Explore the area from a new perspective with HIPPOtrip, a tour company utilizing a fleet of amphibious buses. Hop aboard one of the boatlike vehicles for a 90-minute overview of the main sights and neighborhoods of the Portuguese capital, seen from both land and water. You'll zip your way through the historical core, then plunge into the Tagus River, continuing past the Belem area and eventually back to dry land via the harbor. Be sure to book ahead of time online; tours can fill up quickly, as the aquatic ride is something of a novelty. Put HIPPOtrip into our Lisbon online tour planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Lisbon.

This was the highlight of our kids trip to Lisbon. The guide was entertaining and knowlegable. Awesome way to see the city with kids! more »
Marta and Pedro were fantastic, funny and informative. I haven't laughed so much in a long time. Your 12 and 14 year old girls loved it. Thanks so much for a fun way to end our trip. School on... more »
This trip is a fun way to get an intro to Lisbon if you don't have a lot of time and/or have kids with you. It was a 10 minute walk from the convention centre so a great way to break up the day when I had a session I wasn't interested in attending. Martha was a really enthusiastic tour guide with a good sense of humour who speaks several languages and will answer any questions you have. The down side of that is that f there are non-English speakers on the tour she'll repeat what she has said/ will say in English in their language (s). Pedro was as a great driver and navigated the transition from land to water and back again comfortably.
Very good attraction. The tour guide was very good. She explained everything in Portuguese and in English. If you are going with kids they will enjoy but it's recommended that they will understand English or Portuguese. The water part is relatively short but still very nice. It's a good tour that provides nice view to few main attractions in Lisbon.
