Get a glimpse at life on the island at Ribeira Brava, and then ascend Encumeada for breathtaking views of the deep valley and mountains. Continue up to the Paul da Serra plateau to encounter a straight road that contrasts with the winding roads of the rest of Madeira.

    Die Abholung hat nicht geklappt.

    Die Information dieser Tour war eine Zumutung! Ihre Agentur auf Madeira, Choicecar, war überhaupt nicht informiert, somit können auch wir keine Informationen bekommen. Um 8.00 morgens habe ich bei Choicecar angefragt, ob es passt, Abholung beim Ausgang der AidaPrima um 9.00 Uhr oder ob die Abholung früher erfolgt. Mit wurde bestätigt, 9.00 Uhr AidaPrima. Tatsächlich hat dieser Tour HAPPYTOURS durchgeführt, Treffpunkt war um 8.30 auf der anderen Seite der Anlegestelle!!!! Aufgrund meiner Hartnäckigkeit und einiger Telefonate mit Choicecar - der mich übrigens fragte, ob ich in Lissabon oder Madeira bin - wurde der Fahrer, der schon unterwegs war, wieder zurückbeordert!!!!!!! So kam es nicht gehen. Ich hoffe, dass es auf Lanzarote bessert funktioniert. Empfehlung kann ich für Sie nicht weitergeben. Die Tour selbst war dann aber gut. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Friederike Korecky

    The driver was pleasant and knowledgeable. And a good driver too. We expected a bus but was transported in a normal car.
