Paulo was fabulous!! We were able to see so many things on this beautiful island. He brought us to a wonderful restaurant with amazing views. The food was delicious and we were even able to do a wine tasting which was great. We had a wonderful day and would recommend this tour to anyone.

This was the best thing I did during my time in Madeira! I can't put into words how beautiful the island is from the perspective seen on this trip. Our tour guide franc was fantastic and full of knowledge he really went above and beyond! I would highly recommend this trip for anyone! We were a family of 3 and it suited us fine the kids both loved it there really is something for everyone. We saw beautiful valleys, mountains, we went on the sky walk and to the lava pools for a swim as well as having dinner in a restaurant at the highest point in Madeira it was special.
Fantastic way to experience Madeira in a day.

What a superb day out that was! Picked up at the stated time by Rui the driver. His English language was superb and what is more he was very knowledgable and was always informing us about the history, fauna and flora of the island. The interior of the island was a bit foggy at times so it is best to bring along warm clothing and coats for the odd occasion these are required. We visited several points of interest on the island from the laurel forests to the almost desert like east coast. There is a short but interesting levada walk that ended up at a small restaurant / trout fishery in the laurel forest. There you have the opportunity of espetada (beef on bay skewer) or catch your own trout. Your trout is then prepared by the restaurant. Wine (good), beer or soft drinks as well. Total trip time was 8 hours.

This is the fourth time that we have been to Madeira but the first time that we have done a 4x4 trip. It is fair to say that this trip was the best we have ever done and that is mainly due to Rui and his enthusiasm. Both ourselves and the other couple with us also that it was well worth the cost which considering what we experienced was very good value indeed. HIGHLY RECOMMENED.
Great Day Out

Diogo really made the day special for us and was an excellent guide. We drove up the mountains through the clouds and saw fantastic views then had a great off-road experience. He treated us to local drinks and snacks (highly recommended) then finally gave us a tour of the lower lying valleys. It really made our holiday!!
