    Experience the history of Lisbon via a modern mode of transport. Using a self-balancing Segway, you can explore at your own pace and see more than you would on foot or a sightseeing bus.

This experience to remember will get you up close to historic landmarks without breaking out in a sweat! You can take the tour alone, with friends, or with family. On arrival, you will be asked to choose from one of the following itineraries on your day of travel: Lisbon by the River; Alfama Tour; or Baixa Chiado.

Look out for historic attractions, such as the Santo Amaro Docks, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries, and more. 

    Peter is a great tour guide! We took the more historical route instead of the one touring Belem and we found it immensely enjoyable.

Had a great time, Miguel was very entertaining and looked after us with drinks and a blanket for the wife (take warm clothes as mentioned!!). Although engine overheated on the way back with seaweed blocking the coolant entry, we made sail and had a gentle cruise back to port with no worries. All in all a very enjoyable 2-3 hours.

Great boat ride!! Our boat was a lot less full than the other boats. Guides were very nice, took our pictures and told a lot about the city. Drinks were included. Sunset was beautiful. Can highly recommend!!

It was a very nice tour into the sunset. The crew tried very hard and explained a lot to us. There was also an answer for drinks.

We had an unforgettable evening. Thanks also to the attentive crew for spontaneously offering to take a few family photos.

Highly recommend this as an activity, if you’re visiting Lisbon!
