What we do

Concept    |     Insiders    |     Fleet
Founded in October of 2008 in Shanghai, China, Insiders Experience offers slow travel experiences for people to enjoy both an intense destination experience and a unique motor adventure.


A private access to a 1920s villa, a friend’s rooftop to enjoy the view from, a secret craft workshop, a tea break in a historical house or a detour on long-forgotten tracks, we thrive at pushing closed doors to create genuine travel experiences by vintage vehicles. Your journey is tailor-made according to your centers of interest and always off the beaten path. Spontaneous and independant, our insiders keep exploring on the way, so be on the lookout for a fortunate stroke of serendipity. Happy travel.

A journey is much more than just an exotic destination. Share your centers of interest and let your insider build an exclusive adventure of encounters, discoveries and curiosities.


Our insiders are long-term expats working as architects, designers or science teachers. On their free time, they take the handle bar to lead you to remote and unfrequented places they love via small paths and winding detours in this region they know like the palm of their hand. They are seasoned drivers and very agile in the road traffic of China and Morocco. Speaking French, English, Spanish, Arabic or Chinese, specialized in good restaurants or shopping addresses, they are happy to go the extra mile for you.


Slow and characterful, our vintage open-air fleet of sidecars allows you to connect easily with the people and the landscapes surrounding you.


Our first and endless love was the Chang Jiang 750 sidecar, one of the first mass-produced vehicles in China, and the Beijing Jeep 212, a trusty road companion. In contemporary China, they are considered dinosaurs, reminiscent of a troubled and eventful past, but for us they are part of China’s incredible story. On the other side of the world, in Marrakech, the police of the Medina was also using sidecars in the 1950’s. It was then a natural move to launch operations there with Ural sidecars.
