Surprised my partner with this cruise to celebrate our three-year anniversary, and it didn't disappoint! From the views, to the time of evening, to the fact that we get a drink offered, it was a lovely way to spend our anniversary sunset, and we even got to meet another lovely couple celebrating their ten year anniversary! It is not inherently a romantic cruise, but it is really excellent if you are a couple! On our boat, there were about 4 or 5 couples, and a couple groups of friends, as well. The lovely gentlemen manning the ship also made sure to give us facts about the sights we were seeing, and pointed out some great things to take photos of! Highly recommend this short cruise to anyone and everyone! :)

Due to weather forecast Marta kindly rescheduled our tour to a morning cruise, rather than just cancelling. She even arranged for us to board the catamaran for cover in case the ran continued. Antonio the skipper was great with plenty of knowledge, providing access to music and refreshments. We had a fantastic time. I would definitely recommend this company.

We had a great time on our sunset cruise. The ride was most pleasant and our crew did a great job pointing out the sights in Lisbon and Belem. The weather also cooperated and gave us a beautiful sunset. We would recommend this cruise highly.

This trip was amazing - sunset was beautiful and well worth the price. our only issue was trying to find the location- for older folk that are not too internet savvy it was hard to find and even though we took a taxi he wasn’t familiar with the area. worth the money - just make sure you print out directions before you go- it was also cold even though it was August- they were prepared and had blankets for all

That was my last day in Lisbon. I went for this sunset trip to Tagus river. It was just wonderful. The view of the Belem Tower and the discovery statue is just amazing. More over our boat driver Anthony was very good. he was explaining everything whatever we were asking him .He even give me an opportunity to drive the boat. I could not forget this experience. I will highly recommend to do this boat ride.

The most perfect way to see the city as soon as you get there. Who wouldnt want to be on a sunset cruise in Portugal?! It was relaxing and romantic, even with strangers on the boat. It was the perfect amount of time. You get a cocktail and blankets, if needed. Just do it. Two hours on the water, you cant beat it.

Lovely sunset cruise. If you are looking for a party boat, this is not it. Just peaceful enjoying the breeze and great views. It gets chilly so bring a sweater. They did provide blankets as well.

An unexpected bonus: this was on a yacht! We were expecting some sort of pleasure barge. Was a tad chilly, in February, but blankets were available. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip, and we got some fantastic pics

This was nice, but cold the time we went. Not the fault of anyone, just a shade uncomfortable, but the views were lovely.

Would definitely recommend this cruise. The staff was friendly and never did we feel rushed. We were a group of 6 adults and a 3 year old. The sunset was beautiful and they even had blankets for those that felt chilled. it is such a great way to see the other side of Lisbon. We will do this again when we go back to Lisbon.

We had a perfect sail the first night in Lisbon with minimal fog. It was a beautiful way to start our Portugal vacation.

We took this tour the day we arrived, and it was the perfect start. The boat itself, called the 'pirate ship' by the skipper, was a bit funky, but a lot of fun. We were a small group of maybe 10 or 12. The guides two of them provided blankets needed once the sun sets and lovely cheese, jamón ibérico and port. Highly recommend. The meeting place is a bit far, start early. Uber is great in Portugal, make sure you get a Sim card or get an international plan so you can access it.

The tour was great! The sunset was amazing and the hospitality was excellent. The only thing I would say is to wrap up WARM. It gets very cold out on the water. I think a note of this could be made on the product page (if it is already, then I guess I missed it!)

What a wonderful experience! The 2-hour cruise is a fantastic way to see Lisbon by water -- and at sunset no less. All the photos we took were incredible. The family that gave us the tour was wonderful -- Antonio, his wife Ana, and their son and his girlfriend. They made the experience truly memorable, giving us a nice dose of history, pointing out special landmarks, and of course taking photos of our group! They even had wine and champagne to offer us. I couldn't recommend this tour enough!

This is a great tour of the Tagus River. The boat is comfortable, with plenty of space and the captain did a great job with the cruise. They served drinks and we had the chance to see a beautiful sunset. Highly recommended.

Pedro was awesome as the tour captain on this cruise. He was multilingual in Spanish and English. He was very informative about the sights along the Tagus River from the Praca do Comerico down to the Belem Tower The ship sails under the Abril Bridge and passes the Redeemer Statue on the south side of the river. There were blankets supplied if you needed them and Pedro also had wine,beer and soft drinks for passengers. No charge.A great way to relax after a day of walking around Lisbon.

This is a very nice boat trip! It takes you along Lisbon's major landmarks between Praça do Comercio and the Belém Tower. Our skipper Pedro shared information about all these along the trip. I will take this sunset cruise every time I will be in Lisbon in the future.

Loved this. Felt very intimate, a different way to see the city, views were amazing and it was well organised

This sunset cruise was a perfect way to enjoy the start of an evening in a new city. There were 7 in our group so the sail was intimate and absolutely lovely. The captain was charming and very relaxed. He gave us just enough information on Lisbon without stifling our group conversation and our pleasure in viewing the city and the beautiful sunset. For the money this can't be beat. We highly recommend it!
