Valley of the Nuns

Fantastic & fun
Fiona F, 12-03-2022
We were a group of 12 and did 4 tours (2 full day, 2 half day) with Green Devils. Our guides (Jose & Nuno) we’re great, lots of info, lots of fun - forests, mountains, volcanoes, up in the clouds, down by the sea, we did it all. Lots of off road tracks (some a bit scary
Truly excellent and fun experience

First thing to note, if you have Nelson, you are in for a great experience!! Nelson arrived to pick us up bang on time. We visited a number of sites including valley of the nuns, Pico do Arieiro plus others. Nelson was very knowledgeable about Madeira and was full of facts all the way round. Unfortunately Pico do Arieiro was covered in cloud, but we were prepared for that with rain coats. Highlight would have been the view but the view above the valley of the nuns stole the show in terms of views. But apart from the views, Nelson was great and kept us laughing most of the way round!! If you could get in the back of the vehicle, I would recommend here for a bit of extra room. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great, fun jeep tour

Great, fun tour of some of the island of Maderia. Nun's Valley is worth seeing and you get taken to the 3rd highest mountain peak
There is some fun off road, where you can stand up in the back of the jeep.
Nelson was an informative and friendly guide.
Check timings

Was booked for 830 and received many messages and reminders .
Was greeted with a very rude driver calling us saying we had booked for 8am .
We actually ready and met him then at 815 but felt uncomfortable initially.
Trip was great though

Overall it was quite a good tour, unfortunately Juan was running late (he did inform us via email of this), but it seemed the tour was then rushed, missed out wicker basket viewing, journeys seemed erratic and rushing and speeding to next stop each time. We were sat in the back, so had a difficult view of surrounding scenery as roof was in eyeline, felt like we were in the cheap seal, while other 4 passengers paid the same and sat in comfort.
