It was a very relaxing, extremely enjoyable way of getting a view of Lisbon from the river. Complete the impression of the city that you get from the land. The guide provided excellent information about Lisbon history.

The experience was great, the Skimmer Carlos and his son Rodrigo were very friendly and gave us great recommendations about Lisbon and around. The wine and especially the sailing trip were excellent :-)

This experience was great! The guide was super friendly. My group had a great time. Warning: the boat does tilt quite a bit if it is windy.
