Full description
Experience the history of Lisbon via a modern mode of transport. Using a self-balancing Segway, you can explore at your own pace and see more than you would on foot or a sightseeing bus.

The Segway moves by responding to simple body movements and quickly feels like a natural extension of yourself. This experience to remember will get you up close to historic landmarks without breaking out in a sweat! You can take the tour alone, with friends, or with family. On arrival, you will be asked to choose from one of the following itineraries on your day of travel: Lisbon by the River; Alfama Tour; or Baixa Chiado.

Explore the city cycle path near the River Tagus, where you can get up to full speed. Look out for historic attractions, such as the Santo Amaro Docks, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries, and more.

It was our first time to ride on a Segway and we were slightly nervous beforehand but it was actually really easy. It was a great way to see the city and the ride along the river to the Belem Tower was fantastic and our guide, Tony, was really excellent.

Excellent intro to Lisbon

This is a great way to get an introduction to the sights and history of Lisbon. You cover a lot of ground in the fun and easy to handle Segways. Our guide, Ricardo, was excellent and very knowledgeable. We were lucky that no one else signed up for our time, so we essentially had a private tour, but it would just as fun in a larger group. We saw many important sights along the river and had much fun doing so. Highly recommended.

Great tour! Recommended for Segway beginners (zero experience)

I took my wife to a Segway tour. Although unsure at first if she could handle the Segway, she quickly got used to it. It really helps that the tour to Belem is just on an even level (unlike the tour to Alfama with steep hills to climb up and down). The guide (Dania) was very nice and supplied us not only with historical information to the landmarks we passed by (even in our native language, German) but she also gave us local insider tips on restaurants, transportation and many other things. The tour also included a culinary surprise which was very tasty. The procedure is as follows: ca. 15 min before start you check in in the shop. You grab a free (!) water and wait for the guide. You walk round the corner and get to know the Segway (theory of operation + driver training) - up to 30 min Then the actual tour begins. Driving back and forth took the advertised 3 hours - so the training time doesn't count into it. The whole team was very friendly and it was an overall great experience!
