Madeira is famous for its exuberant nature and its fantastic climate, but also for its people hospitality..we intend to perpetrate this, being our ideology: "Not a customer, a friend"and we know that Madeira has so much to offer, but best is only accessible by hiking on trails, paths and levadas or on all-terrain vehicles properly prepared for this purpose.No Crowds, No Rush, small groups, great adventures! « less

We enjoyed a fantastic half day with Miguel. Four of us and a 'jeep', which made for a brilliant experience. The open roof and ability to stand when appropriate was superb. Miguel was happy to stop whenever we wanted to, and we liked his words and wisdom. Off roading was fun, and in many ways it was the highlight of... More

At very short notice we decided to try the up mountain tour and were fortunate enough to be contacted by the company saying they had space on the very day we wanted to go. We were met by Miguel who although having been laid low for the previous 2 days was more than merry host when greeting us at the... More

Booked a full day tour and we were met at the Cruise Terminal by Miguel. This gentleman could not do enough for us, he was informative, humorous and an excellent driver. The views you see on this trip have to be visited by off road vehicles and they are spectacular. The local drink [Poncha] was delicious and the lunch at... More

We booked a tour of the East side of the island because we were staying in Funchal and the tour leaves right out of the city. Miguel was an excellent guide. He picked us up promptly at 9 am at our hotel and we were off on an adventure for the entire day. We saw so many breathtaking views, went... More

There is not much to add as all the other reviewers have said it but i have to agree with them....this really is a fabulous trip, our guide Miguel was friendly helpful and very knowledgable about his island, the weather was not as kind to us as it could of been and we experienced lots of different weather fronts throughout...

I booked a one day tour for my family with Nicolau when we were in Funchal for a day on a cruise. Nicolau was very personable and friendly in all the emails arranging the day's activities. He was promptly on time picking us up, and got us back to the cruise ship right when we needed to be there. His... More

We had a fantastic day with Miguel ( plus cat, dog, cow and chickens :) :) ) and four other travellers in an open top jeep touring the south of the island. Up and over the mountains, off road, he took us to places we would never have found or even been able to get to in a normal car.... More

Everyone says 5 stars. Yes, it really is that good; Miguel makes you feel like you are the first he's ever taken around Madeira, do NOT miss this. We'll be coming back to Madeira, not least for another day out with these boys! Great value lunch, with wine, for 10 euros, too, and if you get the chance to finish... More

This was the highlight of our holiday. I was a little dubious when another 5 people joined us in the jeep but it was a great day. Miguel has a lot of knowledge about the island and is very easy going and loves getting hold of your camera to take many many photos. We saw great views and climbed tiny... More
