Tour was great. Our skipper was knowledgable and gave us all the needed information, brought us bubbly and ensured a smooth sailing with amazing views. The sunset and Lisbon from Tagus river look stunning. and due to us being only 8, we had our own private, romantic evening. Would definitely recommend tour to everybody who wants to relax and enjoy amazing views of Lisbon. TIP: although blankets are available on the boat, bring a hoodie as it gets a bit chilly.

This was amazing and verry romantic. The boat was beautifull and the city by night is just awesome to see. We started when it was fully sunny and got back when it was fully dark. We went directly to the harbor after a walk in the city. We didn't realize that it is colder at see. So we ended up in summer clothes. Thankfully the boat had blankets !bring a sweater anyway!

What a beautiful trip - we set off our sails on a perfect sunny evening and finished it on a full moon light.

Only negative - the place wasnt easy to find. Tour guide did not turn up until 7.30pm. So we got bit worried. But it all ended well on a good note.

Great tour for the price. Was wonderful to be on a sailboat instead of a motorboat with seats.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

A very pleasant trip in a beatiful evening with wonderful views of Lisbon.
Our reference to Marlin Boat Tours was very kind and waited us despite the delay due to the difficulty to find by car the meeting point.
