Explore Lisbon’s hidden treasures in style — on a motorbike’s sidecar, during this 3-hour private tour. Zoom through Portugal’s charismatic capital while learning about its history from an expert local guide. Visit the city’s famous monuments like the Jerónimos Monastery and the iconic 16th-century Tower of Belem. Discover historical neighborhoods like Alfama, Bairro Alto and Chiado from the comfort of your sidecar, which can fit up to two passengers. Choose from a morning, afternoon or evening tour, or upgrade to a full-day tour.
What to Expect
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.
