What people are saying about Alcântara, Lisbon

Beatriz was my guide. She was excellent in that she is vivacious, knowledgeable and stops to answer questions. She would show us things that made Lisbon come alive. This was one of the first things I did in the city as a solo traveler. It's a great introduction to the city and nice way to meet others traveling.

This was a fantastic experience! Fernando and Miguel were funny and had great knowledge of the historic landmarks. They were attentive and even provided blankets for the ones on the night trip! Would highly recommend!

Lovely sunset cruise. Our guides (Fernando and Luis) were really friendly and welcoming and told us lots about Lisbon and the surrounding area. They really made the tour for me.

This was a brilliant trip. I was delighted by the yacht and the skippers -Louis and Mario. It was most enjoyable, informative and relaxing. So pleased I found it.

Very nice your. Our guide David was a wealth of knowledge.
