Had a great time on this tour - Jeff was fun and full of good info about the island, and we covered a lot of ground, but it never felt rushed. He also knew the places to go that were less packed with tourists and had amazing views. Recommended!

Fantastic tour where Hugo showed us the highlights (and some exciting extras) of Madeira's East Coast. We tried to book the West tour after this one but there was no availability before we left. We will be back though!
