A tour to experience a market mainly frequented by locals, so unlike the Mercado Dos Lavadores in Funchal where the only Madeirans you will see are the sellers, this is the real thing and prices are competitive and low. There's authentic local specialities too, Poncha, cider, stone baked bread and so much more ...... The gardens are a must visit too. So peaceful, with lovely birdsong. I could easily have spent an hour there. Santa Cruz is a lovely place too. It would have been ideal to spend an hour or more there enjoying the promenade, enjoying a snack in one of the tavernas. For me the wickerwork factory was a commercialised showcase for tourists, way too “staged” and inauthentic. I would rather have spent my time at the other venues. Maybe because over the years I've visited villages involved in creating one craft, mainly sat at their doors, which is what wickerwork used to be here ...... The tour delivered a unique experience without the need for a hirecar.

What was impressive was that we were the only two people on the tour and yet it was still run. We were collected on time at the designated place outside the cruise terminal. Our guide was helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. This was an interesting journey visiting Nuns Valley, a shipping village where Churchill visited and a country road viewing the various flora of the island.

Lovely tour! It was very interesting, and the places visited were gorgeous. Roberto was a wonderful driver/guide. He did tour in English and German, and did it well. Neither group felt left out. Though there was plenty of walking and going up the mountain, it was not strenuous, and we throughly enjoyed having time to do our own thing.

Morning trip was cancelled due to not enough people so was switched to afternoon. Morning was glorious weather, by afternoon it changed on way up to nuns valley black sky and raining, wasnt happy, did get the giews but would have been nicer to see on a nicer day.

We were picked up promptly from our hotel. David, our guide was very knowledgeable and stopped several times to take in the views, have a drink and snacks as well as using the toilets. The weather was fantastic and we were dropped back to our hotel on time.
