    The tour was interesting. I say interesting as the off road part is only recommended if you don’t mind heights and big drops by the side of the road. The wine tasting was good and the short tour of the vineyard ok.

This tour might seem a bit expensive, but it's most certainly worth it! It's a really unique experience. Sophia, our driver/storyteller, knows a lot about the island and makes the tour a lot of fun! Not only did we taste a lot of wines, the views during the tour were amazing as well, I might even say some of the best views that we've had out of all the tours that we did on the island. Highlight of the tour: having amazing traditional beef skewers for lunch at a vineyard with an amazing view. You will not go hungry (or thirsty) for sure! Note during covid times: we were with a small group of 7 including Sophia, so it felt very safe.

We loved spending the day with Sofia & her car Sheila! She’s a lifelong citizen from Madeira and marvelous storyteller. She was the perfect guide to help us discover some of the best Madeira wines & Madeirian wines as well. Between the stops, she would tells us stories and fun facts about the island, both ancient as well as up to date information.

Sofia was a great guide who was so knowledgeable! We stopped at several viewing spots for photos on the way to the 4 wine stops. The main one being a vineyard with amazing views. We tried 6 wines and had the most amazing food. I would really recommend this tour. It seemed expensive, but was definitely worth the money! Thanks

Fantastic trip. Something completely different, the group was great, the wine excellent and our driver, Duarte was absolutely the best. If you are considering getting just one trip in Madeira - do this one

Absolutley amazing day from start to finish. Our tour guide Norbert was so knowledgable and so much fun!
