What people are saying about Faro

Had a lovely long Segway trip with the wonderful Andre. He was helpful and informative. He told us about the area, about the salt beds, the Carib trees, the Quinta da Lago complex…. The scenery is breathtaking and the paths and board walk are a great area to use the Segway on. A very positive and enjoyable experience which we would highly recommend.

In a word: great, very friendly guide, you understood him very well, very helpful, with the Segway it only went for an hour, but it was super nice. The food was awesome, a bit of everything, but no drinks, but still great

Nelson was very cool, helpful and funny. The tour through the national park, as well as through the! Villa district, just super nice and informative. My kids (19,17,15) had a lot of fun with the Segways.
