Did not experience the tour due to the unpleasant girl on reception on the day we visited (22nd October) - you know who you are! From her attitude it would seem that they cater largely for group tours, and we were a party of three....More

Very interesting to find out more about how Maderia Wine is made. Great Tour and enjoyable. Even better when you can try a free sample after the tour

The tours are just boring. What we have there its a museum and lectures about how good the wine is. When we try it its terrible. We can find much better elsewhere. Sometimes even the welcome drinks at Madeira hotels are even superior. A good...More
