Avoid this poor quality offering!
This is a tacky experience which is a bit of a swizzle. All the more disappointing as it claims to be run by a group company of Tripadvisor.

Before you book, the trip is advertised as “2 hours (approximately)”. Once you have paid, the ticket shows the trip as “Duration 1h45m”. And then having cast off at 12:15, we returned to the start point at 13:30, after a whole 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Although there is a bar on board, it was locked up and you need to bring your own drinks as well as any snacks that you might want over the lunch period. If you are in the know, when you dock at Belem, you can rush off the boat to buy some peanuts at a kiosk; but only if you’re in the know.

It’s called a hop-on-hop-off tour, but they only stop at Belem and if the boat is full on the next voyage, we’ll you just can’t hop back on!

There will be better cruises available, this is certainly one to be avoided.

Good tour
Great experience but not very well signposted, for visitors,. Also although you get a cruse around the monuments and castles there is only 1 stop . Because we went during a rainy spell we did not leave the boat and returned to Lisbon. Overall it was good, probably better in the sun . A suggestion to the company. Perhaps a night time cruise during sunset or later to see the sights lit up.

Mafia rules
We bought a combi ticket for boat, tram and airport bus. During the boat tour we lost the tickets and informed immediately the staff. The guy told us not to worry and that they would give us a solution when we would arrive back. Their offer was to buy new tickets with 25% discount which is ridiculous. Company’s policy they said...absolutely worst service!

Don’t get ripped off- buy tickets for the red bus City Sightseeing tour
Absolute garbage which is why they are paying hotel concierges to recommend. Less than a third of the buses at double the cost. We bought a two day ticket so that the second day we could go to the Oceanarium. We were told the first bus would t be there for 2 hours since only one bus was on the purple line! Insane. Doc red buses passed in the first hour. Don’t get ripped off, this is a total scam.

Relaxing
Oct. 2019
The boat ride was really relaxing. You can Hop-On Hop-Off at any stop and continue your journey within the ticket validation which is really nice. Its a full package to see, explore and know Lisbon from a different perspective, just chill on the deck of the boat, capture lots of breath-taking views for memories. Enjoy!!

Confusing
Sep. 2019
The Hop-On Hop Off Yellow Bus Tour was confusing to me. The narration should tell the number of the stop corresponding to the maps given. Boat part was fine but found I wanted to see somethings and because no one was waiting at the stop and no one got off, the driver would just skip it. Part of the time I missed sites I wanted to visit. They really to say the number before each narration.

Relaxing and informative!
Sep. 2019
A very relaxing way to spend an hour seeing Lisbon from a different perspective.The main attractions are covered and the commentary is in 4 different languages. You can choose the stops to get off at and explore. I had twisted my ankle earlier so I needed to sit through the trip which was perfect for me.Your ticket also covers the yellow tram so that you can continue your adventure on land after you return to port.
