Great and fun way of sightseeing
We booked the trip as a family excursion with my 75 year old parents and my 7 year old child. Living in Lisbon, I haven't done sightseeing in long time. Besides the fun part of going into the water, we learned interesting facts and fun factors about Lisbons history. We can very much recommend this fun sightseeing trip for tourists but also for locals. We loved it and felt safe, driven by Nuno and very much entertained by Pedro . Well done!

A great Adventure & Tour at the same time!
Sep 2021
See Lisbon from land and the river in the same tour. We had a lot of fun and you learn quite a bit while the friendly tour guide explains all about the city.
The guides are very animated and the kids loved it.

Great experience!
Sep 2021
I went with my daughter (4y) and it was a great experience for both of us. Ana was one of the best tour guides i have encounter. The only think that could be improved is to find a way to have the child seats a little higher so small children can see more outside the window. Overall great experience and completely recommend it.

Amazing and great views! The vehicle is pretty cool and we turned a lot of heads while driving through the city and driving down
The tour was amazing, definitely will get your money's worth. Anna was very knowledgeable and entertaining! Her ability to go back and forth between Portuguese and English was fantastic and she was very friendly! Made the ride so interesting and Carlos captain was a great driver! Overall I would definitely do that trip and recommend it to anyone who asks!

Amazing view of the city and super funny guide
The whole family loved the trip.
The views where astonishing and entering the water on a bus is just something you don't get the chance to do very often.
Our guide, Gonçalo was super nice and really funny and made the trip way more enjoyable for us.
Hippo Hippo! Urra!

Lisbon from another perspective
This tour on bus/boat was just super fun! Our animator Anna was accurate and hironic, explaining everything in Portuguese and English. The entrance in the water was really adrenalinic and the tour in the river gave a view of Lisbon that tourists shouldn't miss. Hippo hippo hurra!

Must do tour in Lisbon

Had a great time and the overall experience was very informative and most of all fun. I wasn't expecting to spend as much time as we did in the sea which was great as no traffic.

You must go on this trip!!
This is a fabulous tour, for every member of all families. The fantastic knowledge of the tour guide, who was Pedro on our tour, was not only interesting but funny too. You travel through the city with lots of very interesting information, then you take to the water with breathtaking views. An absolute must for your trip to Lisbon.
