Private Tour for Everyone with a local guide


We start in Funchal and drive to the best two sightseeing above Funchal. Later on, going up, in direction to the third highest point of Madeira Island, we drink and eat local handmade products. There we can admire a perfect 360 degrees view around the highest peaks of the island. We can also make a light walk to feel more deep all the nature of this Paradise, above the clouds.
Descending we get in contact with the Madeira forest with a light walk of 3 km, all flat, to discover how all the ecosystem happens.
After, we give a rest to all those marvelous impressions and we go for a local restaurant to try fresh local food and drinks.
In our way back, we stop in some more sightseeings and we finish in the place that we started.

A Recent Review of this tour

I have owned a Travel Agency since 2005 and I have to tell you that Carlos took us on one of the best tours I have been on in my life. Our cruise was re-routed changing dates and port times and Carlos made sure that we saw what we wanted to see during our abbreviated stay in Madeira after arriving later in the day than expected. He was a true professional, a wonderful local, a passionate ambassador of the island, and just an all around great sport touring a travel agency owner around. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
