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 had high expectations from glowing reviews and ratings here on TripAdvisor, but boy, were we blown away after our half a day east tour. After having already been on a relatively touristic bus trip, being able to experience Madeira in an open-top jeep is a vastly superior way to experience the breathtaking nature and sniff a good amount of...

We did the East trip which I booked via email before the trip, were collected on time from our hotel and Miguel provided excellent and informative day out, returning us about 6pm. Great day out, open top jeep a must, suitable for all ages with a good value tasty traditional lunch

Our experience with Up Mountain Madeira was one of the biggest highlights of our entire honeymoon adventure on this beautiful island. Contacting Nicolau by email once we were in Funchal to set up a jeep tour was incredibly easy. He was very fast to respond to us, and he set us up on a tour of the West with Miguel... More

I found Nicolau on a different website, but he customized a tour for my family to see where my mother in laws parents were from. He drove us past their houses and to their birthplace on the other side of the island. He was a wonderful tour guide with lots of interesting stories about himself and Madeira. He was always... More

Nicolau is the PERFECT guide for Madeira. He's incredibly knowledgable and extremely personable. We couldn't ask for a better trip - we saw a part of the island that only Nicolau could show us: from the off road and off the beaten path, to the scenic and breathtaking views of Madeira. Make sure to ask him about the Madeiran traffic... More

Did the west island tour, it was the best thing I did during my week in a Madeira. I only booked it online once I arrived, easy & straightforward. There were just 5 of us in the jeep & we had a fantastic day out. The day started off cloudy but Miguel took us up above the cloudline into the... More

Did both west and east full day tours June 2014. Both excellent ,but the west tour a must do trip for anyone visiting Madeira. The weather was dry and sunny on both occassions, so could enjoy the scenery , and off roading standing in the open top jeep.A much better way to see Madeira than the coach and minibus tours... More

We had a great day exploring the west of Madeira in May. There were 8 of us and an 8 seater was arranged for us at no extra cost. We felt we were getting away from the crowds to see the real nature of Madeira. Our cheerful guide was full of information and tailored the trip to suit us. We... More

Nicolau was our guide for the day and he was great - with such knowledge and passion for his country. There were four of us in the open top jeep - three of who were elderly and Nicolau was out with his step every time we stopped. He could not have done more for us. He took us to places... More

Had a day trip up to the west side of the island with Miguel in the middle of our holiday in May. We really enjoyed the day, Miguel had such a wealth of knowledge about the island, about its history, and great advice about best things to see and do for the rest of our holiday or on another trip...
