Private island tour with Louis

I made this tour with two friends and we simply loved it! Our driver was friendly and very flexible with us. He picked us up and took us to amazing places like Pico do Areeiro where the views were stunning. And we also loved the 1:30h stop in Porto Moniz where we could swim in the lava pools. Was a great day and we got to know a lot from the island. Thanks to Luís and hope to see you again in a next time we come to Madeira.

Very good organized and friendly accompanied tour offering a perfect overview of all the must see sites and most beautiful places of the adorable island. Couldn‘t choose better to make this roundabout! Luis was very nice and a well-informed guide! If you are looking for a professional but casual, pleasant and interesting island tour, I can recommend to book this one.
Great way to get to know Madeira

Luis picked us up at our Airbnb right on time and we got a great tour of the main attractions on the island - Cabo Girao, Camara de Lobos, Pico do Arieiro, Santana, Seixal, Ponto Moniz, and probably some others I'm forgetting. It was the first tour we did and I'm glad we did it at the start because we were able to discuss the attractions with the locals when we went to dinners, bars, etc. Luis also let us stop ftor authentic poncha (rum-based drink from Madeira) and at a fruit stand on the highway that had fantastic produce at a very reasonable price (two bunches of grapes, two peaches, and two plums for 1.80 euro, plus a free sample of an exotic local fruit). The only downside was the lunch, which was a piece of cheese and deli meat between two slices of white bread. But it wasn't a gastro tour so I won't ding him for that...
Amazing experience during hiking and walking

It was a coincidence to discover Luís. We wanted to use private guide to avoid large groups. We stayed at Boaventura, so we wanted somebody close to us. This is how we discovered My Guide Madeira website and decided to use them. We briefed Luís what we want to do, how and agreed the itinerary and price. Everything was done according to our agreement. Luís exceeded our expectations. He takes care for details and perfect timing. He is very good travel mate. His picnic (as a part of the trip) was great and absolutely sufficient. He showed us many other things and we really enjoyed all the time we spent in Madeira with Luís. The best was hiking from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo (very nice adventure and weather) and Ponta de São Lourenço. Also levadas walking were amazing and full of nice nature: Levada do Rei, Balcões, Levada 25 Fontes + Risco waterfall, Levada Caldeirao Verde, Levada Bica da Cana. We visited Funchal, Cabo Girão viewpoint, Pico dos Barcelos viewpoint, Eira do Serrado viewpoint, Câmara de Lobos.
Luís cares very much about your safety. It's very important to use proper dress and walking shoes. Madeira is very changeable, specially weather, but this is what makes Madeira magnificent. Camera is very important thing to have if you want to make nice memory.
A terrific day on the island

We had a really great day with Luis, and feel we saw the various sites and treasures of Madeira. For about the same price as our ship’s tour, we were able to go by private car, and spend as much or as little time at the sites as we wanted. (We weren’t stuck at tacky souvenir shops just so others could use a toilet). Luis is an excellent guide and an interesting person to spend a day with. We loved having a picnic lunch at the lava pools! Would highly recommend this local company.
