A unique experience in Porto

The unique way of discovering Porto

Are you coming for a few hours to Porto and want to discover the city in a private shore excursion?

Looking for the Shore Excursion Tour away from the big groups in buses and have a Unique Experience?

We will start our Shore Excursion Tour of Porto by picking you up at the cruise ship terminal and from there explore the oceanfront on our way to the city.

The rhythm is slow-paced with a lot of conversation, historical facts, and curiosities, lots of stops for photos and to enjoy the views while visiting places where the bus and the big groups don’t go. All of this in a beautiful motorcycle, with a knowledgeable guide.

Next, along the ocean and riverfront, we’ll understand the important connection of the ocean and river Douro to the city’s history. Through the Historical Center, we’ll see places like S.Bento train station, Miragaia, Ribeira and the Stock Exchange Palace.
Then up to the city center, we’ll explore the old neighborhoods like Clérigos and Vitória, learn all the history being them and the great views that Porto has to offer.

After, we´ll cross to Gaia, on the other side of the river, see the D. Luis bridge and the Port wine neighborhood before returning to Porto.

Time to explore:

At the end, you’ll have a 1 hour stop in the city center and you can choose between:

– Some personal time to explore and do some shopping;

– A private visit to a Port Wine company for a bespoke tour & tasting created for our guests. Here you’ll learn the history of Port Wine and the Cellars, learn about the Douro Valley where Port Wine is grown. Afterwards you’ll tour the old cellars and see some of the oldest Ports in the world, have access to parts of the cellars closed to the general public and taste 4 Ports to learn their differences. Always with the explanations of an expert guide.

Finally, we take you back to the ship.

IMPORTANT: The duration of the stop for personal time or the Port tasting must be respected in order to guarantee the timely arrival back at the ship.

Hands down the best tour on Porto! João is the perfect combination of historian and storyteller.I felt safe the whole time and it was super fun from start till finish. The bike and sidecar are amazing and always draw a lot of attention to us, adding almost a celebrity feel to the experience. I highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Porto.

Great! Cool! Funny!! We had a wonderful time with João in this original tour! We appreciate his way of explaining us history, legends and amazing information about Porto.He suggest us other places to visit that were very beautiful, places to eat that were delicious.We will recommend João to our friends.Barbara & Simone.

Foi uma excelente experiência.Adoramos percorrer as belas ruas do Porto de sidecar guiados pelo João.João é um excelente guia, conhecedor da cidade e extremamente simpático.Sem dúvida, uma experiência a recomendar a quem queira conhecer a cidade de uma forma diferente, de sidecar.


Uma experiência única com um guia incrível. Apesar de sermos dos Porto, ainda fomos surpreendidos com lugares e informações que desconhecíamos. O João é um guia super profissional e de uma simpatia extrema, incansável em nós proporcionar uma passeio inesquecível. Para quem tiver oportunidade de visitar o Porto de sidecar, recomendamos. Muito obrigado João, por estes momentos inesquecíveis, num dia tão importante para nós.
