A fun trip with a chance t see the Ria Formosa with a local guide. We were collected from out hotel and taken to the Park. It was the wrong time of year to see lots of birds but we did see egrets, spoonbills and various waders. I would recommend this trip.

Andreas was so patient with all four of us on a sunny morning in January. We travelled through the Rio Formosa in Faro for almost two hours and enjoyed every minute. We saw Flamingos and the iconic Purple Swamp Hen and the whole place was so peaceful and beautiful. The exclusive golf course kept the men interested and seeing €7... More

I took my 12 year old daughter and 16 year old son to meet Nelson at McDonalds Villamoura. A quick linstruction in the car park followed by a slow safe start to our trip. Then Nelson took the limit off the Segways and the fun really started. Beautiful Villamoura and Quateira on the comfort and fun of a Segway. Nelson... More

We did the Vilamoura trip today. Just the best fun. Nelson, our guide couldn't have been nicer. The Segway is so easy to master - we all loved it. We got to see the fish market and taste a delicious local custard cake. Nelson gave us information on the history of Vilamoura and Quarteira. He took some great video and... More

My boyfriend and I did the Cultural Faro Tour which we thoroughly enjoyed and I would definitely recommend. The Segway only takes a few minutes to adapt to, and then it almost becomes second nature. The routes we took included pavements, roads and non-concrete paths. Our tour guide Andre was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable which contributed to the overall... More

Travelled around Vilamoura and then into Quateira along the paths. Andrea was a great instructor with a fantastic knowledge and sense of humour. About 80 minutes of segwaying with a little history and knowledge of the two towns.

Can't recomend this highly enough. I did the Ria Formosa Natural Park tour. The scenary was great and the guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic. It was easy to get the hang of the segways and it's such a fun way to get around. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

I had 7 hours to wait at Faro airport until the friend I was meeting arrived so looked into what to do and the Segway Tour appealed. I'd never been on a Segway before but decided to go for it: Nelson was so helpful and answered all my emails immediately. He guided me towards the Nature Reserve Tour rather than... More

We were brought around by Andreas, the nicest guy you could meet. It took just minutes to feel comfortable and I really didn't want to stop. We did the city tour. Nice and easy. We stopped to see the fish market and for a very warm delicious, cinnamon topoed, Portuguese custard tart. Yum! Your legs feel tingly afterwards. A little... More
