With a beautiful and panoramic view over Funchal, Cmara de Lobos and Deserted Islands, we start our tour at Pico dos Barcelos. From there, we drive towards the famous Curral das Freiras (Nun's Valley) which is surrounded by the highest mountains and historic places. Then we go uphill to Pico do Arieiro at 1818 mts., where we can enjoy magnificent landscapes and great views over Ponta de So Loureno, Ribeiro Frio (East), Pal da Serra (West), Curral das Freiras (South) or even Porto Santo, if there is good weather. In our last stop, Ribeira Primeira Park, a sustainable project in the heart of the forest, you may visit the trout farm and enjoy a natural tea or portuguese coffee at the Tea House, overlooking the park and the magical forest.

    Pico do Arieiro was beautiful. How ever you should bring a jacket as it can get cold if the weather isn‘t that sunny. After some offroading in the jeep we stoped for some traditional poncha. All in all, a nice trip for people who‘d like to do a halfway trip.

    Really interesting tour in a very elderly but charismatic Land Rover Defender. Braz, our driver and guide was a very engaging character who made the day a lot of fun. The peak itself was pretty busy but for a lot of the time we didn’t see many other tourists. Highlight for us was the off-road section and the very steep descent into Funchal.

    What a fantastic trip! Our tour guide, Pedro, was one of the best I’ve ever had. He was great fun, made us all feel so welcome and involved, gave us so much fascinating information and never rushed us. He obviously loves Madeira and the enthusiasm shone through. It really felt like “Team Pedro”!! The tour itself was also excellent. Beautiful scenery, great fun doing it in a jeep (particularly the off-road bits through the forest), well organised and good value for money. Overall, we couldn’t have been happier with this trip and would thoroughly recommend it. Thanks Pedro!!!

    What a great trip. The highlight for me was Pico Arieiro where the views were amazing, but all the viewing points we stopped at provided good views. Additionally, our driver, Gil, was passionate about his island, told us about life on Madeira, explained some of the ecological issues and twice stopped to show us plants/fruits he spotted by the side of the road. Thanks.

    Rui was a happy and welcoming guide. He made our experience very fun and entertaining. We saw great places and we loved the 4x4 car, was a real delight.

    We booked a second tour with True Spirit as we enjoyed the first so much. This was a half day tour with Diogo who was also friendly, informative and fun. We were lucky to have great weather the whole morning, getting to see incredible views along our journey and at the main sights. The off roading was fantastic and with great views and lots of nature and wildlife to be seen.

    A experiência na sua totalidade foi incrível apesar do nevoeiro que estava no pico! Ruben foi o nosso guia e foi sem dúvida um ótimo guia, que nos ensinou factos interessantes e manteve o espírito nas altas a toda a hora! Experiência a repetir possivelmente! Obrigada Ruben!
