Brilliant tour of the west of the island of Madeira. Roberto was an excellent driver and guide, and how glad I was that I wasn’t having to negotiate all those narrow, vertiginous hairpin bends. Roberto kept us informed as to where we were going, how long it would take, not to mention where the loos available en route were. He was also a mine of information about local flora. The trip does take 8 hours plus but this includes a half hour stop for morning coffee and a 90 minute stop for lunch. A two-course lunch at a particular restaurant can be ordered in advance via Roberto at a very reasonable price, which makes life easy. Funchal is enchanting but it’s really worth taking this trip to see more of the island of Madeira and its amazing landscape. You do need to be reasonably nimble to be able to get in and out of the vehicle at the various stopping points. Sit on the driver’s side of the vehicle for the best views.
We've done this trip before and enjoyed it so much we decided to do it again. As before it was a great excursion to do, I was even more happier when our driver showed up at the hotel, and it was the same driver Rui from last year. Obviously for us the highlight was the wine tasting. This time we didn't walk through the winery, but that suited us as we got into the tasting room and onto the wine. Who knows maybe even do it again next year.
This tour was fabulous. The driver picked us up around the corner from our hotel and talked us through the landmarks from start to finish. We had lots of view stops so plenty of opportunities to see the beautiful island of Madeira. Had lunch at a lovely restaurant for a fixed price as part of the tour. Our driver was fantastic! Would definitely book more tours with this company if I was here longer
This trip was incredible. The drive up, up, up was so crazy scary but awesome at same time. The views were some of the best I’ve ever seen. Great trip.
Very nice trip. Beautiful island. Fun and high energy guide. And ofcourse a lot of wine!
