    Receive full instruction and training on riding the segway if it is your first time using the vehicle. Start in the Cais do Sodré area and cross the majestic Praça do Comercio, where you will visit the Old Town district of Alfama. Alfama is Lisbon's oldest quarter. Spread over the south-eastern slope of one of the hills of Lisbon, the picturesque neighbourhood is composed of a maze of narrow streets, winding alleyways, and steep flights of steps.  One of the few areas of Lisbon, which wasn't destroyed by the massive 1775 earthquake, Lisbon's old quarter offers many things to see. Explore tightly-packed lanes, small archways, and stone-paved terraces which are full of character and great fun to explore.

    We chose the old town tour for 90 mins. It was fascinating from start to finish and our guide was excellent providing a running commentary along with many historical facts. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lisbon.

What a recommendation. Did this trip with brothers and sisters. Seen a lot of Lisbon and what a nice guide we had. He really took his time with us and was enthusiastic about telling us. We have been on the road longer than the 3 hours we paid for, but this was no problem either. The hills were easy to do because of the e-bikes. All in all, especially do it!

Everything Well organized. Nice drinks, friendly guides. They know a lot about the Lisbon history and were fluent English speakers. We had a great time. And it was fun to be able to lay down on the boat. They had blankets for after the sunset when it gets colder on the boat. Obrigado!

What a fantastic way to experience Lisbon and in particular the area around Belem. We learnt about the history, about the food and the people of Lisbon through the centuries. Can’t recommend it more highly!

... experience the sunset in the Tagus on a sailboat, with a glass of wine and nice weather and drive past the sights in Lisbon ... and that totally decelerates .... A super nice experience!

It was such a nice experience. The staff was very friendly. It was much better than I expected. I highly recommended.
