Owner description: Our two-wheeled “strolls” can be personalized to your tastes and interests and can take place during the day or at night. These guided tours can be conducted in Portuguese, Spanish, English, French, Italian, and German. Other languages can also be arranged. Segway Tejo combines a cultural visit with freedom of movement and the liberty to choose your own route. Because we love the city that has given us so much, our vehicles are 100% electric. We promote enviromental protection and uban sustainability. Our Segways are designed for all ages and physical conditions. All tours are preceeded by a familiarization and practice session. You will see that riding on two wheels is just as natural as walking on two feet with the advantage that you can climb the hills of Lisbon in the blink of an eye. The city is everybody’s; the speed is yours. When you get on board of one of our Segways, the most inaccessable streets and alleys of the city are within your reach. There is no limit to your discovery; it is everything that Lisbon has to offer. Our guides are charged with showing you the best of the city they know so well in a fun, captivating, and joyful way. We are headquartered in the district of Mouraria, and it is here that we begin our tours. Transportation to our facilities is also available from one of our comfortable and fun ecotuk tuks, our alternatively you can simply walk from the Praca do Martim Moniz (where there is a Metro stop), which will not take more that 5 minutes.

After a late introduction to Segway’s in Madrid last autumn we decided a tour of Lisbon was an absolute must. We booked online as part of our cruise excursion but this can be done easily direct through Tejo online.
We booked a 2 hour tour, and I need to now qualify that we are both either side of 50 so please don’t think this activity is only for the fit and energetic.
As I have said following our Madrid Segway experience, these are highly sophisticated computer controlled gyroscopes that will hold you upright, all you need to do is force a movement - lean forward, left or right and you have it mastered.
In fairness, our guide Hugo was brilliant. We each had a training session where he tested our competence before starting the tour.
Off we set and Hugo was giving us a more informative tour than you could achieve on foot.
We loved every moment and will definitely do more. Highly recommend this tour with Hugo.

It was a great way to sight see and cover more areas than on foot. Especially fun going thru the steep hills and narrow streets of Alfama. Personal guide- Jose was very informative and knowledgeable about the scenic viewpoints, history and local perspectives.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Segway tour of Lisbon. Hugo was our excellent guide, personable and knowledgeable, he entertained us every minute.

There are some steep hills in the city, which I wasn't accustomed to handling on a Segway. But I never had any trouble and quickly came to think of the machine as my trusty steed.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this tour, it was one of the standout highlights of our vacation.

We took the 2 1/2 hr tour with Dennis. This gave us a great overview of the city, both old and new. Dennis was informative and easy to get along with. We learned a lot about Lisbon and Portugal's history. Doing this tour at the beginning of our time in Lisbon was the best way to get orientated and plan some of the things to do and see while in Lisbon.
Great value for money and much more fun than walking or sitting in a vehicle.

We booked this tour mainly because it was the only one to last two and a half hours. Such long tours usually are totally worth it because you have much time to drive the Segway after the instructions. We already drove Segways some times before so the instructions were made pretty short for us but yet very good.

The guide was very nice and knew a lot about the historic city of Lisbon, called Alfama. During the tour you see some of the most beautiful places of Lisbon, including the highest lookout, the famous Golden-Gate-Bridge-Coloured bridge Ponte 25 de Abril.

All in all, I can absolutely recommend a tour with these guys. The service was great and the guide was very nice.
