  • Northeast Madeira 4X4 Tour from Funchal

    1. Northeast Madeira 4X4 Tour from Funchal

    Head out from Funchal on a full-day tour of Madeira’s north-east. Leaving the town behind, stop in São Vicente, and take in amazing 360-degree views. Marvel at the contrast of colors from the vineyards. Enjoy a drive along serpentine roads and through forests. Discover the unique scenery of the area from an open-top 4X4 vehicle. Before lunch, visit a water mill and see the traditional thatched houses of Santana. Stop to enjoy lunch in idyllic surroundings, and later visit a sugar cane and rum factory, where you can taste the local rum. Finish your tour in Caniçal, where you’ll have spectacular views of Ponta São Lourenço – the eastern part of the island.

    It was an amazing trip, especially off road, in the nature, with open roof. We could stand up and look around. Beautiful views. We had very professional and nice guide Hugo, he was an excellent driver as well. Thanks for a great day!!!!

Highly Recommended!!

We had Valdemar as a guide, who clearly loves his island and can also convey it super. The tour was really diverse and not overrun by tourists. Valdemar took us to the best vantage points, explained a lot and gave it a try. The off-road tours were another special highlight and were a lot of fun. The lunch offered for 12 € was definitely worth it and brought us closer to the home kitchen. At rum tasting we were offered the "fire water" to try. This extremely successful tour ended with a local poncha in a typical bar!

In advance there was an email from the organizer at the pick-up time. There were four of us with our guide Valdemar from Green Devils Tour in a jeep. Many small corners, which would otherwise have been neglected, were visited and explanations provided. Magnificent vantage points alternated with explanations of the local flora, rounded off with off-road excursions. A great trip!

I recommend it to everyone who comes to the island. Our guide Gregorio has made us spend an unforgettable day with his explanations and his knowledge. All quite flexible and very enjoyable. A 10!

Great tour guide! We are great routes and paths (no roads) with the car, which was great fun. So you really see the most of this great island within the time and opportunity!
