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.

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.

It has been a super complete guide, Luis is a true professional and his recommendations have been unbeatable.
