WE DO NOT HAVE A SHOP OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, ALL BOOKINGS MUST BE MADE BY PHONE OR E-MAIL, THANK YOU. Silencetour provides segway guided eco-tours to small groups in the forest of Serra de Sintra, in Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.Unusually close to a major city like Lisbon, Sintra-Cascais Natural Park has managed to preserve throughout the territory surrounding the westernmost point of continental Europe and to coexist harmoniously nature and human presence, that, so near the capital, would inevitably make itself felt .In its territory, the park presents a stunning diversity of environments and landscapes, including sand dunes, forests, lakes, a rugged coastline where high cliffs are interspersed with lovely beaches, the imposing and Cabo da Roca, in the center, the magnificent Serra de Sintra and the entire area classified by UNESCO as a cultural landscape heritage of mankind.What can you see:From the point of view of the flora, fauna and geomorphology, this area is particularly rich and varied. Around the volcanic outcrop of Sintra on a land of origin of basalt, granite and limestone, grow many tree and shrub species, among which is still possible to find representatives of the primitive flora, such as oak, the executioner and the very characteristic nostalgia (Armeria pseudarmeria), which is endemic to the Portuguese flora.Among the most common animals are, the wild rabbit, fox, kestrel-to-back-tabby, badger, weasel, snake-ratter and dozens of bird species, and to highlight some rare examples of eagle-de-Bonelli and Peregrine falcon.

Booked at the last minute as we enjoyed a Lisbon city Segway tour and fell in love with Segways. This tour not only eclipsed the city tour but was the most memorable part of our vacation. Family of four (12 and 14 yr old children), we took the 2.5 hour tour (lasted about 3 hours) with Vasco (who is the... More

We had a couple of hours with Vasco to ourselves. He was patient and taught us how to operate the Segways, then took us on a magical tour through the clouds, up and down the hills and out into the sunshine. Fabulous scenery and a fabulous dvd reminder of our tour arrived within a couple of weeks. Highly recommended and... More

This was fantastic. Even with low clouds making the views limited it was well worth doing. Vasco picked us up from Cascais and is a great host, he makes you feel safe and also offers lots of information about the woods and mountains. And he ensures you also have fun. It may seem expensive but is well worth it and... More

We are a couple with a 13 year old son. Last year we did a Segway tour in Lisbon which we really enjoyed. This year we thought we would try off roading and booked with Silencetour. The owner operator Vasco was very helpful from the start. He speaks excellent English and is a good communicator. We had a quick refresher... More

We took the longer tour (3 hours) and enjoyed it so much! We got picked up at our hotel by the guide Vasco and he drove us up to the hills of Sintra. There we offloaded the segways and took off after a short warmup. We have driven segways several times in cities, but that is nothing like this! It... More

A 'must do' trip if you visit lisbon/cascais. Exploring the Sintra forest with Vasco as your guide is the best way to spend a few hours. Soo exciting and some of the best views on offer. Vasco was brilliant easily spotting and supporting the nervous in our party. He even picked us up and dropped us home. Brilliant.

I have been on a Segway several times before, but always as a city tour. This tour was off road and was something else! The principles are the same, but the terrain is much hillier and rugged – so much fun! Unlike city Segway tours there are no cars or people to avoid, there is no pollution and the peace... More

The Segway-Tour with Vasco was the best experience for our trip in Portugal/Cascais! He picked us up at our hotel in Cascais and drove us back afterwards. It was a beatiful and very funny Tour. We had a good introduction and all felt safe at the Segway-trip, and he was there to help all the time. Vasco was very nice... More

We had such an amazing day riding segways with Vasco. He's such an experienced and friendly guide and the route is really beautiful. Everyone visiting cascais should do this.
