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.

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

Highly recommend doing this tour as soon as possible on your visit to Lisbon. We really enjoyed it and they make you feel safe and give you plenty of time to learn how to do it without taking it from your tour time. Both of our tour guides were great....

Fantastic tour of the Alfama and surrounding areas of Lisbon. The tour was relaxed, informative and at a slow pace. There was no urgency to finish in the allocated hour.
I would highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic way to see Lisbon! Our group was kept to our family of 3 which was perfect. David was our guide and was very attentive and ensured we remained safe as well as informed at all times. Nothing too much trouble and no rushing to get to the end. Something my sons and I will never forget, Thank you :0

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. David was very informative and also extremely safety conscious. Would never have found all the little back streets or walked the 6 kilometres in such a fun and interesting way! Highly recommended!
Kindest regards Edra and Andy :-)

Great fun especially for first timers. Would have helped if the address to meet at is more prominent on the voucher.
