It was a nice tour!

March 9, 2023

We arranged a private tour. It was the perfect length of time to visit the sites in East and Northeast Madera. Richard, our guide, picked us up on time, was a great driver, and full of excellent information about all of the sites, the history of Madeira and it's culture. Highlight was visiting Manuel's thatched roof house in Santana. Highly recommend!

Richard is a nice, polite fellow who tries to satisfy his clients. We saw the northeastern part of Madeira Witze the beautiful triangle houses and the mystic woods. IT was great. Many thanks! Monika & Ingrid
