This is a boat trip in the historical heart of Lisbon. It’s an informative boat trip along the River Tagus which takes you along the city of Lisbon to let you discover the period of the XVIII century and before. See the silent witnesses of the prestigious and glorious past.

Our guide and sailor will be doing commentary so you can enjoy the views while also learning about the city of Lisbon.

The tour it’s in a traditional 1947 sailing cargo boat, with 15 meters and capacity for 50 people. Only 7 boats of this size remain, all of them inscribed in the Navy Museum, which makes our tour quite unique. The Tagus estuary traditional boats are one of the most important cultural heritage of its coastal communities.

The boat is original and makes the journey more authentic and lovely. They provide blankets but it is actually quite nice on the boat even if it is windy by the river. We did our tour in about 20 degrees and full sun. The host spoke beautiful French but I didn't understand anything..she switched to English and gave us a brief history of Lisbon which was great. Everyone liked it, child, teen and adult.

Really lovely crew and nice to see the city from the river side, beautiful. Only 15€, definitely worth it if it’s not to busy on the boat. Good if you don’t have too much time to go on a longer boat ride.o

Friendly staff

There are a great choice of boats to cruise on the river but none better than this one. A shorter trip at 45 mins but all that is needed and it is the only surviving traditional boat of its kind, so excellent value for money. highly recommend

Highly recommended boat trip

★★★★★ Reviewed by Oonagh on 2019-06-04
This was a really enjoyable boat trip for me and my family. The boat is a genuine traditional cargo boat. The journey was smooth, and gentle. The crew were very friendly and very helpful. They made a special effort to include my 3 year old son, he was taken up to the helm and driving the boat! The tour guide Jaoa gave an informative commentary. A really enjoyable experience for all the family. The journey was 45 mins - perfect length for the little ones and long enough for the adults too. Just the right time to experience being out on the river and look back on the city of Lisbon.
