This tour was terrific. Carlos took me on a walk on the Levadas. So beautiful. We explored many other sites and he provided helpful information all along the way. The North Coast is very special and must be seen to be believed. Stunning. Carlos even knows all the flora and fauna along the way! He loves his home and it shows.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, hope to see you soon next year

We had a wonderful day with Carlos on our tour of the "wild north" of Madeira. He is an skillful and safe driver. No small thing on the narrow winding roads of the island! He has fantastic knowledge and knows very much about the island. It is a pleasure to listen to his stories. He carefully plans the journey since the weather can sometimes be a bit tricky. He goes to great length tomake trip your stay in Madeira most enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Peter for the review, it was a wonderful day for all, hope to see you next year.
Daniel WellsSaluda, NC, United States
Fantastic tour of local and North Coast area. People with some handicaps should book Carlos for he will show you the best sites on the Island with the least amount of walking. He is helpful and you get to see sights that Normal Tour Bus tours can not reach. His choice of sites and restaurants are exceptional. Cruise company tours spent time in areas with clouds and rain and Carlos spent our time in the Sunny areas of the North Coast. When eating try the local special fish Espada and Limpet clams.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Daniel for your kind words, is always a hole in the middle of the rain that we can always shine. Hope to see you next year.

Carlos was fantastic. He was waiting for us when we disembarked our cruise ship and proceeded to show us so many wonderful places and offer us so many wonderful experiences. I had asked him to combine some things from 2 different tours and he went above and beyond! He filled our whole time with sights and activities and still had us back to the ship in perfect time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, it was a remarkable day full of fun to be remembered forever :)

Carlos is an excellent tour guide. Very informed, patient and always willing to accommodate our needs on todays tour. What an awesome experience with this thorough gentleman. We are so looking forward to our next tour with him on monday to the west side of the island of Madeira. Anyone looking for a tour guide in Madeira .... i guarantee you will not be dissapointed with Carlos.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It has been great moments of full joy, it's a pleasure to guide all your family around my Paradise

The Levadas are something you come to Madeira to see but we had so much more than the regular tourists as we were taken to areas that they don't normally go with beautiful waterfalls, shaded woodland and quaint forests. This tour was a little more relaxed but we were offered the choice to walk further and did. Carlos was always flexible with the tour if it was safe and everyone was happy. I was the group leader and we worked very well together making decisions which can be difficult for a tour leader.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the opportunity, trust and confidence. Together we did wonders, see you next year, Carlos
Lyle ShoostineUnited States
Carlos is a great tour guide. There are so many beautiful vistas on Madeira Island, Carlos knows where to go and the ride is never boring, always with breathtaking views. One piece of advice.... throw away your tour books and guides.... Carlos will take you to one of the many beautiful beaches of Madeira (yes, they exist) if you want to go for a swim and take you to a restaurant for lunch where the locals dine. A nature walk through the forest is both peaceful and adventurous.... you will enjoy it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review and also for sharing all those magical moments together, see you next year.
Tudor ThomasUnited Kingdom
