Fantastic DayTrip!

We had a wonderful day with our guide and very capable driver, Antonio. He was full of information about flowers and plants and of the areas we visited on our 4X4 Land Rover trip. Antonio also booked us a table for our lunch at Quinta do Furao in Santana. That was a lovely stop with good food and a great view—very good choice to make the day even more special. He picked us up on time and returned us to our door. It was a terrific day and we are so happy we booked this trip.
Thanks Antonio!
Unforgettable Madeira experience

As much as good as you can do it during a single day! Well designed day tour with a lively and lovely local guide/driver, thanks Justin! We enjoyed every minute and hope to do the western tour when we hopefully return soon
A great way to discover the island.

We did two 4x4 jeep tours with Adventureland during our holiday: West and East. Both times there were just 4 passengers in the Landrover Discovery plus our driverJesse. We loved both tours and enjoyed discovering the beautiful diversity the island has to offer and seeing places which would be inaccessible in a hire car. Jesse was an excellent and skillful driver who navigated every type of road with confidence and at a sensible pace. He was also a very pleasant and convivial guide who struck the right balance between providing interesting information about the surroundings and quiet times to just let the passengers enjoy the scenery. On both tours we opted for the 15€ lunch which was very tasty and great value for money: three courses plus wine. I would absolutely recommend this company and hope to use them again in the future.

Excellent tour

We took the Adventureland East tour and were not disappointed. Our driver and guide Edi was excellent - his English and knowledge was first class and he briefed us clearly with a map at the start of day exactly where we would go. Lunch in Santana was very reasonably priced (we had the local scabbard fish) and overall it was an excellent day out.
