“Best tour I've ever taken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

I booked a day tour with Daniel on a whim with less than 24 hours notice - we weren't too sure what we were getting ourselves into. The ride ended up being the highlight of our trip and I can't imagine seeing Lisbon in any other way.

Daniel is a fantastic guide - he paints a fascinating picture of his city/country's history and has an awesome sense of humor. The trip honestly felt more like having an old friend drive us around all day, not like an organized tour. I learned all about the history of the city and got a local's perspective on what life is like there.

I really appreciated that Daniel's biggest goal was making sure we saw all of the sights - he never once rushed us to move on or hesitated to answer questions due to schedule. We hit a little bit of traffic during Friday rush hour and instead of just ending the trip on time, he made sure we still saw everything. We even stopped for coffee and a chat - he's the best.

The motorcycle was a total blast - have no fear, Daniel is a very safe driver and we never once felt worried or anything - given the layouts of the streets, you barely go over 40mph. One of my favorite parts was the reactions people give you on the streets - little kids will waive or run after you, people smile and point - it's really fun.

I can't recommend Daniel enough - it was truly the highlight of our trip to Lisbon. A trip there isn't complete without a ride with Daniel.

“the sidecar, the sights, the tour guide - GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

While planning a visit to Lisbon, Daniels sidecar tour seemed like the perfect idea for my motorcycle fan husband (even bigger fan of bikes with sidecars). We weren't disappointed - Daniel picked us up at our hotel, scooted us to many sights we'd hoped to see in Lisbon, gave us lots of information about the sites, Portugal, and of course - the bike! then dropped us off near a great restaurant for lunch. We were lucky to have a sunny morning and couldn't have asked for a more interesting and informative 3 hours with such an upbeat, interesting guide. Thanks Daniel for one of the highlights of our first visit to Portugal. Eileen & Tom

“a ride through history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This sidecar tour is definitely one of the best ways to discover the city. I travel a lot, but it was the first time i did a sidecar tour, but sertainly not the last one. Daniel gives a good vision on the history and structure of the city and knows little details and facts other guides would pay no attention to. Every tour is different and he changes it towards his customers. For example i'm a nurse so he showed us some of the institutes and hospitals around the city!
I also never had the feeling he was rushing us through the city within 3 hours. He takes his time to explain everything and answer the questions. A 3hour tour easily changes into a 4hour tour without problems.
It was a fantastic experience which i recommand to everyone!
Bike My Side: keep up the good work!
