As Joao was born and still lives in Porto, his knowledge and enthusiasm for the city is fantastic :) My husband and I have owned our own sidecar but felt completely safe and comfortable being driven by Joao. Make sure you take an extra layer of clothing, just in case, as the weather begins to get cooler by late afternoon. We would definitely recommend.

The Sidecar Tour in Porto was not only the highlight of our trip, it was the best tour I have ever taken. João, the tour guide was simply amazing. His passion for Porto, knowledge of history and culture, fun trivia facts, jokes, and his love of life in general made this experience the best. You will not get this level if attention and kindness on any other tour. We smiled and laughed the whole time. We did the full day tour and saw some pretty special areas and people of Porto and Gaia. Highly recommend for any age!

I just finished up a wonderful all day tour with João and had a great time. The opportunity to see so many parts of the beautiful city from the viewpoint of the sidecar was truly unique. João was courteous, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the local history and sites. We were able to take a leisurely pace and stop at any time which made it very convenient and relaxing. He also tailored the experience to focus on my particular interests. I highly recommend this activity when you are visiting Porto!

This may be my first online review but Joao deserves this an more. The time we spent with him visiting the city was awesome!!! I do love walking tours but knowing Porto in this way is really worthy because of fun, attention and Joao's knowledge. If you are planning to visit the city no matter the time you will stay I do recommend you any of the tours. If you plan to make someone a surprise, count on Joao for a special day. Many many thanks for your work Joao!

This review is long overdue. We toured with Joao back in June this year and it was the highlight of our trip. Not only is the bike and sidecar a fun and comfortable way to get around (Porto has a lot of cobbled streets), but Joao's encyclopaedic knowledge of the city and its history was an education in itself. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and it was an absolute pleasure to be shown around by someone who is so passionate about Porto and Portugal. Highly recommended.

It's also a wonderful way to explore the beautiful city, but a huge reason for the enjoyable experience has got to be Joao!
He is very friendly and knowledgeable, very eager to share the history and the many stories about the city.
The grilled cod fish he recommended for lunch was fantastic.
He also gave me recommendations about where to eat and visit, and even sent me links of places and routes I can take on google maps!
Highly recommended.

We were a group of 4, and had a ball on this tour. Expect to be noticed as they are the only sidecar tour in Porto. Tour guide Joao was very funny, informative, and passionate about what he does. We took the half day and saw so many parts of Porto we would have missed on our own and learned some great history. We also saw some amazing views throughout! My friend and I split the time on the back of the bike and in the sidecar. Both were comfortable and fun!! I highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!

I recently had the pleasure of a half day sidecar tour. The whole experience was fantastic. Tour guide Joao was extremely knowledgeable, affable and made the tour so interesting. His extensive knowledge of the history both local and national made for a super tour. It's also a brilliant way to see the city and I was taken to all the major sites and to the best views of the city. Joao was great company and interacted with the many tourists who were fascinated by the motor bike. i found the whole experience so enjoyable and was the highlight of my recent visit to Porto
