          A lot seen/experienced in a day but a well organised tour.
          A true off road experience with all the bumps and vertigo, if you suffer! Excellent driving and knowledge, particularly of the flora of Madeira. We forwent lunch in favour of swimming in the lava pools at Porto Moniz. We stopped at the black sand beach at Seixal but only 30mins, and in hindsight would have spent longer at the lava pools at Fanal. Do take your swim clothes! A great day. Would recommend.

          EXILERATING MULTI SENORY EXPERIENCE
          Lino arrived with a smile that warmed your heart and positive joyful energy that was contagious. We went on West Side trip Lino is an encyclopedia of knowledge for everything maderia, history, plants. Vegetation, animals, industry. Each bit of information delivered with joy and passion Our first stop was a traditional little cafe were we stopped briefly for breakfast and take in the views Then the adventure began, I asked if I could stand up Lino encouraged us to stand up to full experience the emmersive experience The scents of eucalyptus trees, pine trees, the abundance of fruits such as passion fruits, the twists and turns on narrow meandering roads (paths) took my breathe away truly awe inspiring We stopped to see the maderian tigers 🐅 (you'll see when you go meerowww) we even got a cuddle on of the kittens. Mother nature at it purest the water streams carving and sculping the landscape levadas sweep down the mountains The views, scents feel sad sound made me feel.so alive blessed my heart filled with gratitude to experience every moment, driving through ,/ under a natural waterfalls was so cool The landscape continues to surprise at each twist and turn. For over a decade iv studied human behaviour / performance I was equally fascinated how intune Lino was with his jeep, aa his artfully navigated the difficult terrain, although its trek he's familiar with mother nature changes it second by second with rolling rocks, stones water fall, trees etc. I can only liken him to classical guitarist that becomes at one with instrument We all felt safe even at moments that seemed extremely precariously We continued to climbe through forests the smell is divine from goats and cows birds of prey Arriving at top we stopped above the clouds the mountain peeks and splendid views below awakened your soul The blue sky created wonderful breakdown. We then drove through the platue and headed to laurel forest iv never seen such divine mystical trees that graced the landscape a hurd of cows which Lino advised to admire from a distance as the charge Natural lakes again breath taking We then headed down to Port Moniz this mother nature at her best and mother nature and human intervention at her most creative There are two different sets of natural pools One waa closed due to weather, my pictures will explain why, whilst the natural ones remained open which I swan and basked in wonderment of the experience crystalline waters swimming with the fi

          AMAZING
          The jeep tour around Madeira was an unforgettable experience! Exploring the island from the unique perspective of a off-road vehicle allowed us to reach places inaccessible to ordinary vehicles. Our guide named Lino not only knew the island like the back of his hand but also could narrate its story in a way that inspired enthusiasm for exploring every corner. His jokes and anecdotes added extra charm to the tour, making us not only admire the landscapes but also have a great time. Thanks to him, we discovered the secrets of Madeira and felt like part of the local community. It was a day full of excitement and unforgettable views that we will remember for a long time!!

          Best way to see the island
          Overall, this was an amazing experience and a great way to see what felt like the entire island. I was picked up at my hotel in a 4x4 and we began our trip heading north of Funchal. We stayed along the western coast for the first part of the morning and then headed into the mountains in the center of the island. Here we saw the magical enchanted forest, a great spot was to take pictures. We then headed down the mountain back toward the coast and made several stops in small villages. At each stop, we found a breathtaking view, and great picture taking opportunities. In one of the towns, we stopped for lunch at a great restaurant on the ocean. We then worked our way around the northern tip of the island. We stopped at the famous black sands beach and had a swim in the ocean. Our tour guide was a very nice man and clearly had spent his whole life on the island. He was full of knowledge about the island, the best spots to visit, recommendations for what else to do on our vacation and where the best restaurants in Funchal are. It was a great experience that everyone should have while they visit Madeira. This is the best way to see many of the most beautiful spots on the island, both the touristy ones and the hidden ones.

          A wonderful experience.
          This was our second Green Devil tour, having experienced the ‘ Northeast – Scents and Flavours’ on a previous visit to the island. Our guide for the day was Leeno (sorry if spelt wrongly!) and he was thoroughly entertaining throughout the trip. He was extremely knowledgeable and judged his audience perfectly. The tour included some excellent off road sections with magnificent views and encompassed visiting areas which would otherwise be very difficult to access. We opted for the lunch option on both of our tours and enjoyed a wonderful meal on both occasions at a very reasonable cost. We have already recommended Green Devil to many friends and family and after this last tour we would have no hesitation to continue doing so. A great value not to be missed tour of the island. We will definitely look forward to our next visit to the island and to experience another adventure with Green Devil Safaris! Thanks once again for a very memorable experience! 😁

          A very fulfilling day! We had a great time with our guide Julia, who is a solid driver and has a lot of sightseeing knowledge. She kept explaining things to us throughout the trip. After a full day of traveling up and down the mountains and witnessing many of Madeira's beautiful landscapes, I enjoyed it very much!

          A must do if you come to Madeira…
          Full day North West Island experience with fantastic host in 4x4 visiting all the key areas. Plenty of stop offs. Proper off road tracks to get up the mountains together with traversing the old roads down. Waterfalls, natural bathing areas and beaches and wonder views. Very informative guide who was full of very useful information about the Island. A very worthwhile addition to any stay on the island. Well done Green Devils and thank you.

          Great trip.
          We are two Danes who were lucky enough to be gifted a jeep safari with this firm before our holiday started. We had an afternoon tour of the Eastern side of Madeira and enjoyed every minute of it. Our guide, Lino, was very informative and not only drove us with panache through the wonderful scenery along steep and adventurous trails but also took time to show us much of the flora that makes Madeira so special. Lino was straightforward and fun and cvertainly knew how to drive a jeep with gusto. All in all, a memorable day, hereby warmly recommended.

          Lino took me and another client up to the Sunday Market at St Anthony's. We had beautiful views and Lino was fascinating and knowledgeable about the history and habitat of Madeira. It was perfectly timed and Lino took a lot of care to make sure that we had a lovely time and we did. Thank you Green Dragon.

          Booked the half day off road vineyard visit. Brilliant experience. Lino our driver was extremely knowledgable and very friendly, great guy. The vineyard experience was great as was the wine tasting after. The off road was brilliant or as Lino put it, Madeiran massage over the bumps. Would recommend Green Devil Safari to anyone and everyone. Added to an already memorable holiday

        I can honestly say this was such an amazing tour! The island was beautiful, amazing food, the locals were lovely and I can’t forget to give a special mention to Duarte our tour guide who was faultless! He knew so much about the island, vegetation, locals and even told us about his personal life experiences on the island he was truly exceptional. The jeep was so fun the bumpy rides up to the mountain top was unforgettable and will be a memory I take with me forever. Thank you so much Green Devil Safari for an amazing experience I hope to return to the island and book with you again!

        We had a great day out with Diego our driver. We went to some fabululous places and he was so knowledgeable. There were plenty of stops for photos and we could take our time. He made our day fun and enjoyable. We stopped at the rum distillery and there was plenty of time to sample the rum plus a knowledgeable talk on the process to make it. We would definitely recommend doing this trip withn Green Devils and Diego

        Just come back from our day out with Green Devil to the NorthEast Santana Traditional Houses 4x4 tour. Our driver Nuno and his co-pilot Juan were excellent company and very knowledgeable. Their English was impeccable. They took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch that was very reasonably priced. We visited a traditional house and also a rum distillery. We thoroughly recommend this tour. Five stars plus!

        We spent a fantastic day exploring the North East part of Madeira. Our guide/driver Nelson has a fantastic knowledge of Madeira, its flora and fauna and is an accomplished off-road (and on road!) driver.
        The adverse weather meant some of the planned tracks were too dangerous to travel but we still saw some excellent sites.
        Timings for pickup and other parts of the itinerary were spot on.
        Thanks to Nelson we learned a whole lot more about Madeira--thank you!

        My partner and I did 2 tours with Green Devils: North West and East: Santana & Madeira Peaks, both with Nunu. If I could, I would rate him and the tours 10 out of 5 as both days were simply special.
        On both occasions we had a perfect mix of main attractions and scenic, off-road hidden treasures not covered by the mainstream tour operators.
        Nunu drives a "vintage", but clean & comfy Mitsubishi 4x4 that does its job of climbing up narrow, windy paths very well. Off-road trails are, clue's in the name, OFF ROAD so some bumpiness it to be expected, but it was nothing extreme and Nunu is an expert driver - we felt comfortable at all times. We also tested Nunu's knowledge to the limits and can confirm that he can answer every question, including history and geopolitics. He is also a lovely person to chat to so we couldn't have had a better guide.
        To sum up, if you are after bog standard, motorway-driven trip between the main tourist traps, book elsewhere. However, if you don't mind some off-road experiences to get to some truly magical spots and authentic, unspoiled parts of the island, Green Devils are a perfect choice.
