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 tour, awesome to see the city and surrounds from the water. It was nice being in a smaller craft rather than the bigger boats. Great stuff!
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.
Pretty bloody good idea to see the city from a different vantage point. Great views of both Lisbon's famous bridges!
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.
A lovely trip on the river, I imagine night time would be the best
I rate this tour on 2 factors. The tour guide Bernardo was informative and a capable boat driver. The boat portion of the tour was excellent. HOWEVER, the company scheduled to pick us up after the cruise DID NOT SHOW UP. This left us stranded about 4 to 5 miles from our pick up point. Most people had to take a cab though I made it back with a combination of walking and Metro. THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE!!!
We were disappointed by this tour after the dynamic and enthusiastic experience of a local guide the previous day. There was little information imparted apart from the main buildings visible from the yacht. We were picked up at 1.45 and did not get back to our hotel until well after 7.00 on the hop- on hop- off bus. For the price we would have been better to take the local ferry around 2 euros , enjoy the views of the city and then enjoy a seafood meal on the other bank of the river.
This tour was ok. It was actually a small sailboat ride down the river. The boat holds about 8 passengers. We had 9 in our group and the ages varied from 13- 76. I was expecting to hear more about the history of the city. If you are looking for a quiet ride down the river, I would consider this. If you would like to hear more about the history and see the city from a different view, I would select a different tour.
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.
