The boat lasted approx 45mins stopping at 3 stops around the April24 bridge. It doesnt go far and comes back to start point however you can exit at any stop. even the other side of the bridge. Best views are from top of the Jesus statue and couple other buildings at Belem.

Barbra was an amazing guide, we had an all girls group! YAAAS! We clicked the first time we saw her, she was very detailed about everything, very reassuring. We made sure to be on time and not in heels! ( private joke) Honestly, we could not thank her enough for an amazing memorable day. The tour is 1000% worth it, the line for the palace was so long it would have wasted so much time but luckily we got there early and missed it. Back to Barbra she made our trip if we ever come back to lisbon we would honestly book this tour just to be with her. Thank you so much Barbra if you are reading this and to her manager you have an amazing employee! Thanks again!

It was an enjoyable way to get to know the coast along Lisboa. Refreshments were available but not included in the price. It gave me a good idea of where principal sites were in relationship to the main square. They played great fado music on the cruise and that added to the ambiance. Descriptions of the different sites were given in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese. Take a light jacket or sweater because even in early June, when I went, it can get cold if you're outside on the upper deck.
