What people are saying about Lisbon District

This was amazing!!! Joao and Claudia were our crew for the day and they were amazing! They were both so warm and informative! The boat ride itself is wonderful. It’s two hours of just beautiful views along the river in Lisbon where there are great views and photo opportunities! If you want wine, it’s an extra 10 euros and sparkling wine is 20. We got the white wine which was wonderful! Overall I think this was an amazing experience and would definitely recommend it and I am so thankful for Claudia and Joao for showing us a great time!!!

Evening was great, boat has an overhang area to keep you out of the wind and the tv’s that informs you of the sites as you are passing them. There is even a nice restaurant in front of the dock if you get there early to have a drink or snack reasonably priced

Benny and Mario were excellent and took good care of us. It was very informational and very welcoming. Love the explanations and introductions

Wonderful, laid back experience seeing Lisbon’s historical sites from the river’s eye view. Worth the trip if you have time!

Great night tour. Large boat w/ 3 levels. Well worth the time and money. Staff is very friendly and service is good.
