Amazing experience! Really loved it! Especially our guide, Nelson, was the best, with so much detailed knowledge about the island, the history, every plant and fruit we passed by. He made sure we had an amazing time, crazy off-road, the island, the lunch place (12€ per Person, but BEST value for money), amazing viewpoints, and more. I highly recommend the tour with him! Simply AMAZING!

Going astray beyond the tourist routes, we got the chance to explore the northeast of this incredible island. Valdemar brought us closer to the history, flora and fauna of Madeira. He does this with a lot of passion, wit and charm. We felt we were in good hands during the 8 hours. We received a lot of tips and at all times Valdemar was responsive to our interests or needs. I am very happy to have booked this trip and can only recommend it wholeheartedly. My husband really enjoyed the off-road tour. But we also found the three short walks amazing and of course the incredible number of great views and impressions. Valdemar said at the beginning that we should take a lot of pictures because we cannot remember 70% of the impressions. He was right. I would like to give 10 stars. Very clear recommendation!
