It was a wonderful, familiar and authentic excursion. The tour was well organized, informative and enriching. We experienced the east of Madeira from its most beautiful side. Our guide was very friendly, humorous and filled the tour with warmth. Apart from that, the tour was well organized, on time and there was enough time at all stations. We felt very well looked after and seen. It was a tour with each other and not as anonymous and crowded as with a tour bus, for example. We would recommend this tour to any vacationer who wants to experience a little more than just the sights. Thank you for the wonderful time. Gladly again! And good luck to all who are still allowed to enjoy.

I enjoyed it so much! We visited few very beautiful places, which I would never get to myself. It felt like a real adventure. Highly recommend to travel around island with 4*4 and not with a microbus tours

The guide was really informative and friendly and I got to see more than was promised on the other tours, for a really good price!

Great sightseeing experience in a small group of 8 people, great guide, only minus 2 hours in Santana, terrible village: D

Wonderful tour with very knowledgeable and attentive guide
