Porto, Portugal

Experience hosted by João

2 hours
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 2 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

I will pick you up at your hotel or accommodations and we'll begin with the introduction to the sidecar. Then we are off at a slow pace so that we can talk about the views, places and people we are seeing as we go.
Brace yourself, we're going to time travel! Our experience is going to be a trip through Porto's history using the narrow streets, old neighborhoods and landmarks as the living examples of the history of the city that i will be telling you, starting 4000 years ago until our days. All the while experiencing the glamour of riding a classic sidecar.
This way i believe you'll get to know Porto, it's secrets and it's interesting little details and most importantly, my local perspective on the city.
You are on the hands of the world leader of a global conspiracy movement to make you fall in love with Porto. All resistance is futile, just enjoy the ride! :)
We Offset the Carbon Emissions of Your Tour with us.
Other things to note
We ride at a slow pace to enjoy the views and talk, so don´t worry about speed. I'll provide helmets. Don´t forget sunglasses, confortable clothes to hop on & off the sidecar and sun lotion.

My name is Joao and i'm the founder of Porto Sidecar Tours, a certified Tourism Animator and most importantly, inlove with my city, her stories and importance in the World history.
After a successfull but not very fullfilling career in management, i decided to create a experience that would allow me to work on and share my passions: my classic motorcycles and the love of my city, and Porto Sidecar Tours was born. It will be a pleasure to show you my Porto. Welcome!

Where you'll be

We'll explore Porto not through the beaten path but rather through the narrow streets where only a sidecar allows us to go.
I'll use the neighborhoods, private houses facades and landmarks as examples of periods of Porto's history, tying it all together so that you can understand Porto as if you were born here like me. At the end you'll understand why Porto is called the Invicta (undefeated) city or why we like to eat tripe.

This was such a fun way to get a feel for Porto when I first arrived! Joao was so friendly and accommodating when I had a short notice request. You can easily tell he loves Porto and loves to tell people about it! He knows a lot of the history of the city and of Portugal, and he showed me some things that are not on the normal tourist track. He also had great recommendations for food later in the day. The sidecar is beautiful and you feel like a celebrity everywhere you go :) this is great for a solo traveler or he can even accommodate a small group. I loved every minute!

Such an amazing experience!! The side car got lots of attention as it's such a unique thing to see! It was a great way to see the city and João had lots of insight to amazing locations to take me through. I highly recommend to take the tour on your first day in Porto as you can get an idea of the whole city and João was super sweet in messaging me additional things I should see as I walked around the city on my own. He was super caring and tailored the experience to what I wanted to see. I've already told friends coming to Porto that this tour is a must!!

From the moment Joao arrived I felt in safe hands. The vehicle is impressive to look at but also comfortable and spacious. As I had been in Porto walking on foot for 3 days I’d seen many sites so Joao adapted the trip and we went a little further out and to some places off the beaten track. Highlights were the backstreets and the distillery - where there was no pressure to buy - just warm, friendly people proudly describing their produce. The best part of the tour is Joao himself, he’s knowledgeable and interesting and a thoroughly nice man. As a lone traveller I really appreciated the opportunity to talk with someone local at length. There is only so much a guidebook can tell you and 3 hours with someone local is priceless.
