Our English-speaking tour guide (Joao Garces) picked us up at the hotel on time and discussed the course of the tour, planned stops, etc. with us before we started. During the trip he brought us closer to the most diverse sights and above all the enormous diversity of the fauna. He also made a few detours to show us particularly beautiful viewpoints or natural spectacles. The stops made were always sufficient to stretch your legs a bit. For lunch Joao went with us to a good, but by no means expensive restaurant to show us where we followed his recommendation and ordered a menu for € 17.50 each, which included a starter, fresh fish, dessert and drinks. The highlight of this tour were the houses in Santana, typical of old Madeira, but also Porto da Cruz, Faial and the north coast to Sao Vicente were extremely impressive.

Pleasant tour, not difficult. A good tour to get to know the levadas. The guide was very nice and told us a lot of interesting things about the levadas, but also about Madeira in general.

Friendly pick up from hotel, great instructors on the surf lesson, both friendly and very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a surf activity in Madeira

Amazing! Loved every second of it! Monica and the surf instructors were so kind and helpful. Could’t get enough of it! Would highly recommend to anyone in Maderia

We enjoyed our trip to the botanical gardens and Monte Palace gardens. So glad we chose a private tour as our guide was very informative.
