Best tour I have ever been on

One of the best tours I have ever been on. Incredible day with so many things to see and exploring nature off the beaten track. Thank you for such a memorable day and couldn’t recommend this enough to anyone who wants to explore the island! Amy

Great Way to Spend a Day in Madeira
David_C
, Apr 2022
Spencer our guide & driver had an encyclopaedic knowledge of Madeira, it’s flora, fauna, food, local politics, Ronaldo lore and best locations for photographic opportunities. He made every effort to get the most out of the day, for example deciding not to drive to Pico Ruivo as it was cloudy with no view. We instead went to Ponta de São Lourenço, a much better use of the time in light of the prevailing weather. The visit to the rum factory was not overlong, we got to sample 3 types and there was no pressure to purchase. As a solo traveller it was great to travel with others sharing the experience and chatting along the way. Not having to drive certainly makes for a more relaxed experience. Highly Recommend

A brilliant day out
Anonymous

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide showed us so many little things we wouldn't have spotted by ourselves (for example the symbols on the house roofs). It was a very full day, I think we left the hotel around 8.30 and got back around 6, so much was packed into it. Although it involved some off-roading, it wasn't wild or dangerous, and followed defined tracks through the hills. The food was gorgeous, the guide worked very hard to ensure we all had a good time, and we really appreciated his effort and attention. Thoroughly recommended!

I found it in parts boring. Also I was not happy that we took a detour for one of the group, without consulting us, to a supermarket so she could buy some cheap wine. We sat outside for at least 15mins. He should have dropped us off and the other couple first but we were last

Do it! and then Do it Again! This tour had everything you needed for the day, some adventure as you drive through those winding roads with death drops, food, as you stop for a great lunch and snacks, drinks at the rum factory, sun as you are in an open top SUV and personal touch, as we were afford the opportunity to go inside someone's Santanas house. The gentle man still lived in the house with his father, and was there to welcome us.

I can't rate this highly enough, it is a great way to see a lot of things in one day with the bonus of hotel pick up and drop off and it being an off road experience! But the biggest plus I think are the drivers, my driver Spencer was so informative, helpful and always up for laugh it really made the day even more entertaining! He pulled over a few times to show us different plants etc as really knew all the best spots to take photographs but also was always happy to stop when asked. Definitely by favourite day I spent on the island :

Fernando our driver arrived on time and proved to be very informative and friendly. We joined another couple of groups and have to say considering the terrain we were very grateful that we weren't crammed into a jeep. We were in a 7 seater 4x4 - there were 5 of us and we had a roll back roof so we were still able to appreciate our surroundings. Very bumpy exciting drive! Unfortunately I can't comment on the meal as one of our party became ill and we had to go back to the hotel. Fernando was extremely sympathetic and took us back, even offering 20 off another trip as we didn't complete this one. Unfortunately we didn't fit in another trip but wouldn't hesitate to book with this company again.

We were picked up by Luis at 0830 on Saturday 12 Nov as scheduled in the comfortable 4x4. Our trip was to be to Machico where we stopped for photographs and coffee. From here we followed an old mountain route set up by community farmers to get from the south to the north of the island going to Porto da Cruz and a visit to the rum factory and Casa du Rum. On to Santana to see the quaint old thatched houses where we visited one. Time for lunch at Cantinho da Serra and a superb old Madeiran traditional 3 course meal with wine for only 12 Eu each. Returning via Faial, Ribeiro Frio fish farm and then up to Pico do Areeiro 1818 m high, the highest point on the island. We then headed back down to Funchal arriving at 1630, an excellent day out. Throughout the day Luis gave us a lot of interesting information about the island and often stopped to show us various plants and fruits. There were several beautiful scenic stops for photographs as well. The narrow steep roads and tracks realised the necessity of a 4x4 and Luis handled the vehicle well as we were never concerned about his ability. Luis spoke English very well, was always polite and ready to answer our questions, he also took some photographs with his mobile and promised to email them to us. A trip I would not hesitate to recommend.

Vraiment à faire ! Guide passionné qui parle français (Nono) il a pris le temps de nous cueillir des fruits, des plantes ou des herbes aromatiques ! Très à l’écoute il nous a conseillé pour le reste de nos vacances ! Les paysages sont majestueux ! Les chemins 4x4 sont supers ! Dégustation de Rhum et de Poncha, pour manger le restaurant local est super (boisson + Entrée/Plat/Dessert + Café seulement 12€/pers) Bref une superbe journée !
