Full description
Glide back in time and discover the medieval sights of Lisbon's Alfama district on a Segway tour.

Discover in Alfama the sounds, smells and sights of Old Lisbon. Alfama still retains features from its medieval Moorish past, with narrow maze-like streets, steps and arcades. Navigate your way through a steep labyrinth of winding alleyways. At the core of Alfama, a vibrant community remains in touch with the lifestyle of Old Lisbon. Many poets and Fado songs were inspired by the liveliness and constant energy of this district. To keep you in the medieval spirit, you'll be treated to a drink at Trobadores, a medieval-themed bar.

Segways are safe to use, easy to learn, and fun to ride. We offer a thorough training session from our certified guides before we begin the tour.

Fun, cool way to discover Alfama, a must do

Because of an error in the booking system which did not have us on the noon tour with the German guide, the tour was already full and gone when we arrived on time. The guys were very flexible and tried to make this a positive event for us and gave us the option of going on the 3pm German speaking tour or do the tour at noon in English. We preferred the English tour which turned out to be the perfect decision. The three of us got a „private“ tour guided by the nice and lovely Mariana who we can definitely recommend. It was a highlight of our Lisbon stay and we‘ll do it again next time! Thanks Mariana. Claudia, Candia and Roland

Fun and informative tour with excellent guide

This tour was highlight of our stay in Lisbon. We were lucky to have a guide who spoke German fluently, a very nice and helpful guy! He first explained how to use the Segways and let us practice a bit with his supervision: my wife already did a Segway tour in another city and said that the introduction given by our guide in Lisbon was way better than on her previous tour. Driving through Alfama with Segways is a very good way to get around quickly. Our guide navigated us to several points of interests and explained the history. Although booked for an hour, the tour was actually a bit longer (the guide asked beforehand whether this was okay with us) but time really flew! We enjoyed this tour very much, it really was a highlight of our trip!

Excellent tour with excellent guide

A really interesting tour of the old historical Alfama district - driving along the promenade then up through the old town streets. Tour guide James was excellent and gave a good commentary
