Good explanations, nice competent guides, the technical condition of the quads (especially for a very first tour) was not great. A vehicle always went out, on the tour a mirror kept turning into the operating area. On the trip, the companions were very attentive and took very good care of us "beginners". The real problem was that, without a little practice, you had to drive straight into traffic on a very busy national road. That was a bad feeling. A second driver has to be paid extra!

The guides are magnificent, Paulo and Francisco are very attentive, there was also a dark-haired boy with a beard whose name I don't remember and he was very attentive the whole time. As a suggestion to the experience is that they take a photo of the whole group and send it by wassap, I think people would appreciate it. The experience itself is very good, in our case it was the first time taking a quad and the truth is that it was a good and recommended experience.

Overall the experience was amazing! Our guide Edgar was very helpful, both explaining how to use the quad and making sure everyone in the group was okay to proceed! He even offered to take off some of the dust after the tour! The course included a couple of stops with some interesting information about the area we were in and Algarve in general. It would have been helpful to learn in advance if there was a place to keep our things in the quad or not and that we would make a stop in a cafe to eat or drink something! Otherwise, amazing experience!
