What You Can Expect

Small-Group Medieval Lisbon Tour by Segway

Small-Group Medieval Lisbon Tour by Segway

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.

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!

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!

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.

What a fantastic tour to do. Having never been on a segway before, Paulo was great at ensuring everyone was comfortable with their segway during the tuition part before embarking on an exciting trip around Lisbon. Taking to the roads with cars,tuk tuks and trams we were soon zooming around like little pro's. The scenery was brilliant and Paulo was very knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lisbon. We were not rushed and my husband, sister and brother in law had a fab time also. One tip: remember to put your sun lotion on before you set off - it's pretty difficult once you are on your way.... enjoy
