This experience is a must when visiting Madeira. Bruno, our guide- is one of the best guides we’ve ever had. From the moment we were picked up, he had us laughing along with keeping us informed about everything on the tour. We were lucky to be a part of the “new route” which in my opinion, is the best itinerary for the day. If you plan on visiting Madeira, make sure to book this excursion, you won’t be disappointed.

Most amazing experience ever. Great host named Gill who was very informative and very helpful knew so many things about the island such interesting facts. The 4x4 ride was fantastic never experienced anything like it before. Great time in the local bakery and resturant. We swam in the most beautiful places and saw so much on the tour definitely recommend it :)

Once in a while, on holiday you book a day out. Most times, if you’re lucky, they’re mildly memorable. But this 4x4 tour was truly exceptional. There were three reasons for this: 1) Madeira’s mountainous terrain is made for off-roading 2) The itinerary was literally unique, and 3) our guide David was worth the price of admission alone. This was a day out with a surprise around every corner (so many corners!) David knows his stuff and was an endless source of energy and fun. He drove us up ravines, down valleys and through stunning landscapes straight out of Jurassic Park. It was truly exhilarating and yet we felt safe and looked after all the way. Highlights included swimming in a lunar-like swimming pool, visiting a hobbit ‘inhabited’ wood, stepping out onto the sheer drop of the skywalk and, of course, the adrenaline fuelled-thrill of hurtling down Madeira’s mountains with David whooping just as excitedly and childishly as we were. Bravo. Do yourself a favour and don’t miss out!
