Lovely end to our Lisbon trip though it might be a good idea to do it earlier as Nigel gave us some good suggestions about things to do so will just have to go back! The drinks were plentiful and the snacks were delicious! Had a go at steering the boat too. Nice group of people on board. Really enjoyed it and would recommend!

I enjoyed Rodrigo and the walking tour to Alfama. We went to several great locations and finally we made it to the Fado & dinner. The Fado was great, the ladies were amazing, to short, so I was really upset about that. I didn’t like the food at the Restaurante Sao Rafael. It was terrible.

It was a great experience! The guide (Teresa) was really nice and she was trying her best to offer us a good experience. I really recommend.
Leave the hectic pace of Lisbon city center behind and journey to one of the city's best kept secrets to kayak along the coast. Prepare your kayaks and other equipment on arrival and begin your journey to a wild and undiscovered beach. Reconnect with the natural world at the coastal Nature Park of Arrábida, situated between Sesimbra, Setúbal, Palmela and the sea.

Get breathtaking views of the rugged cliffs and emerald-blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Return to Lisbon, amazed that paradise was only 40 minutes away!
To all those who love adventure this is for you!! A jam packed day, kayaking the beaches surrounding the Nature Park. Nunu and Hermes our guides were simply awesome. They also prepared lunch for us in a beautiful secluded beach of Arrabida. Definitely worth every Euro! Unfortunately the weather was a bit ugly with rain and clouds in the beginning but then the sun came out and it turned into a beautiful paradise :)! Thank you so much to both of you :)
The best way to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of a city built facing the water is by boat. Glide along the Tagus river and prepare to feel amazed by Lisbon's splendid palaces, museums, monuments, churches, bridges, gardens and warehouses, which all magnificently line the waterfront. This journey, by sailboat or motorboat, will bring the magic of Lisbon alive. Seeing Lisbon by sunset is truly a unique experience. See how city changes color and the smells become more aromatic. Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine as you sail through the city.
Absolutely great trip. We really loved this, plenty of wine and snacks for the duration of the trip. The guys were lovely and very knowledgeable. Would thoroughly recommend and will tell all my friends and family to do this. Very relaxing. Would recommend taking a jumper or jacket as once the sun has set it can feel a bit breezy but they did give out blankets too. Thank you for a fabulous experience
