Bruno was an excellent guide, very safe, funny, perfect English and German. Weather wasn’t great up top but he couldn’t help that! Only downside to trip was my wife getting food poisoning in outside café near swimming stop in Porto Moniz, again, nothing to do with Bruno! Despite that we all enjoyed the tour

The most knowledgeable guide we have ever had, Marco knows everything about absolutely everything on the island. The tour was great and we enjoyed every minute of it, but what made it amazing was Marco’s knowledge about Madeira. The western part was absolutely beautiful, and we have found several places we want to come back to. Had to we had more days here, we would book more tours with Marco The only minus was an older minibus with seats that became a bit uncomfortable after a few hours

We did this West Island tour with guide Marco. It was a very good experience, enriching thanks to the comments of our guide. The stops in the different places of the tour were magnificent. Marco was always available to answer our questions. We really enjoyed this day. I highly recommend !! Thea Young
