What people are saying about Machico

Really on top, a super friendly guide who adapted to our rather mediocre level of English. I recommend to do a maximum of activity with the same company. Diving is a plus with very crystal clear water. To do with your eyes closed

Very helpful, We had an inconvenient situation with the schedule of the boat and they managed to solve it for us: Spectacular trip with a good guide. I recommend

very nice trip by boat, good explanations - great, new impressions, downer: half an hour waiting time for the boat

A fabulous experience - very professional guides and excellent equipment.

Very nice experience and very pleasant trip with the boat staff
