Private tour guide Nicolau

Nicolau C.

Funchal, Madeira, Portugal

OLÁ. My name is Nicolau, I am 26 years, born and raised in Madeira.

I love my heritage and island. . I can say that I live in one of the best and most beautiful places in the world. . not only the nature but our people and traditions.

I actually lived outside Madeira for a while. . but couldn't stand it. . Just started to work in this area about 3 years ago, and about a year on my own. .

the reason I started doing this by my own was because I saw that the people that visit our island didn't see what was really important. . just going to all the touristic places. . and doing the same boring stuff that every tourist do. . I wanted to be free to give you the taste of a local!!

I already Had my jeep, my first car ever. . and I used to do it just for fun. . so. . now I will take you with me and share the best of our island.

I love my car is a classic UMM jeep, convertible, completely restored and a great machine. .

This tour it is for the people who really want to explore the island in a relaxed calm way, learn about our culture and history. . drink and eat in the real local places. . simple and humble. . some of the places are not restaurants of fancy places. . but they are always very good and special!

Hope to count on you, so I can keep to fulfill my purpose. . showing to you the real Madeira!!

A Recent Review of this guide

Nico is amazing and his jeep his the best way to see Madeira hands down. If you love to get off the tourist path and see the island as locals live, you have to book this tour. He speaks perfect English and his local knowledge is unbeatable. We LOVED this tour!!!!! He even helped us pick out some local wine to take back and it was amazing too. This is a can't miss tour if you love to see the heart of the culture and not just the tourist spots
