The kayaking was a lot of fun. We had friendly guides with us. Along the way they took pictures of us and sent them on afterwards. Lubricate yourself well, because you burn alive on the water. Our expectation was that we would go closer to the center of Lisbon, but this was not the case. We stayed a bit more on the coast around Oeiras.

Nice to get on the water and we were lucky, we were the only two. Obs. on that the trip of two hours is inck. dressing so it is only approx. 1 1/2 hours on the water. But very nice options for both bathing and dressing. The guide took photos along the way and we got the pictures sent to us. The place is a bit difficult to find, so calculate good transport time to and from.

We had a great time! Our guide was lovely and helped us since we were first timers. First we saw the sea side, then the river side. The whole experience lasted a bit longer than 2 hours. We had a great time, but was very tiring. The starting point is about 30 mins away from Lisbon on an uber and 1h on public transport. Would still highly recommend because there was also a great beach and we made a day out if it. The guide took great pics too
