        Unforgettable Introduction to Fátima and Óbidos
        Victor picked us up from the airport exactly when and where agreed upon and took care of our luggage. We had an amazingly informative and spiritual experience in Fatima before having a unique and unforgettable lunch and then heading to Óbidos for an experience with some of the medieval history of the area. Then Victor offered dinner recommendations on the way to our hotel. He was knowledgeable about history and culture and had a great sense of humor. We would highly recommend.

        Great day in Fatima and Obidos
        What a great day exploring Fátima and Óbidos. Our guide was fantastic and did a wonderful job explaining the history behind the cities and the architecture of the buildings. André, our guide, made this a great experience.

        Great experience with Portugal Magik Tours!
        We had an incredible 6 days of touring with Francisco of Portugal Magik Tours. We went all over Lisbon and the area, including Sintra and Cascais, Navare, and Obidos, and then were driven to Belmonte, where we stayed overnight, and then were driven to Madrid, stopping in Salamanca. Francisco was extremely knowledge, and very nice and easy to be around. He was accomodating to our interests and wishes, and personalized the experiences for us. I could not have asked for a better guide. The agency was also very easy to deal with, and we started with a zoom call that helped us to determine the best itinerary for our interests and needs. They were responsive during the planning process to any questions that I had. Francisco was always rights on time to pick us up, and the cars were either Mercedes vans or sedans - very comfortable. They gave us very good advice to get our tickets to the Sintra Pena Palace ahead of time for the 9:30 entry - it would have been very crowded had we gone any later.

        Private tour for group of 25 pre cruise
        Great tours with Portugal Magik. We had a group of 25 and did 3 days of tours. Sintra, Fatima and then Lisbon. Picked us up at our hotel each morning and dropped us off at the end of the tour. On the final day they took us to our cruise ship after a tour of Lisbon. Tour guide was knowledgeable and accommodated all our needs.

        The Best
        The Best ever!! I honestly don’t know where to begin. I was very skeptical at first with hiring a tour company and being so far away in CA. There are so many scams. Magik was consistent with responding to my concerns and just when I didn’t think I’d go forward they came up with an itinerary around my schedule to suit me and worked with my price quota. They matched my husband and I up with Miguel who was fantastic. We arrived in Lisbon at night and being picked up in a brand new Mercedes van with water waiting was perfect after traveling for so many hours. Miguel was patient and always made sure we were learning. Honestly if you’re contemplating hiring a tour guide or driver, look no further. It was worth every penny. Parking is horrible and trying to squeeze through those narrow streets were challenging. The best ever!! Thank you Miguel. We will see you soon. The Spencers’!

        Book it now!!
        We booked this 3 day tour of the Lisbon area and were beyond thrilled with it!! Our guide, Joao, was so attentive to our preferences, personalizing our tour. Joaa's knowledge of Portugal's history was fantastic. We packed so much into our 3 days, but we never felt rushed. One the highlights of tour was the FOOD! I am not a fan of seafood, which is definitely a Portuguese specialty. Joao selected restaurants that had a wide selection for this picky eater. Our vacation continued up to the Porto area, but Lisbon was the star of the trip!! I would give this tour a 10/10, I would give Joao a 20/10!!

        An Unforgettable and Magical Portugal Trip!
        Words cannot really explain and describe how wonderful a time me and family had during our pilgrimage to Fatima and the extended holiday and trip we had in Portugal . This was made possible by Portugal Magic Private Tours who actually listened and helped with our trip itinerary. What made even more special was the guide who was appointed to us ,Victor ! He was the best and made the trip even more enjoyable, rememberable,special,very personal and was more like a friend and family than just a guide . His knowledge and experience was everything one could ask for as guide and he knew how to cater to what our interest were buy getting to know how he could make this trip even more special .I would definitely recommend this company and guide to anyone who is thinking about experiencing Portugal . My mum is 80 and she has difficulty walking fast and up and down stairs .Our Victor took extra care of my mum and made sure she had the same experience as My sister and I .He made sure she was always comfortable and he even went out of his way to make sure my mum did not have to endure hard climbs but yet had the experience we did and for that we are ever grateful for the professionalism set by both Portugal Magik and our Guide Victor . We will definitely use them again for our next trip to Portugal and Spain, Obrigado our new found friends!

        Wonderful trip to Fatima, excellent tour guide
        Wonderful! Wonderful! Miguel S., our tour guide was the best, he went above and beyond to help our mobile impaired elderly mother. He was full of information and funny, great company. Please ask for Miguel S. when booking trips. The trip was amazing and memorable. Definitely recommend. Look forward to booking our next trip with Portugal Magik.

        Andre was the best!
        On our first day, we had Andre take us on a full-day private guided tour of Lisbon, which hit all the highlights. Andre was incredibly knowledgeable about the history (and which pastry shop is the best) and passionate about sharing his enthusiasm with us. He was flexible about how much time we spent where and easy-going. On Day 2, he took us to Sintra, Cabo da Roca (the westernmost place in continental Europe), and his hometown of Cascais, a lovely beach town. The communication was excellent throughout - from when we made inquiries to when he picked us up at our hotel. They made very helpful suggestions, such as booking the first time slot to visit Sintra to avoid the long lines. Andre knew the traffic patterns well, so we also took the backroads to visit the cute Village of Sintra without getting caught in what seemed to be a mile-long line of cars. We would highly recommend Andre as your guide and Portugal Magik as your tour organizer.

        A Trip and Experience Beyond My Expectations!
        Our group of 6 booked a private tour of Portugal visiting Lisbon, Porto and the Douro River Valley. Diogo was our guide for the entire trip. I picked Portugal Magic based solely from reviews so I was a little nervous. Don’t hesitate or be nervous about booking this company. Prior to our trip, the company was very responsive to questions, flexible and accommodating to all our requests. Once we arrived, we met Diogo. Diogo was very knowledgeable about Portugal, polite, fun, on time, and a joy to spend our vacation with. He made the trip one of our most memorable experiences. By the end of the trip, I felt I had a gained a friend. I can’t say enough good things about Diogo or our experience with Portugal Magik!

        Portugal Magik Tours Never Disappoints!
        Our family is lucky enough to visit Portugal on a semi-regular basis and we have booked seven tours with Portugal Magik in Lisbon and Porto. They are always phenomenal guides who love their country and want to share it with you. Just a delight! Very prompt and wonderful people with whom it is a joy to share the day. This tour is especially memorable - Sintra is one of our favorite places on earth! Very special and well worth a visit.

        Tour of Tomar and Lisbon
        Our driver arrived early and spoke wonderful English. His vehicle was spotless and very comfortable. Francisco was very knowledgeable about the history of Tomar and we made the best of the day despite heavy rainfall. Would highly recommend Francisco as a tour guide/ driver.

      I couldn't find a tour company that went where I wanted to go so I booked a private tour (I was traveling alone) and they let me customize it to go to Sintra, Cascais and Regaleira. If you travel to this area, do it with Joe! He is knowledgeable and so much fun to spend the day with! We went to a great restaurant by Apple Beach for lunch. Joe picked me up from my hotel which was really nice. I learned a lot and made a new friend! This day trip was a highlight of my whole time in Portugal.

      Best-ever customized family private tour. I had a very ambitious list of things we wanted to see and do, and they made it all happen seamlessly! I can’t wait to travel back to Portugal and will absolutely book with them again. They arranged everything to maximize our day and avoid long lines, etc. A+

      We were so happy to have Andy [Diogo] both days, He took us all around Lisbon the first day and to Sintra the next day! He took us to the custard tart bakery, his favorite places to eat, the Moorish castle, a private winery visit and more! He also showed us the beach town of Cascais! He was so knowledgeable and nice to talk to! We really enjoyed our first time in Lisbon because of these tours! We never would have been able to find such wonderful experiences on our own. Door to door service was great! thank you!

      The folks at Sintra Magik were exceptional from time of booking to completion of our fantastic private day trip from Lisbon which included visits to Cascais, Sintra, Belem, the western most point of mainland Europe and several gorgeous stops along the western coast of Portugal! We also visited a family-owned wine cellar for a wine tasting and a local seafood restaurant for lunch. THIS WAS MY SOME OF THE BEST SEAFOOD I'VE HAD IN MY LIFE. Our guide, Diogo, took me and my two girlfriends on a private tour of all of the above and it was our most favorite day out of our 10 days spent in Spain and Portugal this past April. Diogo was friendly, flexible, knowledgeable and SO MUCH FUN! We would highly recommend this tour company and especially our tour guide Diogo!

      We purchased the private tour from Lisbon to Sintra.
      What a lovely trip! The driver was kind, professional and made our tour perfect! He shared his extensive knowledge of his country and made us feel like family before the day was over! We look forward to visiting Portugal again and would definitely book another tour!

      Our guide was Jose. We were promptly picked up at our hotel in Lisbon in a very comfortable Mercedes van. Jose did an excellent job of pointing out points of interest and giving us background inforomation on history as well as current culture/politics etc. The trip to Sintra was wonderful. The castle was beautiful, the day was beautiful, the information provided by Jose was very informative. Jose even made sure that he took group pictures of us. We had lunch at A casa do Luis in Cabo da Roca - it was a great experience. The food was superb and the feeling was one of truly experiencing the local culture and cuisine. A fabulous day overall. I recommend this group very highly.

      Thanks Jose for a great day!

      This was our splurge of the trip and it was WELL worth the money spent. Joao picked us up early in the morning to make sure we made it past the lines for the castle. All day my friend and I staged photos and silly videos (guilty milennial here) and Joao patiently and happily took as many photos as we wished for. He is knowledgeable of the rich history of each place we went to and relayed stories of old as we curiously hopped from one spot to another. He went above and beyond to show us some extra spots on the tour. He is personable and fun. My only suggestion for the company would be to include ticket prices and food within the tour so we're not paying out of pocket day of. Book with Joao!
