  • I must say Lisbon by boat is a wonderful company to work with. Our company had booked a private sailing tour for 4 hours for our work retreat. We had ordered the BBQ package & drinks. We had the time of our lives. The crew was incredibly courteous and friendly, and really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and relax. I will never forget this trip and highly recommend these guys. You won't regret it!
  • 4hrs sailing tour with sunset dinner and it was absolutely amazing. Music, good food, fabulous views , everything was perfect. I highly recommend it.
  • We did a sailing tour - it was great. 3 Crew Members, 6 guests and the crew provides us with a lot of useful information about the city. We got a snack and a drink and the service was really great. I can absolutely recommend the tour!
  • We went for a two hour sailing tour. The crew were all very friendly, told us a lot about the city, and provided a drink and snack for us. This was a definite highlight from our trip to Lisbon.
  • Guide/skipper was very knowledgeable and spoke great English and French. Great views of the city and a nice sunset sail back down the river with wine and other snacks.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
