Nicolau's tour was absolutely outstanding - on our last trip we had many tours and tour guides - Nicolau was by far the best guide we have used - especially enjoyed all of his knowledge and background of Funchal - taking us to great sites that larger tours miss. Cannot say enough on how highly we recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hello my friend thnak you soo much for your words had a great time with you and really looking forward to see you again soon!

Nico was an amazing tour guide - he was very accommodating to our two mobility-challenged people on the tour. We were 4 people and we had plenty of room in the vehicle to be really comfortable. The sights were amazing, and Nico was very versed on the history and the culture. The restaurant he took us to for lunch was the best - it was an awesome experience with the view and the food was excellent - just like he said!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hello my sweet friend had a great time with you guys, so happy you enjoyed my island and eatiing and drinking in the same places i love!! really hope to have you back some day soon!

Nicolau was fantastic. I wish there was a higher rating than five stars so I could give it to him. Four of us (two couples) toured with him for a day and couldn't have had a better time. We saw out of the way places, ate and drank at locals places that were outstanding, and generally had a great time in Madeira, all thanks to a great guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my friend, for me was a pleasure showing you my island, and spending a day like it was spending with Family. Thnak you so much for your words and hope to see yoy back many times now that we will be almost neighboors :D one big hug Nico

Nicolau was punctual and attentive to our special requests to see off the beaten path experiences - we could not have asked for a better day exploring the sea side and beautiful scenery of Madiera. We have fabulous photos and memories for a life time.

We had a great time with Nico. He took us to several out of the way sites that most tourists will never see. His open air jeep made the tour really fun. We would recommend Nico to anyone that wants to have fun while they see the sites of the area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my good friend was fantastic meeting you and your wife. Had really a great time and really hope to get to see you someday soon back to Madeira Nico

Nico, Nico, Nico. Maybe the most positive person in the world??? :). Nico made our day in Madeira something that I will never forget. His love for his homeland really shines through with his knowledge of all the history and the amazing views and everything else that Madeira has to offer. I have been trying to convince my wife to move there for the last week :). Nico, we will definitely be back and we'll go to a Maritimo game together :). Thanks again my friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my good friend, thnak youuuuuu!! i Had an amazing day with you and your familly, so happy there is another Maritimo supporters, so now you have all the factors needed to moove here and become a true Madeiran :D Thnak you for your words and really hope to see you soon!

This tour was my second with Nicolau. The first, several years ago, was an upcountry adventure in his jeep. Heaps of fun, lots of information, and a great overall experience. This time around, we took his van, had a much more sedate experience, but just as wonderful. Nico provided a very full half-day tour that included lots of scenery, information, stories, and wonderful conversation. I don't hesitate to recommend him 100%!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my sweet friend, was sooooooo good to see you again and had a great time spent showing you and your husband around in my van, and really hope to see you some day very soon again. One kiss and hug the size of the world ;) Nico

Nicolau is a very knowledgable and friendly guide. He picked us up and asked about our interests. He is very energetic and knows the best places to grab some tasty snacks and drinks. I learned a lot about the history of Funchal on this tour as well as traditional food, drinks, and local markets. I would recommend this tour to anyone that has an interest in trying food and drinks off the beaten path to see a place full of locals.

Three of us had an exhilarating, informative guided tour with Nicolau in Madeira. He picked us up in his very comfortable van, on time and at the exact location arranged. Over a two-day period, we did two different hikes, toured breathtaking sites, had an amazing lunch at a local restaurant picked by Nico, and capped it off with a trip to a local bar where we sampled drinks that are favorites on the island. Nico is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Madeira!

Nico did an amazing job to show us the highlights of the island in only four hours as our boat only stopped that short in this fantastic island. He explained everything fine not only on nature but history and politics as well. He definitely made us wish to come back for a longer holiday!

Nicolau did a fantastic job accommodating our special needs on our photo tour through the mountains to Porto Moniz. He was very helpful with our use of the wheelchair and patient and supportive of our photography. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his island. Even though we had toured parts of Madeira on 3 previous occasions, we learned more about this beautiful island on our day with Nico than from all the others!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hello my friend, in fact aking someone who has come to Madeir aso Many times, and hear that you still had a great time and learned new things its really flatering for me!! I had a great time, been looking at your amazing pictures and am looking for your new album of Madeira. Hope you come by again soon and show you around maybee some more surprises! one bg hug from your friend Nico

We had a great time with Nicolau. He showed us several beautiful corners of Madeira we wouldn't have seen by ourselves, leaving us the time to enjoy the landscapes and the natural beauty fo the island. He is also a very entertaining and pleasant company. The all family enjoyed the time with him.

Nicolau was extremely helpful in customizing a half day trip for us, showing us parts of Madeira most tourists do not see. Nicolau was friendly, knowledgeable and a perfect ambassador for his home. I would highly recommend his services as a guide. And if you want to have some fun, mention you'd like to see some of the back roads in the mountains.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hello my frind thank you sooo much from my hearth for the great morning we spent togheter. really hope that Madeira become as well one of your favourite travel destinations after this week and hope to see you back to Madeira soon! Thnak you Nico

Nico was very knowledgeable, helpful, passionate, and friendly. His English is very good and he took us to local sites where we could experience the true culture of Madeira. He followed up our tour with an email with many helpful links so that we could enjoy other aspects of the island. Nico really was terrific and we will schedule another tour with him in the next few days.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hello my friend thank you so much! had a great time cruising with the 8 of you :D thank you for your beautiful, and please, feel free to book the tour you wish! Thank you sooo much and looking forward to see you again Nico
