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.

Read reviews about these boats not leaving at scheduled times and the pick up points being inconvenient. No issues as far as we were concerned. Turned up for a 10am (first) departure from Praco Commercial to Belem and we were on board and departed for 10.10am. Dropped off at Belem after a leisurely cruise up the river and returned to pick up the 4pm return trip. This again left just after 4 so no complaints.

Boat was clean and there was commentary that you could choose to listen to if you wanted. Sailed across the river so we could get a decent view of the Christ Statue and take pics.

We selected this as part of a 48 hour ticket which then allowed to use the trams and funiculars. Good value

Booked on Viator for 10.30 am with options of 10 and 10:30 departures.Reading reviews realized that only departs at 10 and sure enough loaded and left. At 10.10. Trip was fine, lovely sunny day to appreciate Lisbon from the water

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!

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.

My advice to unsuspecting tourists is DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY on this service. We paid 20 Euro each (3 of us) and were only able to travel one way on this rip-off boat. We took the boat from Terreiro do Paço and wanted to get off at Cacilhas to see the Christ The King monument, but it did not go there. It advertises that it does. We went to Belem and got off to spend a few hours there. When we went back to take the return journey on the boat, we found it came to our stop but just turned around and did not pick anyone up. We were mystified as to why it did not allow us to board so we found a rep and asked why. He told us that there was no pick-up at Belem for another 2 hours because it was the week before Eurovision and there were changes to the schedule. These changes were not shown anywhere and the person we bought our tickets from did not inform us. We asked if we could take the bus instead but he said we would have to pay another 16 euro each to get on the bus! We didn't want to sight-see, we just wanted to get back to our starting point because we dinner reservations. The Yellow Boat/Bus staff were totally inflexible and would not help us out in any way. They made no apology for the misinformation provided and they clearly did not give two hoots. Their staff just don't really care, period. I will never use the Yellow Bus service again in ANY city, EVER.

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.
