Sunset Cruise in Lisbon – Airbnb Experience Review

One of the highlights of my trip to Lisbon was our cruise at sunset – we spent lots of time exploring the city on foot, and decided we wanted to see the city from a different perspective, so decided to book a sailing cruise.

There were many different operators offering sunset cruises in Lisbon, here are a few of the options that we considered:

  • Viator – 2 Hour Lisbon Sunset and Wine Sailing Tour
  • SeaBookings – Sunset Cruise in Lisbon
  • Get Your Guide – Lisbon Sunset Catamaran Tour with Music and Drink
  • Get Your Guide – Lisbon Daylight or Sunset on a Vintage Sailboat

However, we decided we wanted more of an intimate experience with locals so found this AirBnB Experience hosted by Ana, Pedro and Antonio – who take out tourists on their own sailing boat.

The boat tour started in Belem Marina and we spent 2 hours cruising along the Tagus River and admiring Lisbon’s monuments (including the cathedral, Bairro Alto and Alfama).

They perfectly timed the boat ride with sunset/golden hour, so at the end of our cruise we were treated to the perfect view of the sun setting across Lisbon (scroll down for a few pictures!).
