This was our first Segway tour and we all loved the experience. It is especially a great way to see Porto since it is so hilly. The tour gave us an excellent overview of the city and the sites, and we then returned to those areas we wanted to enter and spend more time at. There was a mix-up in the beginning in that Viator printed the wrong address for the meeting spot. The company paid for our Uber to the correct location and lengthened the tour so we did not miss anything. Our tour guide was patient (I was slow in the beginning to get comfortable on the Segway), fun, and very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend the tour.

This was an excellent tour and such a great way to see the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip interesting with his historical knowledge. Highly recommended.

As 'seasoned Segway travelers' we jumped right in to explore Porto. We were lucky to have Woody as our guide, and this amazing tour was personalized as it was for me and my husband only! We covered so much ground in 3 hours seeing all the city highlights, which would have taken us several days to do on foot. Woody had a great command of English, and shared a wealth of knowledge, historical, architectural, etc. with us. A PERFECT way to see hilly Porto!!

First time using Segway and the experience was amazing. The stuff was not hard to learn to control and it was a perfect tool to Porto. Initially I had some issue with my booking , which was sorted out by the team. My lady guide was knowledgeable and caring therefore the tour was a wonderful experience. I will recommend the tour to others

There is no better way to see any city than on a Segway, in my opinion. Porto is a gorgeous place, but hilly. We covered the majority of the city and learned so much during our 3 hours. It's the best way to familiarize yourself with the city. Our guide was helpful and informed.

This tour was realy enjoyable which has much time to see tourist point (inside also) and enjoy driving segway. The guide Sio was very thoughtful. Always he stoped, then started some explanations. Thanks of this, we could catch the explanation of the city equally. I highly recommend.

Our guide did a wonderful job of getting us around Porto. He was not only a Segway guide, but also a History guide. My husband and I really enjoyed this activity and we could not have had a better guide.

Absolutely brilliant! As my friend and I are past the first flush of youth we were worried we would not be comfortable on segways. What a revalation, we soon felt quite as home on them and really enjoyed the tour. The guide was lovely and very knowledgable. I would reccomend it to anyone.

An absolutely amazing tour, all down to the excellence of our tour guide, Sid, who we had for both of our tours with the local tour company check out their Porto Food and Wine Tasting Tour also! Sid is a true local, born and raised in Porto, so he knows the city like the back of his hand - and it shows in the way he took us around the city. Endless interesting facts about each stop we made which includes the famous Lello's bookstore and an awesome ride along the Ponte Luis bridge and brilliant views along the way, with Sid's witty humour and vast city knowledge compensating for the dodgy weather we had on the day of our tour - it got to the point where we didn't even care about the weather because the tour was so fun! I could not recommend this tour highly enough, due to the brilliant experience we had on the Segways, racing around Porto having fun whilst also learning so much about the great city itself. Sid is an absolute wonder of a tour guide, and even though this is the very first tour I've ever done, all of the tours I will have from now on will be compared to the ones he took us on, because we had such a great time :D P.S. Please read my review on the Porto Food and Wine Tasting Tour, also provided by the local tour company. Would also highly recommend to ensure you sample some of the delicious Porto cuisine and wine!
