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.
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.
First time on a Segway but for sure not the last. Four of us were taken around Porto by an excellent guide from Bluedragon,first shown how to use the Segway then taken into quiet areas to build confidence before going to the main tourist areas and finally over a bridge -spectacular!
Can really recommend this as a way to not only see Porto but have great fun mastering the Segway
Wonderful tour, a must do in Porto. The Segways are simple to operate and make easy work of the hills in Porto. Highly recommend.
This is an excellent way to see Porto as the Segway makes such light work of all those hills!! We were the only two people on this tour and were totally spoilt by our excellent guide Virginia. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about her city. She also recommended some wonderful bars/restaurants, one of which we went to and had a marvellous meal. You will be amazed by how much of the city you cover on this tour.
Best thing you can do to see the City. Sid our guide was full of fun and interesting facts. He was safety first and a great teacher. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and saw lots more of the city than we would have had we done a walking tour. I can't express enough how much fun this tour was.
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.
