What’s included in our Sunset boat trip Tagus river?

The Tagus river sunset cruise in Lisbon sets out from the South and Southeast cruise terminal and the trip lasts approximately 90 minutes. The tour includes spectacular views of the Ponte 25 de abril, an emblematic suspension bridge bathed in the golden evening light and illuminated beautifully. On our way, we will pass under the bridge, which has often been likened to the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, USA.

As well as the Ponte 25 de abril, you’ll also get to take in many more of the Portuguese capital’s important landmarks and attractions during your sunset boat trip Tagus River. These include the MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology), which boasts a fascinating façade during the day, but even more so at sunset. The setting sun transforms it into a completely different building that’s certainly worthy of admiration.


Another one of the most renowned landmarks you’ll get to admire during your river Tagus sunset cruise in Lisbon is the prestigious Belém Tower, a stunningly beautiful fortification and UNESCO World Heritage Site that is simply gorgeous at sunset.

And to make sure you start your journey in the most unforgettable way, you will receive a welcome drink upon boarding our sunset cruise on the Tagus River, ensuring you enjoy your experience as much as possible. Because everything tastes better under the setting sun.
