2. Funchal: Amazing Craters of Fire 4x4 Tour

Enjoy the warmest place of Madeira and what is has to offer. The southwest is the point less visited by foreigners, making all the viewpoints unique. You can admire the lovely scenery freely there without the crowds of tourists around spoiling it. You'll start at Campanário, with tiny 2-way roads making for great adventures. Once at Ponta do Sol, you will take an off-road track up to the plateau which sits at 1,500 meters. This track will see you passing by green mountains, all of which are covered with forests. Following that, stop at Prazeres where you have the option to taste home-made dishes which pack plenty of flavor. You'll then make your way down to the villages near the coastline, where charismatic fishing villages create a contrast with the colors of the sky and mountains. You will see old terraces where people still work with their hands in the production of bananas, sugar cane, and subtropical fruits.

The jeep tour was a great experience for us in Madeira. I would advise everyone to take part - the drive through the mountains is also unforgettable. Enough stops to explore the island. A dedicated and enthusiastic driver and tour guide Victor was an added guarantee for a lovely day. The food in Porto Moniz was super tasty. That's why we directly ordered the east tour for 4 days.

Fantastic day with Victor as our guide! He really knew his stuff and looked like he was having lots of fun. visited all the places we were meant to with plenty stop offs and time to explore. we also had a fantastic lunch in Porto Moniz which was arranged by Victor. Excellent day - highly recommended

It was so much fun! We saw a lot of the island and the food was super authentic and pretty good. Our guide was super fun and we felt absolutely safe all the time. He was also flexible enough to drive us somewhere else, as we've been to the original destination already. Would highly recommend!

We had a brilliant driver/tour guide. Funny, friendly, and a very good driver. The tour had various stops to take pictures and admire the island. We went off-road and drove up a mountain in a comfortable Land Rover Defender.

It was a great tour, the driver was super nice - everything was fine. I can only recommend that
