Full day sightseeing tour.

This tour is ideal for those who want to see as much as possible of Madeiran East coast. Our guide Guma showed us a lot more places than was on tour description. He also was very polite and recommended where to eat in Santana. This company also organizes tour to the west coast, but unfortunately we didn't have time to visit it.Thank you very much, highly recommended!
Great views and information

Interesting day winding up and down the mountains. So many different views, along with interesting facts and figures from our friendly guide, translating perfectly into two languages, and giving us a smooth drive. Beautiful island trip with wonderful lunch stop at a really good price.
Excellent tour

Tour guide spoke good English and had good knowledge about the area as he was from Santana, his name was Gama. Thankyou Gama for a lovely tour in your homeland. Only gripe would be the 1 and half hour stop for lunch. 1 hour would have been plenty a little too long not a lot to see. The rest of the tour had some spectacular breathtaking views. Would definitely recommend as we have booked tours in other countries ourselves and we always choose Viator.

Weather was against us. Low cloud and rain in the mountains but despite this an excellent day out. Diego was a knowledgeable guide and made the day enjoyable.

Truly an exceptional tour guide though I can't remember his name. He was able to easily converse with all members of the tour in their native tongue-moving easily between English and Portuguese. We were allowed time at each location to explore on our own but he pointed out the highlights ahead of time so we wouldn't miss anything. I'm glad I went on this tour. You will be too.

Great tour! Went up the mountains and above the clouds! The basket factory was a great place to visit and all the various viewpoints we stopped at were amazing. Stopped at a lovely restaurant in Santana which had chicken and beef BBQ'ed on skewers! Best meal we had during the holiday.
