Me and my sister we absolutely loved the speed boat trip. Staff was beyond attentive, kind, friendly and carrying. If you like to see the Lisbon from different side and you like a bit of adrenaline, for sure book this boat. Sceneries are just amazing. We would definitely do it again. Thank you.

Everything Well organized. Nice drinks, friendly guides. They know a lot about the Lisbon history and were fluent English speakers. We had a great time. And it was fun to be able to lay down on the boat. They had blankets for after the sunset when it gets colder on the boat. Obrigado!
