If you're planning on going to the Algarve, please make sure this is on your list of things to do - Algarve By Segway. This was by far one of the most memorable activities me and my family did during our trip. I got in touch with Algarve by Segway via email before I went. Nelson provided quick responses, excellent...

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

We found out about the segway tour through friends and decided to book it right away for the last night of our holiday. So glad we did! The four of us had a great time, from the views to the laugh we had at each other! Very professional service from Nelson and Andreas too! Will be booking this again on... More

We took the bird watching tour with Andre in August 2014. It was an amazing experience :) segways are wonderful machines that allow you to travel far with minimum effort and you don't need any kind of experience managing it! Ria Formosa is absolutely gorgeous... the views are magnificent. One of the most beautiful places in Portugal. Andre was an... More

I was a little apprehensive to start as the segways always look funny. But what a great trip we had. It was a great way to see parts of Vilamoura which you wouldn't normally see and we covered quite a distance. Great fun!

A group of 12 of us, ages ranging from 12 to 58, did the tour around the Ria Formosa, starting at the lake at Quinta do Lago. The tour is about 90 mins, and the time flew by. There is a brief practice session in the car park before you set off, and the first 5 mins of the tour... More

SIx of us went on the vilamoura/quateria segway experience for my daughters 15th birthday. Our ages ranged from age 11 to 81. Our guide Andre was fantastic, very patient as we learnt how to ride, taking photos of us as we rode as well as giving us some local history. The route he took us on ranged from cycle paths,... More
