Tour description provided by Viator

See Lisbon from a different angle as you take a leisurely two-hour cruise down the Tagus River. Relax on the boat as you drift past Lisbon's monuments scattered along the waterfront, such as the Park of the Nations (Parque das Nações), the Monument of the Discoveries and the 25th of April Bridge. Take in views of the beautiful St George Castle (Castelo de São Jorge), São Vicente Monastery and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jerónimos Monastery, which overlook the Tagus River from the Lisbon hills.

Discover the beauty of Lisbon from a different point of view -- from the Tagus River! Meet your local representative in central Lisbon or enjoy pickup from your Lisbon hotel, then take in views of the city as you head to the riverfront. On the drive down the Avenida da Liberdade, the biggest in the city, admire views of the Alfama district -- the oldest in Lisbon -- and Bairro Alto.

Continue along the waterfront, where you will get a panoramic view of the wide Tagus River before you change to a smooth-sailing, comfortable boat for your sightseeing cruise in Lisbon.

Relax as you enjoy panoramic views of the lush Park of the Nations (Parque das Nações), in the modern part of Lisbon where the 1998 Universal Expo was held, and the glass Oceanário (Lisbon's aquarium).

Admire views of St George Castle (Castelo de São Jorge), São Vicente Monastery and beautiful parks overlooking the Tagus River. Enjoy plenty of photo opportunities as the cruise takes you south of the river, passing the beautiful southern part of the Bairro Alto and Alfama districts.

As you get closer to the Belém district, see the Monument of the Discoveries, which commemorates Portugal's important role in the discovery of the Americas, and the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower. Your sightseeing cruise will finish in this area, so you will have the opportunity to visit the monuments at your own leisure and expense.
