About this activity
This two-hour boat cruise along the River Tagus in Lisbon goes from Alfama to Belém. You will travel by open boat and see the sights from the water. On-board commentary provided by the guide ensures you don’t miss anything. As soon as we depart, you will see the amazing waterfront area between Praça do Comércio and Cais do Sodré, Ribeira das Naus where many of the Portuguese explorers' ships were built. After that is the Praça do Comércio, the largest square in Lisbon and also one of the most iconic symbols of the city and it was rebuild after the great earthquake of 1755.

On this cruise, you have the opportunity to admire some of the most amazing monuments and buildings of the city: São Jorge Castle is a Moorish castle overlooking the historic center; Lisbon Cathedral is the oldest church in the city built in 1147; Alfama is the oldest district of Lisbon. The Church of Santa Engrácia is a 17th-century monument, in the 20th century it was converted into the National Pantheon. Christ the King is a Catholic monument erected in 1959. The 25 de Abril Bridge is a 2.3 km suspension bridge.

Also seen on this tour is Belém, which has two unique monuments and are World Heritage Sites: Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and Tower of Belém. They are two jewels of the Gothic Manueline style. Padrão dos Descobrimentos is a monument located along the river where ships departed to explore and trade with India and Orient, the monument celebrates the Portuguese Age of Discovery during the 15th and 16th centuries.

At the end of the sunset cruise, you will be dropped off where the tour began.

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!

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.
