    Great 2 day trip around the east & west coasts. We were taken in a 16 seat minibus each day, with an English speaking driver/guide, who knows the area very well. Our driver the first day knew his stuff but I didn't see him smile until he dropped us off at the end of the day! Paul Coelho, (not the author!) was our driver on the 2nd day & he was very friendly & smiled a lot!
    Definitely a great way to see the island.

    Our guide was Bruno who was very informative and helpful.
    Varied trip to mountains and sea views and of course to a very crowded Santana.

    We initially had a plan to rent a car and drive around the island to see the popular picturesque spots.
    Rental company mixed up our car order, resulting in us not being able to get one so last minute… we went on facebook, desperate for a rental car company but someone recommended this tour. I typically wouldn’t think to do one, hence why we rented a car, however, this was such a blessing in disguise.
    This was not your average tour guide experience, this was very different.
    The tours are very small (my boyfriend & I were with two other people), which I preferred over a massive bus. It felt as if you were driving in a car with some friends on a road trip!
    Ricardo took us around to all of the hot spots, plus extra locations he knows/found as a local …areas you won’t see pop up on google or overcrowded with tourists.
    He is so knowledgeable, told us so much about the island along with some personal stories too. He’s so easy to talk to.
    We never felt rushed, we were able to take our time, explore more, take photos and take in the experience.
    This tour was a very unique… it was so personal.
    We had such a great time, so much so, that we booked another tour!
    If we visit Madeira again, we will book more.
    This was one of the best parts of our trip!
    Thank you Ricardo

    Great trek, this is a flatish trek around the mountain with great views over the canyon and some waterfalls.
    You walk through 4 tunnels, which is also a great experience.
    Your shoes will get muddy as the ground is slightly wet especially in the tunnels.
    The driver was very jovial and made the ride pleasant.
    Would highly recommend this trek.

    A splendid day with our driver who I believe was Sergio. He was a safe, knowledgeable, polite and engaging driver. He had a remarkable knowledge of the local flora as well as interesting information about the areas we visited. He also offered amusing anecdotes that kept the people in the van smiling!

    This trip was easy to arrange and pick up was prompt. The mini bus was comfortable and spacious. Our guide Dino was friendly, informative and enthusiastic . The East of the Island is dramatic with the mountains, wild sea and Dino is very knowledgeable about the flowers and plants.
    We fully recommend this tour.

    We booked onto this tour having been on the Porto Moniz - Enchanted Terraces north east tour two days before and enjoying it so much! As it's such a great way to see hard to reach parts of the island, we booked onto this one covering the eastern side of the island. Our guide Jose was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and plants, and we spent a good chunk of time standing in the open top Jeep going through the forest where you can smell the eucalyptus plants and incredibly fresh air.

    One of the highlights was standing in the open top Jeep and going up and down the valleys on some of the smoother roads, with fantastic views down to the coast and up to the highest peaks. The views from the highest peak when we got there, Pico do Arieiro, were incredible. We were lucky with the weather in that it was really clear (it had rained a lot in the days up to this, but had been told we were there during unusually bad weather). It was however very windy and cold so pack a coat or jacket for this bit!

    We opted out of the 18 euro lunch offer (having not been overly keen on it during the other tour, partly due to the vegetarian options) and Jose recommended another restaurant for us to go to in Santana which was great. Jose also threw in a few surprise stops along the way which I won't spoil on here!!

    This was a lovely and easy-going trip around the island. The highlight was the view from the top of the mountain - a definite must for all coming to Madeira. Our guide was really nice and was a careful driver (not always the case!). A great day!

    Had an amazing day with Miguel (tattoo) on the full day east tour. He gives a lot of information and gives a fun twist on everything. The tour was everything we expected and more!
    He made sure we have seen everything, and we had so much fun (he is a funny guy). Overall an amazing experience and would totally book it again!!
