This was a new experience. I liked it but no warning on getting wet :( Plus was hoping to have a snack on board but no food or drink allowed, bummer.
Great way to do the usual sightseeing. Awesome for children. Very unusual and unique. A foating bus will definitely float your boat!
Very poor representation at the sales office .... not helpful and seemed to be unhappy in position .attitude and energy with client communication was extremely poor . Example as was said literally: “ if u speak I can help u” . where was the hello, may I help u?!? Not impressive customer care !!! Makes u not want to participate in tour.
We had a great time on this tour. It is the best way to see Lisbon from the river especially the Tower of Belem and other memorials nearby. It was well worth the price. Since the excursion starts and ends near the famous bridge, you have to get there and is a good 20 minutes by taxi to get there from the city center. I can tell you it is well worth the taxi ride. You could also take the train but I was happy to find a taxi and it was a cheap price-less than 10 euros each way. You will not be disappointed on this boat/bus tour. I sat on the right side which was only better because that's the side the Tower of Belem is on when you pass it and you cannot change your seats once your'e on.
Good crew. Fun, easy trip and look at Lisbon. Lasts about 90 mins...
hippo! Hippo! So much fun! Don't hesitate to book this tour. It's a great length about an hour and a half, fun, energetic and gives you a great casual view of the City. Our tour guide was Marta who had a great sense of humour, spoke four languages and kept us all entertained the whole time! Just a tip, be sure to book the specific time of your tour. I didn't read the confirmation email and assumed it was like the hop on hop off tours and you could show up at any time...it's not. You must confirm the time in advance. If you do book this tour, be sure to film the splash into the water...too much fun!
This was a great way to see the city! I would recommend doing it within the first day of being in Lisbon. It is great for getting to see how the city is laid out and which sights you'd like to go back to! Our tour guides were Anna and Phillip. They were amazing!! Very entertaining and accommodating.
