Well worth it, especially for the views

Snr Barros gave us a fantastic tour. It was supposed to be in Portuguese only but there were two German speakers on the tour, so he did it in both languages. We saw breathtaking views and traditional houses, and we also got lots of interesting information about Madeira. I drank quite a lot of poncha, too!
Amazing experience

AMAZING MADEIRA! I am a fan of CrisR7, and arrived at the airport just the same day! They even picked me up there! Thank you!
Excellent way to view Eastern Madeira

We decided to have a private tour as our cruise ship time in port was limited. We were met at the port by Melem, who asked what our interests were and adapted our day accordingly. He never rushed us and allowed us plenty of time at the viewpoints to admire the fantastic vistas. We also were able to extend the Lavada walk while he drove to meet us. His local knowledge allowed us to see an inhabited triangular house in Santana. We opted to include lunch in Santana as part of our tour and this was an excellent 3 courses.
Great way to see north and south island trip

Myself and my partner went on this tour which was a great way to see the island. Great views, scenery and lots of interesting insights and knowledge was shared about the local areas, people, communities, plants and history.

If your looking for a relaxing sightseeing venture to see north and south of Madeira then this is for you.

You can opt for having lunch in santana which is worth it also.

Enjoy and thanks to the tour guide that took us on the 4th of January.
Great experience! Would really recommend!

I thought this trip was really great and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The reason for 4 stars and not five is because I thought the trip to Santana to see the Madeira houses was not really worth it. It was a very touristy place and we spent a big chunk of the day travelling there and being there. However, I do believe most tours go there as it is a touristy place. The rest of the trip was really gorgeous and I liked how in one trip I saw cliffs, village views, a levada, and mountains. It’s like I’ve seen the best of Madeira all in one day! And our tour guide was really great! Funny and made the trip really interesting!
