I booked several tours with Luis from My Guide Madeira during my vacation. Having started with an Island Tour to Pico Areeiro, the traditional houses in Santana, Cabo Girão and a nice fisher village, we hiked in San Lorenco and visited Funchal Old Town, the traditional market with fruits I did not know exist and did a wine tasting.

My highlight next to all the wonderful views was our morning hike to the top of Pico Ruivo in a radiating starlit sky and an incredible peaceful sunrise from the summit.

Luis is such a kind, caring and supportive guide who shares knowledge and wisdom of this beautiful island Madeira which is his home. I have learned and seen so much and felt very welcome in this lovely place.

Highly recommend the tours My Guide Madeira offers and especially the warmth, care and hospitality that the team imparts.

Thank you for making my holidays a beautiful memory.
Amazing guided tour by Luis on PR1

PR1 From Pico do Areeiro to Pico Ruivo (top of Madeira) and back again. 13km in total (2x6,5) we spend 6 hours and 45 min and we were never in a hurry. Luis was a really great guide: reliable, knowledgable, great english and no stress during the walk....we sat the pace.
This hike is basically a walk on mountain rigs with stunning scenery all the time. Lots of stairs so I guess it would ease the strain on the legs to bring walking-sticks (I didn't but I wish I had). Luis picked us up at the hotel and drove us back again, great treat. It was only me and my son (13 years) and it was the best day of our vacation. Luis also provided lights for the tunnels. We did the walk in the easter vacation with 15 degrees, perfect for a long hike like this.
All in all, I highly recommend Luis for a guided tour, I felt safe the whole day :-)

Just call (00351)960473142 and ask for a specific hike or ask for recommendations that fit your wishes and physical shape. And he will propose a hike and a day :-) It cannot be more easy than that :-) Go for it.
