We weren't really sure what to expect with the Segway foodie tour, however from the very beginning to the end, we were trained on how to use the Segway (it's easy- don't be afraid) and entertained by our wonderful guide Alexandre.
We covered far more ground than any other tour could provide us and learnt a lot about Lisbon's history, people and food.
The tour we chose included 4 stops to sample local tipples and food.
The best way to experience Lisbon, and great value for money. We can't wait to go back and try the yellow cars. We thoroughly recommend it.

My husband and I were in Lisbon for a short while and we are so glad we did the Segway tour which allowed us to see a lot of Lisbon. David was great guide, sharing fun stories along the way and also great advice for the rest of our time there. Being foodies - we did the Delicious tour where we stopped for pastries, green wine, snacks, coffee. Definitely recommend Lisbon by Segway. Fantastic experience overall!

Paulo our guide was great on the sailor tour. He even wore the sailor's hat we took for him!!! He took us all the way from the city centre, along the water, to Belem. This is where we tasted the famous pastries. He couldn't have been more attentive and nothing was too much for him.

The Segway tour is fun, informative and very good value. You feel well briefed before you set off on the tour.

I would use this company again and again as they are professional with a fun side.

I agree wholeheartedly with all the other positive reviews. Young David da Silva had us up and running on our Segways in 20 minutes and he took great care of us on the tour. We cruised the beautiful waterfront and David found us a table at the famous Bellem cafe where they serve the best custard tarts in the world.

A Segway is no more dangerous than a bicycle but accidents happen and my wife miscalculated, clipped a bollard and fell near the end of our tour in the late afternoon. David's boss Lionel explained that all medical costs were on the companies insurance and that David would take us straight to hospital. David took us to hospital and stayed with us for about 3 hours while x-rays and a visit to the orthopedic surgeon were undertaken. Nothing broken but medication was prescribed. By now it was late and David had a taxi drive around for 30 minutes until a pharmacy could be found to fill the script. David delivered us safely back to our apartment. David has kept in touch by email as we have continued our travels across Europe.

This is a very genuine business that takes customer care seriously and we take our hat off to David and Lionel . By the way our party has continued to enjoy Segway tours across several cities subsequently - best way to get a quick ground level grip on a city that there is!

..if you have not seen it from a Segway! We were in Lisbon in December. Our day fluctuated between drizzle and sun. The staff at LBS couldn't have been more accommodating. First, they wanted to make sure the weather was safe for our tour. When we determined it was, they made sure to take plenty of ponchos just in case the weather turned while we were out. Paulo Martins was FABULOUS! He took us up and down and all around visiting unique sites in the city from interesting vistas. He provided lots of interesting information, especially about the neighborhoods through which we traveled. These weren't facts just blurted out; they were stories from firsthand experience. Our food stops were superb! Hard to imagine drinking green wine and port at 10 in the morning, but why not! It was good to do more than just "see" the city. The food stops allowed us to meet and interact with the people, Paulo's friends and associates, as we made our way on the tour. We were very fortunate as on that day at that time we were his only tourists! It made our interactions that much more personal and enjoyable. We have previously taken a Segway tour in Cartagena (which I reviewed and highly recommended previously.) I put this experience right up there and am growing more convinced each time that until you see a city by Segway, you haven't seen the city!
