Learn about the history and culture of Lisbon on a fun and thrilling amphibious adventure. Take a plunge into the Tagus River in your bus!

Would highly recommend, a great relatively affordable alternative to a private water taxi whilst not having to take the main water shuttle into Venice which would’ve taken double the time. Easy to find the meeting point at the airport upon arrival. We got lucky and on the trip into Venice, did not have anyone else in the taxi with us. On the way back to airport received an email the day prior with the meeting point information for pick up. Pickup was right on time. Noting it’s a shared service we were picked up and dropped off at airport a bit earlier than our personal preference, but worth it for the experience and ease.

It was a SPECTACULAR experience!! We loved it, the animator Gui and Captain Filipe were very friendly and very professional. The animation was always high and it was a lot of fun and at the same time we learned very interesting facts about Lisbon :) :) I strongly recommend this experience for kids and adults!!! 5*

Booking was super easy. The ride was very entertaining and undoubtedly the highlight of our stay in Lisbon. First a one-hour city tour and then another half hour on the Tejo. Luckily, I always had my cell phone handy and was able to record the vehicle dipping into the river.
