Jorge was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable about Madeira as a whole. I would certainly recommend his tours and keep in contact with him.

Great way to get to know Madeira’s nature and history. We went to Rabaçal and the 25 Fountains’ Waterfall but Jorge can take you anywhere in the island. He knows a lot about botanic and he took great pictures of us. I can not recommend it enough!
