Wonderful experience in Portugal – May 2017
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.

Review of: Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon
Neighbors highly recommended the private Golden Triangle Tour once we arrived in Lisbon. We booked immediately. The tour was everything it states and more.
Sintra, Cabo de Roca and Cascais were beautiful and amazing but we must say that the top-notch service was the very best !
Andy was prompt, knowledgable , interesting, fun , an excellent driver and tour guide. We loved his great amounts of knowledge and his interest in learning and sharing yet more. His enthusiasm was contagious so we too wanted to learn more.
Sentra’s private tour afforded us a “skip-the’line” style as Andy navigated us around larger tour groups.
Our day was one we shall never forget.
Thank you to Andy, Sintra Magik tours and our neighbors who referred us.
We highly recommend this tour as we know you will love it too.

One of the most enjoyable vacations I have been on – May 2017
Gonzalo and Andy were wonderful and knowledgeable guides
My family and I had an amazing experience with Gonzalo and Andy in Lisbon, Sintra, and Pena Palace. I was extremely impressed with their knowledge of Portuguese history, and the subtleties I would have missed had we toured by ourselves. They have deep connections with the locals, which gave us the opportunity to experience things that would have been missed by typical tourists. Sintra Majik made Portugal one of the most enjoyable vacations I have been on; I’d highly recommend to those traveling in groups.

The best part of our vacation – June 2017
The best part of our vacation! We had an amazing guide Diogo. He was so knowledgeable and has such a love of his country it made us love Portugal and want to return as soon as possible. He had everything planned and we would have never seen any of the beautiful places without him. He coordinated an amazing Port tasting and a wonderful lunch during our day. He showed us beautiful places and shared their history. Thank you so much for creating an experience we will never forget!
