AlgarvebySegway essentially offers two types of services:
Segway is the most fun and eco-friendly way to travel in the city, country or even at the beach!
Because it is no wider than a person, Segway is perfect for travelling on sidewalks, bicycle paths or roads without disturbing other people.
Because Segway is an electric vehicle, it needs to be recharged. It uses two li-ion batteries for storing energy. One full charge takes about 8 hours and provides the vehicle with autonomy for up to 40 km. The power used in a single battery charge is a mere 1kw!
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... read more 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.
Last minute booking via internet, for a family tour of Portimao.
Everything was perfect, from the original Segway vehicles, the safety, the explanations and our very nice guide, André.
Thanks... read more a lot.
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... read more 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.
Excelent tour enjoyed by everyone including adults and kids, guide André did a wonderful job for us and made sure we all were happy and enjoying the activity. Very satisfying... read more experience.
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... read more 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.
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... read more 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.
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.... read more 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.
