Good day out giving a knowledgeable account of that area of Madeira. The minibus picked us up and dropped us at the hotel with a really comfortable drive around the island's steep and twisty roads. Excellent value for money.

Excellent from start to finish. Prompt pick-up and unhurried tour with very knowledgable and friendly driver/guide,Gama. Plenty of stops for refreshment/toilet breaks and souvenirs and photo opportunities. Highly recommend this trip.
