Our guide Rui made it an amazing experience all together ! The skywalk was good to start with, the off-road made it superb and the wine tasting was the icing on the cake. The activity as well as the walking in the vineyard for a short intro about the place; more than really getting the background and visual on how the wine is made. The good company was an nice extra. Worth it !

The trip was amazing. Our tour guide was Ruben. Great guide, real pro. He did the tour fascinating, full of interesting fact and jokes. It was my second tour with Ruben and I definitely can say that you will have a great time if you are in his group :)

our day trip was amazing. Diogo our guide was so insightful and friendly and took time to explain points of interest around the isalnd. pick up and drop off went well and we had no issues with the trip.

Great experience with Diogo who went out of his way to restructure the trip due to a poorly passenger. His driving was exciting and fun with rollercoaster rides through the puddles.

Amazing tour! We learned so much about Madeira. Chris is the best tour guide! You will get 8 hours of adventure and fun!! Highly recommended!
