        Excellent service from start to finish
        Excellent service from booking to communication to punctuality to interesting commentary from both of the drivers we met this week (Thank you, Miguel and Diogo). We thoroughly enjoyed both of our hikes despite the first being slightly curtailed due to landslide. However the communication was excellent and we were offered alternative hikes or a full refund. We would not hesitate to recommend Pico Transfers to anyone wishing to enjoy a stress free experience of visiting Madeira’s best known hiking trails.

        Quick to refund for short notice cancellation
        Cancelled transfer with short notice. Gave quick refund and 48 hour notice so we were able to rebook with another company but not transparent about reason for cancellation. Stated weather but we were able to rebook same transfer with another company so speculate it was because not enough people signed up. At least gave 48 hour notice so we could replan but not nicest way to spend the time immediately after landing in Funchal.

        Highly recommend sunrise hike
        It’s a fantastic hike and the organisers were fantastic. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. We had plenty of time for rests and didn’t worry much about being on type for the pick up at the end.

        Best sunrise transfer
        Everything was great, we enjoyed conversation about Madeira with Miguel, learned interesting things and he was able to answer to our questions. Everything went as planned. We saw the best sunrise in our lives. I would definitely recommend this transfer and do this hike on Madeira Island.

        Unrealistic schedule
        The driver arrived at time to pick us up. The schedule of the trip is not realistic only if you hurry up and don’t enjoy the views, mountains, sun rise and the hike itself. We are trained 100kg and 125kg and of course for our weight it’s much more difficult the hike. So we need more time. At the end we couldn’t arrive on time for departure because of the, for us, unrealistic schedule. So of course the driver has to drive away so that we needed to call a taxi. Instead of helping us tourists how to call a taxi, we needed to solve this problem by ourself. 2/5 Stars

        Levada transfers from Funchal.
        Really easy to book transfers to the most popular levada hikes. Perfect communication the day before you start your trip. You really feel comfortable as soon as you get in one of their well maintained mini vans.

        Breath-taking hike in breath-taking sceneries
        The trip was absolutely stunning! Early wake-up call, then Kevin (thanks for the expert guidance on the way!) took us to the summit of Pico Areeiro to see the absolutely breath-taking sunrise from above the clouds. After sunrise we started the hike to Pico Ruivo (and eventually to Teixeira), some 11 km in Hobbit-like sceneries, really stunning views all the way! The route is pretty tough physically, don't need to be super athletic to complete it but be aware that it's not your typical walk in the park. Absolutely recommendable, one of the best trips in my whole life!

        THE BEST WAY HOW TO START YOUR TRIP TO PICO
        Don't think twice and take this opportunity to get to know not only Pico do Aireiro, but the whole of Madeira before the sun rises! A very friendly driver with lots of experience will be happy to chat with you and safely guide you to your first steps on the mountain. Plus - as the trip is quite physically demanding - the pick up in Achado is a really nice ending (no need to go back to the beginning). The pickup is always on time, no problem, with a smile. Love it!

        Excellent transfer and hike
        Had an excellent time. Our driver Ulisses was very friendly and I would recommend the transfer to reach the hike! Pick up from the start and end was very timely and the walk is incredible. The communication from the company is also excellent.

        Highly recommend
        Highly recommend this for doing the Pico to Pico hike. We were collected and dropped back off at our hotel in Sao Martinho. Gave you plenty of time to do the full walk, whilst still being able to stop for multiple breaks and to take plenty of pictures. Without a doubt the most efficient way of doing the hike and it is definitely worth getting up slightly earlier to do the sunrise transfer!

      Simple, uncomplicated, on time, easy to contact. The driver was very nice and made the ride up to the mountains joyful. Picked up all of us right outside our hotels. You’ll have time to take pictures and enjoy a long lunch break. Great way to get up to the mountains, definitely recommend 👍🏻

      The hike, surprisingly easy. Had great wether, but would recommend waterproof and non slippery shoes since it’s water puddles in the tunnels.

      It’s a great idea and very well organised by professional people. Driver Felipe was brilliant. What they don’t tell you is that this is really weather dependent and if you go on a day with low visibility you see absolutely nothing and it’s a waste of a day. Cold and rain are fine but if the visibility is poor it’s not much fun. The walk looks like it would brilliant on the right day. It seems that the weather is often poor up there so pick very carefully.

      Thank you for your review! Unfortunately, an unstable forecast is normal in the Maderia mountains when a change of season is happening. And even though we use many tools to have a prediction and give the best possible service, the forecasts can fail, and we can't control the weather! But I am happy that you had a great experience during our service, the transfer.

      Pico Transfers is an idiot-proof way to get to Pico Areiro. We had a great experience with our driver Ulisses. He picked us up on time and explained the route, how much time was needed to do the hike with plenty of time to process the jaw-dropping terrain, what time to head to the pick-up point at Achada do Teixeira after checking out the summit of Pico Ruivo and where to enjoy a poncha at the end. On the way back, Ulisses took us through Santana. Would highly recommend!

      Thank you very much for this amazing experience! Very professional and punctual staff, super friendly guide - we learned a lot of interesting facts about Madeira during the car transfer service.
      Also, the hike was well presented - we had enough time to finish the hike at our own pace and enjoy a beer until the pick-up time. Everything was perfect. Totally recommended this activity! ❤️

      Terrific trip from start to finish. Transport was excellent. Diogo our driver arrived exactly as arranged, is a very competent driver on tricky roads and gave us good advice about the walk itself. The hike from Pico Do Arriero was quite challenging for us 70 yr olds but the views were breathtaking. Excellent value for money and a great way to see one of the most spectacular landscapes we have walked.

      Watching the sunset at Pico Do Ariero and hiking to Pico Ruivo is a must if you are in Madeira, en with Pico Transfers it's the easiest and most optimal way!

      They pick you up at your accommodation, drop you off at Pico Do Areiro and pick you up again at Teixeira, so you don't have to hike all the way back to the starting point. The communication was excellent: I was informed about the pick-up location and time (well ahead!), the weather conditions and even given advice over the type of clothes that are recommended during this hike (+ information about what stores sell these type of clothes). The ride to and back from the summit was fun, our driver has a lot of knowledge about and love for Madeira and that was definitely something you could tell.

      The sunset was beautiful and the view from the hike was totally worth it.

      Definitely recommend doing this!

      You get a message the day before the hike with a photo of the map, information and weather updates.
      The bus was bang on time and the driver, Ulisses was brilliant. He was friendly and answered all our questions. He put us right at ease.

      The walk is TOUGH! But worth it.
      My biggest advice is to do it towards he end of your holiday. We did it on the first day which meant we had very sore legs for the rest of the trip…!!!
      Id recommend you have some level of fitness and experience of long/steep hikes.
      Trust the weather advice and wear appropriate clothing!

      The views you get to see are breathtaking. It’s a once in a life time opportunity to see something like this!

      We booked with Pico transfers as we had read good reviews and they most certainly did not disappoint! Our driver/guide Lùis was fantastic and answered any questions that anybody in the group had on the drive up or back. The group was a nice small group travelling that morning. Overall brilliant experience. Would advise to book in advance as places book quickly!

      Please do these hike, it's pretty amazing. You need a little bit luck to catch good wheather, sometimes it will be very cloudy and you cant see these wonderful nature, so check the daily prognose before you start! I also recommend to be well prepared, the hike is pretty long and not so easy to manage because a lot of stairs have to be done, also it could be very cold up there.

      Picked up on time at my accommodation, friendly driver who offered some interesting comments on what we saw on the drive there and back, and provided information about the walk. A lovely way to get to and from the walk. 5 hrs was plenty of time to complete it at a leisury pace and many stops to take photos. Stunning scenery. The driver was on time to collect us at the other end.
