First of all: Segway is possible for the younger and the older ones, means a family-event which everybody enjoys highly. When we met our guide, unfortunately I forgot his name and don`t want to spell him wrongly, gave us a very good introduction into the use of the segways and only after all of us felt comfortable with it, the...

What a great morning we had! I can't think of an easier and more fun way to see the Ria Formosa with its salt flats and amazing wildlife. There were 6 of us, ages ranging from 13 to 61 (with various back backs, bad knees and hips!). Nelson was brilliant, he gave us some instruction at the start and was... More

Just back from a segway tour... Great fun and all 7 of us (ages 16 to 50) thought it was superb. Great value at 35 euro for 1 1/2 hours . A few minutes instruction and practice was enough for even the most unsure of the party to get to grips with it. Our instructor/guide, Nelson ( total legend) took... More

While on holiday in the Algarve we came across Nelson and Algarve by Segway. I cannot express how much fun our family had and how wonderful Nelson is as a guide. Nelson gave us a go on the Segway's for free. Needless to say we were hooked so we booked a trip for the following day. We arrived at the... More

We has such a good time - the experience was amazing, the scenery beautiful, and Nelson was a mine of information about the are, nature, the people etc. Would wholeheartedly recommend, looking forward to doing the Monchique one next year!

We ranged in age from 29 to 60 and various levels of fitness yet everyone of us loved the experience. Nelson was an amusing and informative guide and gave us all lots of confidence. I cannot recommend this highly enough if you are visiting the Algarve and we will definitely do it again when we next visit . Don't worry... More

Had a fantastic time with Nelson on the birdwatching tour. I'd never been on a Segway before, nor have I been on skis for years, but it reminded me of that (although I'm sure you can be much more sedate if that's your thing!) Birds, salt, local history - all delivered with Nelson's helpful, knowledgeable, fun style. Put yourself in... More

it took them a while until my friends finally persuaded me to get on a segway. Nelson taught me patiently how to use the segway, he is a very good teacher. The next day I made a tour of 1,5 hours and it was the highlight of my vacation! The birdwatching tour (where you might even see some star celebrities... More

A great tour by Nelson and the team.11 mad men from from London did the Villamoura tour, super fun and excitement. Cannot convey what a wierd experience the Segway is by using weight to drive the unit. It takes about 10-15 minutes of careful driving you soon get used to the Segway. The only thing I would caution is that... More
