Your unforgettable 3-hour or full-day private motorbike sidecar tour through Lisbon begins by meeting your local guide and driver in central Lisbon. Get acquainted and then strap into your stylish sidebar. Kick back as you take off for Lisbon’s top sights, with the salty Atlantic breeze flowing through your hair. 
As you zip across town, admire Lisbon’s famed architecture and romantic streets en route to your first stop, the historic neighborhood of Belem. See the iconic 16th-century Tower of Belem, which represents Manueline art. Continue your drive to the Jerónimos Monastery. Then, make a pit stop at a local Portuguese patisserie, where you can indulge in Lisbon’s renowned custard tart, the pastel de nata (morning and afternoon tours only; own expense).
Continue to Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood, Alfama. As your ride through its melancholic streets, admire the Moorish architecture and listen to periodic historical anecdotes from your guide. Next, ride through the hip districts of Bairro Alto and Chiado.
Your tour wraps up at Baixa and Rossio, a lively area in downtown Lisbon where locals from many generations convene once the sun sets. Cruise the Avenida da Liberdade and Marques de Pombal, taking in the last bits of fresh air from your sidebar. If you selected the evening tour, you can make a stop to try Lisbon’s famous liqueur, ginjinha (own expense), at the end of your tour. 
Upgrade to a full-day tourTo make the most of your private Lisbon sidebar experience, upgrade to a full-day tour. Enjoy three additional hours, see more landmarks and monuments, and take advantage of more time to taste authentic local cuisine (own expense).
Next, relax on the sidecar as you cross the River Tagus along the 15th of April Bridge, a 1.5-mile (2.2-km) suspension bridge. Take in views of Lisbon from the municipality of Almada, and continue toward the Cristo Rei Sanctuary, which boasts great views of Lisbon from the distance.
Enjoy an additional stop at Parque das Nações Expo area, where the 1998 Universal Exposition was held.

We had a wonderful time with David. He is extremely knowledgeable of the history of Lisbon. He was able to take us where the normal bus tours couldn't go. This, along with his awesome color commentary, made this tour the best we've ever been on.

What a cool tour! Lisbon is just too good a place not to see in every way possible. On this occasion as the sidecar was out of commission we were able to be taken around in an even cooler retro Jeep. A hell of a good substitute. The tour lasts for four hours and really gives you an understanding of the geography, history, events and people that formed what is now modern day Lisbon. This beautiful town is really stunning, especially on a sunny day like the one we had, and our knowledgeable guide was able to take us through Barrio Alto, Chiado, Alfama, Belem and many other areas whose names escape me now. Just a great, informative, cruisey and comfortable experience. I thoroughly recommend it!

Interesting tour in an open jeep. The side car was broken so Daniel offered us an open jeep tour instead and it worked very well. It is nice to have an open view and not be restricted to windows to see out when you are touring. It is however bumpier than a car so be ready to be jostled. Our guide Daniel was friendly and knowledgeable and gave us a good understanding of Lisbon's origin as well as its layout as a city. Thank you Daniel for a good time, Michelle and Phil

My daughter and I had a wonderful time with George who provided a comprehensive tour meaningful tips about other noteworthy items restaurants, nightlife and made the adventure safe, but also a tad exciting driving around the steep roads. This tour made our trip to Lisbon unforgettable!

My partner and I took the full day tour of Lisbon by sidecar and our driver, Daniel, was a knowledgeable tour guide and an excellent driver. He showed us all the highlights of Lisbon and we would highly recommend this tour for a fun and informative day. We took this tour as a shore excursion and Daniel fitted the tour perfectly to suit our port time.

Our guide Luis was outstanding, accommodating and flexible. We could not have see this much of Lisbon in four hours with any other tour. My only suggestion to this company is to put headsets in the helmets so Luis can communicate with us while he was driving.

The best city tour I've ever been on. Daniel is friendly, informative and, added bonus, he's handsome too. We had great fun. I grinned from ear to ear. Wonderful, personal and different way to see a city. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

We took the tour on our first full day and it was the best thing we could have done. Not only seeing the incredible sights but getting a real understanding of the history and that shaped this beautiful city and it's wonderful, friendly people. The tour was both exhilarating and moving and I can't think of a better way of seeing Lisbon. By taking this tour we were able to get our bearings for the rest of our stay. It meant we could maximise the experience of our too short three day stay. I was our first trip to Portugal and the food and service at the street cafes was the best we have experienced. We will definitely return.

I am so glad we did this amazing tour. Zipping around Lisbon on a motorcycle with sidecar was certainly one of the best ways to experience this city of hills. Our guide George was gracious, fun,and informative, and a great motorcyclist who made our ride feel very safe- it was my first time on a moto

Very excited to take this tour ,but a little apprehensive as we are not particularly agile and in our late sixties. We needn't have worried ,the apprehension passed within 5 minutes. Many streets in Lisbon are cobbled and for the first few minutes I thought we would be quite shaken but we soon got the hang of it. It was a great way to see Lisbon ,with so much explained in the 4 hours we were with our Guide who was knowledgeable and pleasant. We never felt rushed during the whole morning. He was happy to tailor the tour to suit us. I cannot praise this tour enough.
