German Operator Starts Panoramic Tours On The Tagus River
According to the operator, which starts the operation "after the easing of non-essential travel restrictions by the Portuguese authorities," the service has a touristic character and may be increased depending on demand.
"The service will start with two daily round trips, with a second tour with a special sunset as a backdrop. Based on tourist demand, FRS Portugal will potentially add two other round-trips at a date to be announced," indicates FRS Portugal.
Reservations for the panoramic tours on the Tagus are open since May 26 and can be made through the operator's website, at frs-portugal.pt, or directly at the terminal located at the Sul e Sueste Fluvial Station, in Lisbon.
"We are pleased with the reinforced reduction of the pandemic in Portugal, which is enabling a strong and robust resumption of tourism in the region," says Moritz Bruns, Commercial and Business Development Director of the FRS Group and CEO of FRS Portugal Unipessoal, Lda.
The tours are conducted on a 37-meter motor boat, which offers a convertible option, and include snacks and drinks on board.
"We purposely selected this boat from our fleet of more than 70 vessels around the world to provide our guests with a unique and magical perspective of the beauty of the city of Lisbon," adds Moritz Bruns.
In Portugal, the company is led by Svenja Wulff, former director of Business Development Projects at FRS headquarters and who, according to FRS, "has successfully completed several projects around the world" and has now been relocated to Lisbon, "in order to take the helm of FRS Portugal's local development."
"Wulff will have the support of a highly talented and qualified local and international team", adds the company in the information released.
