Wat je gaat doen

Starting near Mercado da Ribeira to Cais do Sodré area and crossing the majestic Praça do Comercio, we will visit the Old Town district of Alfama. Spread over the south-eastern slope of the hill crowned by Castelo de São Jorge, the picturesque neighbourhood is composed of a maze of narrow streets, winding alleyways, and steep flights of steps. Its Kasbah-like layout is deliberate - this is the city's ancient Arab district. One of the few areas of Lisbon that wasn't destroyed by the big 1755 earthquake, Lisbon's old quarter offers many things to see. The tightly-packed lanes, small archways, and stone-paved terraces are full of atmosphere and great fun to explore. Besides the castle, there are several historic 17th-century churches in the vicinity, as well as the city's impressive cathedral. Alfama also wakes up at night. Some of the city's most authentic restaurants open their doors to serve delicious traditional cuisine and plenty of bonhomie, with traditional Fado houses where this unique Portuguese musical expression can be appreciated in romantic surroundings.
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.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will meet up near Mercado da Ribeira in Cais do Sodré, an important and bohemian neighborhood that connects everyone in the city. From there, we will be heading to Praça do Comércio (Commerce Square), right in front of Lisbon's Downtown, and then to the traditional and mazed Alfama district . After wandering around this lovely neighbourhood and explain all that locals love to do there, we will make our way back to Cais do Sodré.

The tour and facts should be corrected and improved. There is much to tell about the locations and some wrong information provided to be reviewed. The safety of the tour in the streets with traffic specially with kids or not experienced people with this equipment need to be improved and considered seriously. The cleaning and maintenance of equipment and disinfection of helmets and sitways handlers should be done. Unfortunately we can’t recommend this experience at this stage to other people.

Our guide was great! Took extra care with our 11 year old till she got a hang of the sitway. Our guide took pics and let us take time to explore a historic church. Also gave suggestions for lunch and dinner.

Raphaela was my guide today. The weather was perfect for this tour and the Sitways were really fun (easier to use than a Segway) and made the Old Town hills and cobbles so easy to navigate. She offered extra information, stops, photos and video along the way. Raphaela was very personable and funny. We had a lot of laughs!

Pour avoir déjà fait du segway, j’ai préféré la version debout. Ces modèles nous ont paru trop bas...Mais ça reste un moyen de visite très sympa. Merci pour les explications.
