What people are saying about São Vicente Caves
At first our bus did not turn up, however we rang the office and Lucy was very apologetic and came out to give us a personal tour! Apparently our original bus had broken down. Lucy gave us a 'VIP' tour, all for us as we had been waiting a while. Lucy told us so much about the island and island life that I'm sure we would not have otherwise learned. The caves themselves were very interesting, I would definitely recommend good walking shoes and a light waterproof jacket with either a hood or a hat as you will get wet. I have been to many caves and these ones are different yet again. After walking through the caves you are led through to a video, explaining how the islands were formed. To get to this you go through an area where lots of information has been put up about various volcanoes around the world, but it is a shame that you don't have time to read them. The 3D show at the end is entertaining. Finally the pastel de nata and the apple cake in the coffee shop are amazing! lovely tour
A really good tour with nice views on the north side of Madeira, the cave is nice . The cathedral and view point also. But the best on our tour was the amazing guide „John“, he show us the real live of Madeira and gave us really good inside informations , a fantastic guide with really good vibes and big love for his own country.
This was the first time I visited a volcanic cave, and for a person like me who is fond of speleology it was a memorable experience. I wish I had more time there because I would have liked to have a closer look at the formations, the cave's genesis, and, of course, to take more pictures.
Amazing guides and communication with all the staff prior departure. Guides in Madeira loves the job they are doing and they are putting 110% of the efforts to make your experience unforgettable. Big thank you for John.
The Caves are beautiful and when you are on Maderia you have to visit and see this beauty!!
