the guide was great, husband and wife both very friendly. Not much documentary, they let you be and just come around to offer drinks. Blankets are also provided. Only I would have preferred the trip to be shorter. It was waaaaay too long, you start feeling dizzy, not to mention how cold it is with all the wind. Also we were four different groups on the same boat, so only two could take the nice seats, the other two had to just sit around the boat which isn’t super comfortable.

Wonderful experience with this boat tour!! Unfortunately we did not get to see the sunset due to bad weather but that did not take away any of the joy. The guide(s) are super friendly and helpful and on board you get offered lovely drinks and a small snacks while riding the river and seeing some of Lisbon’s most beautiful sights. Would definitely recommend this amazing boat tour!

Amazing and unique

It was just great. We had a wonderful and an amazing experience. Andre and Daniel did everything for us to make our trip as comfortable as possible. It was a great surprise for my husbands birthday. We‘ll surely book boat me up again. Thank you to the crew, also Cheila for the organisation and assistance.
