The tour with Gerhard was great. You have the feeling that you are out with friends, because he takes great care of each individual and special requests. The stops were well chosen and you can see a lot of Madeira in an adventurous way

Absolutely amazing day out. Duarte our guide was the best. Right amount of knowledge, humour and care. Couldn’t have asked for more. You won’t regret this tour

Very good tour with a professional jeep driver. I really liked the fact that we could stand up in the jeep and admire the views. Highly recommended!

The day couldn't have been better - a special thank's to our driver and guide Hugo, for all that extra that made our day perfect
