we love our island and love to show and give you the real Madeira! The Up Mountain Madeira tours started in the beginning of 2012 , taking our visitors as friends that want to see and try Madeira, far away from the tourist crowds and boring, soulless tours and trafic tourist convoys.

We are still a very very small company, with just 2 jeeps, and our tours are always done by a certified guide, by foot or in an open classic UMM jeep, all done in a very calm safe and relaxed way.

we have our shared jeep regular tours, and also can tailor out your tour,for you and your party, focusing what you love the most, so if you think you got what it's needed, and brave enough to leave your cosy sofa, to really live Madeira, take a ride with us. discover the real traditional places, markets and people, not as catle!

  Madeira is famous for its exuberant nature and its fantastic climate, but also for its people hospitality..and we know that Madeira has so much to offer and best is hiking trails, paths and levadas by foot or by jeep.No Crowds, No Rush, small groups, great adventures!

we are a certified and bounded tourism animation company by the Portuguese government under license 118/M/2011 and all our activities are covered and insured

We signed up with Nico online. The signup process could not have gone smoother. We agreed to meet at 0900 just outside the cruise port. Nico arrived as scheduled. Unfortunately the 2nd couple that was signed up to join our tour did not show up and would not respond after repeated attempts by Nico to reach them. So off we... More

Not much to add that hasn't already been said by others. Our guide Miguel was a mine of information in the flora and fauna of the island and clearly has a passion for his surroundings. Where this company seemed to win for us was you were not part of a camel train of 4-5 jeeps all in a procession. We... More

We booked Nico's half-day tour almost a year in advance based on the TripAdvisor reviews. To net it out, we have been on a lot of private (non-cruise line) tours all over the world, and this ranks right up with THE BEST. Nico and his UMM jeep met us right on time where he told us outside the cruise dock.... More

My wife and I booked a tour recently while cruising. Nico was our guide and a great representative of his beautiful island. I could not think of a better way to spend 4 hours in Madeira. It was a fantastic tour and was our second time using their company. If we return we will surely make it number 3. Scenery... More

We booked this tour two weeks prior to arriving. Today Miguel picked us up right on time. Weather was absolutely unpredictable, it was snowing on Pico do Arieiro, than it was pouring cats and dogs than back to sun and back to rain again. Miguel is a safe and good driver above all. He is a kind, friendly person with... More

What a great day we had with our guide David; we were picked-up by an old army-jeep in front of our cruiseboat at the time mentioned. David took us to several places where we had great views and told us a lot about the beautiful island Madeira. The stopover at a local bar was a great expericence; the owner made... More

We did the east tour with Nuno to Pico Ameiro and Santana. Great fun, but take warm clothing as it's freezing. If we return, we will definitely do this again on the west side. Views out of this world.

Nico was our guide, and a very proud ambassador of Madeira. He showed and taught us a great deal in a 1/2 day tour. We were on a tight schedule as we were there on a cruise ship. He picked us up promptly and the instant we were in the jeep the tour started. He told us all about the... More

Thank you Miguel for a great trip. This was planned as a full day however the weather was against us. Miguel asked us if we still wanted to go and advised us against the full day as there would be little point seeing the inside of a cloud for 4 hours. Madeira is about the view. Other companies would take... More
