Know More about this tour

Pick-up from the hotels is between 8 and 9am. The first stop will be at a viewpoint above Funchal. We then make our way to Camacha, famous for its beautiful wicker works, and stop to have a look around. Then take a scenic drive up to Poiso where the start of the Laurissilva forest can be found.

After this we will make our way to the majestic views of Pico do arieiro. Pico do Arieiro is the third highest peak on the island, standing 1818 meters. Next is what some consider to be the most beautiful spot on the island, Ribeiro Frio. Here we will stop to visit a trout farm and do a levada walk to the Balces.

Following the walk we make our way to Santana to see its famous A-framed cottages and then continue along the northern coastal road to Faial. Here we will stop for lunch at a famous restaurant on the island called Grutas do Faial, which means the caves of Faial. A delicious three-course lunch is served along with a very good locally made table wine.

After lunch we will make our way to the most eastern part of the island, Ponta de So Lourenco, and enjoy the views of the cliffs. One can see both the south side and the north side from here as well as Porto Santo, the small island adjacent to Madeira. Our last stop will be a famous viewpoint above Machico.

You arrive back to your hotel by 5pm. Our first stop back is at the harbor before 4:30pm.

    Madeira Seekers was our paid for travel company, and even though we chose the tour two months ago, and confirmed with them the day before, they never showed up. We had no trip as a result and we’re very disappointed

    We’ve spent some excellent times, the tour is amazing, full of stops and places to visit and the guide, Mara, was very nice and an excellent storyteller! The surprise was some places that we’re visited, that are not in the offer and it was quite super cute! The road is smooth, the lunch was amazing, the mountains and Santana is a small town stopped in time with an amazing ocean view! Don’t have regrets, book it, we’re amazed!

    Petite excursion en mini bus avec peu de monde (12 personnes maximum). Nous avons vu de beaux points de vues (statut jesus, machico, vallée des nones, levada, santana, sao laurenço, pico ruivo) C’est sympa pour avoir une vue d’ensemble de l’Est de l’île en revanche je trouve que c’est bien de compléter cette excursion par d’autres: comme faire une randonnée dans une levada, à Sao laurenço ou au pico sinon vous risquez d’être un petit peu frustrés !

    Tour molto ben organizzato con Geige guida fantastica. Ha fornito molte informazioni e consigli e ci ha fatto ammirare splendidi punti panoramici. Il giorno precedente al tour ci hanno telefonato per organizzare il prelievo che è stato comodo e puntuale. Eravamo un gruppo di 5 persone di nazionalità diverse e la guida- autista traducendo in varie lingua parlando anche un poco di italiano. Il pranzo è stato buono ed i tempi di visita sono stati perfetti

    Recomendo este tour. O Sr. Miguel (o condutor) é super atencioso, explica tudo muito bem e está sempre disponível. O almoço (incluído no preço) foi muito bom. Visitamos vários pontos fantásticos.

    Vistas espectaculares, una comida buenísima de 3 platos en Santana, visitamos por último San Lorenzo, una visión muy bonita de la isla. Muy recomendable

    Listing inaccurate as Wicker factory closed - for years! Hence, 4 stars not 5. Guide Cristina genuinely warm and friendly. Tour relaxed and included lunch simple but tasty and reasonable value. Cristina 's knowledge broad and interesting. Several beauty spots visited. Levada walk short but pretty though a bit crowded. Viewpoint at end stunning. Transport not as expected but didn't break down.

    Interesting places with 30min levada walking. Part of the trip charm came from the charismatic driver/gued.
