  • Arrived late in the afternoon still a little stressed, Filippe and picked us up in side car at the hotel directly. The charm of the city seen under an approach of the most original, the kindness and information of Filippe immediately made us take the measure of this exceptional island that is Madeira. A very big thank you Filipe!!!

  • I can't sing enough praises for Madeira Sidecar Tours and our guide and driver, Nuno. Being an avid scooter-sidecar enthusiast, I was excited to ride on the Ural bikes. While they're not known for being fast, relative to my 150cc bike, they're quite exciting, even if I'm being hucked along on the back of the rig. Madeira Sidecar Tours' bikes are kept in great condition--both inside and out. I felt they were safe operation and that Nuno took great care when it came to safety. I particularly liked that the helmets included an audio system, making it so we could hear Nuno even when driving. As I've found out since, not all sidecar tours include this feature. As for the tour, my sister and I were greeted promptly at the set pickup location. I particularly appreciate that the operator will pick us up where we wanted instead of having one specific meetup point. After a briefing and some coordination, we were on the road. Where we went came down to two factors: where we wanted to go and whether the weather would permit it. As Madeira was completely new to us, we let Nuno know that we wanted to get in as much of the island as possible. Because of the weather, Nuno opted to take us to the west of Funchal. Our tour included an outbound trip on the old mountain roads, which ascended from sea level to about 2000' amsl, winding around the ridges and valleys. While I know we were always safe, it was a bit of a thrill ride on those roads. We got only God knows how many villages west of Funchal before turning around, at which point, we split the time between the coastal roads and the modern four-land highways that bridge valleys and tunnel though mountains. During the trip, Nuno informed us about the industries on island and what life is like. The tour was informative and I got to know Madeira and its history in an intimate way.
  • The highlight of my summer vacation was my sidecar tour in beautiful Madeira. Nothing can compare to touring this picturesque island with its beautiful views. Without such a wonderful tour guide(Filipe) we would have gone away without knowing many facts and historical value each city represented. I highly recommend touring the island in this very personal fashion! The ride in the sidecar alone was quite enjoyable! My husband and I are looking forward to another vacation in Madeira in the future. Thank you Filipe.... you are one of a kind!
  • Excellent experience off the beaten path. Highly recommended. Thanks Serge for safe driving and interesting explanations and anecdotes.
  • Felipe , thank you for a lovely morning on your motorbike and sidecar , you were very knowledgable and passionate about Maderia and gave us a lovely tour along the coast to Calheta. It was a great new experience and we would definitely recommend It. Thank you for the lovely photos you took during the tour a great reminder of our special time.
  • We had two wonderfull tours and can only recommend discovering the beauty of the island off the tourist tracks proposed elsewhere.
