Madeira's best tour

it was interesting, fascinating, and informative to see the center part of Madeira, the winding roads, villages, the rebuilding after terrible mountain slides in 2010, the walk in the volcanic tube, the video. the company handled the bus breakdown in a tunnel in a wonderful way and gave us free coupons for another trip in Funchal.

An interesting way to get to know one more aspect of Madeira

This was the first time I visited a volcanic cave, and for a person like me who is fond of speleology it was a memorable experience. I wish I had more time there because I would have liked to have a closer look at the formations, the cave's genesis, and, of course, to take more pictures.

Ein gelungener Ausflug :-)

Rosa war eine super Reiseleiterin, sie erzählte auf erfrischende Art und Weise Die Lavahöhlen-Tour war interessant, wir hatten auch das Glück, dass an diesem Tag nicht viele Personen (auch Gruppen) die Höhlen besichtigen wollten. Die Info erfolgte auf Deutsch und Englisch. Im Vulkan-Center selbst war ich nicht, ich "chillte" lieber in der Sonne. Sao Vicente ist ein schöner kleiner Ort, ich schloß mit einer sehr netten Bedienung in einer kleinen Snackbar "Freundschaft" -- d.h., sie war so nett, dass ich ihr versprach, in 3 Tagen wiederzukommen (ich wusste ja, dass 3 Tage später in einer anderen Tour ein Stopp in S.V. wieder vorgesehen war) -- und das tat ich denn auch, die Dame erkannte mich auch gleich wieder :-) Die Tour insgesamt kann ich ruhigen Gewissens weiterempfehlen, die Stopps an der Küste waren für meine Begriffe übrigens völlig ausreichend. Alles bestens !!!!
