Stunning Scenery Fantastic Guide Phillip

We had a fantastic day on the East Tour and Levada Walk. Phillip was a fantastic guide and ensured he gave us all the information to enjoy our day. His knowledge of the island and explanations of the microclimate were second to none. There was such diversity in the scenery and the mountain views were breathtaking we feel very lucky to have seen them. Lunch was included in this tour and it was in a restaurant that was set in to the rock, the food and the service were very good. The day passed very quickly and all too soon we were back down to the hustle and bustle of Funchal. Once again top marks to Phillip for ensuring our party had a great day.

Santana to short visit, witch is the picture above, very sad

Waking up early to go around all the hotel,, waste of time 4 passengers as to many hotels to drive to,, lucky no passengers wanted to do the toboggan,,, cannot believe if 1 wanted to do it,, we would all have had to wait,, the time 4 the walk is to long as we have less time in SANTANA, much interesting. Plus it is the picture above,,, the lunch was inside, what a shame we could have lunch on the terrasse ?? In the fresh air?? starter was a soup, In summer time is that a joke?? The salad came after with the main dish,,, sad we did not get a local meal, typically from Madeira,,,,

Too short stay and tour on ilhas desertas for such a long boat trip

Although the staff on the catamaran was very friendly and professional (no complaints there whatsoever), I found the whole experience to be rather disappointing. The trip to and from ilhas desertas takes a long time, and too much so in comparison to the time spent on deserta grande. The tour there is extremely short (10-15 minutes) which is really too bad. While one group does the tour, the other group has the opportunity to engage in some activities such as stand-up paddling and snorkling, but in my opinion this doesn't make up for the short stay on the island.

Good but not as good as West Island Tour

The itenary on this tour was not as good as the west, the stops were short and the places of interest not so interesting, not as scenic as expected, too commercial and the levada walk was nice but again short. The meal was poor and practically thrown at us by the waitress. Not worth the extra for the meal, I would suggest do the tour without it.

Good group leader, good scenery and good food

The group leader picked up on time, the bus was equipped with voice amplification which was good for the people in the rear of the bus. We were given an interesting commentary as we toured around this scenic historical area, well done Kate? We had the lunch which was good, home made and pleasant change to Hotel grub.
