It was a great tour and day. We saw almost all the highlights of the island. Dinarte our guide was very friendly and has a very positive energy. You can see he loves the island and can tell you a lot about it. Highly recommended! We really enjoyed.
Fantastic day out

As a family of five, we had a fabulous day out with our guide Jose. He picked us up from our hotel and having realised that my husband was a keen bird watcher, focussed our private tour on the mountains and forests. My (adult) children had a great time on the several off road portions of the trip - standing in the back of the Jeep as we bumped our way over some quite tricky terrain.
Jose’s driving was excellent and he was very informative about the island and its history.
Lunch was at a little restaurant above Santana and was very good value and thoroughly enjoyable.
This was a great way to see the island and a real highlight of our holiday. Having done the east side of Madeira, if we had had more time, we would have definitely booked a second tour to visit the west.
The BEST day!

From the moment Val arrived to puck us up we knew we were going to have a fab day. Friendly, knowledgeable and willing to have a laugh with us he took us to amazing places going off the main roads so we could see places impossible without 4 x 4. We booked the Madeira Peaks tour and were in awe of the scenery and views. At lunchtime we went with Val's recommendation and ate great food in a lovely restaurant for only €12 each including a drink.
Will definitely book with Green Devil again and if you're in Madeira don't miss this incredible day, you won't regret it!
Tolle Tour mit einigen Highlights

Die Tour in den Osten der Insel musste wetterbedingt angepasst werden. Da es nachts zuvor heftige Regenschauer und starken Wind gab, konnten wir nicht offroad fahren. Anstatt die Tour abzusagen, hat sich der Tourguide Gedanken gemacht und die Tour angepasst, sodass wir dennoch einen tollen und wirklich schönen Tagesauflug hatten. Die Zeit verging wie im Flug, wir haben viel gesehen und einiges dazu gelernt.
Tolle Tour, ein Muss für jeden Besucher von Madeira

East - Madeira Peaks, das war unsere Tour mit Nuno, einem Fahrer mit vielseitigem Wissen über Land und Leute und die Fauna. Sehr vorsichtiger Fahrer und mit sehr guten Kenntnissen der nicht immer einfachen Wege.
Die Tour ist ein Muss und als Ergänzung zur anderen Tagestour das ideale Mittel um die Insel besser kennenzulernen. Die Fahrt führt über Nebenstrassen, und Off-Road-Strecken zu vielen Höhepunkten. Ein tolles Erlebnis, wenn auch etwas anstrengend.
Gutes, sehr preiswertes Mittagessen.
Es hat alles gestimmt. Wenn Sie die Möglichkeit haben und es gemütlich - soweit überhaupt möglich - lieben, fahren Sie mit Nuno.
