Highlight of our holiday!!
Sep 2020 • Couples
We did the West-Tour and enjoyed breathtaking views, lovely swims in Porto Moniz and adventurous off-road tracks. We had the time of our lifes with driver David! He drives the Jeep like a pro even through all the rough off-road parts of the tour. It was so much fun!
We recommend it to everyone who wants to get a different and new sight of Madeira !

The Best Way to Discover Madeira!!
An absolute wonder! We did a private full day safari with the amazing guide Rui!
Rui is super professional, efficient, nice and a man from the island that loves what we does! He took us everywhere and showed us all the impressive and important places along the island!
We did all the off-road trails in the island aboard an amazing 4x4 Defender SUV “coupe” that allowed us to see everything more clearly and in funnier way, always felling safe with the experienced driving skills of Rui.
Definitely a company, a guide and an experience that I fully recommend.

Amazing fun day with a great guide
Feb 2020
This is a trip not to be missed when you visit Madeira, amazing scenery (don't forget warm clothes when you go up into the mountains!) and so many photo opportunities. We were picked up/dropped off at the hotel and had Luis-David as our guide, he was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and we had great fun. The levada walk was short but interesting and the group photos were a lovely touch. Catching your own lunch at the trout lakes was brilliant and very tasty, as was all the food, in a lovely setting and we thoroughly enjoyed the fruits and berries that we tried along the way. I would recommend this trip without doubt.

What an amazing day!
Feb 2020
We went on a full day trip with Ruben to the east side of the island, and had an amazing day! We had so much fun and would definitely arrange for another trip the next time we visit Madeira. Ruben was the most perfect guide with such an amount of knowledge! He even knew all of the latin names of the plants and flowers. We highly recommend a tour with Ruben! The day was packed with stunning view and lots of fun. The part with the off-road-experience was fantastic. What a car and what a driver!

Fabulous trip!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Well worth doing the 4x4 East tour. Felt very safe and loved the off road experience. Our driver/guide Luis was knowledgeable and informative. We learnt so much about the area. Fishing for our own lunch was great too. Loved the trout farm and the owner gave an excellent account of the working of the farm - very motivational talk! The trip is well planned to include breaks too. Thank Luis for one of the best trips we have ever been on. Thank you also to the team of drivers who kept us all entertained throughout the day. Sarah and Jez Smith.

Jan 2020 • Couples
Our guide was louis, he was amazing. He really made this experience fun. He shared lots of local information and was very funny. We had plenty of time at the stops to take photos and enjoy the scenery. The 4x4 experience was great because we got to go through all the narrower roads a coach wouldn't be able to access. This means you get to see the real Madeira. Dinner was at the trout farm. Very informative and nice to see somewhere in this day and age thay makes use of nature instead of relying on machines and technology to do all the work. He explained all about how the farm works using nature and looking after our planet. If you eat fish you can catch your own dinner aswell. Just before dinner we had a nice walk through the forest, which was good to stretch your legs. It was a flat easy walk, although I would reccomend using good boots as there is quiet a few tree roots sticking out so have to watch where your walking, quiet a few people kept tripping over them. There was 6 people on our tour although I think the 4x4 could have upto 8 people, I think 6 is just the right number and 8 people could feel a bit crowded.
