What people are saying about Almada

We did this as a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 8, 10, 13. Process was very organized! Boat was excellent - clean, lots of room, a bathroom, blankets, and a fun hammock net over the water that the kids loved. Crew was nice and friendly! One drink was included which was enjoyable, plus you could buy additional. Slight downside was that this was “sightseeing” only - no verbal explanations of what we were looking at unless you asked crew specifically, but I think this was mentioned in description.

Francesco and Federico were our hosts for this lovely evening. They took us around the port of Lisbon and timed our sunset view perfectly. They were accommodating and informative. Wonderful hosts and the boat was comfortable. Highly recommended.

It was an unforgettable experience. Even more so thanks to an amazing skipper Benny who was very knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting information about Lisbon during the cruise. Thank you!

Excelente passeio de veleiro! Pontuais e organizados, Barco grande e novo, Tomaz e Gonçalo sempre dispostos a ajudar e explicar tudo sobre o barco e trajeto. Recomendo fortemente!
