Know More about this tour

Explore Lisbon in a fun and easy way on board a Segway! Segways are easy to use and are designed to operate in any pedestrian environment, giving you the time and freedom to explore places a bus or walking tour may not reach. No experience is necessary, so after meeting your guide in central Lisbon and receiving a brief safety introduction on how to operate the Segway, youll be ready to conquer Lisbon in style!

On this small-group sightseeing tour, visit Lisbons most famous and impressive monuments by Segway as your expert guide explains memorable and historic events that have occurred in the area. Start your tour near Alfama, Lisbon's oldest district, and immerse yourself in the medieval history of the area while exploring its narrow cobblestone streets, alleys, stairways and dead ends, which were once part of a highly strategic defense system of the Moorish domination.

Cruise by the imposing S de Lisboa Cathedral and admire its mix of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque architecture before continuing to the medieval Castelo de s. jorge, sitting on top of a hill overlooking the city and the broad Tagus River.

Then, follow your guide to local shops and treat yourself to several Portuguese delicacies typical of the area of Lisbon, like ice cream, beer, pastries and ginjinha (a local liqueur).Your guide will be there to answer any questions you may have about the local cuisine and any of the sites you visited on your Segway tour.

    I was a little apprehensive about this activity because I fall even while walking but Fred took his time with me and made sure that I was comfortable before we took off. The sightseeing was great and we got to go to places that would have been very difficult to walk. We enjoyed local treats and even shared some tapas and wine at the end. I would highly recommend this activity. Ask for Fred!

    My husband and I were the only two on the afternoon trip with Yury. Yury was fantastic. He was very patient as he taught us how to ride the Segways and was an engaging and enthusiastic guide as he showed us some of the main sights of Lisbon. The Segways were great fun and easy to ride once we had got the hang of it. We sampled some Gina (cherry liquor) along the way and had a lovely selection of meats, olives, breads and cheese laid out for us in a nice room one we returned to base. We were very glad of the cold drink offered too as it had been a hot but interesting journey. Yury certainly lived up to the great reviews he has had already. He is so relaxed and friendly.

    Yury, our tour guide, was excellent and beautiful to look at. I've done Segway tours in 7 cities in Europe and this one was one of the best. I was scheduled for the taste of Lisbon tour, but surprisingly, I was the only one booked for that tour. I was placed in another group without the taste part of the tour, but at the end Yury took me to what is now one of my favorite places to eat in Lisbon called Cerveja Canil. You must try the "My Balls" (Cheeseburger balls wrapped in bacon) and "Qiueijo Alvares Caral" (Crispy breaded cheese served with rosemary honey). DE-LISH!! And the lady bartender is super cool. Lisbon is all hills, this is the best way to see it quickly and save your poor feet for the return to your hotel.

    This was our very first Segway Tour and we absolutely loved it! Our family of 4 had never been on a segway before but our tour guides, Mario and Jessica were very patient and helpful in assisting us with learning to ride. We were able to practice in the Square prior to being led into the streets of Lisbon. It was a bit challenging but exciting to ride the uphill, downhill and narrow streets. Mario and Jessica remained attentive to our group throughout the tour to ensure our safety and comfort level. Mario is extremely knowledgeable and provided very detailed information throughout various historical sites and we enjoyed our food stop to experience some of the local favorite wine, cheeses and tapas. He provided great tips on local restaurants and other places to visit while in Lisbon. Jessica also had a great personality and held great conversations with me re: our trip itinerary, where we are from, etc.
    This was definitely the highlight of our tour in Portugal and look forward to doing this again someday. Thank you Mario and Jessica for making this experience such a memorable one for our family!

    Great activity for families ... able to see areas of the city you would not normally see on an organized city tour. Our guides were knowledgeable. The stop for a traditional snack was amazing!

    Great fun! One of the best Segway tours ever taken and we've experienced Segway Tours in multiple countries.

    4 ladies did the tour with Maria our guide and had a fantastic time. Great way to see the city and Sample some delicious local food at the same time. Segway riding is simple once you work out how to balance. Plenty of time to practice before we set off and we never looked back even on the really steep inclines and declines. Great day, great guide and great company

    I've taken a lot of tours in a lot of different countries and this was by far the best tour I have taken. Boris is a fantastic tour guide who really knows his stuff about the city and makes fantastic recommendations on restaurants, local cuisine, and liquors that you need to try. I would 100 recommend taking his tour if you get the chance.
