Great and Informative Gastro Tour of Faro on a Segway

Nelson took care of us, made us sample some of the local delicacies whilst learning something about Faro. Nice little Team Building event for work. Thanks

We did a tout with Nelson at Sagres, and had the most amazing time. Nelson made sure we were all familiar and confident with the subway before he took us out. We then did an extensive tour round the fort, beach, town and harbour, with Nelson keeping his eyes on us, taking pictures for us and pointing out places of... More

These are great fun and a great way to get around. The guide (ours was Nelson) will take care to make sure you are comfortable with the machine, they are easy but its good to have the guide with you. We took the tour from Sagres that included the fortress and the harbour. The views are spectacular and the guide... More

Nelson the leader was very patient and supportive teaching us the basics. IAfter a while he increased the speed of the Segwaywhich enabled us to cover more... More

We took a nature tour around Quinta Do Lago; great scenery, salt lakes, birds and more. Nelson, the tour leader, is a very helpful and cheerful individual who's obviously enjoying taking you around and teaching the basics of the Segway to those less familiar with. A couple of hours riding the Segway is definitely a good alternative to usual sunbathing... More

The best part of our holiday, we all loved it! Easy to book, so much fun and our guide was great. We had such a laugh and learnt lots. Thoroughly recommend it and we will book again next time we are in the Algarve.

Having never been on a segway, this is a "must do" We arrived at 9 in the morning and had 3 segways to ourselves plus our guide Nelson who was brilliant. An hour and a half later we had toured the lakes of Quinto do Lago at our leisure with lots of interesting facts and scenic routes

We really enjoyed this, I was quite nervous on the Segway at first but the instructor was great an reassured me. Was good to see other areas around vilamoura.

If there is one thing you must do on your holiday in the Algarve then this is it! The birdwatching Segway tour on the Ria Formosa is absolutely fantastic. We were met by Nelson and Andre and shown how to handle the Segways. As first timers there were a few nerves but the two of them were very attentive and... More

Organised via a general tours agent found around Vilamoura Marina. Met in the Vilamoura McDonalds car park where the Segways and guide arrived in a van. We had twice before used Segways in Chicago and New Orleans so only a refresher needed in the car park and a circuit around nearby before the guide opened the Segways up to the... More
