Great value for money item! Sid took us on a small speedboat to the sea far away from the coast of Lisbon. Riding the speedboat in the wind and waves was as exciting as riding a roller coaster. It felt like we had finished playing the roller coaster and pirate ship for a whole year! After unremitting search, I saw a few dolphins jumping out of the water and disappearing. I continued to move forward with a little disappointment, and found a group of five or six dolphins constantly jumping out of the water, and very close to us (of course, because they are protected animals) So you are not allowed to touch or touch it) It’s so shocking, such a cute animal! On the way back, I saw the Belem Tower and the sculptures across the river. Visiting the scenic spots in the water is a different experience! All in all, this project is worth every penny!

Excellent. The two guides were very experienced, spotting groups of dolphins (three occasions) on the horizon way before everyone else, pointing them out to us as they came up close to investigate our boat. They were able to identify how many, size, breed while we took it all in and took photos, etc. The tidbits of architectural history as we returned was a nice way to finish the fun tour.

The experience was brilliant. The guys were very accommodating and welcoming. Our guide was very informative, interesting and answered all our questions. We would absolutely recommend this experience to others who would like a unique and special evening.

There are relatively large number of free entry attractions. The transportation is free and unlimited for buses, trams and metro.

Great value for money. Really fun activity enjoyed by a Hen do.
