My husband and I booked the West Tour with this company. What a day we had. We stopped at several view points to take photos, all of which were absolutely stunning. Our driver took us to a bar where we watched how the cocktail Poncha we as made, even sampling as glass. Lots of local information was given by our driver which made this very interesting. A visit to natural pools and then the tour finished off with a Madeira wine tasting session. An excellent day out
A most memorable day out in comfort

What an incredible difference from sightseeing trips we have taken in large coaches.

This was a group of six in a comfortable minibus with the most informative, friendly and helpful guide anyone could wish for (obrigado Christian!).

We saw so much, learned so much, but most important we experienced a little of the real Madeira from a resident who was not only an incredibly skilled driver but the best guide too. He just knew when to stop, where, and for how long. Which little places gave incredible views of this beautiful island. And at the end of the long day he intuitively knew that the six of us would welcome the chance to go "off piste" when all of us voted to visit a traditional poncha bar rather than a final mountain top photo opportunity.

Nothing so genuine has ever happened on the big tour buses we have been on in other countries, and it made a memorable day something quite special.

This tour and transfer company really understands its market, and when we return again to Madeira, this will be part of our plans.
Great service!

Booked in the UK to transport to and from Madeira airport. The pick up was fine and we got to the hotel in good time. On our return, the driver was a little late in picking us up from the hotel so we contacted the number provided. The person I spoke to was extremely apologetic and called me back within minutes to provide an update that the driver was stuck in traffic. I was impressed with the service!
Value for money but could do with timing tweaks

Nuno the driver and guide was very competent and knowledgeable and even though some of the roads are tight we always felt safe.
The tour even though good value for money , for our taste , had too many stops at places that didn’t warrant the time given and the dinner stop at Porto Maniz could have longer as that was a highlight of the tour.
You certainly get a feel for this part of the island but as a tall person I struggled with the seat space but the vans were in good condition
Efficient transfers but taxi in appalling state.

There were no hitches with our pick ups on arrival or departure but Madeiralimo was not what I expected. I booked our transfers via British Airways and when I Googled "Madeiralimo" I expected a certain level of service. What I was greeted with at Funchal Airport was nothing like that portrayed by the firms website. The driver marched us across the road to what I can only described as a dilapidated yellow taxi and not the black town car expected. It literally had gaffer tape along the floor by the rear doors, the boot did not close properly, air con did not exist and on several occasions the driver answered his mobile while driving.

I can only assume we were booked on a "basic" taxi service but Madeiralimo needs to more transparent about this rather than hiding it away in its FAQ page that you can book an "upgrade" at a relatively 'low cost". Be very careful when booking with this company, especially if your booking has been via British Airways
