So from booking in the office, to meeting our guide, the quality of the bus, the banta from the driver, to the places we stopped we were just pleasantly surprised at how good it all was.
The price was great and the local knowledge was plenty.

Each stop offered something different and lots of photo opportunities. With just enough time to enjoy the areas before moving on.

We personally would have liked longer at the lunch stop but that is personal preference.
We would have also liked to have known about the 3 course lunch that you could book though the driver as we would have not booked to go out for dinner. €16 each was an amazing deal.
But even saying this we still found a lovely lighter lunch available on the stop.

Highlight of the trip for me was the natural pools.
Would visit it all again (when warmer) just to have a swim

Just done 2 tours and 2 levada walks booked through Marco at Madeira Happy Tours. All of them were excellent - pick up times were prompt, the drivers were extremely good and very knowledgeable. I booked the tours from UK before we arrived in Madeira and Marco responded quickly to any queries I had. We have thoroughly enjoyed seeing most of the island and would recommend 100%.

The Go West tour covered eight stops, we did seven as the north side of the island was shrouded in mist! It is a must do tour to get the full feel of the extent of this volcanic island. It really is dramatic to have such craggy peaks on the upward journey to a plateau of 20 square kilometers at the top, being the crater. The minibus was comfortable and had microphone and speakers which was great, our guide spoke fluent English although spent most of the time talking to the German and Portuguese trippers. We were looking forward to a dip in the volcanic pools but it was drizzling when we got there and the sea was overtopping the pools. We had an amazing lunch at Aqua Natura Sea View Rooftop with views of the rollers turning over before crashing on the rocks.
I definitely recommend this tour.

This tour was amazing!
We visited several places with stunning views made all the more interesting by our knowledgable and skillful driver, Hugo. The information he gave us about the history of Madeira and its flora and fauna was just right.
In particular we enjoyed going to Pico do Arieiro and you could truely believe you were on top of the world. We would recommend Happy Tours and Hugo as being excellent value for money and a great day out.

We have been on several trips with This company and they have always been fantastic. We did the West tour this time and it is great value. We like the fact you are in a small group with a local driver who knows everything about the island. We will be back next year.

Fourth visit to Madeira and fourth time with Happy Tours for day trips. Sunday Market trip very interesting, not your usual Sunday Market fiasco. Full day East Tour also excellent with very good driver Martha. Will continue to use them.

We used this agency for a tour of the westside of the island. It was a very nice experience and the driver was very good with lots of comments and information during the tour. Hugo Boss was the drivers name, would recommend anyone thinking of a tour, to use this agency and driver!
