Make your cruise a better experience

You choose the dream cruise with places you’ve always wanted to discover in Europe, the Mediterranean, and in Portugal. But you do not always want to do those group tours, especially when you stop in a destination as secure as Portugal….

What to do then?

Well, fortunately, in the Algarve and in Lisbon, you can count on the shore excursions of Bike my Side.

You are picked up at the time you want and brought your where you want just in time.

These tours are an excellent way to discover the region, better than the tour bus, because it is open all around, comfortable and safe.

The tours are customized according to what you ask and you will receive very nice information on many levels.

You will have a wonderful time, learn a lot, you will see some beautiful views and take pictures to document your adventure.

Riding between each place is a lot of fun, with your partner and you taking turns on the back and in the sidecar.

The ride is in a spotless Ural sidecar. Something you will probably never do again in your life…

What else can we say?

So, the next time your cruise stops in Lisbon or the Algarve, take a private shore excursion tour with Bike my Side private tours.

One of our all time favorite tours!

We previously went on the Bike My Side tour in Lisbon and it was the most enjoyable tour we had ever been on…now Daniel has to share that distinction with Delfim! The tour to the beaches was wonderful. Delfim is a great guide with such a nice personality and very interesting information about the places we saw. Being in the open gives a much different perspective and a panoramic view. It’s a comfortable ride and we old retired folks had a blast…you could tell by the smiles and thumbs up we were the envy of many. We will definitely book with Bike My Side again when we return to the Algarve and absolutely recommend them.

Superb way to travel round the beautifull beaches of Portugal
Fantastic day from start to finish. Prompt pickup at hotel. Delfim and Philipe were very experienced bike riders, the bikes were superb. Felt really safe and comfy in sidecar. Views were unbelievable , we would never have got to see all these beautiful sites by coach as the bikes went up narrow side streets through beautiful little towns..Delfim was very knowledgable about the history of the places we visited and it was a very interesting tour, we learnt a lot about the Portuguese scenery and lifestyle. Would defiantly book a tour next time we visit again…well worth the money…both couples thoroughly enjoyed the day !!! Thanks again guys. 🙂

Awesome Experience

Because life is all about adventures and experiences, the Sidecar Tour is a MUST DO if you visit Lisbon. This is one of the best ways to get around and learn about Lisbon’s history. We had so much fun and enjoyed every minute of our tour. BIG thanks for the cool ride Daniel!

The best entry to Lisboa

To start your Lisboa stay with Daniel is the best you can do. It was fun, Daniel told us so much about the city, and it was a fantastic ride. This was the first time as a tourist I was permanently photographed by other tourists 🙂
The half day tour was enough for us. You get to all the interesting places, you can visit on your own later on.
Thanks a lot for cool ride Daniel 🙂

Having experienced every month of the year here, we thought it might be fun to give you an idea of what you can expect – with some hints about the weather and what to pack if you are coming here on holiday!

Algarve temperatures

So here goes, let’s start with Spring, which can be a very nice time of year to visit the Algarve:

You may need to pack a sweater or warm coat for the evening, but during the day you can enjoy some lovely balmy temperatures – even in February! 17 to 20 degrees – sometimes even slightly hotter during the day – and it’s often 8 or 9 degrees in the evening. The oranges are at their…
