Excellent activity and the best place to see Belem from the Tage ! The team is super nice and makes everyone confortable on the boat gives They give historical explanations on Belem all along the trip, and give best places/restaurants/activities to do on Lisbonne as they are local. I would recommend them so far!!

Alberto was the best posible tour guide to learn everything in Lisbon! Highly recommend for all, families, couples, friends. He knows everything there is to know about Lisbon and is very nice and friendly. He knows many languages too. He is the best!

We enjoyed how concerned our driver was for our happiness! Was very thorough and showed us in 2 hours so many wonderful spots in Lisbon. And educated us about the economy, the Tsunami and re building . All 4 of us were extremely pleased!

My least favourite thing was the wine as I would have preferred a red but aside from that it was great. Very welcoming and knowledgable staff.

Carlos our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. The 2 hour drive around in the electric car was perfect.
