Great trip up to a mountain top after a cafe stop overlooking Funchal, drove down through a conifer forest, stopped for a pleasant levada walk, lunched in Santana, walked a promenade in Porto Cruz along the ocean, then drove out to Ponta de Sao Laurenco. A very full, enjoyable day. Carlos was a great host. Most of the trip was conducted in Portuguese, but it was good fun for we 2 Americans.

Excellent tour despite the rainy weather. Sergio our guide was great and super friendly and went the extra to give everyone a good experience. Do take up the lunch recommendation from him as it was some of the best food we had in Madeira and certainly the best value. Totally recommend this company.

Great trip and experience overall covering all main locations towards the West. Big Thanks to Diogo Pinto, our guide, who accommodated few weather challenges along the way and offered alternatives. (It was foggy at Cabo Girao - December. We tried again at the end of the trip). The kinda trip I will do again when i go back during Summer.
