We did this as a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 8, 10, 13. Process was very organized! Boat was excellent - clean, lots of room, a bathroom, blankets, and a fun hammock net over the water that the kids loved. Crew was nice and friendly! One drink was included which was enjoyable, plus you could buy additional. Slight downside was that this was “sightseeing” only - no verbal explanations of what we were looking at unless you asked crew specifically, but I think this was mentioned in description.

The Lisboa Card is a very useful tool to visit and move around the city. The means of transport (trams, metro and buses) work very well and it takes very little to get from one district to another. In addition, the card allows free admission to many museums, panoramic points and other tourist attractions and offers convenient discounts.

It was an unforgettable experience. Even more so thanks to an amazing skipper Benny who was very knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting information about Lisbon during the cruise. Thank you!

Silvia has been such an amazing guide. Every stop was detailed & all questions answered. I highly recommend her for your future tour in Lisbon!

The father and son crew was excellent. We enjoyed the trip and the guide was very knowledgeable
