We arranged a private tour, and Marco was most accommodating to give us a full day of tremendous sites in Western Madeira. He was a great driver, and full of excellent information about the history and culture of Madeira. The scenery and views in this part of Madeira should not be missed - they are spectacular! Highly recommend!

We had a lovely day with Richard, who was a very interesting and informative guide. Pick up at our apartment was a bonus and we also enjoyed the lunch we booked as part of the package. We’ve never been to Madeira before and this was just what we wanted - a nice introduction to the area. It was great that Richard also took photos, so for once we actually have pictures together! Great day - would recommend.
