What people are saying about Almada

Lovely day on the water, was a relaxing and peaceful afternoon. We sat right at the front of the sailboat. Our crew was amazing they gave us some background to Lisbon and the sights we were passing. We had a drink and enjoyed the sunset. It was very windy and we were freezing so the crew gave us blankets which was awesome! A well spent 2 hours.

Amazing tour, and our guide Tomas was really friendly and full of interesting facts - plus even took some photos of me and my friend! Lisbon is absolutely beautiful at sunset, and we had a beautiful day for it. (Definitely take a jumper though, it gets cold when the sun drops!)

This was an incredible tour, our guide was so friendly, kind, accommodating, and full of facts, really recommend! Travelling solo this was a great and easy way to meet people, have a glass of wine and a beautiful view!

It was great,very informative! We learned a lot and saw a lot. We couldn’t see the sunset because of the clouds but still very beautiful. Very cold be prepared to dress with layers.

Everything was amazing! Our guides were so nice and informative and the sailing experience was overall amazing! Highly recommend!
