    This was where it all started. Meet in the heart of the city nestled on the oldest hill in Lisbon.

Hop out into Alfama, take a walk through this music quarter and listen to its cries. You will be able to see Roman remains, medieval houses that survived the 1755 earthquake, the magnificent Lisbon Cathedral, squares livened up by outdoor cafés and nooks and alleys reminiscent of Arab cities – Lisbon’s multicultural history has also left its mark here. In addition, enjoy incredible views of the city from the many natural windows that it offers.

    Our guide Bruno was great. It was the right amount of history and entertainment for us. We had opportunities along the way to get a snack and drink. The only bummer was that the rolled up plastic cover on the Tuk Tuk is right in your view and you either have to look up through the plastic window or bend down to look out under the cover. On the positive side, we were protected from the sun.

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!
