Simon our guide was simple awesome! So was Alvaro who followed at the back and made sure we were safe. He even switched bikes with my son when he found out the bike wasn’t functioning so smoothly. Tips- do know different bikes cycle differently and road sharing with different vehicles can be challenging but with patience, some bravado and common sense, this is about the best way to visit hilly Lisbon esp the colorful Alfama area! Ask for Simon !

My husband and I did the 21/2 hour electric bike tour Friday morning and had wonderful guide called Yannick that was very informative and patient with us. He was great and showed us places we would of missed if we had not taken the tour. We had the best time.

Nice tour, good electric bikes. Guide told a lot, taking pictures on request was no problem. Pay close attention to safety.

Edwardo was a great tour guide and very friendly and helpful to my mum who wasn't confident on a bike at all.

It was a very interesting and fun trip. I visited less traveled sites and found them very interesting.
