As easy as riding a bike, maneuver around on the self-balancing vehicle until you’re comfortable. Then, breathe in the fresh ocean air and relish spectacular beach views as you zip along the coastline. Enjoy views of  of Falésia and Quarteira beaches as you glide off towards an endless expanse of golden shores. Stop for a few breaks and learn interesting information about the surroounding area from your guide. Next, coast to the lively Vilamoura Marina one of the biggest marina’s in Portugal. Behold luxurious yachts and hundreds of other vessels docked here. Follow you guide through the town and witness a bustling farmer’s marketplace filled with colorful fruits and vegetables. As your Algarve seaside Segway tour comes to a close, peruse the local fish market and admire the variety of fresh fish. Maybe purchase a filet or two of local specialties that catch your eye for dinner that evening. After 1.5 hours, head back to the departure point in Vilamoura, drop off your Segway, and exchange goodbyes with your guide.

You should really try this!
May 2021
Did this tour with my 12 year old son and we had so much fun.
Andre, our guide was the friendliest guy ever.
He not only showed us how to ride the Segway but also told us nice stories about the places we passed by.
At the end he even bought us some of the Pastel de Nata pies we wanted to try.
The two of us absolutely loved this tour.

Good experience and fun
Jun 2020
We had a private appr. 90 min. tour vilamoura. We had / our Navi had a problem to find the right way from Gorjoes to McDonalds. We were about 15 min late but the guide was still waiting. Thank you very much. We had a nice guide and saw a lot of things. He explained different things. We had a lot of fun. It was not the first time. We had already experience from USA. Overall it was very good. The only thing what could be better is that the guide would stopp for/ by crossing streets and let the visitors first over the street. After he can have the lead again. The segway equipment should be more checked. The wheel of my segway was a bit shakey. It was a nice tour with a lot of good impression.

Nice Guide - Average Tour
The guide was a nice guy and it was fun to ride the Segways. However, in an area where there is not a great deal to see that is interesting, tour companies really need to make an effort to construct a tour that wows people. It was just a bit boring and nothing was added to make it particularly interesting. Other companies make more of an effort to bring things to life. For example, telling us about what it’s like here in summer or about places that are far away from here or about fairly weak celebrity connections is not particularly interesting or relevant

Construct a tour that stops off in various places and informs, excites etc. It’s not too difficult. For example, stop at the Quarteira lighthouse, get us sitting on the rocks, haha our some local produce and tell an interesting story. In the fishing buAt Marina, arrange to meet a fisherman and get him to show us into his boat and involve us in something. Basically, this is how other tour companies do it. Yesterday we went on a jeep tour with Algarve Moments and they brought everything to life - nature, food, industry, history etc

As I nice, the guide was nice and caring but that’s not enough sadly

Fun to look around
Nov 2019 • Friends
We did this tour to have a bit of fun on the Segway and see the area. We were staying in Quarteira.
We met in the Vilamoura McDonalds car park. We’ve both done Segway before so we got the hang of it really quickly.
We went around Vilamoura marina, and across the beach path to Quarteira.
It was nice to look around but there wasn’t really much explained about the area. Apart from Vilamoura was a rich part, whilst Quarteira was more of a working fisherman’s harbour; and fish is Portugal’s dish really.
We would have like to explored inland more. We did mainly the beach front.

Fun way to see the area
Oct 2019
Always wanted to try a segway and this was a good opportunity to try one and also have a look around the local area. Nelson was prompt, very friendly and also very clear in the basic instructions before we started the tour. The tour was interesting and fun and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wonderful way to see the area!
Aug 2019 • Family
Went on this tour with my 12 year old son.. absolutely fantastic time!

Easy to find the meeting point (if you can find the McDonald's in Vilamoura, you're there lol)

Nelson, our guide, was relaxed, helpful,informative and had us up and on our Segway's in minutes. Down to Vilamoura Marina, along the beach towards Quarteira, through Quarteira old town and back through Vilamoura Marina.

I would recommend this tour to everyone, not just for the opportunity to ride a Segway, but to get a guided tour of the area from a knowledgeable and entertaining guide.

Thank you Nelson!
