What you'll do

This is a unique Lisbon experience, discover the hidden parts of the city, taste authentic food and have laugh on this weird, but fun vehicle.

After leaving the starting point, we will stop at Praça do Comércio and introduce you Lisbon history and curiosities. We will visit some charismatic neighbourhoods located in the old town of the city, such as Alfama, Graça or Mouraria.

Alfama is Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood considered the historic soul of Lisbon and it's steep, cobblestoned lanes stand just as they were in medieval times.

Going up to Graça we’ll find breathtaking panoramic views at the belvederes of Senhora do Monte. After a moment to enjoy the view and relax at the top of the viewpoint we’ll start going down the hill to salute Mouraria, Lisbon’s most multiethnic neighborhood. Once we have made our segway wheels ride enough we will return back to the city center.

All along with the experience, we will let you taste some of the most authentic Portuguese flavors such as a pastel de nata, a codfish cake (pastel de bacalhau), a sweet cherry liqueur, smoked meats and cheese accompanied with a delicious Portugese wine.

We cannot wait to meet you!

Olá! My name is João and I’m a Lisbon-holic. In Portuguese we’re called “Lisboetas”, we’re the crazy localswho can have a beer and a “bifana” at any time of day, who greet anyone and everyone that passes by on the street.

I'm the founder of Boost Portugal, a portuguese company with more than 10 years providing cool experiences focused bout Lisbon history and people.
I share this adventure with Manuel, Peter, Simão, Mariana and Filipa.
We want to share our stories, our most treasured streets and sights, and our very favorite spots, so we embrace this experience because we feel those beautiful and special places are worth to share.

We’re all wanderers, some of us were born and bred in Lisbon, others moved here after visiting and falling in love with the city, but we all share the same passion!

Great experience which felt unique. A great balance of trying something new and learning about the medieval part of the city in a fun way. Our tour guide took plenty of time to make sure every participant was fully confident on the Segway before setting off, and at every stage made sure we were having a great time and were safe. Our tour guide Bjorn made the activity special - really knowledgeable and informative and great to talk to. Would definitely do this again.

Our guide Peter is fantastic. Aside from his patience in teaching us newbies to segways, he would make sure that everyone is safe and enjoying the experience at the same time. His knowledge of history is impressive and the events and trivia that he shares makes everyone interested! Navigating around the streets of Lisbon can be challenging but that adds to the adventure and this tour would definitely provide the most value of your time and money.

This was a super tour with Peter. We started with a briefing and then had a great time riding the Segway. We visited special places in the city such as the Alfama and Graça neighborhood and also had the opportunity to taste several delicacies. Peter is passionate about what he does and we really enjoyed his company. Thank you!

This Segway experience was great! We were a little late and the host waited for us with no problem. Peter is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about life and life, he made us feel very welcome. If you have no experience, you can practice first. We feel comfortable because it is easy to learn and ride. The experience ended with several different tastings, such as traditional cheese and chorizo ​​or red and white wine. Débora Baungartner
