Awesome day

The tour was amazing, we were very lucky to have Rui with us as a guide for the second time in our Madeira adventure. Rui is an excellent guide, knowledgeable and kind. His enthusiasm toward the beautiful island of Madeira is inspiring. He helped our ‘city kids’ feels apart of nature! It was awesome!

We were very lucky with this tour, as we were the only two on this particular trip. Our driver Lorenzo was very friendly and knowledgable, he knew so much about the island we hadn't read or heard anywhere else. The Valley of the Nuns was absolutely amazing, we can definitely recommend the chestnuts! We were very lucky with the weather going up to Pico de Arieiro, as we came above the clouds in to the sunshine. The views are spectacular and Lorenzo gave us lots of time to wander around and enjoy the views. We also visited Santa Serra to see the park, went off road for a quick explore of the laurel woods, and got to stand up in the back enjoying the view as we came down the narrow little roads towards Santa Cruz. I can definitely recommend this tour - I'll be doing it again next time I visit Madeira!

Good half day trip that showed a lot of Madeira! The guide was not the best we had. He sat quietly in the car without telling so much information during the road, otherwise an interesting trip.

Le relief escarpé a été particulièrement plaisant à découvrir en compagnie de notre chauffeur-guide (Luis), chaleureux et très sympathique.
