We had a 24 hour layover at Lisbon Airport so we decided to do this tour to fill some of our time there. The crew were all very friendly and the views were amazing. I'm a history buff so I ended up asking a lot of questions about what I saw (that hadn't been covered in their narrative) and the gentleman named Daniel was very knowledgeable. It's not an in-depth historical tour but it does give a great overview of Lisbon--if you're looking for beauty and relaxation, with some wine thrown in, then this is a great option!
Great tour guides and the wine was flowing freely.Lisbon from the river was breathtaking. All aboard were in great spirits
One of our favorite memories in Lisbon. Highly recommend! Just the right balance of interesting information of the area and extremely relaxing. The wine was lovely and there's nothing better than seeing the sun go down on the Tagus River. Thanks for a great experience!!
Joao was our host on this sightseeing cruise. He along with the crew were pleasant, accommodating and respectful. They answered our questions and made every effort to make sure we were comfortable. The cruise is just the right amount of time, relaxing, and a must do when you visit Lisbon.
Our first introduction to Lisbon was the lovely Tagus River Subset Cruise on a historic sailboat. The cruise took us past all the major sites, whose history and significance were described admirably by our guide, Joana. In the cool dusk, we were kept comfortable with warm blankets and an unlimited supply of the local wine. After a long transatlantic journey, the lulling sailboat and the glowing sunset were a perfect introduction to Lisbon and its beautiful environs.
Excellent tour guide. Great fun. Historic boat made for a better experience. Would strongly recommend as a great way to see Lisbon from the water
This is an amazing tour. It was a last minute decision to take this cruise and I'm just glad we did!
