    Experience was amazing the tour guide picked me up on time and was very explanatory about the city of Lisbon and the history of Portugal on out way to the boat. Boat ride was little bumpy but very comfortable. The tour guide was very kind to give us sea sick pill as soon as we got in the van to avoid the sea sick for those who have.
