My friends and I had booked a private sunset cruise on the Tagus river. We were slightly late but that was not a problem, we were met and taken to our boat by Luis. On the boat were Michael and Bruno. We enjoyed the cruise immensely and we created a party atmosphere as it was a birthday celebration. All 3 crew members were very accomodating and joined in the fun which was why we really enjoyed this trip. The actual cruise was an enjoyable ride with a little history lesson too and it was spectacular to see the sunset, weather was amazing too. Cannot recommend the lovely staff and this cruise trip enough. This activity made our trip.

We really enjoyed our sunset cruise. The two guides were extremely friendly and took great care of us - no matter if it was about infos about the tour or the boat, providing us with useful tools and letting us choose our own music on the boat or taking group pictures of us ;) I can honestly highly recommend it!

It was a fabulous experience. Bought it as a birthday gift and it was amazing. Our host were fantastic, told us a lot of stories about the city. They were very positive and made our experience very special. Thank you.

One of the Best experience in my life. Very warm crew amazing sunset and wines. What else you need?

Fantastic sunset cruise by an excellent and experienced crew.
