“Bird watching on a Segway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Three women and Nelson, our guide, had a wonderful time, even in the rain. It was a great way to spend a few hours and we saw the beautiful bird sanctuary. Nelson gave us a good lesson on the Segways and we were off. I would highly recommend this tour for anybody.

“Nelson's Segway Vilamoura”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Had great fun Segwaying from Vilamoura to Quateira beach and back. Terrific fun and Nelson is a great host a very able photographer. His videos shot from his own moving Segway from my phone are awesome. Enjoyed Segwaying on the beach and only fell off once.

“Brilliant & Fun Not To Be Missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We are fortunate enough to have segwayed in many places around the world, including 3 with Algarve Segways but 1st time this Saturday we want on the beach which was so much fun.
We would definitely recommend the bird watching tour and look forward to joining Nelson on the Monchique tour soon. Nelson is so passionate about his business and his aim is to make sure you all have a great time, we laughed so much. It was our friends first time and they are smitten.
Would highly recommend if your visiting the Algarve.
See you soon Nelson Sandra & Mike Wilson

“A fantastic family experience !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

What a wonderful, relaxed, fun, and very personalised way to really see the sights - without the confines of bus windows and squillions of other people. Nelson is an excellent people person - he is communicative, patient and charming - making all three of us feel very at ease. Initially, we decided on the Segway tour primarily as a way of engaging our fifteen year old son - wow !! - in this case, the fifteen year old's parents are as smitten with the Segway tour as the teenager !
The contrast Nelson offered in his personalised tour was excellent too - we sauntered through unspoilt nature reserve, observing unusual wildlife and birds, and then we toured through an opulent residential area - where no-one was at home !
We are very fortunate to be frequent travellers and we have participated in many different types of tours in many countries around our wonderful world but our family of three all agree that Nelson and his Segway tour is an absolute standout.
It is an absolute must-do.
Thank you Nelson from three appreciative Australians from Melbourne.
