We really enjoyed our walk. Our guide, Louise, was super; very informative with excellent English. We were especially impressed by communication by email before we booked and by their willingness to fit in with us, since we came in on a cruise ship and only had a short time. I would definitely use Nature Meetings again and hope to do a longer walk next time.

The company was supported by very well trained and highly motivated guides. We booked during our vacation three tours around the island (North/East; South/West and Enchanting Santana) and had the luck, that all tours were guided by Marcel. He surprised us with his profound knowledge about the area and nature and gave us detailed briefings during our tours. We had a lot of fun during the walks, what was occured by Marcel's humorous character. Unexpected things were solved without any delays so that nothing had an impact on the ongoing tour.
We liked the tours and recommend the company because:
- small groups only
- very good lunch
- high degree of fun
- very impressive and informative
- very good language proficiency (Dutch, English, German, Portuguese)

Thank you Nature Meetings for a wonderful vacation!

We took the Land und Leute - South/West tour. It was by far the best tour we took on Madeira! Unfortunately it was the only one we took with Nature Meetings. Our guide Marcel was so knowledgable. No question was too minor for him to answer and he gave us a wonderful feel for Madeira and the people. We toured a banana plantation, took a short levada walk, saw a sugar cane factory and much more. He gave us more information on this one tour than we had gotten on two tours combined with another company. I would highly recommend Nature Meetings. We had a driver as well as the guide, Marcel. This allowed Marcel to be more attentive to us. We felt safe, the driver was a good driver and the roads in Madeira are windy and narrow! Without question, I recommend Nature Meetings!
