Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your Segway tour begins by meeting your expert local guide at a convenient location in central Lisbon. First, get acquainted with your new ride. Segways are simple to learn and are operable on virtually any pedestrian terrain, making it an ideal way to explore a lot of ground without getting exhausted. Additionally, you’ll be able to reach areas that many walking and bus tours cannot. Listen up at the brief safety orientation, take it for a test spin, and be on your way. 

Follow your friendly guide to some of Lisbon’s most magnificent monuments. Wheel your way to Alfama, one of Lisbon’s oldest and most charming neighborhoods. Here, learn about the area’s history while rolling down its narrows cobblestone alleys and meeting local shopkeepers. 

Glide on over to the stunning Sé de Lisboa Cathedral, one of the most visited landmarks in Lisbon. Listen closely as your guide gives you a crash course in Portuguese architecture, pointing out the mix of different influences, like Gothic and Baroque styles. You won’t want to miss what’s next—the  medieval Castelo de São Jorge. Put your Segway into high gear to zoom up the hill upon which this stunning work of architecture is perched. From here, snap a few photos of the spectacular view that stretches all the way to the Tagus River.

Then, get to know Lisbon’s local characters when you meet local shop owners in town. Finally, try a sampling of local Portuguese cuisine, such as pastries, ice cream, and ginjinha (a local liqueur). Ask your guide any remaining questions you may have, as you make your way back to the meeting point, where your Segway tour of Lisbon ends.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Rua dos Douradores
Check-in at Boost Portugal.
Stop At:  
Alfama
Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhood and the most charming one, it’s considered the historic soul of Lisbon and its steep, cobblestoned lanes stand just as they were in medieval times. This area is best known for its fado houses and the great festivities of Lisbon which honors “Santo António” (St. Anthony) during the month of June, luring thousands of people into the streets. This neighbourhood resisted to the terrible earthquake of 1755 and this is one of the main reasons that contributed to the preservation of its authenticity. This charming area retains some of the Moorish atmosphere with its alleys, staircases and clothes drying on the windows.
Duration: 10 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Miradouro da Graca (Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen)
On the highest of the seven hills, Graça is located next to the iconic São Jorge Castle and this area is famous for its two beautiful viewpoints: Senhora do Monte belvedere and Graça belvedere, also known as Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen viewpoint. During the 20th century this neighbourhood became a residential area for factory workers mainly. At that time this neighbourhood was characterized by its courtyards, traditional taverns and grocery stores, hosted popular festivities and the first public school was founded here (Voz do Operário) as well as the arrival of the iconic 28 tram.

Best experience we had in Lisbon!

I was a little apprehensive about this activity because I fall even while walking but Fred took his time with me and made sure that I was comfortable before we took off. The sightseeing was great and we got to go to places that would have been very difficult to walk. We enjoyed local treats and even shared some tapas and wine at the end. I would highly recommend this activity. Ask for Fred!

First Segway Trip

My husband and I were the only two on the afternoon trip with Yury. Yury was fantastic. He was very patient as he taught us how to ride the Segways and was an engaging and enthusiastic guide as he showed us some of the main sights of Lisbon. The Segways were great fun and easy to ride once we had got the hang of it. We sampled some Gina (cherry liquor) along the way and had a lovely selection of meats, olives, breads and cheese laid out for us in a nice room one we returned to base. We were very glad of the cold drink offered too as it had been a hot but interesting journey. Yury certainly lived up to the great reviews he has had already. He is so relaxed and friendly.

Yury Made The Tour Even More Special!

Yury, our tour guide, was excellent and beautiful to look at. I've done Segway tours in 7 cities in Europe and this one was one of the best. I was scheduled for the taste of Lisbon tour, but surprisingly, I was the only one booked for that tour. I was placed in another group without the taste part of the tour, but at the end Yury took me to what is now one of my favorite places to eat in Lisbon called Cerveja Canil. You must try the "My Balls" (Cheeseburger balls wrapped in bacon) and "Qiueijo Alvares Caral" (Crispy breaded cheese served with rosemary honey). DE-LISH!! And the lady bartender is super cool. Lisbon is all hills, this is the best way to see it quickly and save your poor feet for the return to your hotel.

Highlight of our trip and would do it again! Mario and Jessica are wonderful!

This was our very first Segway Tour and we absolutely loved it! Our family of 4 had never been on a segway before but our tour guides, Mario and Jessica were very patient and helpful in assisting us with learning to ride. We were able to practice in the Square prior to being led into the streets of Lisbon. It was a bit challenging but exciting to ride the uphill, downhill and narrow streets. Mario and Jessica remained attentive to our group throughout the tour to ensure our safety and comfort level. Mario is extremely knowledgeable and provided very detailed information throughout various historical sites and we enjoyed our food stop to experience some of the local favorite wine, cheeses and tapas. He provided great tips on local restaurants and other places to visit while in Lisbon. Jessica also had a great personality and held great conversations with me re: our trip itinerary, where we are from, etc. This was definitely the highlight of our tour in Portugal and look forward to doing this again someday. Thank you Mario and Jessica for making this experience such a memorable one for our family!

4 ladies did the tour with Maria our guide and had a fantastic time. Great way to see the city and Sample some delicious local food at the same time. Segway riding is simple once you work out how to balance. Plenty of time to practice before we set off and we never looked back even on the really steep inclines and declines. Great day, great guide and great company
