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.

“Excellent Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Before I came to Quad Ventura quad bikes really didn't appeal to me but now I seem to have an addiction and cant help but book myself in for a tour when ever I come to Portugal!
The people are so kind and friendly, this really puts you at ease if your a bit nervous like I was.
Everyone has got to do this at some point in their lives! Its Incredible!!

Hi Helen, like you, so many people can be nervous before we meet them but Rory puts everyone at ease and ensures you are all feeling confident before heading out. There is no better way of exploring the Algarve countryside than on a quad bike in the sun and so many get the bug just like you!
Thanks for the review. We really do appreciate everyone. Looking forward to the next time. Many thanks, Claire

My pet hate Sharon is being delayed and a little late as I try and arrive at your accommodation early, grrrr! But got there after being stuck behind horse and cart for what seemed like an eternity.

Big thumbs up for the review and booking 6 months in advance! Had a fantastic group that day and wonderful meeting you all. Great to hear we are value for money. Many thanks, Claire

“Absolutely amazing. Such a wonderful experience we done it again four days later!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

First of all we have to say what lovely and genuine people Rory & Claire are. After reading the excellent reviews on trip advisor we emailed Claire back in February to make sure we had our places booked for June as we didn't want to miss out. We are a family of five ages ranging from 17-44 yrs we hired 3 quad bikes between us (3 driving, 2 passengers) and none of us had ever been on a quad bike before. Claire picked us up precisely on time as arranged and explained about our tour on the way to their base. We then met Rory who explained exactly how to operate the quad bikes along with all the safety points. We all found the bikes were easy to operate with Rory's guidance. We did the 4 hour tour and would recommend this to anyone. The sights and different terrains you cover are amazing. As we enjoyed it so much we were lucky enough that Rory and Claire had a space to let us do another 4 hour tour again four days later. This was just as enjoyable if not more than the first time. If you only do one thing while you are in the Albufeira area do this. You won't regret it. We want to say thanks to Rory and Claire also for their tips on supermarkets and restaurants etc. A great couple. Oh and also book directly with them via their website www.quad-ventura.com as we did rather than through your hotel it's much easier.

Wow, Jan, Dan, Craig, Sam and Laura what an amazing adventure we all had! It was just great to spend so much time getting to know you all. Each tour was so entertaining, so fun and full of many laughs along the way. So pleased you booked a 4 hour trek and then to re book again 4 days later we could not have been happier. Rory mixed the route up for you so you got to explore different terrain than on your first tour which meant Craig getting stuck on the river crossing!

Congratulations on the engagement. Love to all. Fab days! Cheers, Claire

“Something you must do!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

Thank you for the 3rd year running for a great time and experience Rory and Claire, you could not meet a nicer couple. Claire always picks us up on time and will drop you back wherever you want to be, nothings to much trouble. A four hour experience well worth doing and good value your for money. The weather was not good to us this time but Rory gave me a jacket to wear with the QuadVentura logo on it which I posed for in photos Rory will tell you it made my holiday he wouldn't let me keep it tho ;( Claire did say she was going to hide it from him and pretend I took it. Hope to be back in Albufeira one day and the first thing we will do is book AGAIN!!

Dave & Jacqui, once again it was great to see you both. Always feels like meeting family and after being out with us so many times before it is still something you choose to do each holiday.

Let’s hope you get Albufeira to celebrate your 50th rather than Rome……and fingers crossed Dave books it! Thanks for the review. Many thanks, Claire

“Simply excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

We saw a review for the hotel that mentioned the Quad Ventura tour so we decided to give it a go, an I have to say this was the high point of our holiday. We booked the 4 hour tour through our hotel, and was picked up on time by Claire who it turned out originated from our home town, Bracknell. Rory showed us around the quad bike before we embarked on a ride taking in some wonderful countryside that normally you just would not get to see. We were amazed at the amount of ground that we covered in the 4 hours and would highly recommend this tour. We would love to return to Albufeira one day and do the tour again!.

Great to get a recommendation through a hotel review and that you and Lynette booked a tour with us! Thank you. On our 4 hour tour you travel over 50 miles and cover so much terrain that is only accessible to a quad bike. You will discover small unspoilt Portuguese houses and get a glimpse of how life used to be. Be sure to wave at the locals!

We would love to see you both again, thanks so much for the review. Cheers Claire
