What people are saying about Lisbon Oceanarium

Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 5,047 reviews

We hire a tourist bus for 48 hours, we use the Belén (red) and Oriente (blue) lines. As for schedules, everything is fine, punctual departures at the specified time and at the stops that we got off and took the bus again, also quite punctual. I chatted to getyourguide and a very kind lady gave me a map with a route and schedules at the different stops. We were with children and the bus is comfortable. Regarding the audio guides, I have to say that in our case we only found one that did not work. As a downside, for my taste little information, I would have liked it to be more complete, it's good that they play music (fados) from time to time, but other times they could take advantage of those times to continue telling things about Portugal, curiosities, interesting things, even though They are general and not of that specific route.

If you have limited time and want to have a flavour of Lisbon, this is the best option. The visit to Oceanarium is worth it. You get the chance to hop off and on wherever you like with half hour intervals of bus arrivals. Its good for any sunny day, just hope it doesnt rain or it would be a bit hard to enjoy.

It was amazing from start to finish. So much to see, it was a beautiful place. Well worth the money. It takes a long time to get around see everything, but you don’t even notice the time.

Honestly the tour was great. You can even stop and take the next one as soon as you finish visiting the area of your choosing. Plus you get both lines.

The most recommended when one goes to a city for the first time. Good combination of buses covering a large part of the city and its main attractions.
