What people are saying about Estreito de Câmara de Lobos

Out of all the tours that I have been on in Madeira, this is hands down the best tour - best scenic views with a one hour stop to swim at Porto Moniz and off road experience is second to none! Our guide Diogo (hope I spelt it right!) was really good fun and ensured everyone was well taken care of! Definitely will recommend this to anyone coming to Madeira for the first time!

Very good guide, he was very precise with timing so that we could visit all things planned. Madeira roads are very curvy, but the guide is a confident and careful driver. It has started to rain in the Fanal forest, we didn’t bring our jacket, the guide Sergio offered us a spare one so that we could take some pictures in spite of the rain. Thank you for the trip, Sergio!

This tour has everything and more!! Each stop is amazing and so varied. Our tour guide, Diogo C, was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.
