What people are saying about Ponta Do Sol

This tour is great to get to know the west of the island a little more and to explore something yourself. The guide Diogo is very nice and always gives interesting information in between! The long break at Porto Moniz was perfect because you had so much time to go swimming in the volcanic pool. I can only recommend :)

This tour was an amaizing - mainly thanks to our guide Sergio. He was precisely, help full, willing to answer on each question and he has a very sense for fun :) We saw a lot for relatively short time - breathtaking views, villages and nature. I highly recommended.

It was a really fun and comfortable trip. Great tour guide. We were unlucky about the weather, but they quickly adapted the itinerary and still provided us with an amazing experience.

Really enjoyed this trip, especially Porto Moniz where we stopped for 2 hours and had the opportunity to visit Natural Swimming Pools

The tour is highly recommended! Our tour guide was very personable and told us a lot about the island of Madeira.
