This cruise was fantastic, intimate (unlike the enormous Yellow and FRS boat tours) with drinks, a super friendly staff and an actual GOOD dj. As we stood at the dock, watching the competition pack people on their boat like an overfull cattle car, taking the tourists on board in groups to avoid bottle necking (seriously, how many people can the competitors comfortably fit on s boat?) we knew we’d made the right choice…a sentiment bring shared in three languages all around us in line as we waited to board our LisBoat. Definitely the sunset cruise to take, bar none. Do NOT miss this sunset tour :D

Lisbon is very hilly & pavements can be slippery so I would approach this tour with caution should you have mobility issues. However, if you are fairly fit then I really recommend this tour. The walking pace is good & our guide was excellent. Stops for food & drinks made this extra enjoyable. Definitely recommend.

A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing time! Our guide , Sophia, was excellent. The tour took place from 10:30 am and over the lunch hour, and the coffee and tart, beer, and seafood rice with wine was the perfect amount.

Great tour. Wonderful guide, me and my son both had an amazing time.

Wonderful ride. Friendly and helpful crew. It is worth it.
