A great way to see the city.

Our guide Valter quickly and easily taught us how to ride the Segways. He then led us on a wide ranging three hour tour of the main city, taking in all the important sights. Stopped for the necessary history lessons, and for coffee and cake. The Segways are great fun and easy to ride. Well done Valter for a good fun afternoon.

A perfect and fun way to see Porto !

Our tour was awesome. This was our first time on a segway and we found it easy and we had a blast! We explored the city on and off the segway. Our guide was fabulous and knowledgeable. We stopped to see things, listen to a story or to take pictures. We navigated through small spaces without any issues. We laughed and had the best time. I'd recommend this way or touring to everyone!
