Tours on the Tagus
If, as the proverb says, "a picture is worth a thousand words" then sonnets are unnecessary to describe Lisboa. All you need to do is admire it from the Tagus and enjoy the most beautiful views of this "white city".
Follow our suggestion and take a cruise on the Tagus River that will at the same time offer you a trip back in time of the Portuguese capital's history, from Belem to Parque das Nações, past the Historic Centre.

There are several companies specializing in river tours aboard various types of boats. Simply choose the cruise that suits you best and enjoy Lisboa's panorama seen from the river.

The Transtejo tourist ferries provide magical moments aboard two types of regular tours: the Lisboa Viewed from the River cruise, which takes passengers up the river to Parque das Nações, with daily departures from the river terminal at Terreiro do Paço, at 3pm. There is also the Discovery Tour, to Belem, with daily departures from the river terminal at Cais do Sodre, every day at 4.30pm. Both tours include tourism guides, with translation into several languages. For further information call tel. 218824674 / 5.

Equally charming is Lisboa Vista do Tejo's tour which offers an evening cruise on the river with dinner included and accompanied by live music. The cruise departs from Doca de Alcantara and requires advance booking. The company also offers other regular tours aboard a cruise boat, Thursday through Sunday, with departures from Cais da Princesa (Belem Tower) at 1.30pm and 4pm, and Cais do Sodre, at 11.30am and 2.45pm. For further information call tel.213913030 or visit www.lvt.pt

Sailing aboard the classic three-masted schooner "Leão Holandês" is in itself a unique experience, but even more special when it sails up the tranquil Tagus waters for exclusive tours along Lisboa's riverfront, or even as far as Cascais. For further information and reservations call mobile tel. 917862663, 917862673, 917217926 or visit www.leaoholandes.com

"Principe Perfeito" of tour company Veltagus is another three masted sailboat offering the ideal setting to enjoy the coastal scenery of Lisboa, Cascais and Sesimbra in organized tours for groups (minimum 20 people). For more information call tel. 212439081 or visit www.veltagus.com.

For those who love the thrills of speed, WaterX offers unforgettable experiences on the Tagus River with speedboats, sailing yachts, water skiing, wakeboarding, luxury yachts and catamarans or even a day program dedicated to fishing. To discover Lisboa's coast, Water X organizes boat trips, with itineraries ranging from 45 minutes to three hours, and can carry up to 60 people at a time in their five boats. For more information call mobile tel. 918500262 or visit www.waterx.co.pt.

Still in the Lisboa region, visitors can enjoy dolphin and local bird watching tours along the Sado River estuary, in Setubal, organized by Vertigem Azul. This is an excellent opportunity to come into close contact with these extraordinary animals in a setting of great natural beauty. For more information call tel. 265238000 or visit www.vertigemazul.com.
