We used Happy Tours for both the island tours we booked. They charge €10 per person less that jet2 and it’s all small numbers on the minibuses.
We took the East tour first and it was an enjoyable 7 hours for €25 each and just 8 on the bus. The driver/guide gave information as we went along.
We took the west tour for €25 each which had 16 passengers. This tour was 15 minutes late picking up then we had to return for passengers which another bus had left behind, making it 30 mins late. The driver explained it was due to administrative errors and was very apologetic. He was more informative throughout the day than the previous driver/guide.
I emailed and reserved both these in advance and walked to the shop and paid once we arrived but they can all be booked and paid for on line if that’s your preference.
Both these trips were exceptional value for money. We tipped the drivers €5 at the end of each.

We had a wonderful time! Marta our guide was so funny and so kind. Our 8 year old started to feel sick and she went out of her way to make sure she was comfortable. The mini bus was fantastic, extremely clean and comfortable. We will be doing other tours with this company .

We can definitely recommend this tour company.
We had Marta our driver and tour guide.
Marta did a great job, she was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humour.
We did the West tour and then booked the East tour, because we enjoyed it so much.
We went to a restaurant that Marta recommended 3 courses with wine/coffee and tea for 15 euro’s p.p we was not disappointed! Excellent food and value.
Both trips were all day and was defo good value for money.

Only giving 1 star to Madeira Happy Tours as it was the minimum allowed.
We visited Funchal last month and were extremely happy to book 3 trips with them.

The website seemed appealing and the prices even more, especially the attractive 15% off bundle they advertised.

We decided to visit the shop personally to decide which trips to book and, when asking about whether the discount was applicable, we were informed that it was only valid on the website - the staff member was then extremely rude and also told us that if we tried to book on the website he would decline applying the discount.

That immediately put us off booking anything with them, as it seemed we were the ones at fault for asking for an advertised deal.

We booked our trips with a different tour operator and got extremely better deals and enjoyed our trip.

Booked a number of tours and walks with the company and enjoyed every one of them. Very good organization, thought-out itineraries, bonus stops along the way (viewpoints, rum tasting, etc.). You can feel at once that the guides love their island and try to pass on this love to the guests. The guides on walks are very professional and with a good sense of humor. If you don’t have a car or don’t want to walk the peaks and levadas of Madeira unguided, the company is a great option. Definitely recommend!

Excellent company to deal with from beginning to end. Lady in shop very helpful, driver Tony very pleasant and informative, Emilka our guide was excellent, very interesting and made us feel looked after and safe on our Lavada walk. We have used them before and would definitely use again.

We would not recommend the walk but this was not down to Happy Tours but our bad choice . We did the 25 fountains walk. we were in a wood most of the day and the waterfalls and fountains to us were not that impressive and like a day out at Blackpool. There are many much more beautiful lavadas in our opinion.

We booked 2 tours in the shop, lovely friendly staff. Both times were picked up from our hotel on time. A great way to see lots of different parts of the island. We found it much better being on a mini bus than a bigger coach. We will definitely look at doing some more tours with this company if we visit Madeira again.

The whole trip was well organised, the bus really modern and comfortable and our driver/guide Hugo was fantastic. He even knew all about the plants on the island and has personally walked the trails and paths.
Our lunch stop was very good too - and views were mind blowing.
The company were really helpful when our cruise ship docked a few mins late too

Use this company!!!
They are so friendly, informative and great value, far better than TUI, and other hotel booked Guides.
We did the West Tour (full day) 3 years ago, and the East Tour (full day), and the Markets (half day) last week.
Our guides Martha, and Hugo were brilliant.
We would not use any other company!
