I can't rate this highly enough, it is a great way to see a lot of things in one day with the bonus of hotel pick up and drop off and it being an off road experience! But the biggest plus I think are the drivers, my driver Spencer was so informative, helpful and always up for laugh it really made the day even more entertaining! He pulled over a few times to show us different plants etc as really knew all the best spots to take photographs but also was always happy to stop when asked. Definitely by favourite day I spent on the island :
Fernando our driver arrived on time and proved to be very informative and friendly. We joined another couple of groups and have to say considering the terrain we were very grateful that we weren't crammed into a jeep. We were in a 7 seater 4x4 - there were 5 of us and we had a roll back roof so we were still able to appreciate our surroundings. Very bumpy exciting drive! Unfortunately I can't comment on the meal as one of our party became ill and we had to go back to the hotel. Fernando was extremely sympathetic and took us back, even offering 20 off another trip as we didn't complete this one. Unfortunately we didn't fit in another trip but wouldn't hesitate to book with this company again.
We were picked up by Luis at 0830 on Saturday 12 Nov as scheduled in the comfortable 4x4. Our trip was to be to Machico where we stopped for photographs and coffee. From here we followed an old mountain route set up by community farmers to get from the south to the north of the island going to Porto da Cruz and a visit to the rum factory and Casa du Rum. On to Santana to see the quaint old thatched houses where we visited one. Time for lunch at Cantinho da Serra and a superb old Madeiran traditional 3 course meal with wine for only 12 Eu each. Returning via Faial, Ribeiro Frio fish farm and then up to Pico do Areeiro 1818 m high, the highest point on the island. We then headed back down to Funchal arriving at 1630, an excellent day out. Throughout the day Luis gave us a lot of interesting information about the island and often stopped to show us various plants and fruits. There were several beautiful scenic stops for photographs as well. The narrow steep roads and tracks realised the necessity of a 4x4 and Luis handled the vehicle well as we were never concerned about his ability. Luis spoke English very well, was always polite and ready to answer our questions, he also took some photographs with his mobile and promised to email them to us. A trip I would not hesitate to recommend.
