Back along the north bank, you’ll have views of historic Lisbon, with the Terreiro do Paço and the Cais do Sodré and also the recently renovated waterfront and see the Museum of Electricity.

Great introduction to the city

This was an easy and relaxing way to get to know the city. Only downside was we were able to use our hotel internet to get Uber to take us there but we being from the USA and not having cell service we were unable to pull up uber to get back. We could not find a taxi either. Luckly there was a hotel near by and they called taxi for us. Otherwise very relaxing.

One of my favorite experiences I had in Lisbon.

Jose and Susana were such amazing and courteous hosts! The sailing tour was incredibly beautiful, the wine was delicious, and we had an amazing time getting to sail the river. If you plan on taking a sunset sail, you have to request these guys, they made the experience so much more amazing!
