East tour and half day tour
590paulineb, 18-10-2019
Booked via what’s app so easy and arrangements to pick up tickets at hotel as well as paying. The East tour we were picked up as a small group at the hotel and had a knowledgeable guide who spoke several languages. Almthough lunch was not included a deal with as made at the hotel in Santana for those that wanted it. The tour was great enjoyed it better than the west tour was great that all the fruits were pointed out as we drove around and the views were stunning. The second trip through no fault of the tour operator was a nightmare as the wrong company (there fault) picked us up in error. However apologies were received and offers of another more expensive trip was offered to us even though not our tour operators error. They responded and even phoned us to check we were ok couldn’t fault their attention in difficult circumstances quite happy to send their details to work colleagues visiting later this year.
Très belle journée dans l’Est avec vues panoramiques

Très belle journée dans l’Est de l’île. Très beaux arrêts avec vues panoramiques, temps de pause pour manger à Santana et découvrir ses petites maisons typiques. Le tour nous a autant plu que celui vers l’Ouest. Le chauffeur était très gentil et ses explications en français étaient toujours intéressantes. Si vous combinez les tours Ouest + Est avec la demi-journée à la vallée des Nonnes, vous avez un très bel aperçu de toute l’île. Je vous recommande Feeling Madeira, très bonne compagnie et explications en français pour les francophones.
