We were on a cruise ship with one day in Lisbon and a friend recommended Joao and his motorbike tours of Lisbon so, at very short notice, we managed to book a tour on a vintage motor bike and side car. It was the best decision we had made. Four of us on two bikes, and sidecars, spent several hours in the company of two excellent guides, stopping at various sights around the city. It was exhilarating and such a different way to tour a city. You had to hold on tight on the back on the bike as Lisbon is pretty hilly. We went pretty much everywhere a tourist with a day in the city would want to go. We can thank Joao enough for taking us on the best day out.

Top marks for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, even in the unseasonal drizzle. The sidecar tour is a great way to see Lisbon in a relatively short space of time. We took in some tremendous views from the peak of the city, as well as visiting the oldest bookshop in the world and enjoying coffee in a beautiful old bar. The guides are extremely knowledgeable, introducing me to the poetry of Fernando Pessoa (and in return, I quoted WB Yeats!) while we were discussing the Portuguese love of literature. The streets of Lisbon are narrow and many are paved with cobbles, so the sidecar is a superb way of navigating this lovely city. Thoroughly recommended.

We booked 6 sidecars for 2 days in 2015 as part of a destination wedding "treat". Joao was so helpful arranging the tours and the drivers were so fun. They made sure everyone has a great experience, including my 90 year old mother and a friend who was "sure he was just too tall to ride! Can't say enough good things. We've since had friends tour with Joao and they are good to send pictures back!

After touring Lisbon in a sidecar with Joao which was great fun we followed up the next day with a trip to Sintra and Cascais in an old Citroen. Once again Joao was an absolute gem and a goldmine of information and history regarding the areas we were seeing and Portugal in general. I would recommend trying to fit in this day trip out of Lisbon as both places are so worth seeing. On both days Joao followed up overnight sending us links to video on things we were discussing...now that's going the extra mile!

We Loved our Side Car half day tour of Lisbon. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and it was really one of the highlights of our trips! We really enjoyed learning about the history of Lisbon and how things are and have been from a local point of view. We would not have had this experience and knowledge had we not done the tour. We went to a variety of different places, had great coffee, amazing Pasteis de nata, saw great sites and it was thoroughly enjoyable and worth the money!
