Stop then for lunch (not included) and extra time at the seaside town of Porto Moniz, home to the largest volcanic natural pools of Madeira.

Marco was great! Very knowledgeable about the islands, cautious about Covid, and helping us out of the van, which had a long step down. Seems he knew all the dogs along his route and always smiled at them and was very caring towards them. Gotta love a guide that loves dogs!
