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

I have to say that I wasn't sure what to expect when Miguel and "The Beast", (the UMM 4x4 vehicle), arrived outside our hotel. I had never heard of a UMM before this; it isn't a looker, and will never be mistaken for a Landrover Defender, not even on a foggy night, but it us fought, tough, and good for... More

After doing a bit of homework on what to do in Madeira I was keen to see a bit more of the island and a jeep safari seemed the ideal way to do it. As ever, I checked with Trip Advisor and Up Mountain Madeira came highly recommended. We duly booked and had the best day ever!!! Miguel was our... More

We booked a private half day Jeep Tour with the charismatic, knowledgable and witty Nicolau. Loved it from beginning to end and enjoyed every minute. A brilliant way to see Madeira in a fun and adrenalin filled way! Thank you Nicolau, cannot wait to book another trip with you.

I contacted Nicolau via email to organise the trip on Thursday 18th June and managed to 'recruit' two other couples from our hotel to join us. What a wonderful way to spend our last day on the beautiful island of Madeira. Nicolau is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and engaging host who is will to accommodate the needs of the party to...

Took the full day East tour, and it was a great day out and an enjoyable introduction to Madeira on my first day there. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great, so we missed out on the amazing views which Miguel insisted were there somewhere! Had booked via email in advance, but no problem paying on the day, and was picked up... More

We did the full day West tour and can say from start to finish it was fantastic. A big shout our to our driver Miguel who made it a day to remember. If you want a genuine off road tour and I mean off road then this is the one for you. With great views, levada walks and many opportunities... More

Brilliant day from start to finish - even if it wasn't the best weather to see everything. Miguel was great, Madeira was great. Company on the trip was great When looking for 'something to do in Madeira' Up Mountain can up first in the reviews and once you have taken a trip you can see why. We will not hesitate... More

Just had a brilliant day doing the east coast tour with Miguel. The weather wasn't brilliant but Miguel's constant promise that the views were superb - when one could see them (!) - along with the general banter from the five of us riding along certainly made up for it. Lunch was an optional €10 - wow - worth every... More

My family of 4 (two teens 17,16) did this half day excursion during a cruise ship stop. It was so fun! We loved that we could book a private jeep for just our family of four. We watched other companies drive by throughout the day jam packed with people. We had so much room and were able to stand for... More
