    A fantastic and enjoyable experience

    My wife and I had the most enjoyable 2hrs sailing, the crew were very knowledgable and friendly a great sightseeing experience with some interesting and usual tourist sights being seen from a different perspective, from the water. Some other interesting sites and explanations very thought provoking. A very worthwhile experience to book on an excellent well handled yacht. Highly recommend booking, look forward to returning for the sunset sail

    Nice boat trip

    Unfortunately, the trip didn't start out too well. The day before we got an email from getYourGuide that the meeting point has changed. On closer inspection, however, both addresses turned out to be identical. We waited at 10:30 am at the meeting point. Around 11:00 o'clock two gentlemen came and told us that we were in the wrong place. We then had to run for another 5 minutes. In our opinion, this is GYG's fault. After that everything was very nice. Completely relaxed. We would have liked more information from the skipper. The welcome drink was then served on the return trip. The trip was definitely longer than 2 hours. We can definitely recommend it.

    A must do for any visitor to Lisbon

    A wonderful way to see the sights of Lisbon and a very relaxing two hours on a lovely yacht. We were a party of four and had the boat to ourselves with the skipper and his assistant. A very informative tour, taking in the sights of Lisbon and a great way to view the city and its attractions. Our guide spoke perfect English and made us feel very much at home as he navigated the river, pointing out the landmarks and making suggestions for our stay in this beautiful city. He was extremely knowledgeable of the history and layout of the city and our whole group thoroughly enjoyed the trip. This is a must do for any visitor to Lisbon.
