  • Lisbon: 2.5-Hour Hills Tour by Electric Bike

    1. Lisbon: 2.5-Hour Hills Tour by Electric Bike

    Explore some of the 7 hills of Lisbon by electric bike, and see more than you would on a conventional sightseeing tour. The easy-to-drive electric bikes are eco-friendly and boast a stylish vintage design that will turn heads as you explore the hidden sights of Alfama, Mouraria and Graça, some of the most historic neighborhoods of the Portuguese capital. Cruise up to panoramic observation points, passing antique shops and enchanting restaurants along the way, and get a unique perspective of the city and its people.

    Absolutely the best way to get close and experience the different boroughs of Lisbon! We thought it would be fun to try out electric bikes and get a quick tour. Wow! Bikes move you much faster than walking yet you still get the "on the ground" sense hearing sounds and feeling pace of people. The noisy little carts are cute but youre still an observer. Gliding through the super narrow roads in Alfama was definetly the highlight. DoubTful we would have taken the time to get so deep into this ancient and magical land of yore. Our guide was super knowledgible of history and maneuvering in traffic. Louis made it super safe and one of the top 3 memories of Lisbon!! We do plan on getting electric bikes~ Btw- we're active 65 ladies... so don't hesitate to go for this fantastic adventure !

Peter was a great guide, very informative tour highlighting the history of Lisbon. Pace was good for us first timers. May husband had various minor things go wrong with his bike, but other guide (sorry. I didn’t get his name) was quick to help. If you want a history lesson and fun ebike tour, we highly recommend.

Inish (sp?) was a wonderful tour guide and knew how to have fun and show us the sights. She took us all around the castle mountain and described all of the important parts of Lisbon and talked about its history and that of the Portuguese culture.

The tour was very informative and thanks to our guide Pattrik we received a lot of interesting information far beyond Lisbon.

Very interesting tour over 3 hills with comfortable E-bikes and very nice tour guide (Nuno)! Thanks a lot!
