We had been in Vilamoura 3 years ago and hadn't really ventured beyond the marina.....this time round we wanted to do something exciting and break the week up a bit. When we started looking at the various options, one kept coming up number one everytime.....Quinta Quads!

Quad Biking.......neither my wife or I had previously been on a quad, so there is always a bit of uncertainty about the unknown! However, the reviews had been that good that we decided to 'give it a blast'!

Email communication beforehand was excellent and it was good to know we had our half day booked before leaving the UK.

So the joke was when we arrived on Tuesday that it was only '3 more sleeps' to 'vroom vroom'!!!! 2 sleeps, 1 sleep.....no sleeps!!!!!!!!!!!

The day arrived and Richard picked us up from our hotel. He was very friendly and we had a good chat on the way up to his base which is around 20 minutes from Vilamoura. (By the way, Richard has a storage box on his quad for cameras, purses or any other small items you need to bring) Full body kit was provided and off we went.....a quick run round the practice track built our confidence and we were ready for the real 'biking' to begin. I could go on and on about how fantastic it was, but will keep it short!

You will see parts of the Algarve you never knew existed.....miles and miles of perfect tracks and wonderful countryside!

We stopped after an hour or so for a break...Richard providing the water, which was gratefully appreciated!

Then we were on our way again.........I won't spoil the surprise of where you go next.....but it is awesome!!!!!

All in all, this is a wonderful experience. We have subsequently tried to find somewhere at home that offers quad biking!

Absolutely worth every euro for the half day trip!!!

Top tip - dark clothes advisable (the older the better!!!!)

Thanks again Richard.

Had a great day out at Quinta Quads

Richard picked us from our apartment and returned us afterwards

Spent the whole morning there, thorough training given, and a great trek afterwards, up into the mountains, and down through the dried up river beds.

Excellent customer service throughout, can't recommend highly enough

If your debating about doing this, don't, you'll regret it!!!

Realy good day out. Realy friendly, Enjoyed by all family. Amazing amount of trails available. My partner had never ridden a quad before and Richard took time to show her how to ride and ensure she was confident. 11 yr old thoroughly enjoyed and has done nothing but talk about it and ask for a quad back home

Booked this activity while on holidays in the algarve. I got a text message the evening before canceling the booking with some lame excuse about their minibus having to go to the garage. surely they could have hired a minibus for the day, seems very unprofessional

We went with Quinta quads last week and it was excellent. The charming lady met us at the start, gave us a safety brief and started us riding around the car park. Our guide (portuguese quad bike champion) lead the way up into the mountains with some great views. On the return trip we stopped at a fresh water spring for a quick swim which was great. The whole afternoon was very enjoyable and I would highly recommend Quinta quads.
