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!

Outstanding Full Day Tour of Lisbon – November 2017
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.

Perfect day trip to Sintra – Thanks Miguel – May 2017

First time my partner and I had ever booked a private tour. Very, very glad that we did. Miguel was knowledgable about Sintra and the Lisbon area and simply an all round great guide – it was more like being shown around by a friend than a guide which really made the day that much more enjoyable.
In short: book a tour, request Miguel, you won’t regret it.
