Our 3-hour Segway tour was FUN, pleasant and informative. After getting the hang of the Segways (easy!) and realizing the Portuguese are very polite about letting Segway riders use the sidewalks, we learned so much about the history and current culture of Porto. You do use some balancing muscles in your legs that might not have been worked much recently, so don’t be surprised if you feel a little sore afterwards. But the fun was well worth it. After leaving Porto we are headed to Lisbon and will likely employ a Segway tour there as well.

Stephen for the WIN! Stephen was my tour guide and total joy for the day! That kid is knowledgeable, kind patient, smart and funny. He taught me how to ride the Segway and helped guide me when I needed it. He is all about safety and talks to you like a friend. The tour was a great way to see the city. He even gave me tips about restaurants. Keep this guy on the payroll!

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.
