    Ride on brand-new e-bikes, a tailor-made mode of transportation for the hilly city of Lisbon. Enjoy riding a bicycle with an electric engine to give you a push on the hardest parts of the route. The guides will show you how to ride the e-bikes and get you ready to go.

We did this on our first day, it was perfect and I don’t see any other way of obtaining the most beneficial information on history and guidance for the rest of the trip. Peter our tour guide was absolutely fabulous I cannot quite comprehend how he knew so much delicate and intricate pieces of information that most don’t learn about in schools. This fascinated me and seriously helped build an image in my head creating an immersive experience. Needless to say the segways were absolutely fantastic! Great coaches Peter and his intern, we were pros by the end of it! To top it off we tried all the local traditional snacks and drinks that we hoped to! Thank you so much!!!

Luis was a very friendly and knowledgeable host who showed us the highlights of the area on this interesting tour. If you have not done segway before it is a great way to cover a lot of ground in a short time, and is really good fun. Can very much recommend it, thanks for a great time!

The tour by Segway is varied and great fun. The fact that you are fed in between rounds off the tour perfectly and makes it something special. Those who do not book the tour are missing out on a great and entertaining round trip.

Great Experience, our guide Hugo was super friendly and told the history of Lisbon with great enthusiasm. We were able to discover the districts of Lisbon and their stories in a good atmosphere. To do without hesitation !!

This was a fantastic tour! Simon was an awesome guide, riding the Segways was simply a blast, and the tastes we had along the way were delicious. Highly recommend.
