What to Expect
Explore Porto from the vantage point of a self-balancing Segway on this 4-hour tour, and glide along historic streets to see the city’s main attractions.
After a brief training session on the self-balancing vehicles, follow your guide from Praça da Ribeira, part of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage district, and head towards the Miragaia neighborhood; location of Porto’s ancient walls.
As you tour, your guide will describe Porto’s origin as a pre-Roman settlement, talk about Roman times, and how Portugal was reconquered from the Moors in 868, restoring the city of Portucale.
See attractions such as Clérigos Tower, the bell tower of the Baroque Igreja dos Clérigos (Church of the Clergymen); once Portugal’s tallest structure.
Go past the Belle Epoque Café Majestic, one of the city’s most loved teahouses, see the metal span of Dom Luis Bridge over the River Douro, and admire the magnificent Romanesque Cathedral (Sé do Porto), towering over the city’s historical center point.
