We were picked up at our hotel by driver Rodrigo for a three hours trip Curral da Freitas and its breathtaking views. We fully enjoyed our trip , we were comfortably seated both in the sidecar and rear seat and felt really safe at all times. We had many opportunities to take pictures of so beautiful sites on our way . Great thanks to Felipe and Rodrigo for the great tour . We warmly recommend as it is an outstanding experience .

We booked only the night before when we stumbled across the website. The service was very friendly and efficient. Felipe picked us up from our hotel and was punctual. We had contemplated hiring a car for a day or two but had a much better time on the bike with a local guide who could take us to places that we'd never had found even with GPS and the library of guide books available to us, and who could answer questions on anything and everything that caught our eye, informing us of the history and culture of just about everything we asked. We had good communications through the helmet radios, which might be improved only by three way mesh communications but both my partner and I were able to fully converse with Felipe during the experience. I am an experienced motorcyclist but would firmly recommend this to anyone without motorcycle experience. The ride was well paced and the seating in both the sidecar and rear seat very comfortable and I felt very safe with Felipe riding the twisty roads around the island. The view from the rear seat was excellent and I probably looked like an owl to other road users as I took full advantage of the ability to see around and up and down without the doors or roof of a car or tour bus limiting my view.

Wonderful tour for my wife and myself. We are not 'bikers' but fear not! We felt safe with our guide Rodrigo. We left it to him to take us to great viewing spots and was able to share his experience and knowledge of Madeira. We arrived on a cruise ship and we booked direct and it was an easy to find meeting point. We loved the island and will look at booking another different tour on our return. Get the wind in your face and enjoy!

Thank you Felipe for a really memorable tour of your beautiful island. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone. We were collected at our cruise ship which was super convenient and dropped back into the old town of Funchal to continue exploring. Felipe is a font of knowledge about his island and despite a few problems with the mic system both my husband and I learnt loads. We stopped for a fab Portuguese tart and coffee with breathtaking views. We will come back to Madeira and will certainly book another tour.

Our motorbike and sidecar trip was the best part of our Madeira holiday. We've been to Madeira before and done minibus and Jeep tours but the sidecar experience was truly exceptional. Why? Because it's only by actually travelling in the open air that you really capture the sights, scents and sounds of Madeira. And let's be honest, how many of us have travelled on a motorbike and sidecar before? We got loads of interested stares and friendly waves from spectators as we passed by. Our driver (Nat) was professional, friendly, careful, and accommodating. There was a particular place on the island we wanted to see and he was happy to vary the normal route to take us there, and to wait while we explored. The intercom system on the helmets is very effective; I was surprised how good it is. A word of caution, take something you can wear if it starts to rain; it did while we were there. So long trousers and a jacket are perhaps a good idea. The sidecar had a boot so my wife could put her handbag in there as well as the rucksack I was carrying. Nat took pictures which were forwarded to us afterwards and which amazed our friends back home. We will likely return to Madeira and will doubtlessly take one of the tours again. We couldn't recommend it enough. We had a great time; get the wind in your hair!
