Une super excursion et un guide très gentil et drôle. Ce fut une journée très agréable, on ne voit pas le temps passer et le paysage est magnifique. Le guide prends le temps d'expliquer les choses en anglais et en français. Je recommande à fond cette activité qui pour 25 euros est tout simplement donnée.

Fabulous tour with Manuel. Very knowledgeable and informative about all the areas he took us to. We visited the sky walk (our main request), Churchill’s Bay, and most of the main East Island sights. Definitely a recommended way to see the island in a stress free way. Tour can be catered to your specifics needs. A comfortable vehicle, safe driving and easy booking (we sorted it all via email) Very happy with our day and we would used Madeira Tours again. Thank you

A number of spectacular vistas and interesting sites on our East tour, including the views from the top of the 1800m mountain in Faial and quaint Santana. Carlos was a helpful guide, and arranged a really reasonable prix fix lunch at a local restaurant. Local beef cooked on a skewer was a lunch highlight. Ideal for people who want an overview of the east side of the beautiful island of Madeira. Plenty of natural beauty..

The trip was so nice! We had lovely day, we had the opportunity to explore Madeira- really amazing island. A big thanks to our guide Carlos. He was very kind, informative and gave us time to have a look on every point where we were stopping. We visited amazing places ,really incredible nature! Definitely it's worth it to go on that trip! Highly recommended!

I enjoy during mountain hike. We have to climb a lot of stairs to get to the top of the mountain, that is very heavy to do but it is worth doing it. On the way you can see how beautiful the nature is, a lots of trees, beautiful flowers. Excellent panorama up there. I love it!...!

Had a fantastic day. Stopped at some beautiful little villages. Went up into the mountains and saw some amazing sights. It was well worth it. Our driver was so knowledgable. Would so do it all over again on our next visit.

My husband and I did a private shore excursion that included sightseeing, toboggan ride, visiting the peaks and small fishing village, where we had a great lunch. Great price, great driver and great experience.

Robin D. - 03-03-2020

Very much enjoyed our day trip with Carlos. Extremely comfortable Mercedes minivan and a variety of interesting stops during the day. Very good value trip and would recommend the company and the excursion.

We experienced very diiferent things in a few hours time. The trip to Pico do Arieiro gave marvellous views and a rapidly changing weather. The Levada walk is very suitable for somebody who wants to get the experience but not spend a long time on a difficult track.

Dear Sirs, Let me express very cincere gratitude to our driver / guide Sr. Carlos that did the excursion to the West for us today! He did fantastic tour for us, showed us all the beauties of the island! Thank you for this wonderful day and enjoyable experience!

Hi Rosa, Just a quick note to thank you for your help and co-operation in making our stay in Madeira a very pleasant one. Your service was first class and I have to make special mention of your drivers-cum-guides. Gregory, Louis and, I think the driver for our Levada Walk was Ferdinand, were all excellent and great ambassadors for your company. We look forward to our next visit to your beautiful island. With best wishes & kind regards Colin

Dear N Rodrigues,

Thank you for your prompt reply. I am glad that it is all OK. May I take this opportunity to say how impressed we have been with the service both your drivers have provided. Gregory this morning was especially helpfully telling us what to expect but leaving us to make our way without intruding. Brilliant.

Thank you

Richard. - 05-08-2017

Thank you for the wonderful tour of the north and west last Tuesday. Our driver/ guide Manuel was absolutely brilliant and gave us a wonderful day out. We would certainly ask for him again when we come back to Madeira.

Please thank Manuel for us.

Ian G. - 03-07-2017

I would just like to say that we very much enjoyed our three tours by your company this week with your splendid driver Gregory, who was not only very knowledgeable but an excellent driver. Please give him our very best wishes. We hope to be returning to Madeira soon and will contact your company again.

Many thanks once again.

Anne N. - 03/07/2017

Just a note to say thank you for the first rate service your company gave us again this year. Through my rather bad organisation I'm afraid I messed you about a bit but you seemed to take it in your stride. Nelson is a first class driver and excellent ambassador for your island and have no hesitation in recommending him and your company to any friends i know visiting Madeira.

Dear Rosa,

My friend and I spent a week on Madeira recently and stayed at the Quinta da Bela Vista hotel. We were taken out on 3 different days by Suzannah, one of your staff and we would like to say how much we enjoyed our time with her and all the interesting chats we had. She told us such a lot about the island which we would never have known from guide books.

Please pass on our best wishes to her and thank her for all the effort she put into making our trips interesting. Tell her that we hope the Christening party went just the way she wanted it to and that her little girl was fully recovered from tonsillitis.

Hi I had to let you know that my husband and I were very impressed and happy with the service we received from Carlos this last three days. Since our first trip to Nuns Valley on Sunday until our last trip today we have been looked after so very well. His knowledge of the island and interesting facts were so helpful. Nothing is too much trouble to him. We are happy we chose your company for our airport runs and our Island trips and hopefully when we return to your lovely Island we will book again. Of course we have not left yet until you collect us on Friday ! But just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with your first class service.

Best Regards

Good Afternoon Rosa:

Just want to let you know how much our group enjoyed our tour with Gregory. He was very friendly, he is a very knowledgeable tour guide, he made us very welcome, and is very proud of his country and all their accomplishments including soccer.

Gregory also took the time to make reservations for lunch for our group, we had the most delicious lunch. When we returned to the ship, everyone was still talking about our day in Maderia.

Please extend our appreciation to Gregory and we wish him all the best.

The only suggestion we have as a group, is that your company should provide the guide with a microphone, other than that, we felt very fortunate to be on your tour. Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

Best Regards

Sirs We have just returned from our holiday to Madeira arranged by yourselves & want to express our thanks for everything being so well organised. The hotel, Quinta da Bela Vista was very good with staff both helpful and friendly. The taxi pick up and drop off went well and to time. The 3 day tour of the Island was exceptional, we saw so much and learnt about the island and the people. We were well looked after by the driver/ guide, a young lady named Susana, and she was very informative. We do not have the email of this company and hope you could forward our thanks onto them, I would also like to thank your staff for the pleasant way you dealt with me from the original booking to the couple of l phone calls to answer my last minute queries. I look forward to dealing with you again.

D. Aldridge - 08-05-2017

I would just like to tell you that we had an amazing trip with Gregory today...what a lovely young man, an excellent driver and so informative. So pleased we arranged our private tour with you! Many thanks

Jane and Malcolm C - 08-04-2017

We had Tours on three days around Madeira Island. Our driver and guide, collecting us from the Hotel Bella Vista. He was an excellent and careful driver. The car always clean and fresh. He was informative on all things relating to Madeira, making the tours interesting and adapting to our interests,also sharing his love of Madeira with us. When ever we eat a banana we shall always think of him! he will know what we mean. Thank you for excellent service.

Joy and David C - 17-03-2017

Hi there, just reurned hhome after a week at the Vidamar in Funchal. We took both your east and west coast tourswitth Nelson and Manuel respectively. Both great guys and drivers but the one thing that we andothhers sitting in the 2nd & 3rd row of seats had difficulty was in hearing their commentary. Boh tours weree in 7 seater or equivalent vehicles. My suggestion to improve the trip would be to have some kind of speaker system as we and others gave up askin for them to repeat themellves.

Richard B - 01-03-2017

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Susannah for the wonderful tour she gave us today. She was an excellent guide and nothing was too much trouble for her. She gave us an amazing day full of interesting facts on the places we visited. Kind Regards

Margaret & Peter W - 10-02-2017

Good afternoon I just wanted to thank you for arranging five such excellent tours exactly to my specification. Above all, though, I want to say how grateful we were to the driver/guide, who not only put up with my hobbling around but also made each tour so memorable by his expertise and his unfailing charm and good humour - we cannot commend him too highly. You are fortunate indeed to have him working for you.With thanks again and every good wish,

Jeremy J - 05-02-2017
