    Wir hatten die Tour mit Spencer und was soll man sagen. Alles perfekt! So viele Informationen erhalten und wunderschöne Orte gezeigt bekommen. Die Tour war wirklich jeden Cent wert. Das Essen war köstlich, die Rum Verkostung war auch genial. Ich kann jedem empfehlen diese Tour durchzuführen, wer was von Madeira sehen will. Vielen Dank nochmal an Spencer für den tollen Tag!

    Diese Tagestour war ein echtes Abenteuer und Highlight! Ich hatte die Tour mit Lino, dessen Lebenseinstellung "enjoy the moment" ist und genau so haben wir es gemacht. Der Offroad Teil war das Abenteuer, wo der Wagen sogar im Schlamm stecken blieb. Mit Hilfe der Polizei konnte der Wagen dann wieder herausgezogen werden. Ein großartiges Team war das! Ich habe mich die ganze Zeit sicher und gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Lino hat sehr viel erzählt und geholfen, dass die Fahrt unvergesslich bleibt. Danke!

    Toda la actividad fue una maravilla, el guía, Gregorio es una bellísima persona, muy atento y con un conocimiento profundo de la isla. Estuvimos en lugares fuera de las rutas oficiales, lo pasamos estupendamente. Además nos llevó a comer a un lugar muy bueno con mejor calidad.
