YES! and lots of fun!
“Mercedez Maria” is a motorcycle with WW2 looks but XXI century mechanics.
Also… we have three wheels so we can´t lose balance and we will ride very slowly to enjoy the city and you will forget that you are on a motorcycle.
Top speeds are a death defying 20mph!!
Yes, older than 7 years because in Portugal children are only allowed on motorcycles after 7 years of age. We also have to distribute the weight on the motorcycle, between adults and children, for balance and safety reasons. So, if there is one adult and one child as passengers, the adult will need to sit in the sidecar whilst the child rides on the pillion seat of the motorcycle. The child needs to have 1,20m or more.
Children older than 12 years have no restrictions.
Yes! We are obligated to have insurance by law and as a requirement for our tourism license. We have motorcycle insurance; personal responsibility insurance with 50 million Euros coverage and passenger insurance that covers hospitalisation costs and a trip back home in case of accident, for all the occupants.
Of course! Until 24h before the tour you can check with us our availability to change the time or date. We will try to do our best to accommodate you.
Why would you want to do a silly thing like that? And miss on the best, most fun and unique way of getting to know Porto?? But if you have to cancel, please do so at least 7 days before the tour, so that we can give the opportunity to other beautiful people like yourself to also have lots of fun. After that there will be a 50% cancellation fee. Tours purchased through our partner platforms such as TripAdvisor, may have different specific rules, please check there for information.
For us, at Porto Sidecar Tours it was very important to try and make sure that we could do our part in fighting Climate Change. So we joined the United Nations UNFCCC program and we offset all the activities of Porto Sidecar Tours. The back office work of getting to our guests, talking to them to book their tours and the Tours itself. The cost of this offset carbon footprint program is supported by us and it’s not an extra cost to our guests but rather the benefit of knowing that the tour they are buying doesn’t contribute to Climate Change.
