Our tours are always done by a certified guide, 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 « less

I got back from Madeira yesterday and feel obliged to share my review as I used reviews from TripAdvisor in booking this trip. Do it! You wont regret it. All the previous reviews sum up this experience spot on. You can find alternative tours on offer when in madiera that are a little cheaper than this one, but this is... More

We booked our trip with UMM after reading other reviews here and we weren't disappointed. We went on the west trip with Miguel. It was our last day as we couldn't get a booking sooner, but it meant we went out on a high. Our family of four (2 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 14 ) comfortably shared... More

What can I say...... We booked a full day trip with Nicolau through tripadvisor. He was very friendly and quick to respond to our questions and requests. We went to Madeira as a group of 8, and so Nicolau got a jeep big enough for us all. We are a mix bag of ages, from a 4 year old to... More

I booked a full day west tour based on the reviews on here. It just sounded like my kind of tour and if you really want to experience the island - this is the best way to do it in my opinion. There is so much to see that you wouldn't otherwise get to see unless you're in an UMM... More

We had a great day doing the east full day tour. Our guide was excellent and his jokes combined with detours on bumpy forest roads kept things from ever getting boring. The open jeep was surprisingly comfy and it was nice being able to stand up to get a better view and to cool off. When planning our vacation we... More

Full day tour with Nicolau, and new friends. Amazing views and a wealth of local knowledge from Nicolau, a charming and funny guy. Table football in Ronaldo's Bar was a really fun experience too! This tour is a great way to find out about Madeira's history and nature with the flexibility to take it all in. We will definitely use... More

We tried to book a full-day tour of the east part of the island but ended up with a half-day tour of the western island instead as they were fullbooked (make your reservations in time!). Even though we had high expectations we were still blown away. Our guide Nicolau was knowledgeable, helpful and really nice. We got to see alot... More

I can't recommend this enough. Miguel was fantastic and knows so much about everything in madeira. It was my 8 year old son and i as well as some other couples - 7 in total. I wouldn't recommend younger than 8 as it's bumpy at times the walk requires concentration. Great views, food, info, etc and I will do this... More
