This is the tour you must take!!! Great tour guide, great locations, and great food. Rarely, would I take the same tour twice but this is one that would. Wife and I had a ball on this tour!!!
Our tour guide was outstanding and made every historical tidbit very interesting. Stunning views. Highly recommend.
Maddie was an excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable , informative, patient , funny and charming. we would definitely recommend her to anyone for a tour of Lisbon.
Fantastic tour!! João was extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer all the questions we had as first-time visitors to Portugal. My dad has mobility issues and found Sintra challenging but felt motivated to continue because João was so patient and engaging. Great experience, highly recommended!!!
Our guideDiogo was exceptional he was knowledgeable , friendly and attentive to the needs of all members of our group. His knowledge of the area saved us time and guided us toward the experience that was tailored to us.
The car was a recent high end model, it was roomy and comfortable.
Private tours are more expensive but we find that the flexibility and exclusive access to the guide is worth the difference.
Our tour guide Maddy was terrific.
Very knowledgeable and spoke perfect english.
Gave us a great tour!
This is an amazing place and a must see if you are in the Lisbon area. I highly recommend the private tour. We were escorted by Diogo and he is so informative but also fun to be around. I had read the reviews previous to booking this trip and all I can say is they are all true. I would highly recommend this tour and this tour guide.
The pick up from our hotel was on time which set the tone for the rest of the tour. It was well organised, the stop off sites very interesting and were in the category of not to be missed . The route was well thought out filling eight hours of sightseeing without problem. All was made a thoroughly enjoyable experience by our tour guide Madalena from Sintra Magik Tours, whose commentary, historical knowledge, information and interesting local awareness makes it very easy for me to recommend the activity to anybody. It would have been a more simple journey if we had used a smaller vehicle for our private tour than a 9 seater mini bus but that would be the only down comment I would make about the whole tour......and the narrow roads didn't bother our guide one little bit. Excellent tour.
Wonderful tour from start to finish. Loved the tour guide. She made the sights even more amazing. The whole day was fun - saw a lot but we were not rushed and enjoyed a wonderful lunch.
We took the all-day private tour with Diogo as our guide, and could not imagine a better experience. Sintra is a delightful and picturesque town, while the Pena Palace is spectacular. What made the trip truly special, though, were Diogos unflagging enthusiasm, attentiveness, and good humor. Hes extremely knowledgeable about the area and its history, and his selection of additional places to stope.g., pastry shop, restaurant for lunch, farmers marketwas impeccable. I feel deeply fortunate not to have taken this trip in any other way.
We had a wonderful time with Madalena. She was so knowledgable, competent and professional. Sintra and Pena Palace are amazing gems! And the views are spectacular. Madalena was accommodating and greatly contributed to our experience. We were never rushed, allowing us time on our own. We highly recommend anyone visiting Lisbon to take this tour.
The tour was very nice and although I'm handicapped when walking long distances our guide/chauffeur Lidia helped me by waiting fo my slow speed and she explained everything fro the king and Queens in Sintra and fabulous cost of Cascais and Estoril. When we come back next year we will look for her!l
Sintra is positively magical. A full day (if not two ) in itself. wish I would have skipped Cabo del Roca and Cascais and viewed another site in Sintra instead -perhaps one of the gardens.
We loved everything about this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun to spend a day with. He did everything possible to make the tour fun and informative, and even gave us lessons on how to take great pictures with an iPhone and helped us with our rudimentary Portuguse. He also steered us to a great restaurant and helped us figure out what to order. The history of this region and the people who built these amazing structures is fascinating, and architectural and natural beauty are simply breathtaking.
