These are trips that I recommend to everyone! We were on two of them. East and west of this beautiful island.The guides were nice persons, with a sense of humor. They were very knowledgeable about the island, the places we visited, the plants and animals of Madeira. On the route we saw beautiful views, towns, flowers, fruit, and the everyday life of the people who live here. We were in places inaccessible to someone without a jeep. A large part of it was off-road :) Amazing adventure, I recommend it!
