Our guide, Gil, was the perfect tour guide. He made us all feel very comfortable being together. He created suspense with his little “surprises”. The trip was in a jeep through beautiful mountains and valleys and along the coast. It was time for swimming in the pools. I am so glad I saw this part of Madeira on this trip. It was such a fun day and should not be missed. Hopefully You too will have Gil for a tour guide!

We had a wonderful tour with our Guide, Rui. He was very knowledgable about Madeira and also made the trip super fun! We had a shared tour with another couple and it felt like we were having a private Tour. Could not recommend this tour high enough, it was the most fun thinv we did in Madeira.

Very pleasant sea trip on a very beautiful sunny day ☀️ we saw many dolphins unfortunately no whales or turtles... possibility if you want to take a dip ‍♀️ ✌️

The entire day was fabulous!!! Really enjoyed swimming in the volcanic pools!

We had a driver called Ruben. He made our trip to worth. Simply the best.
