Owner description: Do you want to do something really fun, exciting and spice up your holiday? Then come on a quad tour with Rory and Claire and get out into the wilderness of the beautiful countryside. We will take you off the beaten track giving you a taste of the real Algarve which will be an unforgettable suburb adventure! Enjoy the spectacular scenery when you ride your quad bike along forests tracks, through rugged trails and up and down woodland paths. The possibilities are endless! This is a fabulous activity for all ages. No previous experience required as all our quads are easy to drive as they are fully automatic. You can either drive your own or travel as a passenger. Both are equally fun and exciting and we will ensure you will have a memorable and unforgettable time. We are open all year and recommend you book in advance.

Can’t recommend QuadVentura highly enough! The 2 hour quad trek was the highlight of our holiday......and we can’t wait to visit the next time to do the 4 hour trek. It is an activity which suits all ages, groups are kept small which to me is much safer and more personal as Rory stops to take photographs of your family etc. for you and point out places of interest along the way as well as a break where you are treated to a cold/hot drink. Claire picked us up at our apartment and left us back again and also gave us some good tips on places to eat, etc. Claire and Rory are a lovely, friendly couple and make a great team.....we will be back to visit when in the Algarve again

My son and I took the 2-hr quad ride on his 11th birthday. (I drove the quad, and he rode on the back). Claire picked up us promptly from our house rental in Albufeira. She was right on time and welcomed us with a smile and a great personality. Rory, our guide, took us on the quad tour. He was easy going and great at leading the pack. The pace was perfect and the route was varied and fun; there were different elevations and terrains. We took a few stops along the way -- this gave us an opportunity to take photos and capture the unique landscape of the Algarve. Rory also treated the group to refreshments at a local coffee shop. It was great to have a short break in the middle of the tour. From beginning to end, we had an amazing time seeing this part of the Algarve and meeting Claire and Rory. And to top it off, my son was given a birthday treat at the end of tour -- that thoughtful gesture really made our day. This is a must do if you'll be in the Algarve!

Brilliant way to celebrate a birthday and any children 12 years and younger are free! So lovely meeting you both and we try and make birthdays as special as possible. Last week we ran a tour for a 70th birthday so you are never too old to join us! Hope we see you again. Many thanks, Claire

My husband and I booked the 2-hour quad tour based on the excellent reviews in TripAdvisor. Claire, a very energetic young lady, picked us up right on the scheduled time, took us to their location, reviewed the safety rules, and then introduced us to her partner. Rory, a very laid back guy, reviewed the safety rules with us again and then explained how to operate the quad. My husband had driven a quad before so he was very comfortable with it. However, it was my first time on one (if you don't count a 20 minute test run once before) and I LOVED it. Rory was excellent at demonstrating how to operate the quad. He made me feel confident that I could drive one. Our tour was a lot of fun, stopping a few times to take in the orange, lemon, avocado and almond trees. We also took a brief rest for a coffee at a local restaurant, which we both loved. Rory was kind enough to suggest a few other things for us to do while in the Algarve, all of which we are doing and LOVING it. Both my husband and I highly recommend this tour. You’ll love Claire and Rory - they’re super nice people.

Having never been quad biking before we were not sure what to expect - but we absolutely loved it! Both Rory & Claire were so easy to get along with and made us feel welcome right from the start. Claire responded to our email very quickly and got us on a tour the next day, she even picked us up & dropped us back to our hotel so we didn't have to worry about getting to the location. Rory was a super guide & taught us all we needed to know about the quads before we set off, he also knew all the best places to stop for the best photos opportunities. It was really nice that the tour groups were small which made it feel more personal. It was also a really nice touch, having a quick coffee stop on route as we all got to talk and discuss the experience. We have already said that if we ever come back to Albufeira we would love to do this again as it was such a highlight of our holiday.

Thanks Alex! Nearly all of our guests are beginners, so we know how to provide an experience that is as safe as it is fun. Our quads are fully automatic and very simple to drive; you simply squeeze the handle and off you go! Really pleased it was a holiday highlight. Many thanks, Claire
