We had an amazing tour with Eduardo. We were both beginners but Eduardo was patient and helpful allowing us to become more confident on the Segway. The tour took in some wonderful sights, Eduardo was informative and enthusiastic when talking about the history of Alfama. One of the highlights of our trip to Lisbon. Thank you Eduardo :)

We recently had a chance to make our first experience with a segway in combination with an interesting sightseeing tour. Peter is a great guide, who is very committed to his guests- reliable, knowledgeable and turns your tour into an amusing and remarkable experience. Thanks to the team, we left the segway adventure with a big smile and lots of new impressions of the city.
