We had a great Segway tour in Sagres with Nelson. It was a lot of fun and we and the kids enjoyed it very much. And to drive it on the beach was so nice! Thank you and we will return next year for another tour. Katja, Richard, Joel and Alyssa

We had such a great afternoon with Nelson who is great fun, patient and very knowledgeable about the Ria Formosa area. We had our own personal guided 1 1/2 hour tour which appealed greatly to students and parents alike (even less coordinated ones). Highly recommend it. Nelson is also surprisingly good at first aid!! Thank you for so many laughs.

We've done a few of Nelson's Segway tours, always taking a different location, and always wanting more! This time we climbed to Monchique- the Algarves highest point. A fun way to have our 10 and 13 year experience unbelievable views, mountain air, gorgeous Spring scents and the joy of winding down the mountain to the Oasis of the thermal Spa.... More

We had a tour with Nelson on 30th March with our friends, it was absolutely a nice change to learn how to handle this machine and to make a tour through the reservate. Nelson has a nice way to treat people and is very clear in his explanations. We had a very good time, the weather was helping too!! Thanks... More

Organised a segway tour in Vilamoura for 5 of us on a hen do. Was great fun and really quite straightforward to use! Andre was our tour guide and he was very friendly and patient. He took us around the smaller, more local streets of Quarteira which we wouldn't have seen otherwise - we even stopped to have a browse... More

The trip was a birthday present for my granddaughter`s birthday.Seven of us went. Aged from nearly twelve, to seventy one. I was apprehensive, as first, though everyone else, took to using segways, like ducks to water. However, our guide, Nelson, was so patient, and kind, that after a while, I really enjoyed the trip. We saw such a lot, that... More

Me and my sister (both over 60), took my daughter and her friend (both 14 year-old)went on the bird watching segway tour. The instructor, Nelson, was very enthusiastic, friendly, and knowledgeable, and made sure we all had a great time. I gave him my camera, and he took loads of photos and videos for us on the way around. The... More

I purchased a Segway Rally experience with Nelson for my partners 50th birthday. And what a great hour and a half they had!! With only limited use of a Segway before they all came back looking very professional and confident and said what a great host Nelson was. I would recommend this to anyone for sightseeing and a fun experience....might... More

We are both in early 60s and this was our first time on Segways. We picked the Ria Formosa tour because we were afraid of trying to 'learn' in built up or crowded areas. Andre, our guide, was brilliant and had us up and running in no time. Fantastic machine -so easy to ride, fantastic place to visit and overall... More
