8:30 AM
Meet a driver at your Funchal hotel for 8:30am departure, then travel to the northwest side of Madeira, where your first stop of the day is the town of São Vincente, a coastal village set in a picture-perfect valley.

You’ll get panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and sea as you travel, then continue to a traditional factory and saw mill to get a sense of the industries that once fueled Madeira’s island economy.

The route continues to a series of communities, including Ponta Delgada, Boa Ventura, Arco de Sāo, Jorge, and Cabanas, passing gardens, forest landscapes, and old fashioned architecture along the way. In the town of Santana, stop to see the typical thatched houses, then get a spectacular view of Ponta de São Lourenço, and explore Porta da Cruz and Caniçal.

Midway through the day, the tour will pause for lunch, and you’ll have the option to purchase a three-course meal for €12.00. When your route wraps back around the island to Funchal, this full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

The tour was as described and it was simply wonderful! We spent a full day with Spencer, our driver and guide as well, travelling from Funchal to Ponta Delgada through the mountains and than through some communities, including Boa Ventura, Arco de Sāo Jorge and Cabanas, passing gardens, forest landscapes and old fashioned architecture along the way. In the town of Santana, stop to see the typical thatched houses, then get a spectacular view of Ponta de São Lourenço and explore Porta da Cruz and Caniçal. During our trip we had also off-road routes so we could see better the forest landscapes. Spencer is a great guy, he is very knowleageable. He knows a lot of things about the island, its history, landscapes, flora and fauna and he speaks perfectly English, German and Portuguese. We stopped regularly at the interest points to see and to learn really interesting things about this beautiful island. Thank you!

Wir hatten einen tollen und erlebnisreichen Tag und haben viel über die Insel deren Bewohner gelernt. Abseits von Touristenrouten erhielten wir einen Einblick in das Leben Madeiras und konnten ein leckeres einheimisches Mittagessen genießen. Wir würden bei einem erneuten Besuch der Insel wieder Green Devil buchen!
