What people are saying about Almada
The trip is worth the trouble to get to it, but you need to be fit to get down and up the difficult path to the beach, wish they had stairs or lifts... Also the pick-up time is 2:30pm, instead of 1:30pm as listed in my Getyourguide voucher, wasted 1 hour waiting. Also the meeting place is inside the hostel, on the 2nd floor reception. You need to push a button to get into the building. All these were not mentioned anywhere, I had to call 5 times to finally get to the right meeting ponit and find the car/driver to get us to the beach. The beach is worth all the hassle though and the guide Manuel was very kind to wait for me and to help me carry my stuff going down and up the path.
Staying in carcevelos and looking for something to do in the evening we came across the sunset cruise on the web. My girlfriend thought it was just a tourist boat trip and had liked the sound of it so with just 2hrs notice we booked it and then hopped on the train for the short journey to the marina. To her surprise it was a yacht and she was a bit dubious to start with but absolutely loved the trip even helming for a bit. The guys running the show were really informative and really entertaining and spoke fluent Portuguese, French and English, Definitely the highlight of the holiday so far.
The experience was a perfect way to spend an evening in Lisbon, Portugal. It was incredible to see the city from that angle and even better to learn more about the history. It never felt rushed and we were able to enjoy the beautiful views and wine completely comfortably. The rest of the group was also very nice and we all enjoyed the evening. Highly recommend!
We had a fantastic 2 hours on board a yacht with only 8 other guests. We enjoyed 2 glasses of green wine, which was delicious and enjoyed hearing about the iconic buildings and monuments around the city’s coastline. The crew were really friendly and thoughtful, providing us with warm blankets when it became chilly. We would highly recommend this cruise!
We loved the crew on board; they were knowledgeable and fun and offered blankets when the wind picked up. The cruise was a perfect amount of time and we saw a new perspective of the city. Boat was clean, nice and comfortable.
