“Wonderful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

When I used to live in Portugal, I made countless journeys across this technological and cultural marvel. It stilled wowed me after crossing it so many times, a great view. Roll down the windows for that great breeze, and enjoy the longest bridge in Europe, but watch out for those Portuguese drivers ;).

“Amazing bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We went across this bridge yesterday and what a buzz eleven miles long......never been on one that long before. It is beautiful to look at and is architecturally awesome . The views of the river are spectacular I didn't take photographs as I don't think you can stop. You have to go all the way.

“a fantastic view over the tagus river.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We got the bus going to Freeport village ( the Outlet Shops Village ), the bus went across the Vasco Da Gama Bridge for 17 KM!!!. seeing both banks of the River from the Bridge is so beautiful. so many photographs could be taken. the design of the Bridge is so perfect. Crossing the bridge, or seeing it from a distance is a pleasure.
