We thoroughly enjoyed this jeep tour. We visited the breathtaking Cabo Girao Skywalk and enjoyed the spectacular views at this sea cliff through the glass bottom platform. Our highlight was the Porto Moniz lava pools where we were stopped for an hour swim, but we also enjoyed Seixal views and waterfalls as well as the off-road rides. Had lunch along the way in a friendly local restaurant where we tasted some traditional food. On our way back home we stopped at a local bar at Ponta do Sol where we drank the Madeiran poncha (sugar cane spirit, honey and lemon juice) a very fantastic drink that further lifted our spirit. Our guide Tony was fun and provided us with lots of interesting information along the way. He had a great knowledge of the off-road tracks and took us for some exciting rides. We had fun from the beginning till the end of the day. A small advice though: take a jumper with you because the open jeep ride can be windy and a bit cold in higher altitudes in the October mont

Without a doubt one of the best days of my life. It was an eight hour day excursion to the Skywalk, volcanic pools, lunch up the mountains in a 4x4. Not only was the scenery and landscape stunning Tony our guide was an absolute legend. Very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, funny and all round good guy. I had fallen in love with Madeira after day 1 but having been on this excursion (Day 5) my love for the island has deepened. Perhaps the best value for money you will ever come across for some life enrichment. 10 out of 10 for the trip and the guide. Obrigado Tony
