Private Tour for Wine Lovers with a local guide
We first drive to the best viewpoint above Funchal, to enjoy its great views. Then we start with the first winery located in Funchal and we proceed to second with a tasting wine tour very close to the first.
After the tasting we move to the our vineyards above Câmara de Lobos. Here we have a option to visit a third winery.
Continuing to the east, we pass Caniço and Machico towns where we could stop for all picturesque panorama views. Later on, we drive to the North-East, and arrive to Porto da Cruz, a lovely village often considered as the best village of the old type of grapes.
We walk around the village and then we visit a local cellar, with 17 and 27 years old wine tasting. Also we could have a chance to visit a Distilery of Aguardente - the local Madeiran rum made from sugar cane.
After this magic moments we go for a local restaurant to have a traditional Madeiran lunch, with seafood, or "espetada" (local barbecue style).
On the way back more stops could happen if the time allows it.

Carols was an excellent guide. Punctual, professional and polite, friendly knowledgeable and helpful. He guided us around the rich and varied vistas around Madeira, and took us to vineyards and Madeira wine producers - and we learnt lots and really enjoyed his company and trip.
