Skipper was low key, friendly, and did not feel the need to talk constantly, wish works BEST for me. There were only seven of us, and it was quite relaxing. The information that was shared helped me to appreciate the history of Portugal and Lisbon that much more. Lovely afternoon.

Although it rained a fair bit, it did not dampen our enjoyment, we just loved the river cruise and can highly recommend it

Not to be missed because seeing the city from a different perspective really increases your awareness of the place as a whole. The boat crew were all very friendly and happy to give info about what we were seeing. Only criticism was that for a long time the loudspeaker was too low and one couldn't hear the narrative.

We used the hotel pick-up option which was ideal start to the cruise. Cruise itself offers fantastic alternate views of Lisbon with plenty photo opportunities. We sat on the shaded sun deck the whole time to benefit from the sea breeze. Good commentary. Snacks available. You'll love this.

Great views and was very interesting - The tour guide was inaudible at times due to the noise and the wind.

There are lots of things one can enjoy but the trip can be improved as concerns the information people need when taking such a cruise. I had the feeling that nobody cared about the tourists on board.

Portugal is a jewelry! And be aware...I'm talking about Portugal, not only about Lisbon. Go for it!

The cruise was nice just a shame the tour guide just told us to join the line and left us with no ticket or anything.

This tour gives a different view of the city, and the information given during the cruise is quite helpful.

This trip provides an excellent way to see the city from a different angle. Try to get a window seat for the best views. Good value for money.

It was an excellent sightseeing experience. The tour guide was very good. The only problem was that we were not told that there would be no transportation back to the hotel. We waited a while and one of the boat personnel said that tour participants were dropped off but had to take a cab back. It would have helped if we had known that. We took a cab back, but we happened to have euros so that we could. If we hadn't had euros, I don't know how well things would have gone.

It was a lovely day on the river but I wish there had been more narration of our surroundings. The seating could had been more comfortable and - the selection of beverages and snacks for sale was not very exciting.

We could not hear the tour nararration at all, even if we could there wasn't much of it anyway. Would only recommend if you are tired of walking tours and need a few hours to just relax and enjoy the views.

Not a great deal to see on the river - two excellent bridges and an interesting view of Lisbon from the river. The commentary giving us information on what we were looking at was poor.
