What to Expect
Make your way to the docks, where you board an amphibious tour bus and set out through the city. The route is carefully designed to take in main sites, including Cais do Sodre, Praça do Comercio, Rossio, and Avenida da Liberdade, a bustling thoroughfare lined with lush gardens. From there, pass the Marques de Pombal, Largo do Rato, and Jardim da Estrela on your way into the riverside neighborhood of Belem, entering the water at Doca do Bom Sucesso, a former naval dock in the heart of the city. Once in the water, enjoy great views of the Lisbon waterfront on your way to the Monument of the Discoveries and Belem Tower, part of a gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage Site with centuries of history. The tour concludes at the original departure point, close to top attractions and sights.

We took a leisurely 40-minute stroll from our hotel in the city centre to Santo Amaro dock. Our guide David and driver used humour throughout and made our experience so much more enjoyable whilst we learnt about the history of Lisbon. From both land and the Tagus river, we were

Even for us, Portuguese Lisboners living and working here had a great experience. Hugo the driver and Paula as the guide/entertainer/crazy people (as she said) made it a lot more interesting and funny.

What a fantastic tour! My 8 year old and I loved it. Ana is so warm and knowledgeable, she must have hosted this tour hundreds of times but her enthusiasm made it feel like it was her first. You see some key sights that are slightly further from the city so it’s a great,
