Durado was an excellent tour guide. We learned so much about the environment and plant life during our trip. He has a hilarious sense of humor with it! I appreciate him giving us the real deal. You can tell how much he loves his country and is knowledgeable about his history. Thank you for the amazing trip. Taking us off the off beaten paths and being authentic and honest.

I loved the tour! Our guide was super generous with his time and we really got to stay as long as we wanted in each stop. Only bad thing is that the backseats face in which makes driving manual over the hills of Madeira feel like a roller coaster. But as long as you don’t a bit of a rough ride I highly recommend
