Amazing - go nowhere else!

This was a really EXCELLENT tour today thanks to gude Eduaret. It was 1000% perfect thanks to his extreme knowledge, kindness and fun at all times.

We were a very mixed group of 8 all from the UK but in 3 unknown groups from 7 to 60+.

Eduarte found the time to give us all a special experience, learning all our names in about 30 seconds and imparting knowledge on different levels according to our individual interests.

We all got on so well, made friends and became a very bonded group for a magic day of thrills and adventure and learning.

Some daredevil rides on the off road section was a great highlight especially being able to see parts of the island that otherwise would have been inaccessible to most tourists.

Cannot thank Eduarte enough. Botanical knowledge 1000% - Driving skills probably 5000% !!! ( He will know what I mean!!)

Beautiful and exciting tour!

Great guide, beautiful places, nice and cheap recommended lunch place and amazing experience to go off the road on this magical island. The guide was an experienced driver and was handling the car very good. It was a BUMPY road!
Amazing safari, exceptional, we can’t wait to come back and go again

We recommend this activity warmly. We rode with Hugo who is an experienced guide and infused spirit into the trip with great and fun facts about the island, its history and nature throughout the trip. We made generous stops in all the interest spots. Even though riding through super rough terrain we felt safe all the time. We got a sense of off-road adventure, reached some amazing sites with breathtaking views and ended the day with a swim in the volcanic pools. Overall it was a fairytale day. Must do when you visit Madeira
What a great tour!

Wouldn’t have missed this one. What a great tour with a super knowledgeable guide.(Can’t recall his name but he is a trained mountain guide and likes the Icelandic band Sigurròs). There was plenty of time to take photos. I was lucky with travel partners. A family from UK was in the car as well, and the woman was raised in Madeira so I also learned about how it was living in Madeira 40 years ago. The views are great. What a landscape! Wow!!!
Best way to spend the day in Madeira!

This experience was so jam packed and is such a brilliant way to see lots of amazing parts of the island in one day! We got to see multiple view points, the highest peak, swim in the worlds best rock pools, do some cliff jumping, sample local poncha en route and met some amazing locals and new friends along the way. I’d highly recommend this trip to anyone, diogo was professional and we had the best day! thank you!
