Climb aboard a handsome yacht for a 2-hour sailing tour of the city’s iconic landmarks at sundown.

Continue towards the vast span of the Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge, and gaze up at the outstretched arms of the Christ the King statue. Marvel at beautiful squares, such as Terreiro do Paço (also known as the “Praça do Comércio”), part of the Pombaline Downtown rebirth after the 1755 Earthquake.

Really nice tour. We enjoyed few glasses of wine, some snacks, the beautiful sunset, even seen the dolphins. And also a lot of fun facts from the guides. Recommendation for everyone visiting Lisbon.

This was yet another wonderful experience. Since we requested an English speaking tour we ended up having our own private guide with Sofia who was just so pleasant and very knowledgeable of the Alfama zone and Lisbon. The stops along the way to taste Ginginha and Beirao along with their Pastel de Nata was delightful. Beautiful to see the architecture and landmarks still in existence. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. I highly recommend this tour.

The guides will show you how to ride the e-bikes and get you ready to go.

Its Kasbah-like layout is deliberate - this is the city's ancient Arab district. Alfama derives from the Arabic word Al-Hama that means "source of good water". One of the few areas of Lisbon, which wasn't destroyed by the big 1775 earthquake, Lisbon's old quart...

Had a great time, Miguel was very entertaining and looked after us with drinks and a blanket for the wife (take warm clothes as mentioned!!). Although engine overheated on the way back with seaweed blocking the coolant entry, we made sail and had a gentle cruise back to port with no worries. All in all a very enjoyable 2-3 hours.
Great boat ride!! Our boat was a lot less full than the other boats. Guides were very nice, took our pictures and told a lot about the city. Drinks were included. Sunset was beautiful. Can highly recommend!!
It was a very nice tour into the sunset. The crew tried very hard and explained a lot to us. There was also an answer for drinks.
We had an unforgettable evening. Thanks also to the attentive crew for spontaneously offering to take a few family photos.
Highly recommend this as an activity, if you’re visiting Lisbon!
