The absolute best way to see a lot of Porto, with extremely knowledgeable staff, I had a fabulous time exploring the city this way... I highly recommend it.
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.
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.
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.
This tour was a great way to discover Porto. Moving by segway is great as you don't get tired and we covered all the city centre. The guide gave us lots of interesting facts and also played games with us so that we learn details about the city in a fun way. We stopped several times to take pictures and visited some exciting buildings, such as the library that inspired JK Rolling to create hers in Harry Potter! I recommend it to anyone who wants to have an overview of Porto, learn interesting details about the city and have a bit of fun!
Segway is so much fun! At first I was a little bit unsure as to whether I'd feel comfortable on it or how difficulty it would be to 'drive' it, but I was surprised to see that it's actually very easy. I didn't get tired at all so I was able to focus on the surroundings. This tour on segway was a great and fun way to discover Porto. The guide was also very attentive and clearly knew lots of details about the city. From now on I will always look for segway tours!
Brilliant way to see the city! Angelo was a great guide and passionate about Porto. Would highly recommend this tour.
