What people are saying about Santana

A great day full of sightseeing. Some of the views you see on this trip are quite incredible. Our guide, Hugo was great. He had a wealth of knowledge on all the places we visited as well as the history of Madeira. Very engaging and approachable. The transport was good, too; an open-top 4x4, which was great for the off-roading we were taken on. Overall, great value for money and well recommended.

Picked up on time and the itinerary for the day was great. Ana our guide for the day was amazing! I’ve never met such a hard working person with such knowledge and happiness. Seeing all the beautiful sights of Madeira and having lunch was amazing. Highly recommend this tour, ask for Ana the guide she is amazing!

Spencer, the Driver/Guide was knowledgeable and personable. We enjoyed the whole experience because he imparted his knowledge of the flora was impeccable and he made the drive interesting because he explained where we were on the island and what to look out for.

It was a nice tour. We had Steven as our guide. He told us a lot about the island, its inhabitants and the landscape in perfect German. Perfect day!

Variety-rich jeep tour with friendly tour guide Spencer definitely to be recommended ☺️
