We did one of these tours on our first full day in Lisbon and it was a fun way to get an overview of the city. Our guide was fantastic, I only wish I could remember her name!

After visiting Lisbon several times, we wanted to do something different. This was great fun and gave you another view of the city. Luis was informative yet fun, speaking at least 3 languages for the other guests on our trip. A definite for any family.

An amazing tour with fun guides who actually know their stuff. They even pointed out lots of museums and restaurants that we'd later visit, and love, in our trip. Definitely recommend if you're visiting Lisbon!

Yes. If you book with RC then you will go to the theatre on the ship. You’ll be given a group number and they will bring you directly to the Hippo boat. Enjoy
