Food Tour by SegwayThe Cooltours - Lisbon
One heck of a delicious tour! Get ready to discover all the historic main attractions, a selection of traditional Portuguese tapas and superb panoramic views.
Segways may seem impossible to ride as a bystander but, as soon as our tour guides spend 2 minutes with you, you’ll be gliding effortlessly along Lisbon’s difficult pavement. Discover the true fun of hovering over the rest of Lisbon.
This tour will focus on the most authentic neighborhoods, the perfect places to find traditional taverns and amazing restaurants.
In Alfama you’ll experience the real Lisbon, with its charismatic (and intense) people, cats sleeping on windowsills, twisting streets and blind alleyways where the roofs almost touch each other. Alfama is the oldest district in Lisbon and Portugal's own musical genre – FADO – can be heard almost everywhere in this neighborhood.
Going up the hill until Graça you’ll find breathtaking panoramic views at the famous belvedere “Nossa Senhora do Monte”.
After a moment to relax at the top of the viewpoint we’ll start going down the hill to salute Mouraria, Lisbon’s most multiethnic neighborhood. Here you may find all types of restaurants because about a fifth of the population is from Asia, mainly from China, Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.
Now, the most important detail of this tour, the tasting experiences! We’ll take you to Lisbon’s great Cafés and Taverns, important landmarks of this city where you’ll be able to have some snacks and drinks.
