This was our first time in Madeira and we really wanted to Explore, and Carlos really was exceptional in spending the day with us. We saw all of the main tourist attractions, plus much more than we expected. Carlos took us all over the Island, told us of its history and to top it off took us to a Restaurant for lunch that served a local fish that was out of this world delicious.. When we returned to our ship and compared tours with other guests, we undoubtedly saw more, had more fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a lovely time together with a lot of fun, hopefully we will see each other next year, here in my Paradise.

Carlos was one of the best guides we have ever had anywhere. What a charming personable gentleman with obvious love of his island. He conveyed that love to us and so much more. He seemed to go above and beyond to make our day a total success. He knew his facts and seemed to understand exactly what would make us enjoy our time. We went away feeling that we had explored the best of Madeira as efficiently as possible. Madeira could not have a better ambassador. We all loved our day with him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review - probably the best I’ve ever received! I didn’t even think about myself as ambassador, but now I feel I like the idea, thank you ;) I’m very happy that you enjoyed the tour and our paradise, Madeira island, and I hope to see you again next year for even better experiences – Madeira still have a lot, A LOT to offer!

As a native of Funchal, Carlos showed that he knows seemingly every corner of the incredibly beautiful island of Madeira. He is knowledgeable, youthful, energetic and very personable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Carlos and strongly recommend him to visitors who want to see more than just what is available to see in Funchal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Patti for the review, it was a pleasure to have a opportunity to guide your lovely family around my wonders, see you next year, Carlos

Carlos was an extremely engaging guide. We saw more of Madeira in his tour than we expected. Carlos is born on the island and has an extensive knowledge of everything. His English was great. We met as strangers and by the end of the day, my husband and I felt we left as friends. We enjoyed the tour so much, we booked Carlos for a second day. I would highly recommend using Carlos when visiting Funchal, Madeira. Excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, it was also a pleasure to have such great people to guide. Hope to see you next year, my friends.

Carlos was a great tour guide. Arriving on time, we began our adventure driving to visit the many natural vistas of Madeira. The lava caves in Sao Vicente were spectacular and swimming in the natural lava lagoons in Porto Moniz is a once in a lifetime experience. Carlos took me for lunch in a restaurant where the locals dine and not only was food and drink great, but the view was unbelievable. The time went fairly quickly, and before you know it, the full day of touring was over.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, it was great to have you as company, hope to see you next year.

Very personable and knowledgeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, really appreciated! Hope see you all back to Madeira once more!
Carlos picked us the Criuse terminal exactly on time. We did a perfectly organized 7 hours tour to the places we where most interested in (Levada walk, cliff views, Lava cave walk, sleigh ride and Funchal city center and market). Doe to Carlos wide knowledge we learned a lot about Madeiras history and the rich nature of this beautiful island. As it was clear that there will be not enough time for having lunch, Carlos provided some snacks - very kind and thoughtful - thanks a lot!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was also my pleasure to guide You around our Wonders. Hope that you could come for longer period, which I belive it will happen very soon! Have a save return back home.
