Well what a waste of €42 euro of my holiday. I stayed at the monumnetal Lido hotel with Thomson Holidays and we had a great Holiday rep John who looked after us during our holiday... however the tours with Thomson we're a bit expensive so myself and my wife went to Strawberry world to get them a bit cheaper.... Low and behold we had been warned by John that the tours was a bit rubbish with anyone else, and to be honest he was right. We went on 2 of the excursions with strawberry world who left us standing for over 2 hours in a place in the north west without anywhere to get something to eat. we went to a restaurant where we paid €25 each for a meal and another €15 euros for a bottle of wine. The guide on the coach was so boring and not interesting at all and talked mainly about cristiano Ronaldo on the trip. After we came back we went to ask for a refund which we was declined to get so we lost our money. We went back to John at Thomsons and told him about what happened and we enjoyed our tours with Thomson Holidays which were first class, with a guide and professional service. we really enjoyed the East tour and Nuns Valley and will in future listen to what our rep says and take their advice.
Please avoid Strawberry World Madeira their tours are an utter waste of money. They are poor quality and should not be allowed to guide in Madeira
