What people are saying about Madeira

Absolutely amazing trip - could not recommend it more. Logan and Filipe were absolutely amazing hosts - so organised, friendly and passionate, as well as incredibly knowledgeable about Madeira. We saw the sunrise above the clouds and had an amazing hike between the peaks. Filipe then kindly stopped at Santana so we could see some of the traditional houses. Amazing day !

Both to and fro transfers services were fantastic. The drivers were on time and going to Funchal the driver gave us good information about things to do and food and drink. Would definitely use them again.

Booked & paid for in the uk. Our plane was delayed but our driver waited an hour for us. Our driver was very friendly, took our bags, & gave us a commentary of the island of things to do.

Amazing experience and our guide was so sweet and fun! Best experience we had in Madeira :)

Excellent tour with a local tour guide who knows and respect his island very well.
