Testimonials


Tour desde Oporto No podemos estar más contentos de haber elegido este Tour. Manuel, nuestro guía no paró de darnos información tanto histórica como actual y como ese día no hubo más personas en el tour, pudimos aprovechar al máximo nuestro tiempo. Fué tan buena la experiencia con Manuel que a los dos días decidimos hacer otro Tour con él. Sin duda de los mejores guías que hemos conocido. Recomendable 100%."

saragH2659HISee what people say about us in TripAdvisor About us

Amazing experience and guide! As a solo traveler, the Sardinhas Douro tour was recommended by the owner of a Porto restaurant (Belos Aires). I joined two couples with Manuel as our guide. It was both lovely and educational. We loved the tour and Manuel so much we booked a second tour to Braga! Go with Sardinhas. And Manuel if he’s available. If you aren’t already in love with Porto and Portugal, you will be by tour’s end. Promise. Rita"

Porto on a Vespa 125 - it doesn’t get any better Avaliação do TripAdvisor: Sardinhas Scooter Rental We accidentally bumped into this store which is only a minute from the Mercado Ferreira Borges. There were quite a few options of 50cc to 125cc scooters - we were given optimum tips and took the 125 Vespa - a smooth rental that brought us a day of joy and seeing the best places of Portugal without any effort at a very fair rate. A big thank you to the “Sardinhas” - you gave our holiday in Porto a big boost!"

Douro Valley Tour - Perfect experience The service was exceeding my expectations, in terms of experience, support, adaptation to our needs and constraints on the trip. Recommend to anyone visiting the North of Portugal to use their services."

AaronTravelerS

We rented Vespas from Carlos and couldn't have been happier. We aren't young...(66 years old) and rented them for 9 days. One for each of us, we were able to reach areas that would have taken forever to walk or even bus. Rides along the beach, up into older areas and out of the way streets lead us to fun adventures. We parked them easily each day outside our Airbnb. Carlos provided locks for us and we left belongings in the seats when we walked around. The Vespas were in great shape too, we never had a single problem with starting them. The streets were easy to navigate. We highly recommend Oporto Rent!"

Mary lou Z

On my first day in Porto I decided to rent a scooter for a short trip along the bank of the river to the ocean shore. The Vespa Primavera offered by the guys from Oporto Rent was an amazing option for such a journey. It was so much fun riding it. The mechanical condition of the vehicle was very good. Staff is extremely friendly, the renting process is fast and easy. Prices match the information given on the website."

Excellent service! Personnel très aimable qui sait prendre le temps de renseigner sur la ville, les circuits, ils sont très professionnels et accueillants. Large choix de vélo, très satisfait du vélo électrique. Je recommande et y retournerai sans hésiter dès mon prochain séjour!"

Adelinehang

Un acierto total! Cogimos una vespa y nos recorrimos todo oporto con ella. El dueño muy majo, nos explico todo sobre el alquiler, como iba a ser el deposito y el tramite, muy transparente. La moto una gozada y muy buena relacion calidad/precio. 24h de alquiler 35€. Para el que quiera ver Oporto de una forma comoda, sin problemas de trafico y perderse en los callejones, esta es su eleccion."

Ongelofelijk vriendelijk onthaal en super service! We hebben hier met 5 vrienden 2 dagen een fiets gehuurd en 1 dag een scooter. Carlos is supervriendelijk en geeft je tips naargelang je interesse!

Het maakte ons verblijf in Porto onvergetelijk. @ Carlos:Keep up the good work, you are a great guy!"

Pedal Bliss! We experienced two delightful days cycling in Porto on both sides of the Douro and along the Atlantic shore.Carlos and Elder ensured our bicycles were properly fitted before we set off. Carlos provided us with a map and recommendations for our journey. On our return we were overwhelmed with their friendliness. We especially enjoyed meeting Paula."

Scooter rental was the best! The rental guy, Carlos, was super friendly. He made it very personal, but professional. The rental process was simple, and the price very fair! We were happy to do business with Oporto rent! Carlos made our vacation that much better! We saw so much more of the city because of the scooter, we would highly recommend, if you’re going to be in the heart of Porto, renting a scooter is the way to go!"

Liam CrosbyFollow Liam

Good price and very friendly service + very central location and Vespa scooters. Recommended :)"

Radovan ŠurlákFollow Radovan

The best way to see Porto! Carlos was so helpful and friendly! 25€ for the day is well worth it. We drove for hours and saw so many parts of the area that we never would have seen, and it only cost us 4.25€ to fill up after our trek! We rented a car for our first couple days, but the scooter was a better idea. It's hard to find parking when you're in a car, but the scooter can be parked pretty much anywhere!"

Laura Anne RutherfordFollow Laura

Very Helpful! We found the owner extremely friendly and helpful. he gave us recommendations for our route, told us we could take the bikes over the river on the water taxi which we did, and recommended the restaurants at the docks in Matosinhos which was fab area."

Motorcycle Group TOURS


Some general rules

  • Time2Ride team from Sardinhas Tours are identified with custom fluorescent vest
  • As a rule, in addition to Road Leader, there is also an element to close the caravan
  • All the participants will be given a Tour Data Sheet with the staging points and the most important contacts in case of need of help
  • The Road Leader will seek to maintain a constant speed in accordance with the limits established by the road code of the country in question. Only in special circumstances should Road Leader be overtaken by the remaining elements of the caravan
  • Stops for fuelling will be made, on average, 200 to 200 km. The fuel tanks must be attested before the start of the tour.
  • Changes of direction will always be indicated in advance by the Road Leader, therefore all elements should use the direction indicator (blinks)
  • Each element of the caravan should be responsible for the previous bike, that is, control the rear view of the bike that precedes it and slow down when it stops viewing it. This chain behaviour will slow the progress of the whole caravan, thus allowing them to merge. Never stop or back away. If something has happened the Time2Ride element that closes the caravan will make the necessary decisions for its resolution. At the limit, the caravan will reconvene at the next scheduled stop
  • The elements of the caravan should avoid creating large spaces between them in order to avoid the so-called accordion effect, that is, when the 1st front element accelerates to recover lost space, the caravan “stretches” in such a way that the “gap ” among the elements grows exponentially. The last element (depending on the number of elements) will be forced to accelerate above that recommended to recover the group.
  • If you want to film or photograph the group, you should advise the Road Leader in advance so that you can get out or over the caravan without causing any embarrassment. Places with a relevant landscape may already be referenced in the program for a short stop.
  • In order to allow better visibility and safety of the participants, the caravan should move in alternate positions (in X) on the road, ie if the Road Leader is leaning against the axis of the road the next element should lean against the edge and so on. In addition to the visibility, in case of emergency braking there will be twice the space for the defensive manoeuvre. If it is necessary to deviate from any obstacle (eg a hole) there will also be more room for this. Avoid circling “on top of the wheel” or next to the front runner.
  • At stop locations, follow Road Leader’s instructions on how to park motorcycles in a way that will not hinder traffic safety or prevent pedestrians from passing. Be very careful with the domino effect.

 Group tour with Time2Ride – Some advice

  • Participants must always carry the supplementary key of the motorcycle with them. They must also carry with them, with visible access, pertinent medical information in the event of an accident or health problem (chronic diseases, unusual blood type, etc.), in addition to a preferential number of contact in case of emergency. A scanned copy on the Smartphone of every document on the motorcycle is always a good principle in case of any loss.
  • If it is planned to leave the country it is advisable to request in advance the European Health Card which allows free access to the NHS of the country or countries of the European Union.
  • Participants are advised to carry with them any puncture repair system (spray, cleats, etc.).
  • Before starting the journey, check the oil level, water, battery condition, lights and tire pressure. Make sure that the number of miles you have planned allows you to make the trip safely and within the limits of the next revision recommended by the manufacturer. Do not forget that a tire close to total wear hits the breaking point very quickly and especially if it goes under high temperatures. Make sure your safety and that of others.
  • When possible, wear suitable motorcycle equipment, such as footwear with a good level of protection, pants and jacket with protections, suitable gloves and a helmet properly homologated and within the validity period of the same. Always privilege your safety. If weather conditions are unstable, you should carry a good sweater (fleece sweater or wind stopper), thermal collar (buff), rain suit and waterproof gloves.
  • Use maximum moderation in alcohol consumption. In case of using a motorcycle rental, never forget that the consumption of alcoholic beverages or any narcotic, as a rule, and in case of an accident, invalidates the insurance contracted through the renting company.
