The staff here are...
Evan_R, Jul 2022
The staff here are unfriendly and rude. We originally had thought that it would be a a fun off road experience but we were disappointed to find out that we had to follow the instructor at a very low speed . My boyfriend was driving and slightly tipped the buggy of a wall and was charged €20 even though there was no damage. The instructor said “you crash you don’t get your deposit”. Even though a couple behind us had crashed into our buggy twice and we’re not fined. Terrible experience, wouldn’t recommend.
Stat away
Tina_D, Jul 2022
What a waste of time. First waiting outside on a Road in nowhere, then let into a scrapyard and then it started. A Big guy started to tell What a bad guy he was for 15 min and then he talked about how borring the trip was going to be and endes with 10 minuttes of the importance of the brakes and accelerator. Then onto the “offroad” trip. Everytime on asphalt and gravel roads, nothing my rental Citroën c3 tiny car could have made. At a time we went through a roundabout in heavy traffic in lousy old cars with worn tyres and hardly Worning brakes. We had one stop at an old castle and saw another offroad trip in shiny Mew cars and a real tourism company with a guide telling about the castle and Handed out water. Our supposed guide said 5 minuttes and Walked away. The short version, stat away
One to be missed
Adedamola_A, Jul 2022
The 30 minutes it took to get the old buggies going . The smell of burning clutch in front of our buggie. The condescending way the guy gave his safely briefing. The countryside between the cement works and railway particularly attractive!! Random dogs when we arrived

Fun Times Need a little polishing of facilities and equipment for better experience
kelli_r, Jul 2022
Fun time Couple suggestions to make things run smoother . Include Goggles for rental experience . Have a clean maintained restroom . Drty no soap running water paper towels or Tp. Biggie were not maintained well one of three friends engine cut out 5 times during the 1.5 hour trip due to a clogged fuel filter . If you are expecting to have a little freedom to cut loose this is not the experience for you. basically you follow a line of buggies in this case 20 no ocean views even though the pictures showed that. All in all had fun and the guys were nice . Bit definitely they need to keep equipment maintained and faculties maintained . Also provide an exact address in confirmations they are located in the out skirts of town. Thanks cheers kelli
Buggy day
FRANSISCO_F, Jun 2022
It was a great drive though some good terrain. If you are expecting an high speed rally, it is not that. Never the less was very enjoyable and a good experience.

We have wait for the tour start lately total one more hours, after that the owner told us because of accident during last tour. The reception area is poor. The buggies they provided was not safe, all are wear and tear and not in good condition, like one of the rear is bared tyre. However, the tour team is good. Please consider yourself safety before you booking this activity.

Don’t book here very unfriendly staff and bad tour!
Elisabeth_M, Jan 2022
It is the worst experience I ever booked. Directly from the beginning the tour guide was very unfriendly and we had the felling he don’t like his job. In the safety instruction the Said it’s slow spewing Track. With slow the mean 5km/h. It’s really boring. From the beginning till the end it was a bad experience and I would highly recommend to not book the tour here!
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thank you for leaving the honest review! Yes, from the beginning there were issues, since you booked to come here and race. This is NOT a racetrack! You are exaggerating on how slow it is, but yes, this is a slow-paced sightseeing tour. Our staff like the job, what we don't like are customers like you, that come here to race and break our vehicles. For future customers that read this review, please follow this customer's advice, if you come here to race, please do not book! This is a tour for families, friends and couples, that want to explore the countryside of Albufeira, in a safe and fun trip! :)

Great tour poor equipment
richardmcaspurn, Nov 2021
The tour and guides excellent- the standard of the equipment however not. We were constantly stopping due to equipment failure- it’s such a shame as the route and staff were awesome. Whoever invests in the business should update the vehicles

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour!
Not enjoyable
Christina_Z, Oct 2021
The tour guide was telling guests its not what the ads say. Not what we expected. No nice views. Slow riding.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you for sharing your opinion. I was the guide during your trip and I absolutely did not say such thing. I'm sorry if you didn't enjoy the tour, that is matter of your opinion as we did everything as advertised.
Entertaining adventure
Omar_S, Jul 2021
Took the short 1,5 tour. it was exciting buggy trip, also fun for kids to do with their parents. (parents driving of course :-)) on road and off-road. Big tip, bring your sunglasses because there will be dust! Overall very amusing and entertaining, and they recorded and photographed it all... so lots of nice memories

Thanks for the review!
Zéro sensation
alessia_G, Jul 2022
En arrivant, Monsieur Francisco nous a accueillis de façon extrêmement mal polie et désagréable cela s’est fait ressentir par le groupe tout entier. Ce genre de comportement non-professionnel gâche l’envie de faire l’activité. Ensuite, par rapport à l’activité en elle-même, elle était très intéressante sur papier mais vraiment décevante sur le terrain : on se suivait à la queue leu leu à vitesse très faible ce qui nous donnait aucun plaisir et aucune sensation c’était ennuyant. Les paysages n’étaient pas du tout intéressants car nous sommes restés dans la campagne portugaise. Le château ne vaut pas le détour. Au retour nous n’avons même pas fait le chemin inverse, nous avons pris la route. Activité avec un grand potentiel mais telle qu’elle est réalisé elle n’en vaut pas la peine. On ne recommande pas du tout.
Excellente
luciana_s, May 2022

Vraiment chouette et dépaysant.
Vincent_D, Sep 2021
Les buggies sont des antiquités, mais ça participe à l’ambiance. Très chouette tour, assez simple. Beaux paysages… même si vous allez tellement « mordre la poussière ». Personnel sympa.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Merci!
Ein tolles Erlebnis!
Damian_K, Aug 2021
Mein Freund und ich, wir haben eine Buggy Tour gebucht. Vor Ort erfuhren wir, dass wir nur zu zweit seien. Es fühlte sich an als würde uns ein guter Freund die Gegend zeigen. Wir fühlten uns sehr sicher und wohl. Die Strecke war super abwechslungsreich. Zum Ende hin hatten wir die Chance auf einem unbefestigten und sehr unebenen Gelände die Buggys frei zu fahren während der Guide einige Fotos und Videos von uns machte. Es war der Wahnsinn! Der Guide war noch dazu nett und sehr entspannt. Er zeigte uns wirklich viele schöne Ecken von Albufeira. Zudem machte er viele Aufnahmen von uns, sodass wir nun auch noch eine coole Erinnerung von der actionsreichen Tour haben. Vielen Dank für dieses tolle Erlebnis!

Fed eftermiddag
Daniel_J, Jul 2021
Fed eftermiddag brugt på Off-road buggy adventure. Selvom turen var sagt til at være 90 min, så varede den 2 timer hvilket slet ikke er en dårlig ting. Du bliver bare placeret i buggyen og fortalt hvordan den starter, og derfra begynder turen. Hold fast i rattet for den er dog uden servostyring og terrænet går fra vej til en vild off-road. Der er et stop på vejen med en længere pause ved Castello de paderne og så det ellers videre. God service og glade guides kan findes her. Og de tilbyder endda afhentning til og fra uden det koster ekstra. HUSK et par briller og Overvej at køre med mundbind for vejen støver. Alt i alt var det en fed oplevelse og nok det vi morede os mest med på vores ferie.

Recomendadíssimo
Alberto_M, Jul 2021
A experiência vale mesmo a pena, para quem nunca experimentou os buggys e gosta da aventura da condução. O guia foi extremamente simpático e cuidadoso com o nosso bem-estar. Recomendadissimo! Levar máscara ou lenço para o pó é recomendável também.

A experiência foi fantástica e dentro das nossas expectativas. Apenas uma questão que não gostamos: tivemos de assinar um papel com diferentes condições das que nos tinham anunciado para a caução a deixar durante o passeio.
