What people are saying about Porto da Cruz

This was my best tour trip I have ever had. It’s very adventurous and José was spectacular as our guide. He would randomly stop in several places and show us the plants and fruit grown around the island. The people in the group were also great and I was very lucky to be in this tour with exactly these people. Lots of laughs, fun and the views were breathtaking. Thank you so very much for the wonderful time. I shall never forget this!

it is a great way to get up the high peaks.. very scenic stop offs.. Mr Leno our guide was knowledgeable and very informative. also cracking a few jokes along the way.. highly recommended.

Amazing! Loved every second of it! Monica and the surf instructors were so kind and helpful. Could’t get enough of it! Would highly recommend to anyone in Maderia

Fantastic in all ways, really recommend this trip! One full day of adventure, & we were lucky to experience all kind of weather & different climate zone.

Top Erlebnis, die alten Straßen von Madeira Offroad zu befahren. Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten und auch "lokale" Stops Abseits der Tourimassen.
