What You Can Expect
Glide through the city’s UNESCO-listed historic center, Ribeira, passing Baroque churches and showstoppers like Porto Cathedral. Stop to marvel at the cathedral’s Romanesque beauty, and hear how most of the city was built around it during the 12th century – a time of massive growth.
Pose for photos against the backdrop of Ponte de Dom Luis I, Porto’s eye-catching iron bridge that spans River Duoro, and then pass along Aliados Avenue into Liberdade Square. See the monument to King Peter IV – a monarch that the city holds in high regard – and then traverse the streets around São Bento Station, an exquisite building that’s often described as one of the world’s most beautiful train stations.
Stop in front of Café Majestic, an opulent eatery that lives up to its name; sneak a peek inside to see its extravagant interior with lavish mirrors, cherub sculptures and glistening chandeliers. Work your way through the streets to see Bolhão Market with its colorful stalls and lively ambiance, and then pass the Clérigos Tower on your way to the pretty neighborhood of Miragaia.
After three hours on your Segway, glide back into the center of town with your guide and finish your tour near Cube Square.
This was a FABULOUS and fun tour. Virginia was our guide, she took about 15 minutes to get us comfortable with the segway and how to use it. We spent three hours touring Porto, she showed us all the highlights and was very knowledgeable. I regret that I didn't take my camera. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to take pictures and navigate the segway, but the segways are easy to use. If you go on this tour I would highly recommend bringing a camera.
We saw much more on the segway tour than we would have been able to see walking and it gave us a great opportunity to decide what we wanted to go back to and do again. The Railway station is a must see it is part of this tour.
