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

My wife and I absolutely loved our jeep trip with driver and total expert Miguel. We took a full day West tour. Miguel quickly made us feel at ease and we soon realised how well he knew Madeira and how capable a driver he was. He encouraged us to make the most of the jeep experience and stand up at... More

I highly recommend taking a tour with Nicolau. He promptly picked us up from our cruise ship and the adventure began! We got to sneak in a trip on the famous toboggans which was a blast. There is no better way to experience this Island than with the open air jeep. We climbed to incredible heights and experienced amazing views... More

We spent an unforgettable day with Up Mountain Madeira in late December. Even though we had heard many good things about the jeep safaris provided by this company, our expectations were exceeded. Our driver Miguel really knew his way around the island and therefore we felt as the tour was tailored for us. We strongly recommend Up Mountain Madeira for... More

It's been said before but it is all true!!! You cant beat the sheer exhilaration of standing up "squeezed" into the back of a REALLY bumpy jeep, dodging branches and holding on for dear life with absolutely freezing hands. What an experience..it would never be allowed in the UK! My partner was nursing a broken rib and even he said... More

Words cannot describe what a delightful day out we had with Up Mountain Tours on the Jeep Safari. We booked at such short notice that we feared that the tour we wanted would be unavailable, however Nicholau - the owner of up mountain tours made sure to accommodate us - a family of 5 and left us in the safe...

We booked a full day tour to the west of the island before going to Madeira in December. Miguel our driver picked us up at our hotel and from the offset he proved to be an excellent guide. The weather on the day wasn't very good but Miguel ensured that our Jeep experience was exciting and exhilarating. Some of the... More

We were able to make the big east tour with Miguel and an original Portuguese 4x4 UMM car, a great experience. The whole day we felt that we were visiting a friend, who knows everything about the island and wants to share it with us. Being individually guided means that you avoid the usual touristic traffic and even teenagers find... More

This tour was the highlight of our recent cruise on the Cunard Victoria when we went to Madeira - if you have a similar itinerary its well worth booking this direct with Nicolai before you go and such an experience! The open top jeep is far better for seeing the island than the closed jeeps the cruise ship provides and... More

Our family did a jeep tour on December 20. We were in Madeira on a cruise. This was by far our best tour on the entire cruise. We were traveling with a group ranging in age from 71 to 4 years old. Everyone loved it! We got to really see the island and felt like we had a much better... More
