WHAT’S THE MAX CAPACITY OF A TOUR?
Currently each Ride Group can accommodate up to 25 persons. The line of vintage vehicles isn’t advised to be any longer otherwise it’ll cause some crazy traffic jams, and get frequently broken up at traffic lights.
We have accommodated groups of up to 120 in a day. For MICE events where numbers are large, we suggest splitting the booking over a few days, to accommodate staff numbers in the 100’s.
Or, up to 50 persons in 1 hour if you request a Bespoke Ride & Walking Tour, where we split into 2 groups of 25. However for an optimal experience when the group is large, we recommend 2-3 hours to preserve the quality of the experience.
KICK ASS EVENTS
If you book the fleet for an event, around 160 x 15 minute rides can be given over a period of 4 hours with a Ride Group consisting of 10 Singapore Sidecars. Or 80 x 30 minute rides. Or 40 x 60 minute rides. Just shout and say which!
CAN I SELF DRIVE?
We’d really like you to enjoy that experience – however for safety reasons Singapore Law does not allow visitors to rent or drive scooters or motorbikes at this point. It’s also worth noting that sidecars are a slightly different creature to handling a normal scooter, and the instability often causes first time riders to crash and mount kerbs or graze fire hydrants and lampposts – not an uncommon experience for our trainees.
Payment, Reservations and Deposit
We collect online payment before each tour.
Our rides do require reservations.
Reservations can be made using the “Book Now” button on each respective page.
Please note that, due to PayPal terms and conditions, for deposit payment made more than a month ago, there is an additional 5% PayPal admin fee to process your refund.
60-45 Days : NIL Penalty
44-30 Days : 50%
29-15 Days : 80%
Below 14 Days: 100%
We strongly recommend reserving in advance if coming as a group of 5 or more. If you have a group of 10 or more, we are able to conduct a dedicated tour just for your group and arrange additional vintage vehicles for groups up to 25. Just go to “Bespoke Tour” to send in your request. Two weeks’ notice is appreciated.
Reservations help us determine whether we might need an additional guide for your group, especially for larger MICE and Incentive groups.
Is there a Minimum Requirement?
We usually require a minimum of 2 participants before a tour commences; depending on the tour.
But if you’re travelling alone, just drop us a note and we’ll find a way to fit you in.
Do note that we will advise you over email by 1pm before the day of the tour, in event of tour cancellation, so do check your email inbox before heading down. You can also contact us to check on our tours schedule.
IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING – CAN I SELF DRIVE?
We’d really like you to enjoy that experience – however for safety reasons Singapore Law does not allow visitors to rent or drive scooters or motorbikes at this point.
For now each vintage ride comes with a fully trained driver.
Kids between 10 and 100 can ride. A very happy Jeep support vehicle is available upon request for kids under 10 at half price per child if accompanied by a full fare adult, or at half price with an extra $70 for an optional babysitter.
Meeting Point and Directions
The Meeting Point and Directions for our tours can be found together with the tour details. All tours begin at or near MRT stations. Most tours end where they began. Our team will provide directions to nearest MRT stations, your next destination, or back to the meeting point at the end of the tour.
How to Recognize US?
You can‘t miss a convoy of vintage vespa sidecars. Right?
What if the Guide isn’t at the meeting point?
You are either at the wrong meeting point or have arrived after the scheduled ride timing. Our team usually waits an additional 5 minutes in case you had a sleep in. If in doubt, please contact your Lead Rider, who’s number will have been given during your booking.
Singapore Sidecars tours run come rain or shine. Unless it’s pouring something mental or a volcano has gone off. In the event of inclement weather, please contact us 30 minutes before the tour, to confirm our schedule. We reserve the right to cancel tours in the event of inclement weather (or if a volcano goes off).
All tours are available as well as customisable for private bookings. Private tours can be scheduled morning, afternoon or evening. We have led tours for as few as a single person or as many as 120 people. There are fee minimums for private tours. For more information, or to schedule a private tour, please select “Bespoke Tour” or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
