  • Lisbon: Ferry Boat Sunset Cruise in the Tagus River

    1. Lisbon: Ferry Boat Sunset Cruise in the Tagus River

    Embark on an unforgettable evening boat cruise along the Tagus river and experience the best views of Lisbon's sights in the Portuguese evening sun. Climb aboard a 2-hour pleasurable sunset cruise and enjoy your time on the water. Taste the delicious set of snacks and sip on some refreshing wine during the sunset tour. Enjoy a peaceful evening along the beautiful shoreline accompanied by pleasant music. Experience the barrier-free panorama vessel where you can sit under the open sky or cover up if you prefer. If required, the roof will be closed, or we will set up the on-demand sun awning so that you can still enjoy the nice breeze. Enjoy the magical views of the city as the modern vessel has a 360-degree window view. Experience the impressive panorama overview from every seat on the boat. Feel the soothing breeze and take in the stunning architecture of the floodlit city at sunset.

    Very enjoyable cruise, great views of the city at sunset and at night. Never got to Belem by land, so it was a great opportunity to see the Tower from the water. The complimentary wine and snacks were a nice touch. Perhaps the cruise could start a little earlier to be in a better spot for the sunset itself.

Then, wander down the alleys of the old part of town on a short walking tour of Alfama. End at a traditional Fado house and listen to the mournful melodies of Fado. Lose yourself in the atmosphere and mood of the music. The quintessentially Portuguese genre is produced with a Portuguese guitar and characterized by heartfelt lyrics. Fado was inscribed by UNESCO on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in November 2011.

    I enjoyed Rodrigo and the walking tour to Alfama. We went to several great locations and finally we made it to the Fado & dinner. The Fado was great, the ladies were amazing, to short, so I was really upset about that. I didn’t like the food at the Restaurante Sao Rafael. It was terrible.

Excellent guide giving a great tour and an insight to the Portugiese Culture ending in a typical restaurant with nice food, great musicians and singers. The walk through the part of the old city, climbing up and down, requires some fitness, but is good for the health.

Nice two hour tour on the Tagus. Wine and water as well as a few snacks were included. I can only recommend it!

It was a great excursion with plenty of wine and snacks ... a breathtaking view of the city at sunset
