We went on their whole day tour of the north of the island. We shared a people carrier with a Spanish couple along with our driver George.

We had a fantastic day stopping off for 20 minute breaks at all the sights with a very knowledgeable commentary from George along the way in both languages. He was always able to answer our questions.

At the last stop of the day high in the mountains at a small bar we had a freshly prepared Poncha to blow your head off (George had a coffee).

A fantastic intimate day out - Thanks George.

This has to be one of the best ways to visit the island. Well done Pride of Madeira.

We booked two trips at the local office: the East and the West Island tours. Both were excellent value for money. On the East tour Philip told us just enough without being overpowering and was happy to answer any questions we had. The frequent stops roughly every half hour meant the day was over far too quick, great views, stunning scenery and good company too.
The West trip was just as good with Antonio (2) same deal basically and once again a great day out. The driver/guides all speak good English along with other languages so no problem.
All the tour minibusses converge on the 'tourist' spotswithin minutes of eac other but its really not a problem, on such a small island it is to be expected. This company may not have the newest minibusses but thats no problem...good value for money.
I would use Pride if Madeira again.

We booked a walking tour from a leaflet left in the hotel at 28 Euro per person guaranteed only 8 people maximum. That of course described the mini bus only, what they fail to tell you is you will then join many other mini buses at the start of the walk, in our case 4 buses making 32 walkers with one guide.
The guide was brilliant and very knowledgeable, but even he was angry with the size of the group.
So unless you want to join a circus, make sure you are getting what the ingredients say!

We took the west tour which started at 9 and finished at 5. Pick up a d drop off was at our hotel. Initially we were concerned that this would be too much as it was all day. However, there were so many beautiful stops the day went very quickly. The attraction of this company is that it was a tour in a minibus rather than a coach. Although the bus was quite old, but not uncomfortable. The plus side of a smaller vehicle was that it could drive where coaches could not go, so we saw some exceptional scenery. There was a stop for lunch, but again as it was not a coach we could pick where we wanted to eat. We were the only English couple on the tour, but the driver, Philipe spoke both English and German so we did not feel left out When we booked the tour over the telephone we were asked what price we had seen. We said 20 euros per person and they said Internet price. So we suspect booking in the shop or with a street seller would have been more expensive. We had a great day.

Great tour but the minibus was old and very, very uncomfortable. Other services had much newer vehicles. Our guide also was a constant smoker, rather annoying on a hike.
