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. The Segway moves by responding to simple body movements and quickly feels like a natural extension of yourself. 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. Explore the city cycle path near the River Tagus, where you can get up to full speed. 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. Peter was very knowledgeable and gave in-depth descriptions when encountering important monuments. Highly recommended taking the Segway tour with him! An absolute must-do in Lisbon!
