What People Are Saying

"La tripulación buena nos hizo reír ,el loro que acompaña izo sus funciones aunque no es de mi devoción la utilización de animales para esto pero chulo para verlo aunque sea una vez desgracia mente no pudimos ver delfines"
"Very nice boat trip to the caves. Carlos and Goncalo were very nice and a lot of fun. Would recommend highly!"
"We were picked up at our hostel right on time and driven with another family to Sesimbra. Everything was gorgeous and the market was very fun! The guides were so kind and kept us safe as well as made good conversation. The views are stunning and the beach was well worth the paddle (which was done at each person's desired pace). The castle tour was also beautiful, and had a great view of the town! I really recommend this trip! "
"Our trip with the Lisbon River Sights was a memorable family experience. One, which will be cherished forever, due to its significance. A long awaited family reunion that was especially enhanced by our host. Our skipper, besides being a very knowledgeable guide, is an experienced sailor, and sympathy in person. The beverages and tasty delicacies provided were a perfect “starter” to a fabulous lunch on the Docks. I will definitely travel again, but this time for a romantic sunset trip. A Five star experience."
"I have always been fascinated about Portugal and this tour was the cherry on top! Sintra is unmissable, and when you have a good guide even better. Thanks again for the time, was a lovely day."
