I recommend, very good organization from the beginning of online booking. The bus left at 8.30 am and returned at 4.30 pm. Many interesting places and stops near viewpoints, as described. Nuno - the guide told a lot of interesting facts about the island itself. I suggest taking a warmer jacket, in January the weather was changeable in various places we visited.

A very nice and well organized tour. Great to see the main miradouros of the island. In the stop in Porto Moniz we had 2 hours to try the natural pools. The water temperature in January was 18 degrees but it was great outside and there were lots of people swimming. I recommend taking lunch with you so as not to waste time and enjoy the 2 hours of relaxation in the pools to the fullest. We are very satisfied with the tour. Marco, our guide, was very good and told us many things about the island.

The tour was great, we appreciated we were picked up and dropped off 2 minutes from our hotel and we've covered all the main sights in the west of Madeira. Nuno is a great guide, conducting the tour in multiple languages and providing structured information. The tour is made in group fitting in a shuttle which makes it so much easier.
