This trip was amazing we got picked up from our hotel on time and made our way to the other guests. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the areas that we visited and had excellent driving skills as some of the roads we went down incredibly steep. When we went it was raining in the morning so it was foggy when we got to the top. Despite that we still managed to get some amazing photos and enjoyed it just as much. Luckily the weather cleared up by the time we got down to the pool so we could go in and get the full experience. To enter the Porto moniz pools it was only €3 and about €5/€6 to rent a locker. We stopped here for 2hrs and got some lunch. There were quite a few different restaurants around that you could choose from which was good. After this we made our way to the natural pools however we didn’t go in and only stopped for 15mins to take photos and stuff. Overall it was a great experience and would definitely recommend.

This tour was truly amazing! The views, the history and the tour guide Diogo was phenomenal. He took the time to show us all the different plants and fruits that grow in the wild which was amazing!
Amazing from start to finish

This was such a great trip, we really saw the majestic beauty of Madeira off the beaten track. Our tour guide was such great fun and he really took the time to make sure we had a great day. This included stopping to show us the variety of plants that grow wild on the island to ensuring that one of our party could swim in the sea when she was uncomfortable with getting in the water via the rocks. This has to be one of the best trips I've ever done on holiday. I'd highly recommend it.

A awesome informative tour by the best God I’ve ever had on a lot of excursions I have going on would greatly recommend if I could possibly give a eight star I would. We have the exact amount of time to explore everything that we need one it to see.
Can’t recommend this tour enough

We booked this tour last minute and I’m so glad we did! Our host, Nuno, was absolutely wonderful, extremely knowledgeable and kept stopping to pick us beautiful local fruits to try, or show us points of interest in more detail, rather than whizzing past.
Even though the clouds were low up in the mountains, everything was so beautiful and Nuno made the whole experience so enjoyable! He was so relaxed and we never felt rushed. The volcanic natural pools were lovely to swim in, and the forest felt like it really was enchanted!
