    Great views. Good driver who gave us good information about Madeira. But the tour was supposed to be 6 hours and it took more than 8 hours. We only had a 15-20 minutes stop at Pico do Arierio, while other less nice views had much longer stops, which sometimes wasn’t necessary.

    Wunderschöner Ausflug. Ricardo hat uns sehr viele Infos über Land und Leute gegeben. Würden die Tour auf jeden Fall wieder machen. Unser Busfahrer Alessandro hat uns auch sicher durch die Berge geschaukelt. Danke für den schönen Tag
