    The round trip with the buggy was great and a good change from a day at the beach! We were a group of children, teenagers and adults and everyone had fun. It would be good to take something with you to cover your mouth and nose and to have a change of clothes with you. The guides are super friendly and helpful!

    Highly recommend this buggy riding company. Our leader Ricardo was very nice and clear with instructions. He even took pictures of us on the buggy and gave us a clear history of the Paderne Castle. All the guys were really nice and full of crack and we really had a great time. Driving in the mountains was really cool and we had a great view of the Algarve. Highly recommend. Great quality buggys and quads and the workers are so nice and sound. Clear instructions. Would highly recommend.

    A big thank you goes to Francisco and David the guides. Everything was very professional and friendly! The off-road track was cool, it wasn't very adventurous if you've driven other off-road tracks before. However, it was an experience to drive off-road with the buggies! The buggies drove perfectly and at the stop at the castle there was information and water. It's worth not choosing the cheap tour. Thank you for the experience! :)
