About
On this tour we leave Funchal in the direction of Poiso with an altitude of 1412m and then climb through the mountains to Pico do Arieiro at a height of 1818m. This is one of the most beautiful places with breathtaking views of the island of Madeira. We stay here for a while and walk a little. We then descend to Ribeiro Frio where we are in the Laurissilva Forest and we visit the trout nursery. We continue our adventure along old paths passing Cedro Gordo and Cruzinhas until we reach the Village de Santana where we will visit the typical straw houses (Colmo). After this stop we descend to the village of Faial with amazing views down to the sea and then continue towards Ponta de São Lourenço in the east of Madeira. This part of the Island is much drier and arid, but with a unique beauty due to its cliffs and colors. Tour is flexible can be changed because of weather or roads, we look for the best weather conditions for u.

We had the best time with Mauricio who went above and beyond to give us a good time. The best part was driving off-road through remote fern forest - spectacular.

OMG what a cool tour we had
I simply can't understand how our driver Mauricio can safely drive in these narrow roads and at the same time entertain us.
Have you seen where dinosaurs lived? Now I know 😉 Here are some pics.
I was first time at this tour with my mom in Oct 2019. Now I came here again and had the same tour. As I already knew what to expect I had again during all day so much fun you can't imagine. Highly recommend 🤩🤩🤩
And i need to point out we had in the car deso solution, but I had my own too. It is safe here!

Show must go on!!!

AMAZING TOUR!!!!!
Mauricio was an excellent guide and made the tour an amazing experience,we traveled through the wet muddy peaks of the mountains and stopped to take lots of pictures of the trip as well as stopping at many view points to see the stunning sights the island has to show and we also stopped at a lovely cafe on the west coast of the island and had a lovely lunch.To end the trip we stopped off at a spectacular beach with black sands and views of the waterfalls from above and went to a wonderful local bar and had peanuts and drinks.Mauricio’s 20 years of driving experience really did show and he didn’t fail to make the experience not only thrilling but very interesting with all the knowledge he had to share about the island.Mauricio is not part of a company but works on his own,he knows every part of the island like the back of his hand and knew someone where ever we went.This was truly a life changing experience and I would happily do it again if I was to visit madeira a second time.

Highlight of our holiday!
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had a day of fun on the "Old Forest" tour in Mauricio's Landrover, visiting so many fascinating places on the island. If you've not visited Madeira before, the Just Go Tours 4x4 experience is a fantastic way to see the island. Mauricio clearly loves Madeira Island and knows it well, and took us to places off the beaten track as well as popular tourist spots. He checked the weather and timed the visits to each place so that we would benefit from the best possible weather as well as avoid the peak times for other tourists. The off-road parts of the tour were fun and exciting, and gave us an unforgettable experience of seeing the remote parts of the Island that would otherwise be hard to reach - "jungle" terrain with tropical flowers, trees and fauna. We stood above the clouds at the top of Pico do Arieiro, road through beautiful forests and lush farmland, tasted the local alcoholic drink "Poncha", visited the village of Santana with the straw houses and saw stunning views of the coast, and much more!

We loved the tour so much that we booked him for the "Amazing West" tour the next day. He promised us we would have even more fun, and we certainly did! We saw another other side of the Island, beautiful coastal fishing villages, stood on the glass platform on the cliff of Cabo Girão, saw natural waterfalls, swam in tidal rock pools and experienced more crazy off-road adventures, drank more Poncha (yay!) and made some new friends who shared the tour with us.

Mauricio shows consideration and respect to his passengers at all times, making sure everyone is comfortable and happy. He allows his passengers time to experience the surroundings at their own pace.

Thank you Mauricio for helping to make our holiday in Madeira really special! We'll be back for more!

AMAZING TOUR
Apr 2019 • Couples
The tour was amazing. Our guide Mauricio has such incredible knowledge and love for Madeira and his work! We did the East tour, saw breathtaking views and learned so much about the Island, it's history, vegetation and culture!
His car, an awesome Land Rover was so fun to drive in on the off-road paths and because Mauricio is such a skilled driver, we felt completely safe even on the stiffest roads. We could have never get to these beautiful viewpoints if we had rented a car or if we went of a bus tour. This is truly the best way to discover the Island, I will definitely do other tours with him and I strongly recommend him to anyone who wants to have an authentic and fun experience! This tour was the highlight of our vacation! Thank you Mauricio for sharing your beautiful homeland with us!

Off the beaten track
Mar 2019 • Couples
If you want to see real Madeira and learn about the island from someone who clearly loves his home then this is the trip for you. Mauricio picked us up at the hotel in his wonderful Defender and promptly told us we were the only people on the tour that day !. How many companies would have cancelled?. So a terrific day long personal tour with great information about the island , great conversation, terrific vistas , good coffee and a little poncha, along with the odd Adrenalin rush on the more demanding sections of the route. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great and we couldn’t get above the clouds but none of that diminished a thoroughly fascinating and enjoyable day. We would thoroughly recommend Just Go Tours to anyone who wishes to see what Madeira is about beyond Funchal.
Thanks Mauricio, you added a very different and enjoyable dimension to our holiday.
