Best day in my life so far
Liselotte1gruen991, 17-07-2022
I had the honour to join a tour with Dinarte. This guy is a present - not only for the company. He gave me not only the best experience of Madeira, but also one of the best days in my life. Thank you - also to his colleague Nuno! It was a pleasure to meet you! Doing a tour with this comapny is the best you can do when you are at Madeira.
We are in Awe! Trip of a lifetime

Our guide was so much fun and the trip was amazing. The island is absolutely gorgeous and driving in an open top off road jeep makes it even more visual and fun. We thought of renting a car but there is no way we would know where to go and even have the car and the skills to go off the beaten path. Take the lunch option, it’s delicious with amazing views.
Excellent experience!

I really enjoyed our tour with Greg. We got to see places we would have not seen, since trip was with 4x4. Incredible experience, worth every penny, I'd love to do it again! 5 stars for you guys! And thanks to Greg - he makes amazing & very entertaining tour guide :)
Amazing Northwest Tour with Nuno
Justin R, 07-07-2019
This was an incredible trip with a truly incredible tour guide - Nuno. He is a true ambassador of the island and he made our tour truly incredible. We learned more, saw more, and experienced more in one day with Nuno than we did in a week on Madeira on our own. If we visit Madeira again, it will be because of Nuno. If we tour again with Green Devil, we will only go on a tour that he is guiding. Thank you, Nuno, for showing us how truly beautiful your island of paradise is.
Maravilhoso dia em excelente companhia

Tive a oportunidade de visitar alguns dos locais mais belos, tradicionais, naturais e “out of the track” da ilha da Madeira, na companhia do Juan, um guia bem informado, simpático e divertido. A tour é belíssima, emocionante, o jipe proporciona fazer caminhos exclusivos na Natureza. Aconselho o almoço típico que custa apenas 12€ mas traz todas as iguarias típicas em excelente qualidade e quantidade.
