we love our island and love to show and give you the real Madeira! The Up Mountain Madeira tours started in the beginning of 2012 , taking our visitors as friends that want to see and try Madeira, far away from the tourist crowds and boring, soulless tours and trafic tourist convoys. Our tours are always done by a certified guide, by foot or in an open classic UMM jeep, all done in a very calm safe and relaxed way. we have our shared jeep regular tours, with max 7 persons and also can tailor out your tour,for you and your party, focusing what you love the most, so if you think you got what it's needed, and brave enough to leave your cosy sofa, to really live Madeira, take a ride with us. discover the real traditional places, markets and people. Madeira is famous for its exuberant nature and its fantastic climate, but also for its people hospitality..and we know that Madeira has so much to offer and best is hiking trails, paths and levadas by foot or by jeep.No Crowds, No Rush, small groups, great adventures! we are a certified and bounded tourism animation company by the Portuguese government under license 118/M/2011 and all our activities are covered and insured

Communication from Nicolau excellent, no hitches experienced. A total of four on the half day trip, all English speaking. Miguel (our driver and guide) introduced us to the... More

We took the Up Mountain Jeep Tour on the east side of Madeira on May 8 and it was so much fun. The day was a bit cloudy at first and our fabulous Miguel was determined to make the best of it. From the views to the levada walk to the stop at a bar and a traditional house, we... More

We took the West side tour and shared the day with two other couples that we had not met before but by the end of the day it was like we had been friends for years. Miguel was our driver and did a brilliant job of taking us to out of the way places that only the locals know about... More

We spent a wonderful day with Miguel. We were a group of 5 cruisers that stopped at Funchal on route to Barcelona. Miguel met us at the port as planned. The fun started the minute we stepped foot on the open air jeep. Miguel spoke English very well and entertained us for 6 hours. The jeep offered site seeing opportunities... More

Very enjoyable full day trip round the west of Madeira, in spite of some foggy weather. We'd booked in advance by email, and Nicolau was fast to respond and to confirm our booking once there were enough people (4) for the tour. It turned out that he was also an informative and entertaining guide, and a careful driver. The off... More
