Thanks again to Lido Tours for a very pleasant tour. Driver/guide Nuno very nice and knowledgeable again. Looking forward to the Northern Wonders
Don't miss the opportunity to see this part of Madeira

This part of the island has so few tours, which is a shame, as it is the warmest part of the island and some beautiful villages and photo opportunities.

Our lovely guide did an amazing job translating into English, French and Italian as well as Portuguese. Very considerate, as I was travelling alone, that I sat at the front of the vehicle.

Vehicle was very comfortable and all in all a lovely day.
Good Tour for a day in Madeira

Good tour- decently paced, knowledgeable guide, safe car and safe driving. We got to see several stops along the way.
In spite of the weather......

Diogo was an excellent driver and guide. We felt safe with him on some difficult roads. He was able to change between French and English with ease and humour! He knew the spots to stop and view. The southern corner of the island is often overlooked but it has some fantastic spots.we took advantage of the restaurant lunch and although the place didn't look much the food was excellent and very popular.
Not enough time in Calheta.

Went with lido tours on this south coast tour as we had done most of the others with them other years. A bit disappointed really as we had an hour and half in a remote village restaurant with nothing to do do as no other shops or anything to see so we didn’t want a full meal either so time dragged other stops were ok but the best stop Calheta we only got half an hour which was a shame as it was a lovely place and we would have liked longer. Our guide Nuno was great and knowledgeable. But the separate seats on the mini bus were awful Iv got bad knees and I was crunched up so uncomfortable also no armrests whic was unusual on a mini bus.
