East Madeira tour

Really nice experience. Got to see a lot of Madeira sights on the East coast, taste some madeiran rum, a lot of viewpoints for pictures.
Amazing!

My partner and I really enjoyed our tour of the East side of the island. It’s definitely worth doing when your visiting the island and it helps you get a better understanding and to see some of the amazing views of Madeira.

If you can, try to sit in the front and be co pilots because you get a much better view when being taken to the different places! I mainly wanted to go on the guided tour to see Santana and the famous houses but I was amazed everywhere we went. Especially the Levada walk, very easy and wow, what a surprise we got!

Our tour guide for the day Patricia, was very friendly and helpful. We got a group photo in front of one of the houses in Santana and it’s a nice keepsake from the trip.
Excellent

Did a full day East Tour of Maderia on 16/10/2021. Visited some amazing places and saw some amazing sights and views. Also went to a rum factory and sampled some rum. Did a little levada walk to the Balcoes in Santana which overlooks the Nuns Valley (missed this on my first visit to Maderia). The guide on the day was fantastic, he was very knowledable and passionate about Maderia and all the places we visited. Unfortunatley I never got his name but I know he used to be a waiter at the hole in one pub. He loves his job and made the tour even more interesting!
Good tour but cramped minibus

We enjoyed our tour with Carlos, however the mini bus was very cramped and very hot as the day went on. We have previously done the west tour with Ilha and would definitely go with them again. Carlos recommended a restaurant for lunch, the food was ok but service was so slow that we didn’t have much time to see anything in Santana.
