Full description
Make the most of your time in Lisbon with this one hour tour along the coast of the Tagus River. You will see up close, from the vantage point of the river, some of the fortresses between Lisbon and Carcavelos that played important roles in the history of Portugal.

Starting at Belém Dock, you'll begin the tour by going past the most iconic fortress of them all - The Tower of Belém, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then, you'll sail on towards Cascais and see the Caxias fort, then the Carcavelos fortress, which was one of the main defense points of Lisbon. If the weather allows, finish off the tour by sailing around a fortress that sits in the middle of the river - Bugio Fortress, perfectly circular, which is now a lighthouse.

Don't miss this tour - you won't get these views of the fortresses from land! Join this tour for some unforgettable memories and an exciting afternoon activity on the water.
