10/10 excursion, so much fun, knowledge guide Manuel! East Coast full day tour
Stephanie R, 13-09-2022
AMAZING EXCURSION!!! Manuel our guide was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable, fun and took the time to show us all the little important things the East Coast can offer.
Standing up in the jeep overlooking the clouds was the highlight of the trip.
It was amazing to visit all the local low-key spots that was not packed with tourists. We had the best Poncha on our trip.
100% should do if visiting the beautiful island of Madeira
10/10 would recommend!
Miguel is an amazing tourguide. We couldn’t have asked for a better one. He knows a lot about the island and shares the knowledge in a compelling way, while being able to not overload you with information. We also loved the flexibility of the tour and it’s up to the group how much time you want at each spot. Would also definitely recommend including the 14 euro lunch. We were scared that it would be a cheap “local” bad lunch like most tours, but it was actually worth way more than the 14 euro and at a lovely modern location. 10/10 would recommend!
Amazing tour with very friendly tour guide Miguel. Definitely recommend the off road tour with him and the home made liquor bar Rochao
Miguel is a perfect guide, very nice and funny. We discovered a lot with him, do not hesitate. The West coast won’t have anymore secrets for you.
Super packed day out!
What a packed day! Our guide, John, was clearly passionate about showing people the island - he switched between languages with ease and knew so much. We loved the mountains and the pools at Moniz - a great day out. Top tip - take the middle seats if you are offered them!!
