After lunch, the private tour will continue with a visit to the most quiet and non-touristy are of Sintra, the west part of the village, where we will have a chance to visit The Cork Convent of Capuchos, one of the most beautiful Convents of Portugal, nestled in the middle of the nature, built 500 years ago for the Capuchin monks/friars. The last stop will be done at Cabo da Roca, Europe’s Westernmost Point on the coastal cliffs of Sintra, passing on the way around several other beautiful and outstanding palaces and old, historical mansions of Sintra.

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra Day Trip from Lisbon
My friend and I did a private tour of Sintra with John. We had a really great experience – we appreciated the flexibility of a private tour and being able to see the specific sites we wanted to see. We were really grateful that we got to Pena Palace early before most other tourists arrived – it was great planning on their part and allowed us to maximize our experience there. One of my favorite parts was the off the beaten path stop at the convent, which was like nothing else I’ve experienced and was really peaceful. I enjoyed talking to the guide about Portuguese culture and getting in touch with the true Portuguese experience. We also ate at a great restaurant for lunch when we were there, and John knew the owners personally, so we felt very welcome. All in all a wonderful day and we were glad we did a private tour – Sintra was quite a magical place!

Diogo is the best guide – April 2019
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.

The best money we ever spent – May 2019
Loved Pena Palace !!
On May 10, while in Portugal for my son’s wedding, me my brother and sister in law went on a tour of Lisbon and Sintra with Miguel. It was the best money we ever spent. Miguel was so knowledgable, friendly and easy going. We had a wonderful unforgettable day! I booked the tour at home in NY based on the fantastic reviews. Susan Lynch

Highly Recommend Sintra Magik Service – May 2019
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.

Wonderful company and a fantastic guide – May 2019
Day tour of Sintra and Cascais
First get a wonderful company then get a fantastic guide, Magik Tours and Miguel filled the bill perfectly. My wife and I were picked up at our hotel, a little earlier than expected, but that was fine and turned out well. Miguel obviously knows his stuff. The Mercedes minibus was very clean and gave us a comfortable ride with easy views out. Miguel was informative, helpful and very entertaining. After Sintra we went round the village on foot and were taken to a Port tasting, very nice. Then lunch was arranged at a fish restaurant on the way to the coast. I can only say that my wife and I found the whole meal a sublime experience. We must thank Miguel again.
We then went to the farthest point west on the continental land mass. Very interesting, then on to Cascais, A very interesting coastal village forced fo grow and change it’s character, not totally, but change is visible.
After this we were driven back to our hotel. A really good day, do it if you can, you won’t regret it.
