Sergio was a really nice guide, he drove us to the main spot on the East coast. Cliffs in San Lorenzo and Pico Aireiro are really worth visiting, as Santana, Ribeiro Frio and the sight from Faial. I really enjoyed each moment, I think It Is a good way to visit several spots in a short time visit. I Wish I could visit the west,too. I recommend It to anybody.

We spent our day in East Madeira guided by Miguel who was a very good guide. We were 3 friends plus a baby and made the trip with 4 other people. We were 8 in total and it was a very good group. Activities are as described. At noon we stopped at a restaurant that Miguel recommended to us, we all sat around a round table and ate a full menu. The food was the best. I highly recommend the activity.

Nice day trip! Unfortunately we had to skip the Pico Ariero due to the weather, but guide Mara had some nice alternatives in mind. After the usual stops and a nice lunch at a local tent, we made an extra stop above Machico, where we could spot planes. A nice by-catch for an otherwise successful day.
