Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 207 reviews

For a quad bike tour it was a decent route (approx. 80km) with an interesting off-road component. It's a shame that you could hardly get over 40km / h at the speed. A slightly faster driving style would have significantly increased the fun factor. The included lunch in a typical Portuguese restaurant was rich and tasty. However, the break time for this was very long at around 2.5 hours from the 7-hour experience. Pick up from the hotel, organization, implementation was impeccable. Also the tour guide. Overall, a decent experience that you rarely get better.

A full day quad bike tour which unexpectedly had a 3 vourse lunch included. We opted for a quad each, which was well worth the extra money from our perspective. We were pretty much novices, a full wasy to understand briefing and we were away. Lots od different terrain, to mix it up and keep it interesting, with some fantastic scenery. The majority of the time on yravks rather than tarmac roads as well.

Roads, villages, mountains: driving is all-terrain, the adrenaline is present "but it's good" a guide Paulo and his very professional partner, good choice of routes and restaurants; the day goes by too quickly, I will come back for sure. For those who love adventure and thrills, this is the excursion not to be missed.

Perfect. Very good guide, very good walk. For me the best quality / price / time for 7h knowing that the meal and water are included
