Our Story

Inspired & Passionate Travelers

About 20 years ago, I had the dream of creating a unique tour company in Portugal, exclusively focused on visitors coming to Portugal from abroad, interested in learning the best of the country. My passion for Portugal and history

10 years later, with my passion for Portugal and history, I finally launched Portugal Magik Tours, initially focused in Sintra and Lisbon , with just myself, and one single vehicle. The big demand for tours, made me expand to all regions of Portugal, and some parts of Spain also. The company increased from just a single person, to a larger team of 12 members, and also did increase our fleet as well to 10 modern vehicles (Mercedes-Benz).

Our Mission

Journeys worth taking

While we started with single-day tours, we noticed that the majority of our customers were looking for multi-day tours, and someone that could assist them 24/7 during their stay in Portugal. Since then, we have been focusing on offering itinerary proposals for 5,7,10,12 days or more, with activities and planning, providing the best hotel and restaurant recommendations as well.
