Very nice walk on land and on the Taje. We start with the visit of the city, which I feared would be a little short but not at all. For the ride on the Taje, it is done downstream of the bridge, in front of Belem, the monument dedicated to discoveries and up to the maritime traffic control tower downstream. Lots of restaurants near the starting point, if you take a departure in the early afternoon. We will remember the atmosphere, the passage in the water - fun. For those who know the series: it's the magic bus!

Hippo trip is not told, it is lived! Hippo-hippo Hooray!!! It was awesome! Remaining only 1 day 1/2 in Lisbon, it spoke to us about going where we would not have had time to go to visit the city. The trip on the water is a moment to live. Thanks to the captain and Allegria for her energy and explanations

Tour of Lisbon on dry land. Ana told us lots of information about the city, in English. Much more Portuguese spoken than English, though. Jolly demeanour overall. The splash into the river was fun. Very enjoyable. The seat that I was in was quite uncomfortable due to part of the metal fabric of the craft protruding.
