Rodolfo was an excellent tour guide for what turned out to be a custom trip around Funchal and the small fishing village. Convertible VW beetle was the carriage that I was picked up in and I was tired and jet lagged, we changed the tour a bit to suit my needs which was great. Was lovely to go to a local place and see the fishing village.
Would highly recommend and would do again.

Picked up on time from our hotel in a convertible VW Beetle. Rodolfo our driver and owner of the company was friendly and extremely informative right from the start of the trip. Our first stop allowed us to walk through a little village and see the doors covered in artwork made from aluminium cans, as opposed to the painted doors. We had our first taste of Poncha made in a little fisherman’s bar. From there we had a drive to the highest point and the glass viewing platform. We stopped at other points of interest on the way through.

On the way back down we had another Poncha stop and I had an amazing drink made from pineapple ice cream and passion fruit syrup.

Apart from the great service, having the tour to ourselves meant we did not have to wait around for anyone and were never rushed or squashed in with other people. We were dropped back at the hotel.

If you want to try something different from the normal tours, definitely take this one .
Thank you Rodolfo.

Lovely half day drive with a friendly, knowledgeable driver. My husband has some mobility problems but this trip was ideal and the driver (I can’t remember his name) was very patient.

It was like driving with a family member in a vintage beetle. Beautifull sights. Good poncha en great places. The fishing village was so beautifull. Miguel was a hearty guy, patient and so informative.
