Then, zip over to Ludo for the park’s best birdwatching. Gaze into your binoculars and scan lush ecosystems for vibrant rosy-pink flamingos and purple swamphen preening their plumage. Listen as your guide explains how the park’s system of barrier islands communicates with the sea and makes a perfect home to its feathered inhabitants. Continue birdwatching in the Algarve while searching for more unusual species and rare specimens until your 1.5 hours comes to a close. Then, drop off your Segway and return to your departure point.

Amazing Segway tour plus flamingos
Oct 2021 • Couples
Amazing Segway tour. The segways were easy to learn and handle, our my guide was super nice and had loads of local knowledge. The scenery was stunning and we saw flamingos 🦩. Would highly recommend we had a fabulous morning.

Always fun and exiting
Think you can say that we are ‘regulars’. We’ve done quite a few Segway tours with Nelson and we love it every time! It’s a really fun way to experience the Algarve.

Amazing fun afternoon!
We had a fantastic tour. It went by so quickly, we wanted to do another 1.5 hours! It was a super mix of local knowledge, nature watching, homes of the stars and, of course, great fun on the segways. Nelson was the perfect guide, taking memorable photos and providing us with loads of interesting facts. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

Aug 2021
My partner, our 15 year old son and I took an evening segway tour of the Ria Formosa and Quinta de Lago last night- what an amazing experience! Nelson was an experienced, fun and knowledgeable guide. He was very safety conscious, making sure that we were sufficiently competent before removing the speed limiters, pointing out any hazards that we should avoid, and giving us (well, me!) help when it was needed. He taught us about flamingoes, salt flats, Roman ruins, carob trees, and of course, which celebrity had stayed/ owned which house in Quinta de Lago :D All in all we travelled about 15km over 90 minutes, and compared to other segway experiences we've had in the UK, Nelson's tour had us fully engrossed and provided really good value for money.

I would highly recommend Nelson and Algarve by Segway; we can't wait to go on another tour with him next summer!

Best activity in the Algarve
Amazing- we loved our tour with Nelson today. We met Nelson at Quinta do Lago for a brilliant Segway tour. This totally exceeded our expectations. Our tour consisted of Roman ruins, nature reserve, salt beds and the lovely Quinta, plus great fun doing this on Segway. This was the highlight of our holiday. It’s also easy to use, Nelson gives you an intro to get you started and you feel very confident on the Segway quickly.

It was super interesting and fun. Nelson is such a nice and friendly guy. He even took my mobile and took loads of photos and videos of us- such a nice touch.

My 11 and 12 year olds really enjoyed it and want to do another tour with Nelson! We just wished we had booked this at the start of our holiday and not the end as could have done another one of his tours! We will definitely be back next year.

We highly recommend this- I can’t believe I’ve been coming here so many years and only just experienced this.

Worth every penny for a fabulous 1 hr 1/2 fabulous tour.

Nice afternoon in good company
Aug 2021
Very enthusiastic guide with extensive knowledge of the nature and the residential area on the tour. We enjoyed his company very much.
The tour it self is well planned and offers great experiences throughout the duration. Good balances between moving and information stops.
The Segway is a great way of traveling a good distance in a short time and it's very easy to operate.

Great tour
It was a family trip with two teenagers and it is a perfect family activity. We did it 10.30 am and it was perfect and not too hot. Great tour and great guide can absolutely recommend it.
