Tour description provided by Viator

Run your tastebuds past the Algarve’s delicious tapas and wine on a 3-hour private motorcycle tour from Portimão. With an experienced chauffeur-guide, ride in the sidecar or go pillion, and revel in the scenery as you explore some much-loved local eateries in Portimão and Alvor. Feast on fish or seafood tapas, savor an Algarvian sweet or dessert, and taste up to four types of wine at an award-winning winery near Lagoa. With full attention from a private guide, it’s a fun and rewarding introduction to the tastes of the region.
Choose from a morning or afternoon tour when you book, and then make your own way to central Portimão to join up with your private driver-guide and classic touring motorcycle. As this is a private tour, chat with your guide and perhaps tailor your itinerary to suit any particular culinary interests you have. After a safety briefing, put on your helmet and board the sidecar or motorcycle — if there are two of you, one will ride pillion behind your guide. Then, feel the thrill as the engine revs and you set out on your tour.Relish the breeze as you cruise around Portimão and the surrounding coast, towns and villages. Admire the views of the Atlantic and sands of Praia da Rocha beach, and delve into the pretty village of Alvor, whose cobbled streets are littered with neighbourhood tapas bars and restaurants.While you ride, hear about the Algarve’s food history and culinary specialities, and enjoy several tasting stops to sample some of the staples for yourself.Venues vary on each tour, but you can typically expect to enjoy some fish or seafood tapas, and sink your teeth into a delicious sweet treat such as an almond pastry, cake or other mouthwatering morsel.Additionally, head out toward the whitewashed town of Lagoa and visit one of the Algarve’s leading wine estates. Gaze at the leafy vineyards as you glide up to the winery and then take a seat to taste up to four of its red, white or rosé varieties.As you sip, hear about the unique microclimate that helps nurture the estate’s award-winning wines, and learn how to distinguish each wine’s flavors and aromas with helpful tips from your wine host.Finally, return to your motorbike for a scenic ride back into Portimão, where your tour ends where it started.
