4x4 Tours discovering the North of Madeira

I stayed in February for a week in Madeira. During this week the weather was unfortunately not so ideal. I booked two different tours with Green Devil Safari that offer different half days and full day tours. I booked the Enchanted Terraces as well as the Scents & Flavours tour. On both tours Nelson was our driver and guide. It was fun as he is a fun person that likes to joke and knows his island by heart. He is knowledgeable in the nature and landscape and likes to share his knowledge. The tour is definitely to recommend. Despite the weather, I spent two great days getting to know the island a bit. Thanks to Nelson.
Great Tour

I went with my mom. It was a fantastic tour! We got to see a lot in a day. My friends were blown away by all the amazing things I got to see. It was such an adventure. I had Greg as my guide and he was fantastic. Really knew a lot about the history, the birds, etc. He was also very accommodating and super patient. Him and his wife are hilarious together. Overall, we saw a lot of Madeira and I was mesmerized by the beauty of it all. It was totally worth the money - if anything, this was the highlight of my trip.

I’m also happy they are supporting local businesses and not taking commission from the businesses they take us to - so you know the food, drinks, whatever it is, are all amazing!

One thing I do want to mention, part of the ride is safari and so expect a bumpy ride. I was fine with it but I could see how it could cause some sickness. So heads up.

The green devil brought us on places we could not reach ourselfes. With humor hospitality and enthousasm the driver Nelson showed us many flowers and beauifull places far from the tourist attractions. He showed us the real nature of madeira. The green devil contributed to make our holiday a succes. Obrigada Nelson.
Great experience

We had a whole day tour, just the 2 of us. We learned a bit more about Madeira as this wasn’t our first time. Our guide showed us places in addition that were not tourist oriented. We explored the island from another perspective thanks to our guide who was really polite and welcoming. Thank you for a great day!
Interesting tours, not always good guides

We did 2 different tours with this company. The first one was the Enchanted terraces and we were lucky enough to have Val as our guide. Knowledgeable, funny, having a good pace throughout the trip. The off-road part was so much fun!
The second tour was the northeast - scents and flavours - tour and we were not that lucky. We had booked an English speaking tour but our guide was a guy from Venezuela (can't remember his name) who hardly spoke basic English. He was a good driver but it was very hard to understand him, he didn't give us any valuable information regarding the visited places and the island in general. He also wasn't able to answer basic questions that we asked him.
