What You Can Expect
As you glide through Porto to the downtown district of Ribeira, a UNESCO-listed historic center, cruise by Baroque churches and Moorish tiled buildings. Stop at the stunning 12th century Porto Cathedral. Admire this architectural champion of Romanesque design and learn how Porto experienced a surge of growth during its construction.
Next, take a break at the double decker iron bridge Ponte de Dom Luis I which spans the Douro River. Snag some great photos and hear how this bridge was engineered by Gustav Eiffel’s apprentice. Nearby in Liberdade Square, observe the monument to King Peter IV, a monarch closely cherished in Porto. Then, continue to one of the globe’s most impressive train stations São Bento Station and marvel at its elegant design.
Then, head to the illustrious Café Majestic, a famous Belle Epoque-era café known widely for its ornate interior. Peer in and see its extravagant mirrors, dazzling chandeliers, and angelic sculptures. Afterwards, twist along streets and scale small slopes to discover the spirited Bolhão Market. Enjoy aromatic smells of baked bread, fresh fish, and colorful produce. From here, soar by the majestic Clérigos Tower as you wind into the picturesque district of Miragaia. Snap your final Segway selfies here as the three hour mark approaches. Finally, coast back to the center of Porto near Cube Square and say farewell to your guide.
Absolutely brilliant! As my friend and I are past the first flush of youth we were worried we would not be comfortable on segways. What a revalation, we soon felt quite as home on them and really enjoyed the tour. The guide was lovely and very knowledgable. I would reccomend it to anyone.
Our guide did a wonderful job of getting us around Porto. He was not only a Segway guide, but also a History guide. My husband and I really enjoyed this activity and we could not have had a better guide.
Great experience and nice guide!
Sid, you're fantastic! Thank you for the most honest tour we have ever had.
Professional, nice history details. Sid our guide was very attentive helpful also plenty of details and history. Sid made our short visit to Porto full of details and knowledge.
Outstanding! It could not be better! The guide Sid was excellent, the equipment very good. It enriched our experience.
An absolutely amazing tour, all down to the excellence of our tour guide, Sid, who we had for both of our tours with the local tour company check out their Porto Food and Wine Tasting Tour also!
Sid is a true local, born and raised in Porto, so he knows the city like the back of his hand - and it shows in the way he took us around the city. Endless interesting facts about each stop we made which includes the famous Lello's bookstore and an awesome ride along the Ponte Luis bridge and brilliant views along the way, with Sid's witty humour and vast city knowledge compensating for the dodgy weather we had on the day of our tour - it got to the point where we didn't even care about the weather because the tour was so fun!
I could not recommend this tour highly enough, due to the brilliant experience we had on the Segways, racing around Porto having fun whilst also learning so much about the great city itself. Sid is an absolute wonder of a tour guide, and even though this is the very first tour I've ever done, all of the tours I will have from now on will be compared to the ones he took us on, because we had such a great time :D
P.S. Please read my review on the Porto Food and Wine Tasting Tour, also provided by the local tour company. Would also highly recommend to ensure you sample some of the delicious Porto cuisine and wine!
The tour was a great experience! We had a nice and professional guide Sid who took care of us while we explored Porto by Segway. Great way to see Porto and to know more about this city. Would recommend this way of sightseeing to those who want to see Porto without having to walk the steep roads.
Phenomenal! Sid was terrific! Fun, informative...
A very nice tour, cruising the hills of Porto on a Segway is a pleasure. The guide was very helpful and caring. Would definitely recommend taking it.
