This was the best idea to do for our vacation! :) We tasted so many different kinds of traditional/typical food and drinks from Madeira and learned so much about the culture and history of this magical island! I highly recommend doing this tour to get a true insight into Madeira and its people! Obrigada again to our super friendly and empathetic tour guide! :)

The tour with Renke was very nice and informative. And she also had a lot of tips ready outside of the culinary arts. Renke, we implemented your tip Lavada do Rei directly today (and it was a very nice tour). For my personal taste, there could have been one station more savory (instead of sweet), but I'm probably an exception ;-)

Amazing tour! Our guide, Jaqueline, was very knowledgeable about the food and the history surrounding both it and Madeira. She was super friendly and very hospitable. Everything was well organised and the quality of the food samples were superb. The layout and the structure of the tour, as well as the food provided gave a great impression of the local Madeiran cuisine and its history in a short timeframe. I saw some reviewer who gave this a mediocre rating, however I believe it may depend on what kind of group you end up with, ours was very interactive and cheerful which gave everything an amazing atmosphere. Apart from a great food tour, I also made some new friends. All in all, an amazing tour definitely worth doing. Thank you so much Jaqueline!
