A very pleasant trip into the heart of Madeira with our guide Miguel, who was very knowledgeable regarding the island and its history. We went to Curral das freiras and stopped at various locations on the way as well as a stop at Camara de Lobos where we tasted the delicious Nikita.
I recommend this trip especially to those who haven't hired a car as it is a fantastic way to get round the island. I also recommend the trips to the west and the east that we did with Hugo.
Well done Happy tours. Very enjoyable days out.
Great visit to the Nuns Valley

We had a lovely afternoon visiting the Nuns valley. The scenery was spectacular and we enjoyed stopping at various viewpoints along the way.
The wine tasting at the end of tour was nice but given the choice, we would have preferred to skip that in favour of spending more time in Curral das Freiras.

We used Madeira Happy Tours a few times to see the island and loved how at all of the stops we were left to explore freely and not herded around in a tour group.

I'd definitely recommend them!
Great Tour!

Booked 2 tours 'Nuns Valley' and 'Go South' and were not disappointed. Marco helped us book the tours and was a good laugh. Our tour guides were friendly and knowledgable - definitely recommend!
Good enough

It was a good tour, we loved the views. The tour guide was friendly and waited for all to finish taking photos at each stop. Felt a bit slow and could not near the tour guide at the back of the van. A microphone would have been helpful. A decent trip overall.
