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!

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.

Wonderful experience in Portugal – March 2019
Wonderful experience in Portugal!
Excellent tour experience with Diogo! We had a fantastic three day tour of Southern Portugal. He knew all the best sites and restaurants to visit. Diogo spoke English very well and took care of all the negotiating at stores, restaurants, etc. His knowledge of Portugal and ability to get us into places for private tours was amazing. He has a great sense of humor and is always perceptive to the needs of the group.
