Overall rating

3.7 / 5

based on 7 reviews

Madeira is a gorgeous place, even late in the year, and we were fortunate to have a wonderful tour guide who was a local for 30 years to show us around. Riding around in a tuk tuk, up and down mountains and around rolling corners as we gazed out over a lush landscape was already a magical experience, but our guide made it truly unforgettable. Decio Andre was friendly, funny and clearly dedicated to ensuring we got the most out of our tour right from the start. We became fast friends and he constantly went above and beyond to ensure we saw all the best parts of his homeland. I highly recommend this tour, even if you have already been to Madeira, as the experience of riding around in a tuk tuk in this beatiful paradise is truly unparalleled!

Really enjoyed the tour. Went to one of the mountains and had fantastic views then had an off road journey that was very fun. Next was a drink in an authentic cafe and finally more fantastic views of the island. Our guide was excellent and highly recommended. He made the experience really special.

This is an excellent way to explore the island. It’s much more enjoyable and personal than a traditional bus tour. My driver Andre was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide and I learned much more than expected about the island and the inhabitants.

We had a great tour with Richard - he was knowledgeable, showed us some great places would definitely recommend him and Get Your Guode to anyone

Richard was a great tour guide and, in addition to the actual tour of the winery, also showed us many viewpoints. Gladly again!
