Itinerary
This two-hour boat cruise along the River Tagus in Lisbon goes from Alfama to Belém. You will travel by open boat and see the sights from the water. On-board commentary provided by the guide ensures you don’t miss anything. As soon as we depart, you will see the amazing waterfront area between Praça do Comércio and Cais do Sodré, Ribeira das Naus where many of the Portuguese explorers' ships were built. After that is the Praça do Comércio, the largest square in Lisbon and also one of the most iconic symbols of the city and it was rebuild after the great earthquake of 1755.

On this cruise, you have the opportunity to admire some of the most amazing monuments and buildings of the city: São Jorge Castle is a Moorish castle overlooking the historic center; Lisbon Cathedral is the oldest church in the city built in 1147; Alfama is the oldest district of Lisbon. The Church of Santa Engrácia is a 17th-century monument, in the 20th century it was converted into the National Pantheon. Christ the King is a Catholic monument erected in 1959. The 25 de Abril Bridge is a 2.3 km suspension bridge.

Also seen on this tour is Belém, which has two unique monuments and are World Heritage Sites: Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and Tower of Belém. They are two jewels of the Gothic Manueline style.

Lovely cruise on the Tagus

Went on the sunset cruise with a friend, and it was absolutely lovely. Beautiful boat, friendly staff (special thanks to Sid, Joana and Luis) and a great atmosphere. The view of Lisbon and Belém from the boat was fantastic. Well worth the money!
