Date: Apr 17/18

Carlos provided a fun and enjoyable private tour for my wife and me. He focused as promised on wine but added excellent stops for scenic photos and a unique lunch at which we sampled limpets (delicious). Carlos is very personable and shared many fascinating details about his life on Madeira. The several wine stops varied from conventional (a stop in downtown Funchal) to the rustic ( a single proprietor in his basement) to the magnificent ( an appointment with a major producer with no public tasting room).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was indeed a remarkable day, combined with great weather, scenery and the wine tour itself added with your great company, thank you. Hope to see you next year.

We enjoyed our tour with Carlos. He was very friendly and took us around to many different places. It was the day after Christmas so some of the places were closed, but we still enjoyed the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, it was my pleasure to show the magic of Madeira to such wonderful people. Hope to have a chance to show you more next year. Have a great new year full of hapiness, Carlos.

Here we'd like to mention the fact that Carlos is a very skillful driver. And, believe me, it is very important on a very narrow Madeiran roads. We were safe. Besides, this, Carlos is also a very knowledgeable guide and e learnt a lot about people of the island, its cuisine and beautiful nature. We were very happy with our choice of Carlos as our guide-driver. The car was very comfortable and big.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, it was also very pleasant for me to have your both as company for the day, hope to see you soon, all the best, Carlos

The tour we took with Carlos was truely exceptional - best excursion of our cruise! He is pleasant, intelligent, articulate, and incredibly knowledgeable about Madeira. He took six of us on amazing tour of the island taking us to some amazing viewpoints. Even though our tour was on a Sunday, he brought us to a private winery to sample 25-year-old locally produced wine, straight from the barrel. You will not be disappointed if you book a cruise with Carlos. 5-Star Ratiing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for all the fun and joy, it was a pleasure to have such moments with you. Hope to see you soon, to discover all other wonders we have!
