What people are saying about Lisbon Metropolitan Area

The trainer was such a nice person, explained everything very well and the whole experience felt exciting but very safe. I would definitely do this again. Thank you, Nuno!

My girlfriend and I rode on the bus to all the stops and then got off at the one we wanted to see more of. Our day was wonderful and learned more history about the city.

A great place to visit with kids. Amazing exhibits. Very family friendly. Don’t forget to catch a ride on the Skyline that starts right behind the aquarium.

Easy purchase online (did it on the hop on bus w/wifi). Didn't have to wait in line (the line was long). Beautiful aquarium.

Nice place, lots of animals. An aquarium to visit without a doubt!
