Excellent communication regarding the trip and pick up. Fernando is an excellent host for trip. Fun, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, lots of stops to explain the history and culture. Trip itself is well organised with good mixture of stops, a walk, excellent value lunch stop, breathtaking views. Thoroughly recommend.

Because of delays getting to Madeira, we had to cancel our initial 4x4 tour. The tour company was more than happy to accommodate us by rescheduling this tour at the end of our stay. They were even able to make various suggestions for our stay prior to the tour. They were also very quick to respond. Our initial plan was to take the tour to get a feel for the island, filling in the blanks later with the rental car. As the tour was rescheduled and we had seen most of the main attractions with our rental car, this created a challenge for Jeff, our tour operator. Jeff did not disappoint. We were picked up at our lodging, and true to the tour description, we spent part of the day off roading to areas not otherwise accessible. Amazing views! Jeff was an excellent driver navigating roads that would have been very difficult, if not impossible for a visiting driver. He was very knowledgeable about local traditions and history having visited family in Madeira as a child, and moved to Madeira later. Jeff and the “Hit the Road” tour group truly care about their clients, making sure they have the best experience possible. I would encourage those planning a trip to Madeira to watch the “Hit the Road Madeira” Vlog for some interesting background and previews. Very well done! Thanks Jeff for the excellent tour!

Had a great beautiful full day tour with Jeff. Highly recommend Hit The Road. Our only request was to see the sunset and Hit the Road figure the rest out for us. At one stop we experienced a Brocken spectre, our shadows were in the middle. We all felt very angelic!….

Had a wonderful day with Jeff exploring the beautiful island of Madeira. He was very accomodating, altering his plans to account for mobility issues and other requests. We had an amazing time and it was a highlight of our trip to the island.
