A Lifetime of Memories – December 2017
Our two days with Miguel were the highlights of our recent Iberian vacation. We were quickly won over by his charm and encyclopedic knowledge of the history, culture, and lore of Portugal. He tailored the tours to our own interests, and we can’t wait to come back: a special country and a special person.

Great tour with Miguel – November 2018
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.

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon
We booked a private tour to Sintra, Cabo da Roca, and Cascais with Sintra Magik and it was one of the best days of our trip! We could not have asked for a better tour guide than Miguel. He was so knowledgeable and friendly, and he continuously went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and ensuring we experienced the best of Portugal. It certainly seemed like Miguel went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable in Lisbon and in Portugal and we are extremely grateful that Miguel was our tour guide. He always provided us with options for how we could spend our time so the private tours felt very customized to our preferences. Our group joked that having Miguel as our tour guide felt like just hanging out with a friend – he is a great host!
We enjoyed our private tour to Sintra and Cascais with Miguel so much that we immediately booked a second private tour with Miguel for later that week to Evora and Monsaraz. Both the Sintra tour and Monsaraz were fantastic and I’d highly recommend them. Well worth it to splurge on the private tours!
Overall we had a great time with Miguel and got to see many beautiful parts of Portugal with so many different experiences which we would have otherwise missed if not for Sintra Magik.

Review of: Private Fatima Tour from Lisbon
My husband and I took a private tour to Fatima for the day with Andy. He was on time and was very friendly in route. We enjoyed our morning at Fatima where Andy was helpful in directing us while there but respectful of our wanting private time there as well. I especially enjoyed the local aspect of the tour with little extras along the way. We stopped for lunch at a local venue after touring the home of the children from the apparitions. We even had time to visit the local manufacturing facility of the Fatima statues, rosaries etc. where I was able to purchase genuine Fatima goods. Andy even took us for a tour in the back to see the artists working on the statues. On our way home we stopped in the small town of Obidos which was an added bonus and a delightful afternoon. My husband especially enjoyed touring this “walled” town. If I were to travel back to Lisbon, I would absolutely request Andy for another tour. I have no complaints at all!

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.
