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!
