Me and the wife opted for the 3hr trip rather than a longer one. We were picked up from the hotel as arranged promptly and got set to go. It was brilliant ! well worth the money, so much so that if we go back then I definitely go for the longer trips. Both the sidecar and riding pillion is comfortable and the pace relaxed....definitely not a white knuckle ride.

We had a tremendous morning touring the western side of this beautiful island. Nuno our driver was prompt, friendly, helpful and attentive. At all times we felt safe and comfortable and the envy of the people that we passed! Halfway through our tour we took a refreshment/ comfort stop, myself and husband took this opportunity to change seats enabling us to experience sitting in the sidecar. It’s a very ‘different’ type of holiday experience and we both enjoyed it very much. Thinking about practicalities, we wore long shorts, trainers and took a hoodie as those higher hills can be cloudy and cool. Our driver took several good photos of us which were emailed to us later that day. Brilliant service from start to finish.

Our guide Nono was very flexible in giving us a tailor-made tour. We were able to discover magnificent places little known to tourists and learn more about the local culture and economy. The fact that the explanations were in French was greatly appreciated. On the other hand, it is not a "sensational" experience as other travelers say, it is a pleasant and calm ride. Provide a small vest even in summer.
