The tour was so fun! It was better to see the city in e-scooter rather than walking. Lucas (our guide) was very friendly and accommodating. He made sure we are safe all the time and even gave us good restaurant recommendations. We booked a shared tour but we were the only ones at the time so it felt like a private tour to us. Highly recommend this tour especially to those up for some cool e-scooter experience.

Great service and very laid back. Took our teenage daughters and they had a blast.

Nice tour with David. Accommodated our requests and was very friendly.

We had a very nice guide and the scooters are very easy to operate.

Great guide, good gear and nice tour around the port area
