It was a wonderful, familiar and authentic excursion. The tour was well organized, informative and enriching. We experienced the east of Madeira from its most beautiful side. Our guide was very friendly, humorous and filled the tour with warmth. Apart from that, the tour was well organized, on time and there was enough time at all stations. We felt very well looked after and seen. It was a tour with each other and not as anonymous and crowded as with a tour bus, for example. We would recommend this tour to any vacationer who wants to experience a little more than just the sights. Thank you for the wonderful time. Gladly again! And good luck to all who are still allowed to enjoy.

The guide was very good IF you hadn't chosen the *German* language. I was put in a group that had been talking in Portuguese all day, so there was no communication. The travel guide can't help it, tried very hard, but if you can choose a German guide, you should get one.

The tour guide Patrizia was great. She had a lot to tell and constantly sought contact with each individual. The hiking tour can be managed by almost everyone, as it runs almost exclusively without gradients. At the very end it goes a bit downhill. Great spot. Definitely a tour I can recommend.
