As the island is very quiet at present I benefited from a one to one guided experience (actually two to one as a trainee was tagging along). That apart, my young female guide was knowledgeable, engaging and very open to my various (sometimes off-topic) questions and filled in the gaps in my limited knowledge if the island and its history most effectively. Always best to take a tour like this to better understand the place you’re visiting, and as a bonus, personal gratuities are politely declined with the suggestion that a donation to support student activities is preferred .
We had a beautiful and unforgettable experience. Hugo was our guide and he is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He is also an excellent driver which is required for this trip as you go off-road. He speaks perfect English and went above and beyond to make our day pleasant. Due to COVID there was only us booked in the tour and he didn’t cancel which is a great customer service. I would definitely recommend this.
Both student and senior guide were quite passionate on telling the history and the special aspects regarding the city of Funchal. They were well prepared and they guided the tour in a very friendly spirit. I collected a valuable amount of information and now I am able to use this knowledge to appreciate and understand the city while walking around by myself. I really enjoyed the tour!
Had a really enjoyable day with Spencer from Green Devil tours. He was very knowledgeable about the plants and history of the island and just a lovely guy. On this tour you get to see many different terrains of the island and loved swimming in the volcanic rock pools. If you are only going to do one tour of the island this is the one to do.
We would highly recommend this company for any excursions you want to do in Madeira. Out guide Neno was amazing and is one of the best guide we ever had. We had plenty of time to enjoy the natural swimming pools and the off road was amazing. It went above expectations.
