This trip was just brilliant! Our guide Sergio is extremely knowledgeable about the island, geology, astronomy, plants, animals and everything! :) The bat watching really was fun and we were taken to a couple of parts of the island to try and spot the different species, even if you can't see them you can hear them with a special bat...

Umberto great driver and Philippe great guide. 1/2 day trip with 45?" Minute drive each way to near Porto da Cruz. Empty bladder before leaving! this is a remote walk with no toilets. 7.5km walk cliffside - caution if you have vertigo. Paths all safe and guide is at all precarious points to help. Need a walking pole to steady.... More

My husband is a birdwatcher so we booked this trip to see some rare endemic birds. He saw the birds but also we were treated to a wonderful tour of the north and west at both high altitude and low. The flowers and trees in madeira are amazing in spring. We really enjoyed it.

Forgot that I had reviewed this company, Madeira Fauna & Flora, three years ago but been an absolute hit again on this visit for the Chocolate and Orchid tour. Here's why: Nuno, our driver was extremely helpful and made the entire afternoon a pleasure. The chocolate stop was utterly sublime: the tasting demonstrated why the chocolatier won international awards, the... More

We tried to do this on probably the worst day of the year. It had been snowing in he area when we were doing the Sky part of the walk and for most of the time we were walking in cloud and it was very cold. By the time we got lower down, i.e. near the sea it had warmed... More

An excellent tour of the basic geology of the island. Philip made the various places interesting without going into too great a detail. He had some great locations that we had passed nearby a number of times without seeing them. A very interesting and different afternoon.

This was the 10th time I have done this tour, and it gets better every time as the itinerary changes slightly each time to match the season. The highlight this time was a trip to the Palheiro owned by the lovely Sr & Sra Jardim who own Seical Wines for a tasting of their red, white and rose wines. They... More

As a part of my birthday gift, my wife booked a "Bat-Tour" at Flora & Fauna Madeira. It started the evening before my birthday at 8.30 p.m. Our guide, a biologist from the University of Madeira, and our driver picked us up at our hotel and we drove to a bat-spot on Madeira. Equipped with bat-detectors, we began our "hunt"... More

We spent 2 and a half hours walking along side a large levada having and informative talk about this beautiful forest as seen on the BBC 4 programme Madeira - island ark. Views were fantastic and the tour guides so interesting and helpful. Would definitely recommend this company and this trip.
