My wife and I both thought this was a really enjoyable experience. Our tour started at 1000hrs and as we were relative novices with regards to the Segways our guide talked us through the various procedures and before we knew it we were off and running. Our guide certainly knew his stuff and we stopped at various places where he would discuss the relevance of its importance to Faro For anyone having doubts in their ability to operate a Segway just go for it It's really easy to operate and once you realise how simple it is to operate it becomes a very enjoyable experience and your only regret will then be asking why you didn't try it earlier

Very good and fun experience, we have never used a SegWay before, the guide was very kind and patient his name is Andre, he gave us a quick lesson on how to operate the SegWay. We had our tour at 8AM so there was nobody else apart from my partner so it was more like a private tour. The guide showed us around the city and explained the history behind the famous buildings and sites. The guide Andre spoke really good in english. Overall the experience was really pleasant and fun would definitely do it again. I recommend it to anyone even the elderly to try it as it is very intuitive and easy to learn the SegWay.

After booking, there was very quick and clear communication regarding the meeting point and time. The tour started on time with a very friendly and competent guide! He explained all important things to us and answered all questions. During the tour he took care of all participants, helped the more cautious ones and showed us tips and tricks for riding the Segway. We stopped at all the important sights and hotspots and he told the important things about them. We also drove on different surfaces and at different speeds. All in all, an extremely good tour that can be recommended without reservation! 5 Stars
