Brilliant afternoon drive.

Fantastic tour from our hotel in a Convertible Beetle with Miguel. A very friendly, relaxed and informative trip taking in a fishing village, cliff platform, plenty of stops for views and a few bars.
Great experience

Lovely half day drive with a friendly, knowledgeable driver. My husband has some mobility problems but this trip was ideal and the driver (I can’t remember his name) was very patient.
Comfortable & Wonderful Tour of Funchal, Madeira Island in Style with an Original VW Beetle Convertible!!

We truly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it! The only changes / improvements that we suggest are:

1. Find out the name of the ship, where they are docking and pick up Passengers as close as possible to the Pier.

2. Only stop for 1 Poncha Tasting (instead of 2)

3. Add enough time for a quick stop for Portuguese Tapas or a light Portuguese Lunch.

4. Add a quick stop to the Cristiano Ronaldo Museum (famous Professional Soccer Player born in Madeira).
A most enjoyable afternoon

I was collected from my hotel in Funchal on time by my companion for the afternoon, Rudolph, who runs this company. He has 2 classic VW cars and we went off in his immaculate 1970’s Beetle convertible. We were very fortunate as it was a beautiful afternoon and we were able to have the roof down for the whole time. Rudolpho is clearly a huge enthusiast and lovingly maintains the cars as well as being an interesting guide and good companion. He took me to various interesting places and viewpoints along the south coast as well as a couple of local bars to sample the local brews!!
I am a keen photographer so found lots of good subject matter. Rudolpho also made it clear that if you required something more bespoke he would be more than happy to work with you t
On an itinerary of your own choosing.
A thoroughly nice afternoon with a very nice person!
Would recommend!
