This was our second enjoyable tour with Carlos. Unfortunately for us it was a somewhat rainy day but Carlos did his best (providing some umbrellas too) to show us all the places we were scheduled to see and it turned out to be a very fruitful trip after all. Carlos is very fluent in English, has a good sense of humour and has a thorough knowledge of all the points of interest in Madeira. I recommend his services to anyone interested in taking a private tour by locals in Madeira.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, it was very funny and plesant to guide all of you. See you next year.

If I could rate Carlos as a "20", I would! My fiance and I had the most amazing private tour in Madeira, and we were just floored by the level of professionalism and fun that Carlos exhibited with putting our personalized tour together. He actually gave us 4 different tours in a day, at an incredibly affordable price. He even went as far as having a birthday cake and picnic planned for my fiance's 50th birthday that day! Forget the Trip Advisor or Viator tours.....get an amazing custom tour with Carlos!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a really great day with such amazing couple. Lots of fun and wonderful shared moments, I hope all the best for you two. See you next year, Carlos

Carlos is FANTASTIC! Use his guiding services. He is an irreplaceable asset to make your travel experience perfect in Portugal. He is the best guide I have ever used ANYWHERE. Staying away from crowded areas, per our request, he revealed the rugged beauty of his home island with expert skill. He can solve any problem and enables fun. Just to prove he could do it, he delivered items to our ship that had already departed.....2000% ABOVE any expectations! WOW! WOW! WOW!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review Brian. When we love the work we do, everything turns out easy and at the same time a lot of doors open for us. Looking forward to see you next year ;)

Carlos was a fantastic tour guide. He was prompt, courteous with excellent English and VERY knowledgeable! The day before we arrived, I emailed him to ask if we could bring friends along, that we had met on our cruise and he cheerfully obliged us. We saw the most beautiful scenery of our entire trip in Madeira, we did go" above the clouds" as advertised! And the restaurant he took us to for lunch was fabulous! Our day with Carlos was one of the highlights of our trip!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure for me to have such company in such marvelous day. Hope to see you next year, Carlos

Carlos was fun to spend a day with. He was knowledgeable about Madeira and made it interesting despite the rainy weather! He took us to many places off the beaten track and ensured we left with great memories of his country. It was a real pleasure. Thanks Carlos!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm glad that you liked as I did! Both of you are really interesting people to talk with. If you didn't have the cruise we could speak all evening! Thank you again, hope to see you once more in my Paradise, Carlos

Carlos was a true professional in his delivery of service and for the tour which he conducted on the 9th of December in Funchal, Madeira. My husband and I were picked up promptly from our cruise ship and then escorted to his transportation to see all the highlights and key sites on the island. Carlos provided us with a deep understanding and history of the people and geography of Madeira and insights in the culture. His style was funny and personal and he felt very comfortable with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great pleasure to have you both has company. Looking forward to see you again in you next visit to our Paradise. Thank You!
