Private Tour: Tagus River Sunset Cruise in Lisbon

Enjoy a private sailing trip around Lisbon!

Meet near the Museu do Oriente in central Lisbon and board your private sailboat for a 2-hour breathtaking sunset Tagus River cruise. After your crew prepares the sails, depart from the 25th of April Bridge and begin your private tour over the Tagus River. Savor stunning views of historic monuments drenched in warm golden rays, like Lisbon’s famous Christ the King monument (Cristo Rei). Learn how the monument was influenced by the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Continue along the lively Tagus River and spot Lisbon’s most famous attractions. Glimpse out at Belém Tower which once was used as a defense system at the mouth of the Tagus River. Hear from your friendly crew how this tower was dedicated to Saint Vincent, Lisbon’s patron saint. As the sun dips deeper, marvel at the Monument to the Discoveries which was built to honor the many Portuguese explorers who risked everything to sail to new lands in India and beyond.

Just as the sun is about to descend below the Atlantic, capture spectacular views of the UNESCO-listed Jerónimos Monastery. Enjoy its late Portuguese Gothic Manueline style of architecture as the sun sets. Then journey back to land, where your private Tagus River sunset cruise ends.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Lisbon. The boat was clean and safe, the skipper was very pleasant. It was a beautiful night which, of course, helped. We were very comfortable on board. Our only slight problem was that we were unsure if we were waiting at the correct place before the tour began - could do with some signage.

Our party of 8 arrived at the dock and were immediately greeted. Our sail boat turned out to be a catamaran and we were the only passengers. The sail was wonderful lasting 2 hours with the most lovely views of Lisbon. What a great way to start off vacation. We used this trip to come down from the trip to Lisbon.. We are from New York and Florida.. You cant get value like this anywhere. 166.00 for 8 people..

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

The most memorable experience in Lisbon. Sailing at sunset the very first night in country gave this place a magical feel to it. By far the best choice on any travel. The music played on board was soothing, and classy. The set up was very sophisticated, and the crew was phenomenal, where one had the sailboat to ourselves with as much or as little interaction from the crew as needed. A truly memorable, remarkable and unforgettable experience. Made me fall in love with Lisbon, and want to return over and over again.

The family enjoyed the private boat trip down the Tagus River. The weather was good on this day. We took a private taxi for the whole family going together (8). ,The taxi was overrate of 120 EUROs. Rather take normal taxi from hotel to the river was 8 EUROs.
