We fell in love with Lisbon while on our 5 day visit there during the worldwide Rotary Convention and managed to see many of the sites. On our last day we decided to book for the Lisbon by Segway tour of Medieval Lisbon.

Never having used a Segway before, my partner was a bit nervous but Alex, one of our guides together with Miguel, kitted us out and took us and our Segways to a little square just round the corner from the office for our "lesson". It is amasing how quickly one gets the feel of the Segway and before long both of us were very confident and itching to give it a go.

We waited for the rest of the group, four English girls on a 30th birthday trip to Lisbon, to arrive and undertake their training and then we were off.

We followed Alex Alex with Miguel at the end and went on a winding journey through the old parts of Lisbon, many of which we had not yet visited, through streets too narrow for cars. It was a great experience and a lovely way to see Lisbon. Alex and Miguel were excellent, the Segways were great fun and we saw parts of Lisbon we would probably not have seen.

The Segway tour was one of the highlights of our trip and I would recommend it to anyone. I would have been happy to take another tour immediately.

Me and my girlfriend went to Lisbon first time and tried also for the first time the segway! We did the delicious Tour and all in all: AWESOME!!! Very professional, cool and laid back guys...Segways are in perfect condition, small group of 4 People and our guide Alex was really friendly, patient and knew all the History and background you need to know of Lisbon! The Tour was supposed to be around 2hours...we went for four hours instead and it was great! Tasted typical food and green wine! And for the one who are scared of driving the Segway...we had an American Lady with us and she obviously had no coordination at all! But Alex was very patient and taught her everything she need to know! So she was ready to go! Lisbon is the perfect city to do such a Tour! We saw a Lot of the city and felt pretty familiar with the Most important places there!

We took the 'sailor' tour with Pace who was a great guide who wanted us to have a huge amount of fun in a safe way.
The tour was well planned with lots of things to see and talk about as well as plenty of opportunity to ride the Segway as it is supposed to be ridden for fun and not just a fast way to get from one end of the town to the other.
Pace made us feel like he was taking friends out and showing them his city and we had a great social conversation over the Pasteis de Belem.
Everyone in the team and office was so helpful and came up with great suggestions on what to do on the remaining days in the city and some great places to eat away from the tourist options. All were making a great effort to ensure we enjoyed not just the Segway, but the whole of of time in the city. Thank you everyone.

Lisbon by Segway is by far the best way to see the historic neighborhoods of Lisbon. This was our first time riding segway, and it was very easy to learn. Our guide Gonçalo was very knowledgeable and professional. We signed up for the "delicious" tour. We enjoyed the food and drinks along the way. I highly recommend taking this tour when in Lisbon.
