My wife and I scheduled this sunset cruise for our first full day in Lisbon. Unfortunately, it was rainy and cold on this day. We were unsure if the cruise would be cancelled, but the owner of the company came and picked us up at the hotel. He said that since the weather was bad, we would be going out on a catamaran, instead of a traditional sailboat. The boat was beautiful and the captain, Joao, was very nice. We enjoyed having the boat to ourselves and the unique views of Lisbon from the river. Joao was a great guide and we had a nice experience, despite the weather. The owner of the company had offered another sunset cruise, since ours had such bad weather, but we did not feel that this was necessary, as we had a great time on the cruise we went on.
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..
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.
