Amazing Tour, fantastic company to deal with.

A great half day tour of the local area. Picked up from our hotel, with only an additional 2 people joining us it made it a very personal tour. At this point I must say that Edgar was a fantastic guide/driver, his local knowledge was second to none. The tour took us up the hills and into the mist at the top. On the way up you see fantastic views of Funchal town and the surrounding area. Without spoiling you with the details, there are a few surprises en-route. Edgar not has a huge amount of local knowledge, but also has a wicked sense of humour, great command of the English language. We stopped in a very small mountain village for a “REAL” home made Poncha, what a difference from the hotel version. The rum used was from the sugar cane and had a unique aroma. Nun’s valley was breathtaking, as was the view from Cabo Girao, a must see. The small fishing village of Camara de Lobos was a lovely place to stop with its fishing boats on their moorings in the small harbour surrounded by local restaurants and bars. The off road route through the hills and down to the coast was great fun, hang on tight. All in all, this was an extremely well planned tour with a fantastic guide in Edgar, I would recommend this tour, and the company to anyone, personal service from a local business with a genuine aim to please its customers. A huge thank you to Nico, the owner of the business, who went the extra mile to accommodate our timing on the island. We will be back to Madeira to see more of the island with Up Mountain Madeira.
Awesome half day tour!

We booked this half day trip and Ricardo was our guide in a 4x4 jeep. We were in a small group, meaning there was plenty of opportunities for photos. Ricardo was knowledgeable and a good driver. He also gave opportunities to ask questions. We had a great time. Thankyou
An excellent half-day tour.

We found Nico via another website, and luckily for us, he was still free 2 days before our arrival. We paid the same price for 2 of us that would have been paid by 4, and that's very understandable and reasonable. We were very happy with that, because we had the entire jeep to ourselves. He collected us from right outside the cruise terminal. Had Nico had another enquiry we would have been happy to share. Nico was excellent, very friendly and a very knowledgable local. His passion for his home is palpable. He's an excellent driver too, both on and off road. He was very open to our requests and would have done whatever we wanted during our time with him. It was a half day tour and we had an excellent time - so much so that we are back in September with our daughter and have already booked him again! The glass platform was probably the highlight of the tour, together with the visit to a local cafe for the local pochin! Well off the usual tourist route! He was also able to give us an excellent recommendation on where to go to get Madeira wine in Funchal. All in all, excellent and we're very grateful for a very enjoyable morning.
Great way to see a lot in just half a day

Our small group of six were provided with an open-top Jeep/Land Rover and a driver/guide that took us to Poncha, nearby mountains, wine tasting, and finally the breathtaking Cabo Girao. The guide was very knowledgeable and stopped often to talk about local vegetation. farming and industry. We were promised a "neck massage" white knuckle off-road experience, but it wasn't so bad that we were thrown about the Jeep. Seatbelts kept us in place. The tour came to an easy end with the opportunity to sample traditional Pacho made with lemon and honey. But I went with a 'bica' espresso coffee.
