Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Funchal on a full-day scenic tour of the west of Madeira. Following pickup from selected hotels in Funchal, pass through the traditional fishing village of Câmara de Lobos. Continue to Cabo Girão Skywalk, Europe's highest cliff skywalk at 589m. Next, head towards the Ribeira Brava and go north through the deep and narrow valleys of Serra D'Água. Upon arrival at Encumeada at the top of the valley, enjoy an incredible view of the south and north coast of the island. Cross a mountain pass, where both sides of the island are visible, and travel down to the rugged beauty of the north coast, where Atlantic rollers deposit white surf on the cliffs. Traverse Madeira's highest plateau, and enjoy more spectacular panoramas. Next, go to São Vicente on Madeira’s north coast. Visit the beautiful village of Porto Moniz. Here you will have approximately 1 hour for lunch, as well as some time to admire the volcanic swimming pools. Continue to Paul da Serra to see one of the biggest natural reserves in the world.

Super agent, easy to deal with, went the extra mile to accommodate and collect us from a hotel ~ 40km away from Funchal, very professional, quick, helpful and on top of everything - smiling all the way. Without any reservations, both husband and I would recommend them to anybody, wanting to discover and learn about their beautiful island of Madeira. We need to return and do the South and North trips of discovery, as we only managed to do the West and East. Special place and special people to do business with! Thank you to all in the agency, that made the experiences so enjoyable. See you next Oct. Stella and Paul from Calheta Beach

what's not to love. the guide person was a good driver first of all, very informative, with the perfect amount of info, doesn't make your ears hurt . he had a very pleasant flow of narrating, he might as well do just that as a profession, hats off. we visited all the places mentioned in the tour, everything was precisely timed. we're doing another tour with the same company in two days.

The tour was very good and beautiful. The nature is amazing and you’ll see a lot of things on this tour. Though the day we were going wasn’t the best, because if the weather. The ride on the top op the mountains were very bumpy, and we could not see anything. Be aware of this when you book the tour. There’s a whole part of the tour you’ll miss, if it’s bad weather. Everything was foggy in the top op the mountains and also a bit cold. But can only recommend this tour. The driver, who was also the guide, was helpful and informative. You’ll not regret going on this tour
