It was our first visit to Madeira and wanted to do something different from the usual coach tour and after reading reviews decided to go for the trike tour. Well it was certainly different and an experience we will remember for a long time. There was some doubt if we would reach Madeira as the weather wasn't good en-route but we did. Before we started our tour there were a number of showers but we were provided with waterproofs and a helmet which proved to be invaluable during the tour. We were told that some routes were closed but we still managed to make it up to one viewpoint experiencing hail and strong winds as well as falling branches on the way. The views were spectacular as was a further hailstorm. We then ventured lower down and stopped at another viewpoint before moving onto the Cabo Girao skywalk which is definitely worth a visit. From here we went to Camara de Lobos for a snack, it is a beautiful little port. Our last visiting point was to Cristo Rei which is a smaller version of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro although it was completed 4 years earlier. We then made our way back to where we had started. Special thanks to Steve, our driver, and George for making it a memorable day and we would definitely recommend this.
Wow what can i say. What an amazing trip. George was such a lovely person. He helped my mum who walks with a stick throughout the whole trip. He is very imformative. George took us to some beautiful places. Even though we had rain wind and hail stones it was a fantastic day. Cant wait to do it again. Thank you George. Tracey & Christine.
