Owner description: Do you want to do something really fun, exciting and truly memorable this holiday? Then come on a quad tour with Rory and Claire and get out into the wilderness of the beautiful countryside. We will take you off the beaten track giving you a taste of the real Algarve which will be an unforgettable suburb adventure! Enjoy the spectacular scenery when you ride your quad bike along forests tracks, through rugged trails and up and down woodland paths. The possibilities are endless! This is a fabulous activity for all ages. No previous experience required as all our quads are easy to drive as they are fully automatic. You can either drive your own or travel as a passenger. Both are equally fun and exciting and we will ensure you will have a memorable and unforgettable time. We are open all year and recommend you book in advance.

“Brilliant activity”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

If you visit albuferia you have to do this activity. Children under 12 are free so complete value and the couple organising it are professional, very friendly and lovely. The activity itself is fun and great for thrill seekers

“JUST FANTASTIC - YOU MUST BOOK THE QUAD BIKE TOUR”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is the second time we did the quad bike tour. A few years ago we did the 4 hour tour, this time we did the 2 hour tour which was just as good but more off road than the 4 hour tour. Rory and Claire are an English couple and are so organised and very friendly and welcoming. Claire picks you up from your hotel and then you are taken to the quads at their house where you are given saftey and training talk. Bit of advice don't wear white clothing as the dry dust from the road/tracks gets on clothes but easily washes out! I recommend you book this tour as sson as you can, it was highlight of our holiday....loved it and will book again next year! You will have a great time and take your camera for the amazing views! Thanks again Claire and Rory. Lizz and Lee

“Quad-Tastic!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I went on the 4 hour tour with my partner, together with my teenage son and daughter. It was an awesome afternoon. Claire and Rory took care of everything for us to make it a hassle-free and thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The scenery is amazing, you get a good flavour of the real Algarve and driving through the rugged countryside and rural villages adds to the experience. Driving the quad bikes was so much fun - I would thoroughly recommend the trip!

Thanks to Claire and Rory for a great afternoon...

Adrian, Donna, Zak and Madison thanks so much for the review! We really appreciate each one. Rory and I had a great afternoon getting to know you. It was lovely to get an email after the tour letting us know how you thoroughly enjoyed and happy to know the directions from Alvor were simple and it was easy for you to find us. The village of Alte is beautiful and driving the quads through the maze of cobbled streets with a stop at the font area where you can dip your feet or swim in the water (even though it can be very cold but many people have braved it in last few weeks!) is often the highlight of the holiday.

A massive thank you for also booking directly with me via email before you arrived. Great if you can do this.

We really hope to meet you on another occasion! Thanks again, Claire

“ONCE AGAIN BRILLIANT!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We did this activity on the quads this year again on holiday - and again it was brilliant. Claire was once again on time & it was lovely seeing her again - like as if she had known us for years. She makes the experience so personal! Remembering all of our names!! One fantastic quality of running a business!!

As we had did one of the 2 hour tours last year. We booked another 2hr tour again this year, just assuming it would be the same route, as we enjoyed the quads so much we wanted to do them again! Rory who also is brilliant at making you feel so welcome, took us on a completely different route than before. This was just fab seeing some different parts of Portugal, and even to a different restaurant, for a half way stop of drink!

The four of us really enjoyed this once again it was brilliant.

Thank you Claire & Rory!!

Louise

Rory and I are so happy you came back and joined us again Louise! It’s always lovely to see familiar faces and we have had more people than ever this year return and do another tour with us. We do try our best to remember where you went on the first occasion and if possible Rory will take you on a different route. The countryside right on the doorstep of Albufeira is so different than what you see in town. And the locals that you pass all love to give you a wave as you pass by.

Thanks so much for the review and booking directly where I offer a discount for those joining us on a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th visit. Just email me for more info.

I know you love Portugal. The people and culture makes for a great holiday and Rory and I look forward to seeing you, Barry, Charlie and Alice again. Not long till Charlie can drive his own quad!
Take care and thanks again, Claire

Thanks Alison for writing a review. Lovely to hear you had a fabulous day and would do it all again!
Rory always buys the drinks at the first café stop. We also provide everything in our prices so you don’t have to arrange a thing. Petrol, helmet, liability and accident insurance and free transport within Albufeira are all included. And of course Rory your English guide! All you need to bring on the day is your driving licence and we are ready to go (not needed for passengers). Please don’t worry if you have not driven a quad bike before as not many people we meet have experience. At the start of each tour we go through a full safety briefing and as the quads are all automatic they are easy to drive.

Let’s hope you come back out here and we get to see you all again. Cheers, Claire
