Fabulous day if a little wet. Our guide was great fun , fluent English and took us to some great places even if the weather meant we could hardly see them. Buggy easy to drive and a great way to see Madeira. Lovely little coffee stop on the way .Well worth the money and would certainly do it again .

A fantastic experience. So fun to ride along the forest-like track and reach the high peaks to be welcomed with some breathtaking views of the island. Our guide was an absolute legend, so easy to talk to and so attentive - he always made sure we were okay and happy to progress. A must do when you're visiting Madeira.

Great morning with Roberto. he was patient and took time to explain how to operate the buggy and when to change gears/ 4-wheel drive according to terrain. It did rain but it was not as bad as we thought it would be and the waterproof overalls were fine. He took us to Cabo Girao at the end of the session... when all the tourist buses had been and gone. Great fun, even for an old bloke like me.
