Fantastic views of Madeira, it was a great way to see much of the island as I do not drive. Swimming at the rock pools in Porto Moniz was a highlight, but I also loved the viewpoints seen on the way. I'd recommend bringing a packed lunch so you have time to go swimming once in Porto Moniz - if you eat at a restaurant there, you will not have time.

Very professionally run, Marco is a wonderful driver/guide. Did his utmost to avoid the rain by tweaking the itinerary and managed to get us to beautiful Porto Moniz in sunshine. Very comprehensive commentary throughout and such a good humoured man for the entire tour.

100% recommended. If you want to explore the other side of the island, this tour is perfect. Communication with the tour office was great and my guide Bruno was great. He spoke fluent English and German, and throughout the tour he explained everything about the destinations. One critical point; if you are tall try to ask for the seats in the front. I'm 173 cm and my knees were against the chair in front of me. That's the only "bad" thing I have to say. The rest was just perfect!
