What to expect
Meet your guide near the Faro airport at a predetermined time or at your Algarve hotel for a pickup (if upgrade selected). Then begin your birdwatching tour by Segway at Ria Formosa Natural Park. First, listen to a safety briefing that explains how to operate your electric self-balancing Segway. Then, strap on your helmet and cruise to Ria Formosa Natural Park, while savoring scenic coastal views along the way. See the Park’s marshes, freshwater lagoons, and tidal flats that comprise this important tranquil habitat. Learn about the hundreds of species that live here during spring and autumn migration periods. Traverse nature and wildlife surroundings along smooth trails and paths. Then, zip over to Ludo for the park’s best birdwatching. Gaze into your binoculars and scan lush ecosystems for vibrant rosy-pink flamingos and purple swamphen preening their plumage. Listen as your guide explains how the park’s system of barrier islands communicates with the sea and makes a perfect home to its feathered inhabitants. Continue birdwatching in the Algarve while searching for more unusual species and rare specimens until your 1.5 hours comes to a close. Then, drop off your Segway and return to your departure point.

Highly recommended - a lovely way to see a different side of Faro
Sep 2020
A lovely, fun and unique experience. Andres was very conscientious and took time to show us how to use the segways and we felt safe and confident. He was careful to point out how to navigate more tricky points on the tour - not that there was anything too challenging. The park is beautiful and the tour also took us through some of the most elite parts of Faro which you don't get to see otherwise. Andres was knowledgeable and had lots of informative stories and a great sense of humour. I would not say that this was a bird-watching tour but we certainly saw lots of different species; I imagine it would be amazing during the migrations. Andres was very respectful of the reserve and of other users. Everything about our interaction with Algarve Segways felt comfortable and authentic (no touristic manufactured/pressurised "fun") and Nelson and Andres were very helpful and great communications when we were making the booking and finalising times/dates etc.

Ria Formosa Fun!
We have used Algarve Segway three times now and twice this year and thoroughly recommend using them. Andres was so helpful and informative all through the tour and our friends both time’s really enjoyed it. The apprehensive ones in the group were looked after perfectly and reassured that they were safe. Great way to see the flamingoes and the wildlife while getting some sun and laughs thrown in.

excellent activity
Jul 2020 • Family
My husband and I and our 2 teenage children did the Monchique tour with Algarve by Segway 2 years ago, so we already knew that Nelson and André are both extremely friendly, yet professional guys. As my son's girlfriend was visiting, we decided to treat her to a segway tour. We chose to do the Monchique tour again, but unfortunately, soon after setting off, there was a problem with one of the segways. André swapped his segway with the problem one which was very slow and consequently was not able to keep up with the rest of us. Although my family and I still enjoyed the tour, for the inconvenience, Nelson offered us a complimentary tour of the Rio Formosa, which we considered to be a very generous gesture. We have now done 3 tours with Algarve by Segway, always with André as our guide, and we all throughly enjoyed the tours and André's company. We would not hesitate to recommend Algarve by Segway to anybody.

Accident on Segway
Jul 2019 • Family
Last July my family & I were staying in Quinta do Lago & booked a tour. Our guide Nelson was lovely. 2 adults & 2 children ages 11 & 14. Although we were all keeping a good distance from each other on the Segways, about half way through the tour my youngest daughter stopped her Segway suddenly and we crashed. Both of us were quite badly hurt. My Segway actually ended up off the road on top of me, they are very heavy! No broken bones but both of us had several really bad cuts & bruises, quite a bit of blood. Nelson used some wipes & sterile lotion to clean some of the cuts but in general played down the whole accident. We were both very sore & bruised for days afterwards. At the time I was embarrassed about the fall & my review just said how lovely our guide & tour was (which it was at the start) In hindsight I feel it important to let people know how easy it is to come off one of these things and if you do it is not nice. My family will not be getting on a Segway ever again.

February in the Algarve
Very enjoyable day touring the Ria Formosa by segway. As first timers out, our guide (Andre) introduced us to the basics of segwaying and made sure we were fully comfortable before we started. His local trivia and guided stops along the way were very informative and educational. We highly recommended taking a segway your through some very beautiful wetlands.
