Léa, our guide was charming, friendly and spoke of Porto with passion. She took the time to explain the handling of the segway to us and showed us the beautiful places of Porto, with lots of anecdotes. It was great ! Nathalie and Franck

Rather quickly getting to grips with the segway for a first approach to the city, plus a very friendly guide who gives us information on the sites. I recommend this visit.
