Enjoyed the Rio Formosa Park by Segway Tour. It was great fun, informative and easy to ride the Segway. We have nice weather, even though it was end of November. The park and scenery were amazing and Nelson and his team very helpful. Even dropped us off at the Shopping Mall after the tour. Would definitely take another tour if... More

I tried Bird watching tour for the second time(already experienced 2 years ago). Handling the vehicle itself is so much fun but what I really enjoyed was that the amazing landscape of the course(salt pans, golf course, very posh vilas etc). Our guide Nelson was very nice and highly informative, and took a lot of pictures/videos of us riding segway.... More

My family went on the Ria Formosa by Segway tour and we absolutely loved it. Our ages range from 8 to 63 and it was pure unadulterated fun for every single one of us. Our guide Nelson was fun informative and made sure we were all able to safely manoeuvre our segway. The scenery was absolutely stunning with beautiful views... More

We had a fabulous time on the segways. Definitely worth it if in the area. Instructor was extremely kind, patient and helpful. With his experience, he took my camera phone and took lots of photos and videos as keepsakes of the experience, which was a nice bonus. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, we were all beginners in my... More

Booked while on holiday and communication via email were speedy and informative, we took the sun set bird watching tour as complete novices and the expert tuition soon had us zipping along enjoyed the spectacular views, the guys who run algarvebysegway are true professionals and would so recommend them A1 all the way.

Great morning with Andreas exploring Ria Formosa nature reserve. Andreas was brilliant and made sure we were both entertained and safe. Lots of info about the area and suggested a lovely beach front cafe for lunch. Highly recommended.

We can thoroughly recommend booking a Segway tour with Algarve By Segway! We had such a brilliant afternoon. We decided to choose the Ria Formosa tour around Quinta Do Lago as it is mostly off road, which we thought would be best for novices like us! Our guide Andre was just great - friendly, patient, ready to help us with... More

My husband and 5 year old son were keen to try this, so I contacted Nelson before our holiday and booked the Vilamoura to Quarteira Tour. We met up at the designated point and Nelson had us all on the Segways practicing in an open space quickly and safely. We all got the hang of them quite quickly and were... More

I was looking for something the whole family would enjoy. (Including two teenagers) Checked out these reviews and thought we would give it a try. We all had a fantastic morning and we went all along the coast. It was superb, even got the thumbs up from the boys. Neilson was great, he was there on time and finished right... More

We had a great time on the bird watching tour with Algarve by Segway and it was the highlight of our holiday. The segways were easy to get the hang of and we were quickly travelling through golf course, woodland, lakes and salt flats, with something new to see every few hundred yards. Nelson was a very knowledgeable guide and... More
