Desfrute de uma bonita e agradável excursão ao longo da costa noroeste da Ilha da Madeira, nas profundezas da floresta, através de estradas esquecida e encantadas. Viaje ao longo de vias estreitas e esquecidas feitas de pedra e aprecie a paisagem. Obtenha um vislumbre da verdadeira alma que nos dá vida. Quando o clima permitir, em Porto Moniz ou na Praia de Areia Preta do Seixal, você poderá aproveitar o calor das águas dos mares portugueses.
Have to say this is one of the best tours we have ever been on. Pick up was exactly as agreed and our guide, Nuno, was superb throughout the day. He has unbelievable knowledge of the island and made several unplanned stops throughout the day to highlight native species of plants, waterfalls and other points of interest. The off-road section of the tour was brilliant, expect a lot of bumps along the way, but surely that's the point of off-roading. Can't believe how we crammed so much into one day, and every stop had a reason, to see something new and varied - so many more opportunities in a smaller vehicle to take routes a coach could never travel. Once again a brilliant day, well planned, good company and an exceptional guide. Very highly recommended.
Pick up at the hotel was on time and as it turned out I was the only person on this tour. It was a rainy day and my guide, Nelson, was excellent. We went up into the mountains for some serious off-roading and splashing due to the weather. It was cold that day but really enjoyable just the same. My guide was very knowledgeable and really took great of me. If you only choose one tour in which to see what the island is all about, this is the one. The waterfalls and views throughout were spectacular. We covered so much ground that day I really felt like I knew the island.
Oops, Nuno did this tour and Rue did the enchanted terrace tour. Both guides were amazing. Since I talked about Nuno is the last review, this time I will talk about Rue. He was extremely helpful making sure everyone was safe and was able to do the Levada walk. He even gave my husband his walking stick to use. He had flashlights for everyone. Wonderful guide, very personable and would highly recommend the tour and him. Please realize that I flipped the enchanted terrace review and the levada 25 fountain review, but both guides were fantastic and both tours were also fantastic.
Highly recommend this trip! It was absolutely incredible, did some off-roading, intro to Levada walks, saw lots of waterfalls, wonderful sights and magnificent views.
We did s few day trips during our holiday and this was definitely the best one.
First off, the guide himself was excellent -- friendly and helpful. No complaints there. The description of the tour on the site however has cost two stars... The tour description currently reads Full-day private tour. We assumed -- like other private tours we'd taken -- that meant that it was private. In fact, we shared with another couple. Also not mentioned, and would have made us reconsider, there's more than an hour driving over seriously rocky roads where you'll be properly shaken around as the car squeaks around at 10mph. Probably would have been fun for 20 minutes, but it's safe to say we were simply enduring that for the most part. On a cloudy day there's also just nothing to see during this part. If you're happy with sharing, and you're happy with some seriously seriously bumpy off-road parts, I'd recommend this tour. If you're not, you may find yourself misled by the description. The scenery visited was excellent.
Superbe découverte de l'ouest de l'île. Avec cette excursion, vous ne passez pas du tout par les chemins traditionnels, le guide se fait un plaisir de vous faire découvrir ce qui est local ! C'est vraiment un tour typique de l'île avec un guide personnalisé on était 5 et on pouvait être maximum 6. Le guide était très sympathique, a pris le temps de tout expliqué et nous a réellement emmené dans des endroit où nous ne croisions pas ou peu de touriste. Cela nous a permis par la suite d'aller nous promener ou nous baigner dans des endroits plus calmes et naturels. Attention toutefois aux Francophones, nous avions demandé l'excursion en Français et nous étions avec 3 anglais. Le guide parlait très bien français mais tout le temps traduire, c'était embêtant pour tout le monde je parle anglais donc finalement on l'a fait en anglais mais si vous avez des difficultés, n'hésitez pas à leur dire
My tour was well worth the price for a great overview of the Northwest side of Madeira. My guide Fernando was amazing. He went above and beyond to explain all the different flora, history and culture of the island. We traveled routes where the where I didn't see other tours.
It was really good. Got to some places that we would never have discovered for ourselves, or been able to get to by coach or minibus. Guide very knowledgeable about Madeira and the local geology, plants and history. Lovely lunch and amazing rock pools.
