Super, To do absolutely. Thank you to our driver and guide who led us to see superb landscapes. And in smaller part of 4x4 to conclude. We had a great time. To do. Be careful if you do this activity in the morning bring warm clothing for the moment when you cross the interior of the mountains and forest.

Pedro was superb!

Pedro is a very knowledgeable guy and clearly has a deep pride in his island of Madeira. His enthusiasm to share the many aspects of the island - the fauna, the flora, the landscape and the culture and food was obvious. He was most generous with his time and as a result used way over the allotted time for the tour. Thank you Pedro! Tom & Ann McGuigan, Ireland
