A relaxing way to see Lisbon from another vantage point. Note to folks interested in architecture and history--this is not a substitute for a city tour. But it is a nice way to see things you wouldn't otherwise see, and a way to get a wider view of this beautiful city.
Captain João and fair weather were a perfect combination for a lovely evening on the Tagus River. I have been to Lisbon many times, but had never been on the water. I highly recommend this sail to anyone who wants to get away from the urban noise and traffic for a few hours, and wants to see a great city from another perspective.
Lovely, relaxing way to experience Lisbon from the water. Bernardo is captain, first mate and purser on this trip - and he executes all of his duties with professionalism and grace. He gave us a beautiful tour of the city - coupled with educated commentary on all the sites we toured on our sail. Watching the sun set at the conclusion of the tour was breath-taking. This is a must-do activity while in Lisbon. Thank you, Bernardo!
Highly recommended!! Bernardo, our captain was very charming and knowledgeable. He would point out sites and tell us the history behind it. The boat itself is comfortable and everyone has a seat. Bernardo went the extra mile and was very attentive towards my husband who walks with a cane. When we had reached our destination, and after the rest of the guests had disembarked, he called a Taxi for us so we wouldn't have to go in search of one in this crowded zone. A definite must do when in Lisboa! A
Brilliant tour. We were the only two on the boat because it was mid February, so off season. Skipper was very knowledgeable. If you are staying in Lisbon city, give yourself time to get down to the harbour.
It was nice being out on the water, and there was a lovely sunset. The skipper was competent and likeable - fluent in both Portuguese and English. My only disappointment was that we couldn't go under full sail, as the winds were well over 20 knots.
