    Excellent Madeira Tour with Delightful Guide and Tasteful Experience!
    A very pleasant tour with tasteful local food and wine, where we also got to see a lot of Madeira, together with our very pleasant and knowledgeable guide Graça, who made the experience even better. The weather was perhaps a bit on the windy side, but that's not something we can blame the guide for. Overall, a great day and we can recommend it to others who want to try it out.

    Great Day on Madeira
    The Full Day Wine Tour by Wine Tours of Madeira is truly a great way to spend a day on the island of Madeira. Sophia gave us a great introduction to the wine industry on the island. We visited two Madeira Houses and two wineries thus ensuring a nice sampling of what the island has to offer. Sophia was well known and liked at each stop, thus ensuring we got the very best experience. She was born on the island and had a wealth of knowledge about plants, geography and history. In summary, a great way to see what is happening in the wine industry while getting a good overview of the island!

    Wine tour by a master storyteller
    Sofia describes herself as a Storyteller, rather than a guide, and we totally concur - she was born on Madeira and was a font of knowledge about the island, Funchal, history &, of course, wine. There was only 4 of us on this tour& fortunately the other couple were great company. All of the individual guides at the 4 stops were excellent - entertaining, informative & friendly. It covered both Madeira wine & table wine. We were picked up from our hotel promptly at 9am; the 1st stop at Blandy's was in their beautiful building that was once a monastery; we enjoyed the history of the Blandy generations & the dry & sweet tastings. Next, we drove through the island on the old roads, as opposed to the dual carriageway that rings the island, so much more interesting. We stopped at a vineyard with spectacular views, had the tour of the vineyard, then a tasting of 6 wines, then lunch, which was Espetada - traditional cubes of steak cooked on a woodfire, and very tasty. Next tasting was at Seixal, affording us spectacular views of this part of the island. Final stop was at Barbeito, a more modern vineyard specialising in Madeira wine, very different to Blandy's. Tried the medium sweet & medium dry, which we bought! Dropped back at our hotel around 5pm. Cannot recommend this tour more highly - a thoroughly enjoyable day out. Thank you, Sofia

    Fantastic day out!
    Sofia was a fantastic guide. She was very knowledgeable and en route was a font of knowledge both about the wines and about the island of Madeira. Venues were carefully selected and the tours were all good. It was a fabulous day learning about Madeira wine and the wines of Madeira and tasting so many of them. The lunch was simple but excellent.

    Great guide and Tour
    Sophia picked us up promptly and we arrived at our first stop early. But Sophia was able to tell us so much about Madeira life that the time was easily filled. It was a small group and we were comfortably transported to each wine stop with Sophia giving us plenty of information. At each Winery the guides were also very good. There were occasional stops to see the amazing scenery. The lunch was very tasty and more than we expected, there were also nibbles at each wine stop, so we were very full by the end of the tour!

    Great wine and food tour
    This trip was very interesting and our guide was knowledgeable in all aspects of the journey. We had the opportunity to compare the products from several makers of wine and fortified wine, which was very educational. We fully recommend this tour.

    An amazing wine tour
    Sofia the storyteller made our day. She is so entertaining and knowledgable. She showed us the most beautiful places of her island, made us aware of all exotic plants that had been brought to Madeira, showed us architectural details that we would not have noticed and brought us to wineries in breathtaking landscapes. Besides the liquid trasures we also enjoyed a variety of madeiran specialties. Do not miss out this tour!

    Full day wine tour - fourth time!
    We have done this full day wine tour four times and it is excellent each time. We really enjoy the stories, landscape and the wine. If you want to learn about both Madeira and the table wines of Madeira this is a good choice.

    Spirit of the Story
    Sophia is the real deal - a local Madeiran marinated in the culture, stories and spirit of the island. It was a joy to be guided by her around the stunning island, meet her friends producing Madeiran wine, Madeira wine and food, and enjoy their bounty.

    Amazing Unforgettable Experience
    Not only a full-day tour but a full experience tour too! Sofia is an accomplished storyteller who communicates engagingly, had some fascinating stories and knows everything there is to know about Madeira. Being a passenger travelling on roads in Madeira can be a bit frightening, but our driver was very experienced and we felt safe at all times. We visited many wineries in beautiful places and were hosted by kind and generous locals. An amazing unforgettable experience - highly recommended. Thank you!

    Excellent wine tour
    Sofia, our guide for the day was exceptional! She was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining! All of the wines (13 total!) we tasted were great. They paired beautifully with the views at each location. This tour also especially great because it allowed us to see many different parts of the island, something that only is possible by car. The crown jewel of this tour is the lunch included paired with a glass of wine from the tasting. It features some of the best traditional cuisine so make sure you save room. You will not go hungry on this tour! And as far as its worth, while pricier than some of the other tours available, this tour you really do get what you pay for and more!

    Absolutely the best wine tour you will ever take! Sofia is an absolute gem and you will not only taste great Madeira wines but you will learn so many things about the island from a local storyteller while you gaze upon the beauty and splendor that Madeira offers at every turn. You will NOT be disappointed!

Jacqueline took us on a great tour of Funchal stopping at six different food and drink enterprises, serving a wide variety of tasty treats. We tasted meats, chocolates, tea, cakes, wine and more. Jacqueline is very much a local and gave us a good background to the places we visited and the history of the city. There was absolutely no pressure, at the time, to buy anything from the places visited but many of our group returned later to make purchases.

Highly recommended this tour to see and taste the best bits of Funchal. We had already been in Funchal for 3 days before taking this tour, and we saw parts of the city we probably would have missed. Roberto was a fantastic guide; friendly, very knowledgeable and well known amongst the local restaurant owners. We had some great samples of food and drink and learned a lot about Madeira itself. This tour is great value for money and a great way to familiarise yourself with the city, its food, drink and people.

We had a fabulous walking tour with Roberto. We tasted Madeira wine, Coral beer, wine, panchas, tropical fruit, marinaded pork and tuna white wine sauce. Good thing we got some steps in with all the food and drink we had. Roberto was very informative about the history of the city and local customs. Would highly recommend this tour.

Totally amazing, especially after the full tour with WTM! Loved walking around old town and the new old town, getting a native overview of the city, the culture, the food and the fun - Madeira wine included. Rachel was totally amazing and ensured a fully immersive and memorable experience. Make sure to try everything and memorize the route so you can "home-screen" it mentally and go back from more or branch out later.

Sofia is a wonderful guide and took us to 9 different places over 2.5 hours. We really enjoyed her stories and learning about authentic food, drink and traditions. We discovered lots of places that we wouldn’t have noticed ourselves and plan to go back to a couple to experience them again. We would highly recommend this tour!

The tour was amazing, our guide was super knowledgeable and took time to explain everything and to show us interesting parts of the town, we tasted some amazing wines and food. If you are going to Funchal for a short time then this is a perfect taster to give you an idea of what there is to offer. It took several hours but the distance walked wasn't huge and the stops were often enough so you could enjoy the pace. There were varieties of wine and very diverse food so you get to taste very unusual but typical for the island food

Our guide, Roberto, gave us a wonderful tour of some of the lesser known gems in Funchal on the food and wine tour. My partner and I had a lovely time, and it was great to visit so many places that we wouldn't necessarily have seen otherwise. Roberto was knowledgable and full of fascinating stories and information about the route we were taking, and we were hugely impressed at his being able to speak so many different languages to various other people on the tour whose first language was not English. We can wholeheartedly recommend this tour - thanks very much!!

A tourist trap. The tour was disorganized, the group waited around a lot, the food was terrible, and the guide was offensive at times. The only good part was a visit to Blandy’s winery, which had nice Madeira.

A very nice tour, a very knowledgeable guide. It was not only about food or wine tastings (of which there also was plenty!) but chats about the island’s history, nature, way of life, architecture…saw much more about Funchal than by just walking sround or visiting museums. Recommended warmly.

Can't recommend this highly enough and as others said below, try to do this as early in your trip as possible and have a small breakfast!

Elder was our guide and she was excellent - very friendly and it was great to find out about Funchal and Madeira from a local.

There was plenty of food and drink along the way.

We went back to one of the restaurants on the tour.

thanks!
