Beautiful Madeira
Maria_L, May 2023
What a fabulous trip and our driver John was an absolute gem! He showed us all the beautiful scenery of Madeira and we had such a wonderful day. I would highly recommend this trip
Excellent company. James an excellent driver.
Michkacat, July 2022
My sisters and I did a tour of the north of the island. We had a very enjoyable day, made all the better by having James as our driver/guide. The off Road sections were great fun. James was very good at stopping to point out areas of interest, and also interesting flora. There was plenty of photo opportunities. He was an excellent driver, and I truly can't believe some of the roads he took us up, some were amazingly steep, and although 2 way were actually only wide enough for 1 car. This was the "true" Maderia, and we loved up. Unfortunately the sea pool/volcanic rock pools were cold, so although we went there we didn't go in. Only thing I can say against the tour was it said the entry to the pools were included, it wasn't, but still, entry was only €3 each, so not too much. We really enjoyed this tour. Another's great selling point to this company is the size of the vehicle. We were in a normal Land rover, which would take a max of 4 passengers. Some of the other tours we saw, while out, had bigger landrovers/jeeps with many more people crammed in them, which didn't look at all comfortable.
