There were the 2 of us and 9 other fellow travellers enjoying the trip. The guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about Funchal that we did not already know even though we have visited several times before. Excellent snacks and food, couldn't fault it. Well worth booking. Thank you Linda and Phil

Superb day in the company of a very friendly guide Jacqueline. Gastronomic walk in 7 stages, all very well chosen for their setting and their products. Jacqueline is very outgoing and fluent in English and French. She recommended an address to Les terrasses in Calheta where we enjoyed a very good meal.

I can only recommend this tour. The very nice, competent and caring lady, unfortunately we did not remember the name, is from Funchal and gave us an incredible amount of tips. Above all, she told and explained a lot of interesting things to us with a lot of patience and in perfect English - and in between also in German. There were many local specialties to eat and drink in various localities. We have learned so much in a short period of time that we now know quite a bit about where to go for shopping, eating and drinking without assistance, which is especially important for a tourist new to Madeira. This tour is worth every € and we can only recommend it. Christine and Manfred
