Outstanding Full Day Tour of Lisbon – January 2021

Outstanding Full Day Tour of Lisbon – January 2020
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.

The best money we ever spent – May

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 2021

Highly Recommend Sintra Magik Service
We booked a private guided tour to Fatima with Sintra Magik and were very satisfied with the experience. Diogo 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 impressive was that Diogo gave us excellent recommendations for other excursions we were subsequently taking on our own.

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.
