Super West Madera Tour

Far away from the beaten track in the truest sense. A fabulous day trip. Thanks to our Jeep driver David. Even though he did not speak German with Poncha, we saw everything and understood the most important things. With the car we would not have met the part of the island,

Sehr pünktliche Abholung vom Hotel, danach durch den Südosten der Insel. Viele neue Sehenswürdigkeiten gezeigt bekommen, Tour meistens auf den alten Straßen von Madeira. Erklärung der Fauna und Botanik und der Lebensbedingungen der Einwohner. Mittags ein gutes 3 Gänge Menü, sehr gut. Mit Nuno Pereira hatten wir, wir waren zu zweit, einen sehr Guide . Punktabzug einzig, weil ich eine deutsche Führung gebucht hatte und mein Englisch eher schlecht ist, aber er hat langsam gesprochen, so dass ich vieles verstanden habe

Prachtige tocht langs mooie plaatsen waar je normaal niet komt

Dit was echt wat je van een jeeptocht mag verwachten. We zijn op veel plekken geweest waar je met een grote bus niet kan komen. Vooral de tocht over de kleine wegen door de bergen vond ik zeer bijzonder. Prachtige uitzichten, mooie plaatsjes, schitterende kusten. Leuk dat we vaak in de jeep mochten staan. We waren met slechts twee jeeps dus echt kleinschalig en persoonlijk. Beetje jammer dat de tour in het duits en frans werd gedaan terwijl we engelse tour hadden geboekt. Goede en ervaren reisleider die ons veel mooie plekjes van het eiland heeft laten zien. Het eten in Porto Moniz was eenvoudig maar erg lekker. Ophalen was voor ons nog even een uitdaging. We waren cruise passagiers en zouden voor het Pestana CR7 hotel opgehaald worden. Vanaf de kade bij ons cruiseschip zagen we een Pestana hotel liggen. Na ruim 10 minuten lopen (behoorlijk stijl omhoog) bleek dat niet het goede Pestana hotel te zijn. Toen snel met een taxi naar het goede hotel gereden waar we net op tijd aankwamen.
