What you'll do

Be ready to explore the past, sitting on the future!
> We'll jump on the Sitway and ride along the riverside of the district of Belem. The Portuguese are know to have been fantastic explorers, so prepare yourself to be one too (although, in a more comfortable way!), as we will pass various spots and monuments related to the legendary Age of Discoveries, some with more of 500 years like the Tower of Belem and Jerónimos Monastery. At one end of the district, where the Tagus river meets the sea, be ready to discover one of the best least-know sightseeing spots in Lisbon, right next to a state-of-the-art research center.
>MAAT, Fado and 25th of April have nothing to do with custard tarts right? But I will explain you how this all correlate during the tour.
> We will also talk about Lisbon city center and If you have a short stay, I will show you all the main points that should be visited. If you have more time, I'll add the best tips for the rest of your trip. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Come prepared for lots of fun!

Hi! Im hosting tours since 2016! '' Alfacinha de Gema'' - Translation can sound something like: ''Little lettuce since birth'' (I will explain you what it means on the tour), I Love Lisbon. I left 10 years of Communication & Advertising Agencies and I decided to share my passion with you. Also obsessed for Gadgets I found a way to take you into an experience you can't find in another place in the world! In Lisbon, you can see the past seated on the future: ridding Sitways! An eco-friendly vehicle that is basically a segway, but seated. How cool is that? Bring your love, your friends, your kids or your grandma, this experience is for all fearless souls that are always looking for something different (& super easy!), Let's have some fun together shall we?
Gonçalo and Raphaela share my love for Lisbon and sometimes they help me host you.

Where you'll be

All of our tour will be around Belem, and we will start and finish it in the same place, on the waterfront next to the Discoveries Monument.
We will then follow the river both ways to explore both ends of the district, with it's museums, monuments, gardens and inconic views like the Tower of Belem, Jeronimos Monastery and the 25th of April Bridge, always with the Tagus river and it's fantastic sights by our side.

This was by far the highlight of our visit to Lisbon! Unique experience in exploring Belem with a knowledgeable host. Joana was absolutely wonderful in communicating and providing directions to the meeting place. We arrived just on time and she was great at quickly training us how to safely use the sitways. She was very good at understanding how involved she needed to be with us and gave my family space to enjoy the experience while also providing valuable information about the places we saw. We had Joana all to ourselves as during COVID not many tourists were in Portugal and it was a real treat! 5* experience, would definitely recommend!!!!

It was very special experience with the sitway which I would have never tried except here. The weather was perfect and I really enjoyed.

Not sure how it can get any better. What a wonderful and informative morning spent with Sitgo on our first visit to Lisbon. There is no better way for a first time visitor to see Lisbon than to spend it on a Sitway under the guidance of Joana. By far the most informative and interesting tour we have experienced to date. The guide knowledge of the history of this great city was beyond belief. Having none experience riding Sitways She was so kind and patience to help us. I highly suggest and recomend you this experience, you will not only find an enjoyable and safe journey around Lisbon but you will receive one of the most inclusive history lessons from (who we refer to in our home as) the "Professor on Two Wheels". This is a must do experience for any Lisbon visitor. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
