Cannot recommend this highly enough. Our guide Andreas was fantastic. He was very friendly and easy to chat with which made the tour more enjoyable. We started with a tour of villamoura to get accustomed to the segway and then it was on to quartiera to visit the fish market and the amazing beach. We stopped off at a little... More

Everyone can learn - it's simple. Our group had 3 young children from 7 years upwards and all had an unforgettable day. Spending time zipping along tracks, rivers, golf courses, among the rich and famous of Quinta do Lago was great fun. Nelson was a great leader who gave interesting information to the adults as well as keeping the children... More

our guide Nelson was perfect: he speaks an excellent English which helped when he explained everything that was to know about the area, the birds, etc... He managed to make us feel comfortable riding the Segways so really don't hesitate even if you never used one: you'll enjoy every minute like we did!

What a truly amazing way to see parts of the Algarve I have heard of but never been there to see. Nelson was a great host and was full of local knowledge and gave us some interesting facts about the culture, nature and resources .... Great fun and will certainly do this trip again. Everything was easy to understand and... More

This was a very special tour and experience. Our guide Nelson was caring and very informative. During our tour we had a wonderful view of the landscape of Quinta and found the segways a great way to get about. Although we are boring old farts 64-70 we found them easy to get on with. So we are going to order... More

We went on the Ria Formosa segway with family and friends ad it was great. I've been in Portugal for 8 years and haven't seen the places AlgarveBySegway took us to. Nelson was very good with the fast training and explaining as well as with the various local information! It was a great day enjoying the nature!

We did a tour with Algarve by Segway today. It was the best thing we have ever done. We went on the Birdwatching tour and Nelson, a professional Segway guide, picked us up at Faro island and guided us through the beautiful nature of Ria Formosa. The Ria Formosa is a Natural Park and lagoon system with lots of different... More

I contacted Algarve by Segway shortly before a trip to Quinta do Lago with friends asking more information about the products they offered. I was exceptionally impressed by the speed at which they responded and the attentive nature of our subsequent conversation - nothing was too much effort. The outing itself was really great - we were given a lovely... More
