          Less traveled memories mixed with the headline ones!
          We booked the Central, North & East tour. The weather was great, our guide was terrific and very knowledgable. Nowhere was too busy (apart from the lunch stop). The route was well chosen and seeing less visited tracks and communities made the visit more memorable. Being able to ask the driver to stop at will to look at a plant was a joy. Thanks for a splendid day.

          Incredible experience
          Jon was our driver and what a fantastic tour guide of the island he was. We had the most amazing day with him. Our five night trip to Madeira was for my wife's 40th Birthday and we are so glad we booked this tour of the west side of the island. We also had our 4yr old daughter with us. She especially enjoyed the rough off road parts. We stopped at so many veiw points. And covered so much of the island. Far more then we expected. We stopped off for lunch and a swim which was amazing. And saw so many views and waterfalls. It was Honestly the most Incredible experience. Made all the better by our wonderful guide jon. Thankyou Madeira of road tours. It was an absolute pleasure We would love to visit the island again, and will be sure to do the east of the island tour next time

          Fun day exploring the island on and off road
          Easy to plan and book with prompt emails replies. John, our guide, met us at the cruise port for a fun tour. He was entertaining and enthusiastic and we saw more interesting sites than we have on other tours in Madeira. Highly recommend this tour company!

          Fantastic Tour and great guide
          We booked with Miguel a private tour for my wife and I only a week before we arrived in Funchal. The communication on what we wanted to see and do was easy to arrange and Miguel got back to us extremely quickly. We toured the West of the island and had a fantastic time. Miguel was very informative friendly and good fun. He is rightly very proud to show off his Island. We loved the tour soo much we booked with Miguel again whilst out on the trip for only a few days later to explore the East of the Island. Another fabulous trip. We totally recommend Miguel and his company. We went off road, saw fantastic views, tasted local fruits, avoided other tour groups, swam in the natural pools, wine tasted, stopped at local bars and saw what the Island had to offer. Avoid the large companies and book Miguel. An small example of the attention to detail, when we were out Miguel phoned ahead and booked lovely restaurants overlooking fantastic scenery and secured great tables which were ready and waiting. Great local food too! Thank you Miguel you made our holiday.

          Excellent off road tour of the West
          Our guide was Miguel. There were only two of us on this tour, we didn’t book private tour but this company still took two of us and didn’t cancel , which was very appreciated. Miguel takes pride of what he does and loves Madeira, you can definitely feel it on the tour. He is proud to tell you about Madeira history, flora, fauna, people. The tour was everything he hoped for and more. We would definitely recommend this company and Miguel in particular.

          Great experience
          We did the west and east tours with the same guide Miguel which was excellent. He did the tour in French especially for us. We learned a lot of things about the island, it was really interesting. We also had good recommendation for lunch time. I recommend this company and especially Miguel. If we come back we will definitely book another tour with him.

          Nothing in my life is topping this experience
          We had a tour of Eastern Madeira with Victor and we cannot say enough good things about it! The tour was incredible, informative and honestly made the whole trip worth it. Victor himself is lovely, so considerate and knowledgeable if he asked me to rob a bank I'd do it.... like, he'd make a cracking get away driver. The man climbed over a fence at a ravine to rescue my glasses, I'd nominate him for a Nobel peace prize. Madeira is a place you have to experience in person and if you're going there, this is the tour you need to do.

          Great to explore the island
          Very nice tour with John. Any question: he has an answer. Beautiful landscape and views you cannot explore with a rented car. The wonderful smell of eucalyptus trees and flowers in the forest was astonishing! Thank you!

          A unique way to experience a beautiful island
          Really good day out today with our very knowledgeable guide James. We did the West and North tour. We were a total of two couples in the land Rover - great to meet Sasha and Anastasia from Belarus. We saw some amazing scenery and my husband had a swim in the volcanic rock pool at Porto Moniz amongst other things. James was a fun and informative guide and an excellent driver. We are in our 70's but really enjoyed the off-road bits! All in all, an excellent experience. Thoroughly recommend.

          Highlight of our holiday
          We were recommended this tour by our friends who recently came out to Madeira a few weeks before us, he told us that we needed to go on this tour and ask for John. Me and my partner went with my mum and dad who wouldn’t ordinarily do this sort of thing on holiday and they loved it and it was the highlight of their trip as well as ours. He is so informative, funny and couldn’t of done enough for us. He was happy to take our photos as well as a group. We did a private Madeira wine and off road tour which took 3.5. Next time we will do a full day tour! Thanks again John, from Laura, Billy, Steve and Caroline :)

          10/10 excursion, so much fun, knowledge guide Manuel! East Coast full day tour
          AMAZING EXCURSION!!! Manuel our guide was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable, fun and took the time to show us all the little important things the East Coast can offer. Standing up in the jeep overlooking the clouds was the highlight of the trip. It was amazing to visit all the local low-key spots that was not packed with tourists. We had the best Poncha on our trip. 100% should do if visiting the beautiful island of Madeira

          10/10 would recommend!
          Miguel is an amazing tourguide. We couldn’t have asked for a better one. He knows a lot about the island and shares the knowledge in a compelling way, while being able to not overload you with information. We also loved the flexibility of the tour and it’s up to the group how much time you want at each spot. Would also definitely recommend including the 14 euro lunch. We were scared that it would be a cheap “local” bad lunch like most tours, but it was actually worth way more than the 14 euro and at a lovely modern location. 10/10 would recommend!

        We booked two vehicles for a group of nine and we all had a great day, the drivers were fun and full of lots of interesting facts about Madeira.

        We were able to tailor the tour as it was a private booking and we enjoyed the sea water pools in particular as well as the off road driving.

        We were able to take lots of photos stopping off at various points of interest around the island

        would 100% recommend to anyone thinking of booking

        We booked the “whole day off road experience” and we were not disappointed! Miguel our guide was fantastic, really friendly and very knowledgable. We were picked up from our hotel and taken all over the island and right up to the top! Madeira is breathtaking and the scenery changes so much as you go higher and higher , we explored the forests, little villages right up in the mountains, saw beautiful views of the sea , had a nice lunch stop and swim in the volcanic rock pools , we went right up to the top of the island and the views were spectacular ! Be prepared for some very high winding roads and hairpin bends, but we didn’t feel unsafe at all with Miguel’s driving.
        The ride gets very bumpy when we went off road for a while , but it added to the fun of it all !
        We definitely recommend this company and would go again!
        Thanks so much for a lovely day

        A brilliant day out with spectacular scenery. We were picked up and dropped off by the tour guide (Miguel) right outside our door. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Madeira as it’s the best way to see the many amazing features the island has to offer.

        Thank you so much Victor for showing is what we wouldn't have been able to see by ourselves !
        We did a private tour with Madeira off road, only the two of us, and it was such a blast in our trip.
        We wanted to avoid the big company with 10 jeeps going at the same place at the same time, and go with a more familiar one and that's exactly what we got.
        Victor was passionate about his island and gave us so many tips and advices for our trip. He was devoted and dedicated and we Wouldn't recommend him enough.
        The views were increeible, he took us off road and away from the touristic places and we saw so many things in just one day.
        We'll absolutely go back next year for an other trip !

        Four of us had an adventure on December 23rd 2022 that we will remember forever. We specified in advance what wanted to see and what we wished to do. Our Driver/Guide was John and we were picked up at our hotel. Our day was tailored to our desired stops at Cabo Girao, Ponta Do Sol, Porto Moniz & Seixel, interspersed with gentle thrills along with some off-road slides through forests (amid cries of “Yee Hah”) and through many steep, narrow and bumpy mountain roads that I’d never dream of taking my own vehicle on. As the tour was specific to our wishes, we toured at our own pace and stopped where we wanted to. We saw awesome coastal scenery bathed in sunshine, mysterious mountains shrouded in clouds, and colossal waterfalls. We even drove through a waterfall in our open topped vehicle (but only got slightly wet!). We had a lovely Poncha break in the morning and great lunch in Porto Moniz.
        John was an excellent guide – fantastic sense of humour and used his extensive knowledge base to answer our questions on Plants, Crops, Customs, History, Geology, Transport, Whatever... It is amazing how quickly 7 hours passes when you are continually having fun; and we were dropped off at our hotel with lasting memories of a great adventure. I waited 3 months to post this review to confirm it really was as good as it was.

        I booked this adventure as a surprise for my wife during our honeymoon. We had this tour on our first day on the island. It is THE BEST way to get to know the island quickly. We took the west side tour and John was so enthusiastic. So much passion and joy in what he does and wants to show. My wife showed interest in the cows and plants, John picked that up quickly and adjusted his tour to this. You know when the ride will be extra full fun when John shouts “yeeh hoo!“. A ride to never forget.

        If you are visiting Madeira I cannot recommend this experience highly enough. We saw the most spectacular scenery Madeira has to offer, with a local tour guide (Miguel) who was very knowledgable and very easy going. There was never any rush, and he made sure we got the absolute best out of the tour. We were even picked up from our apartment and supplied with lunch. A top class experience!

        Unfortunately, the horrible fires shut down the western side of the island. But John came up with a wonderful last-minute all day tour for me and my wife on the eastern side. He worked so hard to accommodate us and called so many places to get us lunch reservations, which was difficult because all the tourists were on the east. Very friendly and happy person who will go above and beyond to give you a good experience.

        We were visiting via cruise ship, and John picked us up right at the port. I could never say enough about this awesome tour guide, he taught us so much in that seven hours about the culture, the villages, the agriculture, we wanted to move there after this awesome tour!! Even with some inclement weather, he found ways to show us different aspects of each part of the island. I could go on and on about how awesome this trip was, but I will tell anyone reading reviews do not hesitate to book a private tour. You will feel like a VIP, and you will get the best views and information about this beautiful island.!!!!

        We were fortunate to have a 1/2 day private tour on the north side of Madeir and a full day tour with John on the West! There aren’t words to describe this trip! The guys are incredible! We had so much fun learning about this beautiful place, visiting local spots, being on roads we would NEVER attempt. I would recommend them to anyone visiting Madeira that wants a truly unique and beautiful experience!! Obrigada Miguel and John!!!
