Full description
On this six-hour tour you can tailor an itinerary with the help of your local guide/driver. You can choose the different areas you want to visit. The City of Funchal, the Fishing Village of Câmara de Lobos, the west sea cliffs of Cabo Girão, the unique Fajã dos Padres, the hill side village of Monte, the east coast cliffs of Garajau, the Botanical Garden, or even the breathtaking mountain views of Nuns Valley are all possible options for your tour itinerary. You can choose to visit Funchal city, learn about its history, and see some of its iconic landmarks, like the Sé Cathedral. If you'd like to go up into the mountains, Nuns Valley might be an excellent choice to visit on this tour. Another alternative is to explore the west coast, with a ride to the fishing village of Câmara de Lobos. You could also head up into the hills to the top of Cabo Girão cliff where, at its highest point,  a glass sky-walk provides you with some breathtaking views over the south east coast and beach below. Close to Cabo Girão is Fajã do Padres, a sea side area in Madeira with no road or walking access. The only two ways to get there are by cable car ride or by boat. On the way up to Cabo Girão and Fajã dos Padres you will be able to admire an ever-changing landscape along the winding roads that fallow the natural shape of the hills. On the return trip to Funchal from the west coast you might choose to stop at the natural swimming pools of Doca do Cavacas. Travel on to Garajau, set at the east end of the bay of Funchal. You will be offered a spectacular view of the Christ the Redeemer statue - older than the one in Brazil - whilst marveling at the crystal-clear waters on the beach below. You also have the option to visit the Botanical Garden. Whatever your choice of itinerary, your guide will be there to help you at every moment.

Our guide, Tiago, was fabulous! we had done lots of sightseeing prior to this tour, so he took us to spots we hadn't seen like Nun's Valley, Christo Rei and a few pico's I can't name. We had lunch in a town near Christo Rei at a fabulous local spot. Tiago was extremely knowledgeable about the island and it's history and he spoke english very well, so nothing was lost in translation. I can't recommend this tour highly enough!

We had a wonderful day out with Tiago. Enjoying the fresh air along the way whilst getting a great commentary about a wide variety of interesting facts about Madeira - it’s history, flora and fauna to name a few topics. We will take away happy memories of a great day out. Would highly recommend this trip which you can either go with you itinerary or be guided by the lovely driver.

We were very satisfied with this tour and the guide! We received competent and extensive information about the island and its inhabitants! The tour was designed according to our wishes and the corresponding possibilities. Unfortunately, there was only one point of criticism, the very competent and courteous guide was unfortunately not quite as powerful in German as ordered for this tour. If my son hadn't been there as a translator, I probably wouldn't have had much of the information on this. Thanks anyway for the tireless efforts to the guide!
