Reviews

A good view of Maderia
CarolineAnne_J, 27-09-2022
Excellent tour. Got a good taster of the areas visited. Comfortable vehicle, a smallish group. Plenty of time at each stop.
Magestic views in the West

Fantastic views from Cabo Girao. Lots of opportunities for photos and our driver was fantastic. He gave lots of interesting information about every place we went.
The best of the best

We were two friends and there was only one other girl joining us. We enjoyed the beautiful views, great company and our very kind, experienced driver/guide (thank you, Victor!). It felt like a private VIP tour! Highly recommended!
Great day trip

Great tour well worth doing, could just have had a microphone in the bus as it was hard to hear the driver at times.
Good if you speak Portuguese, not so great if you don't

Our tour was fairly priced compared to others we had seen. Our major issue was that our group of 16 had 4 English speakers and 12 Portuguese speakers meaning that the guide would speak for 5/10 minutes in Portuguese and then 1/2 minutes in English. We felt we missed out on a lot of information about some of the places we visited and didn't have our questions answered. The tour itself was interesting but we did an East island tour with the same company the day before which I would recommend more than the west.
