perfect tour

Very nice tour with very nice staff. we were told a lot about Lisbon. Its history, sites, nightlife, architecture... Portugese, French, English spoken, funny and reliable. The boat itself was very big and beautiful. enough space for all of the 12 passengers. Even a small snack and a drink was provided. We highly recommend booking this tour by Lisbon by boat.

Absolutely idyllic, blue skies, calm waters and great crew members.

This was a very well organised and hospitable tour of the river Tagus on a modern, well kept sailing boat. Views of Lisbon such as the Belem Tower, the Monument, the new MAAT gallery extension and the old town can only really be appreciated from the water's edge. The crew positioned the boat well in order for us to observe the wonderful colour spectrum produced by the romantic sunset.

Nice way to explore the city from a different perspective

We had a lovely tour with Pedro and Monica! They are very friendly and have a lot of knowledge about the city, history and surroundings which they shared with a smile on their face! Its a nice way to explore the city from a different perspective. Although the sun was not shining, we had a nice afternoon!
