          Fun Tour on a scenic route
          Great Tour with several stops. Each stop got a perfect amount of time to explore, take pictures and enjoy. Perfect Tour for anybody who doesn't have a rental car here but still want to get a good look at the Island!

          Great trip
          A brilliant final day of our holiday in Madeira Our guide was lovely and friendly. Even lent me his jacket when it started to rain. The stops we made were great and timings perfect for us. Gained lots of interesting facts about the island during the tour and the views were spectacular! Would definitely recommend this trip. Great value for money.

          A great way to see the area in comfort
          A really good trip, with lots of stop off points and lots of information about the island. It got quite busy in car parks as day went on but we managed to park and get out. Time to have lunch and coffee stops. Can be cokd/ wet at Fanal so take the right clothing.

          Fabulous guide and driver
          How have I not booked a tour through this company before? Cristian was the kindest, friendliest guide who got the balance just right between too much and not enough information. His colleague Rui the best driver. Although I've done the West tour multiple times with other companies, this was by far the best. The stops were some of my favourite places on the island. We got a map and even a guide book from Cristian. A very full day with no panic to rush back each stop. Thank you guys for a fantastic day. I hope to do another tour with you both next time I return to my happy place.

          Exploring the east of Maderia
          We thoroughly enjoyed our day exploring the east of the island with Christian as our driver and guide. We learnt so much about the beautiful flora, the history of the Madeira and saw an amazing amount in one day without ever feeling rushed. The itinerary on the website gives a really clear idea of what you can expect. Christian was friendly, gave us clear instructions about length of stops, where to find cafes and toilets and was a careful driver. He had lived on the island for 24 years and had a fascinating grasp of the climate, history and industries. There were 4 passengers in a comfortable, air conditioned minibus. Our fee of €30 each seemed really good value for a full 8 hour day of discovery. We would highly recommend Madeira Island Tours. The booking system online is easy and staff at the office are very responsive. I dropped in to the office in Funchal to make a change later in the week and again the service I received was friendly and helpful

          Fantastic way to see the island
          Fantastic tour. They had a car seat for my little girl. We stopped at many points of interest and I highly recommend you opt in for the lunch too! A great day out that has added many memories to my Madeira holiday.

          Great value private tours with fantastic guides - highly recommended!
          As a family (4 people - 3 generations) we were in Funchal for a week and booked two private tours through this company based on reviews we had seen. On one day we did a 6 hour tour to the West of the island and on the other day a 4 hour tour to Nuns Valley and other viewpoints. They were similar to the tours offered on the website but we were able to tweak them a bit and, being a private tour, we could decide how long we wanted to spend in each place. I contacted before we travelled to arrange via email and the communication was very quick and easy and overall I felt the value for money for private tours was excellent. We had two great guides, Manuel on the first day knew the island so well having lived there as a child and then for the last 30 years - he pointed out places of interest, told us about the changes he had seen and changed the itinerary to give us the best experience on a rather wet and misty day when the views were not good. Susana who took us on the second tour ensured she didn't repeat the information we got on the first day and told us more about the people and how they lived. Because the weather was so good she included extra stops so we could see some of what we missed on the first day, and showed us some "off the beaten track" viewpoints that we would never have found without her local knowledge. She also told us about her life and family which was really lovely. On both tours were were in a large clean vehicle, they both drove brilliantly up the steep roads and we felt very safe. Highly recommended and we would definitely use this company again.

          Well below par and doesn't live up to the hype, cheap and not even cheerful!
          We actually booked the package this company have for EUR 70 each with 2 full day tours East & West and a half day tour of Nuns Valley. We should've realised that you get what you pay for as these were by far some of the worst tours we have done in all our time travelling. They definitely saved the worst till last though as today we've been on a tour that should not have run due to the extreme weather conditions here on the island which not only impacted our enjoyment but also compromised safety in some places. The guides on all trips were not a great standard and whilst the first guide we had was more enthusiastic he was hard to understand and sadly had a stutter. Today's guide for the West tour though was robotic at best and did the bare minimum. Also on all tours it was hard to hear properly as the microphone headset they use is not up to standard and this doesn't help with the tour experience. We had issues on both trips not being able to complete the planned itineraries but the first guide for the East tour tried to include ' extra' stops and places to see to compensate. The guide today did nothing to give us an enhanced experience and we actually seemed to come home at least 30mins earlier than noted on our confirmation and he picked us up over 20 mins earlier so we definitely feel short changed. Also the transport is very cramped. The bus seats are very small and some of the seatbelts don't work (get stuck so wont reach). The transportation for the West tour today was particularly poor and with such horrendous weather conditions for the majority of the tour the windows were all steamed up and we could see nothing, that is when there was a slim chance of seeing anything anyway! When we arrived home today we called the company to discuss our experience and particularly the trip today, but they were not interested and told us to email in, it wasnt an emergency and noone was available to speak to us and listen to our comments. What a shame. The company seemed to get good reviews which is why we booked our special holiday tours with them but we are now really regretting not having gone elsewhere. These are days and experiences we will likely not get to enjoy again and Madeira Island Tours have certainly not helped to enhance our experience of the island. Yes they've driven us round for hours in a cramped minibus but that's about all we can say we got for our Euros! Such a shame indeed and we would urge you to look elsewhere before entrusting any trips/experience when you are booking for your Madeira explorations. Learn from us, sadly its too late for us

          A Brilliant Day Out.
          Just returned from the East Island Full Day Tour which we thoroughly enjoyed. The scenery was spectacular and our guide was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable, even making unscheduled stops at beautiful locations. Bravo, a great holiday experience - thank you. John and Janet

          Wonderful tour of west Madeira
          A fabulous day seeing many so many different parts of the west side of Madeira. Our guide Luis was very informative and was obviously eager to showcase the many beauty spots and natural wonders of the island. I would highly recommend this tour.

          Fabulous variety of scenery
          A well organised door to door trip, excellent commentary and information throughout, and of course stunning views that are a must see, particularly given the varying weather conditions as you cross the island!

        Rodrigo, our guide, was brilliant, knew such a lot about the plants and history it made the walk really good. Though if you have dodgy, ankles, knees or hips it is not just a small amount of steps,. On this walk there are lots and lots!!! It was really nice to be in a small group with an excellent guide.
