I went on this tour with a guide called Marco. He was very knowledgeable and gave us really nice information the whole day. We ate lunch at a restaurant he recommended and it was one of my favourite meals so far. We saw many view points and had plenty of time to visit the different stops. Along the way he pointed out interesting things like different fruits, plants, levada walk entrances, hiking paths… very nice experience!

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

The tour of the western part went very well. Pleasant driver/tour leader who told a lot about the sights and made many stops with often more than enough time to look around and take pictures. We already knew the eastern part (did it two years ago and also very beautiful), but the western part is not inferior to it. All in all, our compliments for the organization of this excursion.
