Jorge
The boat ride experience was a life long memory for me and my spouse. The departure to the Tigris River was on time, and though it was windy the ride was still comfortable. The hostesses offered complimentary drinks and snacks. The captain of the boat made sure to cruise near landmarks along the river to ensure photos could be taken for memories as well. There was music on the background and the vibe was nice and chill. We had two younger children (4&6) and they enjoyed it as well. Overall awesome time and would recommend!

The excursion was great! The highlight of our vacation. The dolphins were very close to our boat. The team was super friendly. We first drove along the coast and then to the dolphins. There we spent about 30 minutes with the dolphins, they must not be disturbed for too long while hunting. The boat is very fast and the ride alone was a lot of fun! We absolutely loved it. In any case, don't forget to apply sunscreen beforehand. Jacket makes sense if you get cold easily, on the open sea it got a bit chilly.

Very pleasant to cross the Tagus by sailboat. The crew is very nice, especially the gentleman from Panama. However, there was a lack of historical or cultural information to enhance the visit. The meeting point is very well indicated, no waiting. I recommend this outing.

Experience to do. The tour itself is short but the kids will know how to involve you in the history and art of Lisbon. I would like to point out Ruben who, with his perfect Italian, helped us discover the hidden corners of Lisbon. Then the boat is a blast to get another point of view on the cit

Despite the bad weather, the welcome was warm, the staff very friendly. A good atmosphere, the city tour is great to see. The walk offers us a panoramic view of all the important monuments of the city, as a bonus the sunset adds charm to the excursion. A drink is offered as a welcome, the barmaid was adorable. Unfortunately we had rain, but a fallback solution was offered to us, we took the walk inside the boat, which took nothing away from the beauty. Plaids are available in case of cold.
