We took the Segway through the nature area with Drew who was a very good guide. The pace was just right and the park was a delight. Highly recommended.

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

We toured Ria Formosa nature reserve with Nelson. It was a good mix of viewing birds, salt pans and luxury villas. Nelson is very informative, enthusiastic, chatty and with a great sense of humour. Riding a Segway was much easier than it looked and all 4 of us took to it very quickly. We all loved every minute of it... More

We had a wonderful segway experience with Andreas - great way to see the area which you would not cover on foot. We were soon used to the segways with Andreas' support and he pointed out many things of interest....the crabs in the sand were great, and the flamingos lovely. You will have a fabulous time on this tour.

My partner and I Elly went on this tour tour on the 25/8/14 lead by Nelson from algarvebysegway. We thoroughly recommend it. From the very start Nelson took his time to put all four of our tour party at ease, taking time to kit us out with a helmet and show us individually how to control the segways until we... More
