This tour was a lot of fun for two reasons. One - I was lucky to meet a great group of fellow travellers from all around the world. Two - our guide Tony. He really made an effort to show us as many places as possible and he would give us ton of information about the island, the local people and the nature. He would point out many different kinds of plants and even slowed the car down a few times so we could take a look at different types of bananas or other fruit. I must also compliment his driving as driving around Madeira is not easy and he did an excellent job while speaking most of the time and giving us all the information and answering questions. He also gave us numerous tips on where to go eat or drink around Funchal area. Part of the trip was also a lunch in Porto Moniz and free wine tasting in Sao Vincente. I had my first (and hopefully not last) Lemon Poncha there. Both the lunch and wine tasting were excellent additions to the trip. All in all I had a great day.

We loved our tour of the west side of Madeira! We had an awesome time- our guide was fantastic. The weather was just perfect and we had a great lunch at the restaurant that the guide suggested in Porto Moniz. Definitely would recommend this tour and Bearded Madeira Tours :)

Enjoyed my trip! We didn't have the best weather, but that didn't stop us from enjoying the (north) west of the island. The only feedback for improvement I had is that I would have liked to get a bit more info of the places we were visiting during the tour.
