Red Tour is a funny and autonomous way to explore Lisbon. It rents electric buggies with a GPS system and an audio guide that tells you the directions to follow and provides information about the various points of interest and trivia about Lisbon, even unknown for many locals. There are four of these preset buggy tours. You can choose between the Old Lisbon Tour, covering the neighbourhoods of the Lisbon Cathedral and St. George’s Castle (it takes about 1h15), the Belém Tour, passing through Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower and the Coach Museum (1h30), the Lisbon Soho Style Tour, between Chiado and Príncipe Real areas (1h15) and the Central Axis Tour, from Restauradores to Parque Eduardo VII (1h15).
Red Tour also rents Segways. With this vehicle, even more versatile than the buggy, you can choose from three tours already defined: the By the river Tour, from Praça do Comércio to the Belém Tower (2h00), the Tour in the Boulevard, from Praça do Comércio to Parque Eduardo VII (1h15) and the Core of Alfama Tour, which cruises through Casa dos Bicos, the National Pantheon and São Vicente de Fora Church (1h15). Red Tour also rents electric bikes, in a tour called Bicycle by the River alongside the Tagus River, from Praça do Comércio to the Belém Tower (2h00). All vehicles are ecological due to their electrical locomotion, which means that they are quiet and do not cause discomfort to residents.
