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!

Wonderful company and a fantastic guide – May 2017

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.

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon

Our party of 6 was picked up promptly at our hotel and whisked to Sintra while Rui/Roy provided an interesting historical context. As the Palace is very jammed with eager tourists, Rui did a great job in pulling us aside to continue with our history lesson so we didn’t feel like we were part of the great throng. He also created some lovely photo ops. The rest of the day — going to lunch, Cabo da Roca and Cascais for icecream was perfect as was the drive back to town along the coast. Rui was engaging and charming. It was a perfect day to go to Sintra. Thank you, Rui.

My wife and I have one word to describe our day-long walking and driving tour through Lisbon: FANTASTIC. Miguel was right on time, and he worked hard throughout the course of the long day to make this a special experience. We did not feel like he was “on the clock” but rather it felt like a friend was showing us around a city that he loves. Miguel provided us with a thoughtful and thorough tour of Lisbon. We felt like we came away with a much, much better understanding of Portugal, and the history of the people, country, religion, arts, and architecture — all while getting a good sense of the geography and beauty of Lisbon. Miguel was tireless in bringing us all around the city and made our day with him one of exploration and learning. We ended up spending 4 more days in Lisbon after our tour, and we constantly remarked to each other about how much we had seen with Miguel and learned from him about Lisbon and about Portuguese culture and history. He was good-spirited throughout the day, and was open to sharing his own experiences and to shifting what we were doing that day based on ongoing discussions and learning more about our interests. He gave us with a number of other great recommendations that we followed up on afterwards.

We would not hesitate to recommend Miguel to anyone visiting your City. Thank you for making the arrangements for Miguel to assist us.

This was the best tour we took while in Europe. Miguel was an awesome guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. We were expecting a 3 hour day and we went several more. We were able to bypass lines and he made the most of our day in Lisbon. I would definitely recommend Miguel and Sintra Magik to anyone. Thank you Miguel for a great day.
