What to expect
Meet your friendly motorcycle guide in the morning or evening in central Portimão for a private day trip to Alvor and Ferragudo. After listening to a safety briefing, strap on your helmet and hop into your sidecar. If there are two people, one rides behind your guide or pillion. Discuss any places of particular interest and your guide can tailor your journey accordingly. Then, begin your adventure through Portimão and enjoy insightful and historical commentary from your guide. Learn how Portimão was critical in the Algarve’s fishing and sardine canning industry. Leave Portimão and enjoy views as you cross into Ferragudo. Cruise by white terracotta-roofed fishermen’s cottages on your way to the Arade River. Ride along cobbled streets and absorb the lively atmosphere of this up and coming restaurant scene. Next, motor to the Ferragudo lighthouse which sits on a bluff staring towards Portimao. Stop here for amazing views over the river towards Portimao with the Monchique hills setting the background. Then stretch your eyes the other direction towards the Atlantic Ocean for a panoramic delight. Coast down through Portimão Old Town towards Alvor and admire landmarks including the 18th-century church Our Lady of the Conception. In this quaint town cradled by the Alvor River estuary (Ria de Alvor) and sea, explore cliffside beaches and charming riverfront shops. If you desire, stop to shop or to grab some refreshments (own expense). Loop back with your chauffeur past the sparkling sands of Praia da Rocha in Portimão and break at Santa Catarina Fort. Walk around this 17th-century maritime fortress and see how its strategic placement helped protect the peninsula from pirate attacks and other invaders. Meet back with your guide at a predetermined time and voyage back to central Portimão. Then, bid farewell to your guide.

Wonderful sidecar tour in the Algarve
Nov. 2018 • Couples
We absolutely loved our sidecar tour in the Algarve region. It was easy to meet the tour and riding in the sidecar was awesome! Got our riding gear (helmets, jacket) and we were ready to take in some beautiful scenery. We always felt safe and the history and information given was top notch. Great guide and driver. Can't recommend this activity enough.

A Lovely Eye opener!
What an adventure! Delfim was a wonderful tour guide. We were so excited to travel by vintage bike and side car and were not disappointed. We travelled all over, learning so much about the history of where we were staying. Delfim was able to answer lots of questions and knew all the best places to go for photographs. Would definitely recommend doing this!! Thank you Delfim, you made or day 😊
