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

Made contact via email to arrange a 'full day west' tour a couple of weeks before travelling. We were picked up on time from our hotel and quickly collected 4 more passengers from nearby. We could all stand up in the jeep for the majority of the tour, which included a 3 course lunch and wine for an additional €10.... More

Booked this trip vie e-mail before leaving the uk. Very simple and easy to do. Nicolau our guide for the day described everything about Madeira and showed us all the wonderful vegetation and way of life. If you want to experience Madeira off the beaten track and avoid all the tourists then look no further. Our 13 year old daughter... More

We went with Up Mountain Madeira based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! Miguel was an excellent driver and guide, our group was pleasant and the experience of standing up in the jeep, driving through the mountains of Madeira, was excellent! We stayed in Madeira for a week and this was our favorite experience!

We took the west side open jeep tour. Miguel was very informative and a great pleasure to be with. He really knew all the routes, including the off-road ones! Saw parts of island you would not see with other companies or on your own. A little more expensive than others, but worth it.

Don't choose anyone else. If you want a more personal more off the beaten track day trip then this is for you. They avoid the tourist traps and don't go in convoy - this makes the day utterly fantastic. Couple of bits of advice: If you have anyone that suffers with getting cold easily then take a light cardigan with... More

Spent the Saturday morning (18th July) with the wonderful Nicolau on a private tour (2 adults and a nearly 8 year old) aside from being an enormously likeable chap his knowledge of the island is second to none and we found out so much about Madeira that we did not know, with spectacular views, some off-roading which our son loved...

Following other travelers advice we decided on booking two tours with Up Mountain. We had an absolute blast and were so happy for the quality of the guides. One day was with Miguel for the west tour with a 4 x 4. He was so profesional, interesting and fun. We went to places we would have never seen on our... More

Took a half day trip with guide Nicolau. He was very informative and I was sorry we hadn't booked a full day as it went so quick. I was a bit nervous but the drive was very calm and my 2 sons and husband loved it too. Some of the roads were unbelievably steep and narrow and were 2 way... More

Third time out with Miguel and Nicolau, who have become our friends. Third fantastic day exploring parts of Madeira you would never find on your own, even in a hire car. This time it was the East tour, spectacular scenery and good company - if you think Madeira is all Funchal and flowers, do try these boys. Ben Nevis is... More
