History

Prior to the construction of the 25 de Abril bridge between the two banks of the Tagus in 1966, transport between the South Bank and Lisbon was made only of boats and ferries. The cacilheiro was one of the means of transport and that is active until today and has that name for making a specific route between Lisbon and Cacilhas.

My Opinion

It is an excellent tour and for the whole family. Besides being a way to tour in Tejo with a value well below what the tours charge, you still have the benefit of delighting in the restaurants that are near the Cacilhas pier. It can be a walk to be done in the morning, and when you return to Lisbon combine with tours to interesting places that are in the vicinity of Cais do Sodré.
