It was really great tour led by most professional guide I have ever had - Nuno. We saw so many places, got so much information and had a fun at the same time. We really enjoyed it and I can only recommend both the company and Nuno as your guide.
Great way to see more of Madeira
Dorothy M, 21-01-2020
Had a super day seeing the stunning coast, villages, vineyards, coves and forests on the east coast. We had a sunny day and therefore fantastic views of Madeira’s 3 highest peaks and the extra enjoyment of having the roof off the vehicle. There was a bit of off road driving through the forest which was very interesting but the majority of the tour is on the road. We had a lovely traditional meal at a local restaurant. Hugo our driver was extremely knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. All in all a very enjoyable trip.
