This was our 2nd year with Fauna and Flora on the "Wine and Poncha" tour and, somehow, they've managed to improve it on the 1st year. That's the beauty of F&F they're always looking to improve their tours for our benefit. Madeira do table wine as well as the traditional Madeira Wine and every good as any wine you drink... More

Having already been on one trip operated by Flora and Fauna we were fairly confident that a similar experience should be gained from a second excursion. How wrong could we be. Irrespective of the fact that the weather was not conducive to sightseeing or even to appreciate the grandeur of Madeira's northern coast, the Wine and Poncha tour was a... More

What a fabulous day out in the company of Katherina & Umberto. We never thought that we could learn so much about the Geology and Ecology of Madeira in such a short time. From basalt columns to laurisilva temperate rain forest, the history of levadas and being introduced to the biggest daisies and dandelions in the world. (I'll never moan... More

went on there star gazing trip on the 30th sept 2014. They were very enthusiastic and took us to the top of a mountain to view the moon and planets through a telescope. The stars were fantastic with all the constellations and the milky way visible. Hard to find dark skies in the UK. Would recommend this trip thoroughly.

This agency is a secret treasure among the tour operators of Madeira. We had by now 4 trips with them and each one of them was special and made the day a perfect one. We got to know 3 different guides which all love their island and all of them are capable of communicating that in a lovely and educating... More

We have been regular visitors to Madeira for a number of years and so we thought we had seen and done almost everything, we were wrong. We took the Wine and Poncha trip which not only took us to parts of the island we had never seen but provided a very interesting and thoroughly delightful day. Our guides were Antonieta... More

Very good tour. Small minibus trip. Had some sightseeing before we started sampling wine. Went to meet one producer and tried all their wines, then had lunch at a great restaurant and had our first espedtada at a place we'd have never found by ourselves, which was included in the price. With red wine and a taster of Madeira wine.... More

An excellent day in the company of Roberto and Antonieta, our friendly and extremely knowledgeable guides. Not only wine tasting but a wonderful, informative tour of the island, taking in geology, biology and history. A fabulous lunch at a restaurant we would never have found ourselves, tucked away in the native forest, and an introduction to the local Poncha. Would... More

This was a really great way to learn about Madeira, its historical industry (sugar cane and bananas). It was well worth the extra cost to have a really great driver (Umberto?) and a knowledgeable guide who had a real enthusiasm for her job! The driving was fantastic and very comfortable. The poncha tasting and the tropical fruit tasting were great... More
