What people are saying about Machico

This was my best tour trip I have ever had. It’s very adventurous and José was spectacular as our guide. He would randomly stop in several places and show us the plants and fruit grown around the island. The people in the group were also great and I was very lucky to be in this tour with exactly these people. Lots of laughs, fun and the views were breathtaking. Thank you so very much for the wonderful time. I shall never forget this!

So professionally organised. Pedro and Fabio where absolutely great, friendly and very welcoming. They were knowledgeable and always happy to share with us. I highly recommend this adventure and would definitely be back for round two. Thanks

it is a great way to get up the high peaks.. very scenic stop offs.. Mr Leno our guide was knowledgeable and very informative. also cracking a few jokes along the way.. highly recommended.

Fantastic in all ways, really recommend this trip! One full day of adventure, & we were lucky to experience all kind of weather & different climate zone.

Top Erlebnis, die alten Straßen von Madeira Offroad zu befahren. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten und auch "lokale" Stops Abseits der Tourimassen.
