Lisbon: 2-Hour Yacht Sailing Tour With Portuguese History

1. Lisbon: 2-Hour Yacht Sailing Tour With Portuguese History

Welcome aboard! Sharing what I'm passionate about, sailing as I show off the most beautiful places in the city, that's what makes me do this every day. Our tour begins at the Dock of Belém and goes straight to Praça do Comercio. From there we will sail towards Belém. During that time, you will be able to see several historical and fashion monuments in Lisbon, such as the 25 de Abril Bridge, Cristo Rei, the Electricity Museum, the Belém Tower, the Discoveries Monument, the MAAT and the Jerónimos Monastery. We will see Lisbon from a different perspective. While you relax on a 12-meter sailboat the crew will be delighted to share their knowledge with you. If you're curious about sailing, don't hesitate to let us know and we'll have to share some of our 2 decades of experience. I want my guests to feel “at home” as they sail. Enjoy the most special moment of the day with the best company and a glass of wine, the captain's offer. We look forward to having you aboard.

A very nice tour on the east side of the island and up in the mountains, where you can't get to without a car. A visit to the market, because there are no buses on Sundays to Santa de Serra, a jeep ride on a small road in the mountains was amazing, the guide was very friendly and told a lot about fruit trees and showed things

Everything was perfect, Luis was very kind, the tour lasted two hours but he left us some more time !!! I highly recommend this tour!

The tuk tuk tour was an experience. The driver Andrea did a great job.
