Social Programme II – HIPPOTrip Tour

Sunday, June 18, 6.30-8.30pm.


We do what no one else can, allowing you to explore Lisbon by land and river during a laughter-filled adventure that redefines the city tour experience. Learn about the rich history and culture of Portugal’s capital in a fun and easily digestible way, while enjoying the thrill of plunging into the Tagus River “in a bus” … you’ll love it!

Prepare to be entertained by our lively animators, who will share myths, legends and curiosities during an entertaining ~90 minutes show full of positive energy and passenger interaction. It’s all about fun and laughter. Don’t expect a “traditional” sightseeing tour with a “traditional” guide, but rather a memorable experience that will leave you shouting out. Duration of our standard tours are ~90 minutes, of which ~25 minutes are in the Tagus River. Standard tours are conducted in both Portuguese and English and we operate daily (rain or shine – Keep in mind that it is an open sided vehicle, so please dress accordingly) every 2 hours between 10am and 6pm.

Our departure point is located at Doca de Santo Amaro in Alcantara, which is the marina located directly below the big red “25 de Abril” bridge. The passenger boarding area is at the entrance of the “Associação Naval de Lisboa” building, directly beside the Tagus River.

For safety reasons, we cannot accommodate passengers with highly reduced mobility, nor any passengers under the age of two.

Tour cost: 30€ adults; 25€ children >2 <16 and Senior >65.

Pick-up time: 6.30pm. Location: Clube ISCTE (after Social Programme I).
