Managed to arrange for another tour with Carlos before I leave the beautiful island, which has so much to offer. And it was amazing! Will definitely recommend Carlos to anyone who wants to experience Madeira like a local.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, hope to see you very soon :)

Went on the Verede do Areeiro trail with Carlos who was both patient and encouraging. The trail was a challenge for someone like me who only works out in the gym (no amount of lunges, step ups and squats prepared me for this), but it was so rewarding. The views at different points are spectacular. It's not possible to take bad photos on this trail.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pey Chi for the review, it was simple perfect day indeed with amazing experiences!

This was our fourth tour with Carlos during our 10 day trip to Madeira. This was a lovely levada walk that Carlos chose for us which we really enjoyed. He brought us early to the trail so as to avoid the crowds. On the same tour we went to Santana, and visited gorgeous viewpoints in the north. He tailored our trip throughout the day....he's very good at figuring out what we like.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the time spent together, it was a pleasure and really fun to have the opportunity to guide you, see you next year.

So we arrived a little shaky after warnings of late or cancelled flights due to thunder storms but Carlos contacted me to ask if we were all ok. He said a few walks may need to be amended due to landslides but I felt totally confident in him due to previous conversations and his knowledge. I have done many tours with this group and this one I believe was the best. From the moment they met him they loved him and found him respectful, funny an kind. The tour was so beautiful and breathtaking. plus very safe

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, your group was really great to work with, see you next year.

We had a wonderful hike with Carlos and he went out of his way to show us as much as he could of the area and to introduce us to the local food and wine. A wonderful introduction to Madeira.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Hilary, it was a great day, I learned a lot with both of you, see you next year, Carlos

My sister and I really enjoyed our time with Carlos. The experience was better than expected. It was our first day after arrival in Madeira, and Carlos was everything a good guide should be and more! He was very aware of the hiking conditions of the levada and safety was always paramount. At the same time he was fun, knowledgeable about the plants and trees, and really patient as we stopped so many times to take photos. Thank you so much Carlos! It was so much fun!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review, hope to see you very soon here in this Paradise, life is just good, Carlos

The tour was great. Carlos is a very knowledgeable and eager to help us to see as much as possible. We had a private tour guide - driver 2 times in Sesimbra in 2014 and 2016. It was excellent. That's why we decided on a private tour guide this time as well. And Carlos deserves the highest rating. Well done, Carlos!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, I wish all the best for you both, Carlos
