Full description

Experience the adrenaline rush of driving a quad off-road in the countryside of the Algarve. After an all-important safety briefing at the base, you and your guide will head out into the countryside. Cover a variety of terrains with panoramic views, steep inclines where your skills will be proven, and cross streams and riverbeds (depending on the time of year).   As a special addition, you’ll also take a short drive through two typical towns of the interior of Algarve: Paderne and Alte. Enjoy lunch in a typical Portuguese restaurant and see the historic Paderne Castle, an ancient fortification constructed in the 12th century by Berbers, or visit the famous Alte Natural Springs. Get a marvelous view of your surroundings from the Old Windmills at Rocha da Pena. You will return to your starting point in the afternoon.

Very great experience. I have been called 1 day before and Tour Operator suggested to swap quad to buggy as they were getting customers feedback that riding quad for 6 hours is not really comfy for 2 people on it. We agreed to swap and this was really good decision as otherwise riding one quad with two people on it will be overkilling.

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.

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.
