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.
