Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We checked the weather forecast and booked in advance as it's difficult to get the space for next day. The catamaran was clean and spacious and the crew was amazing. There is plenty to drink and eat. What is most important we have seen dolphins in their natural habitat! Unfortunately we run out of time, so there was no swimming. Be aware that you might experience sea sickness (as I did), but I was looked after amazingly by the staff.

    We went with Philip on a full-day trip to the North West. Having such an experienced guide made all the difference. We saw the locals at an interesting fishing village. Went to the top of Europe's highest cape for some amazing views. Afterward, the guide drove us on narrow roads with impressive precision and skill. We went to the northern part of the island at a nice sand beach while chasing waves, had a great lunch, and socialized with the group at Porto Moniz. The high point was going off-road along forest paths before heading higher up into the mountain and returning home. Philip is friendly and keeps it both informative and fun. All in all a great experience.

    We booked this tour last minute, not expecting much but this was one of the best experiences in Madeira. Our Guide Diogo Pinto put in so much effort in explaining all the history and at the same time showed some excellent driving skills :) This is a tour we’ll never forget!

    We can wholeheartedly recommend the whale and dolphin watching cruise with On Tales. Organization was perfect, the crew members were supportive and kind. The boat was cool and comfortable. We were lucky enough to see the dolphins but even if we hadn’t we would be still delighted. We’re already looking forward to our next cruise on Miranda. Best wishes to all On Tales team! ❤️

    A true off road experience with all the bumps and vertigo, if you suffer! Excellent driving and knowledge, particularly of the flora of Madeira. We forwent lunch in favour of swimming in the lava pools at Porto Moniz. We stopped at the black sand beach at Seixal but only 30mins, and in hindsight would have spent longer at the lava pools at Fanal. Do take your swim clothes! A great day. Would recommend.

    This was probably one of the best tours I've ever been on. Luis was a fantastic guide with a wealth of knowledge. I saw all the 'highlights' of Madeira. When I go back to Madeira I'll definitely use this company again.

    Nuno was a great guide. We had a good small group excursion, stopped at beautiful little towns, and had good conversation along the way. For the duration of the trip and the amount of the island that you get to explore, this is a great deal. Enjoy!

    This was a lovely, relaxing way to spend an evening in Madeira. The weather let us down a bit as it was very cloudy so we didn’t see the sunset but it was a warm evening for the time of year so we still had a very enjoyable cruise. Although we have been to Madeira several times before we’ve never seen it from the sea at night – truly amazing.

    Paulo provided us with detailed instructions on how to get to the pier in the marina to meet him & he looked after us really well during the cruise. Wine, beer & soft drinks plus snacks are provided.

    If you would like music on your cruise then you can use a playlist from your phone or Paulo has some music available.

    Excellent fun and informative day out on private tour with John who could not have been more enthusiastic about everything associated with Madeira and off-road.
    We enjoyed every minute including his excellent recommendation for lunch.
