Beautiful Lisbon – November 2018
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.

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!

Incredible Tour Guide – May 2017
We booked a tour of Sintra, Pena Palace and the Golden Triangle through Sintra Magik. They were very accommodating of our scheduling needs. Diogo Costa was our private tour guide, and we found him to be awesome! He arrived at our hotel promptly at the scheduled time and had bottled water in his car for us through the day. He is a native of the Sintra area and intimately knowledgable of the entire area. Diogo has a very relaxed, congenial manner which made it easy and comfortable to spend the day with him. The pace of the trip was perfect and our guide was always considerate about having us see and do what we wanted. Diogo also arranged for us to have lunch at a wonderful place in Sintra. He called ahead so that the food would be ready and therefore optimize our sightseeing time. While he is Portuguese, his English language skills are impeccable. I would give Diogo Costa and Sintra Magik Tours my highest recommendation if you’re looking for a private tour.

Great tour with Miguel – November 2018
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.

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.
