Meet your guide near the Praça do Comércio station in downtown Lisbon for your small-group medieval tour by Segway. Hop aboard the vehicle and listen to a safety and operational briefing on Segway use. Designed for any pedestrian walkway, you will be comfortable operating the Segway right away. Then, cruise back in time to discover Lisbon’s medieval-era districts, architecture, and top sights.

Follow your guide along smooth cobblestone passageways to the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon, Alfama. As you traverse Alfama, see medieval Sao Jorge Castle perched atop a commanding hilltop overlooking the Tagus River. Arrive at the oldest church in Lisbon, Sé de Lisboa. Built in 1147, learn how Sé de Lisboa survived many disasters including the devastating Great Lisbon Earthquake in 1755. Note its architectural styles and modifications from rebuilding efforts completed over centuries.

Continue onto Alfama’s other renown churches including the 18th century Convento da Graça and the 17th century Romanesque Monastery of São Vicente de Fora, one of the most important mannerist buildings in the country. Then, climb to Portas do Sol and approach one of Lisbon’s top vantage points. Look down and admire the labyrinth-like alleyways and modest squares. Learn how, despite numerous renovations from earthquakes, Alfama has been able to maintain its rich medieval design.

After one-hour, drive back with your guide to drop-off the Segways. Alas, your tour isn’t over yet. Receive a voucher for two free drinks at one of the fun medieval-themed bars located 54 yards (50 meters) away from the Segway shop. Stroll over and sip a beer while you experience Lisbon’s medieval ambiance and decor (alternative beverages for children will be available). When your Segway tour is complete, continue exploring Lisbon on your own.

Given the good weather, the guide was still concerned with safety - ok But we covered very little of the medieval Lisbon despite the fact that there were only two persons in the group.

It was fine.

Segway are a great way to see a city, particularly one with the hills of Lisbon. Ruben and Maria were excellent guides. I could have done with going on the longer tour rather than the one of the old town as there were a limited number of sights.

We were only a group of 2, and were delighted with our guide, Manuel, I think. He was friendly, very knowledgeable, and a great Segway instructor. The Segway was a brilliant way to see inside the mediaeval Alfama area, where many streets were too narrow for cars and buses.

We were also given lots of insight into local customs and taken to a store to buy specific items we were looking for. Because we were held up behind a garbage collection bus, our guide extended our tour and didn't rush us at all. We can highly recommend this tour!

Just the two of us on the tour... excellent tour! Said an hour, actually about 2 with practice time and all that. Easy to locate. Guide was excellent! Great morning visiting the sites. Would recommend!

This segue tour was perfect for my mom, brother, and I to sample the Alfama hills in Lisbon on our last day. Peter was such a super attentive guide who assisted my mom all the way and well knowledgable, and Jorge was also very helpful. I would certainly recommend to add to the trip!

Paulo was our excellent host, there were just the two of us from the US and a nice couple from the UK. All of us had prior segway experience so we got to skip a lot of the tutorial stuff. The tour was great, but way too short. They need to add an hour to this. Alfama was wonderful, Segway was a great way to navigate the hills. Highly recommend Paulo, and the tour would be 5 stars if it was at least an hour longer.

A fun approximately 2 hour trip of the old city of Lisbon shooting up and down the stone streets. Our guide Joao was great and really new the medieval city.Very helpful in stopping for photo opportunities. We would recommend the tour for people who want a bit of fun on a Segway with the added benefit of not having to walk up all the hills while seeing more in less time. Much better than a bus by a lot shot.
