This was the perfect way to see the highlights of Lisbon in the short time we had available. Our guide Inês was very knowledgeable and so kind - she was able to answer all of our questions and provide us with historical knowledge as well as help us understand the current social and cultural aspects of life in Lisbon. We would highly recommend that you tour with her!

Superb experience at the sunset cruise! Our guides, Tiago and Margarita, were excellent and had so many interesting stories to share about Lisbon/Portugal’s history! Would really recommend this sailboat cruise for some great views of the entire city and extremely engaging stories

This was such a great experience. Rui couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. He knew Lisbon and explained it well. The Tuk Tuk was excellent—we really liked all seats facing forward, which is usually not the case for four people.
