My girlfriends and I spent 3 days with Discovery Island. We did 2 jeep tours with César as driver and guide. César did a great job showing us Madeira and giving us interesting information about places we saw and Madeira culture in general. He also answered any questions we had during the tours. The tours themselves were full of beautiful places that everyone should see when visiting Madeira. I definitely recommend the jeep tours!

Just great! Four of us booked the jeep tour with our children and were alone with the guide that day. Our guide told us a lot about the area and typical things from the region during the drive. Individual requests, such as a slightly longer break at Pico do Arieiro, were taken into account without any problems. It was a wonderful excursion with breathtaking views and a very personable guide.

Antonio was a great driver and guide. He was able to tell us an incredible amount of interesting things about the sights on the tour, but also a lot of things worth knowing in general. It was fun with him. The weather wasn't ideal with very poor visibility at the top of the mountain, but Antonio still made it a very successful trip with many highlights.
