About
My name is Carlos Nunes and I was born in the Algarve 46 years ago. I've had a passion for motorcycles since I was little. I've been collecting motorcycles for a few years now. Over time I created foreign friends living in the Algarve who share a taste for motorbikes. As some of them didn't have one, they were invited to use mine. There we went for lunch here and there in our Algarve. Hence the idea of creating Algarve Classic Rides. Surely a customer will arrive and a friend will leave... The ride is just the beginning.

My brother and I were treated to a terrific riding adventure . The classic Yamaha motorcycles were a great match for the Tour . We made several stops at points of interest and had a tasty lunch at a cozy Portuguese cafe. Carlos was the perfect host , we were extremely satisfied.
Looking forward to our next ride!

Had the most wonderful experience on my bike tour with Algarve Classic Rides. Carlos is a lovely chap, fantastic guide, very helpful, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. He knew all the best biking roads to take us that we'd never have found ourselves and the bikes were brilliant, immaculately maintained by Carlos himself and so easy to ride. They were absolutely perfect for just enjoying the empty winding roads, magnicient mountain scenery and ocean views and the authentic villages we passed though, including one where we stopped at a traditional Algarve Taverna for the most delicious meal which was also included in the tour price! The whole day was brilliant value for money, we had a fantastic time, loved every minute and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing riding experience in the sunny Algarve - thanks Carlos!

I've done motorbike tours and hired bikes in several countries I've visited but this one was by far the best. Having now ridden the famous N2 I can see why so many press releases I read about new bikes take place in this area. The tarmac is superb, it's just bend after bend, many cambered so you smoothly swing through one after the other, superb views and best of all - no traffic!! An almost unbelievable lack of tin boxes getting in your way and if you do come up behind one they invariably pull to one side to let you pass. I always thought the French were good at this but the Portuguese are on another level. The owner, Carlos, is a lovely guy with excellent English and he has personally restored a fleet of Yamaha FZX750's to immaculate condition for you to just pick the colour you fancy and go for a ride. His knowledge and passion for bikes and his homeland really shines through to make that special difference. He guides you on his equally immaculate Yamaha V-Max to places that you wouldn't see as a normal tourist, or simply just hired a bike like I've done in the past. The day included riding up through the mountains with just enough stops to hydrate and take in the fantastic views before descending down towards the coast and the town of Tavira, riding right next to a beautiful (deserted) beach at one point. We had a lovely traditional Algarvian meal (included in the price) at a small restaurant in the mountains, sat outside, overlooking stunning views South. Again, as a normal tourist you just wouldn't sample this type of local cuisine or be part of this genuine experience - you wouldn't be able to find the restaurant for a start! All in all I thought the day was excellent value for money, especially as everything is provided, and refreshingly there are no hidden extras. Carlos' sole focus was to make the day as interesting and as enjoyable as possible and it was certainly an experience I will never forget. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Being a motorcyclist from Canada it was a no brainer to give this a try. Carlos was a very knowledgeable host. He is passionate about the Algarve and motorcycles. The tour included magnificent views of the countryside and the ocean. One of my highlights was traveling through the villages in mountains and along the coast. Carlos treated me to lunch at a roadside restaurant with an amazing view. The meal was splendid. Carlos is very knowledgeable about the history of the Algarve. His passion and pride are undeniable. He took me to places that I would not be able to find on my own. His bikes are meticulously maintained and in fantastic shape. He let me pick the bike that suited my riding style. This was the
the highlight of my two week trip to the Algarve! Thank you for theexperience, Carlos. Until next time my friend!

We loved it and intend to repeat it. My wife and I were on vacation and were looking for something really different to do. We intended to get to know the region, the mountains and the cuisine, but driving by car was out of the question. It was through a friend who had already tried it that we discovered Algarve classic rides. Sonia, at first, was apprehensive about the idea, but at the end of the day her smile was not deceiving. From the curves of the mountains, from the rural interior to the coast, along paths that only the natives know, even the homemade oregaos that we buy that day have a different flavor. Thank you to Mr Carlos Nunes for the experience he provided us. We wish we could put those helmets back on.

The motorbike I rented was in perfect condition, clean and well looked after. It was a real joy to pilot this machine along the region's scenic roads. Algarve Classic Rides was committed to offering a high quality service, ensuring that I had a memorable experience.
