We invite you to join us on a tour along the Tagus River. Come and visit Lisbon in a different way, be amazed by it’s colours, the way they spread over the hills and touch the river. We will sail from the Doca de Santo Amaro (Santo Amaro Dock under the bridge), to the Praça do Comércio, one of the most beautiful plazas in the word. From there we can see the old neighborhoods of Lisbon: Chiado, Baixa, Castelo and Alfama. Then it’s time to cross to Cacilhas on the other side of the river to get the widest possible view of the city. Sail close to the Cristo Rei on the south bank, cross under the bridge and sail to Belém to see its tower. On the way back you will see how the people of Lisbon love to walk, sit and chat by the side of the river; usually the banks are full of people enjoying the sun, the river and boats passing by. You will have plenty of time to take amazing pictures of the city and of this incredible experience.
