If you decide not to hire a car if it is your first visit to Madeira, I would recommend Ernesto as your taxi driver. His service was excellent and I'd say his prices were reasonable. If you want to visit certain places, they can give you help and advice. We were with a toddler so a heads up always helps.

His was always prompt and so communication was not an issue. No stress and relax was his motto, enjoy the holiday.

Thanks Ernesto.

Very easy to arrange and paid 40 euros return from outside our hotel Calheta Beach, well worth it as there are no buses up to there.

You have to know them if you stay in Calheta! They are very fast, when you call them, it will take 10 minutes for them arrive to your house!

My wife and I had a great tour with Gregory arranged through the tourist place in Calheta opposite the Savoy Hotel. We travelled around the south side of the island in a minibus containing eight persons all English speaking. Gregory was a very good guide speaking perfect English and we all had a wonderful six hour tour. I would describe this trip as professional and informative with a wonderfully safe driver. I do see there is another review on about Gregory and I am extremely pleased that like me it was a very positive trip and I would recommend anybody who is looking for a cab to ask for Gregory you will not be disappointed.

My husband, myself and our three girls had a fantastic tour with Ernesto. He collected us from our holiday house in Arco de Calheta at 9.30 and showed us the route on a map before heading off in a very comfortable 8 seater vehicle. On the way he told us about the area and answered all our questions. We could stay at each stopping point as long as we wanted. We loved Achadas da Cruz and had a long time there and we had two hours in Porto Moniz eating at a great restaurant which Ernesto recommended and visiting the aquarium. He said we would be back home between 4 and 5 but we had longer at each stop (the girls needed to meet every cat in Madeira) so we were later, about 5.30 - but at no point did he seem bothered about this. He even brought us a scenic way back under a waterfall and then diverted to show us the start of a levada walk in Calheta which we did today. We all loved our day trip, even my hard to please teenager said she loved it. It was excellent value at 110 euros for all of us and way more relaxing and enjoyable than trying to drive ourselves!
