We really liked the tour and the length of time was just right. A special thanks to our guide Juan!!! He kept going into "HIS GARDEN" to introduce us to herbs from his island. Can only be recommended as a half-day tour!

Great tour into village where W. Churchill spent holiday in 1950, visited Cabo Girão, offroad track, nice viewpoints and experienced local drinks of Poncha at local bar plus Madeira wine.

Booking is convenient and easy. The service is great (from and to the hotel) We met nice people and had a lot of fun.
