Owner description: 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

This was booked as part of an Adventure Package with Hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro. Originally, this was a "half day Jeep safari", but it was quickly established that this would be a full day. We would be collected at 08.30, and indeed Miguel, our driver and guide, arrived promptly. After a couple of further stops to collect fellow travellers... More

Our trip with Miguel was a once in the lifetime experience we'll never forget. He is kind, knowledgeable, funny and very easy going. Not only he took us to hidden "secret" spots of the island but also showed us various plants, flowers and characteristics of this beautiful evergreen heaven. If you are up for a real adventure and want to... More

My wife and I booked this through our Hotel and although we weren't sure what to expect it is fair to say that our minds were blown away. Our driver and guide, Miguel, was very knowledgeable and easy to get along with. We felt very safe during the entire trip and there were plenty of stops in between to take... More

We arrived by cruise ship on November 2, 2014. Nicolau meet us just outside the terminal as promised. We asked for a trip to the mountains as part of our tour and lunch at a traditional Portuguese restaurant. What was delivered was beyond our expectations. Nicolau was very informative and showed us as much as physically possible in the time... More

We had full day tour of the island with UpMountain in an opentop Jeep vehicle. What a wonderful way to see the beauty of Madeira! Our driver, Miguel, was a great guide, and he took us to a local restaurant where we had a great meal. There were six of us on the tour which was a little tight (four... More

This was one of the best days we had in Madeira. We did the East tour with Miguel and had fantastic weather. Miguel is such a great guide, friendly, enthusiastic without being over the top. I echo all the good comments left by others about about the whole trip, the local restaurant we went to was amazing, great food and... More

Very happy to have spent the 4 hours on this wonderful fun tour around Madeira. Great price which we could have done it longer. Fun drive around the town and island and saw many spectacular natural splendors. With top down and driving through pretty neighborhoods and out to the nuns valley was amazing. The terraced hills and valleys were spectacular... More

I tired to book a jeep trip with this company 2 weeks before my holiday, to receive a reply stating that they had received no other bookings for that week (half-term week in England!) and would contact us should they receive a booking. We have not heard from them since. We had a fabulous holiday in Madeira, but didn't manage... More

Thank you to Nicolau for a superb jeep safari around Madeira. We booked a half day tour, due to the ships timings, which took us to many of the highlights of Maderia - at a very reasonable 30 euros pp. Nicolau explained the history of the Island and its politics as well as the culture. The tour took us to... More
