    A very enjoyable and full day in the hands of a very careful driver and an extremely knowledgeable guide. The weather was not on our side but Plan B was put in full swing and everyone had a great day.

    What a spectacular way to enjoy the Island. Any review must begin with the tour guide and Edgar S. Was a fantastic host. His knowledge of the island was very strong and his interaction was perfectly tuned to our needs and desires. His knowledge of the various plants and crops was top notch.

    We toured the west end of the Island leaving Funchal and traveling along the coast and then up over the island to the Northwest town of Porto Muniz. Along the way we stopped at several almost indescribably beautiful spots. His 4x4 vehicle was both comfortable and safe on all of the variety of roads we traversed. Edgar was able to get us to spots less available to tourists traveling alone and we didn’t have to worry about driving or parking which made a big difference in our enjoyment.

    I am sure there are other options and perhaps other equally competent guides, but we could not have had a fuller and richer experience of this magical island paradise.

    Incredible moment. The service is a Business class level. The crew is so nice, the boat beautiful and there is plenty of space for 17 people. We saw whales and dolphins. The food and beverages are very qualitative. Absolutely WORTH IT! Even without seeing animals (nature decides in the end) it’s such a pleasant moment we would have been happy. But we got both!! Thank you again to the entire crew of yesterday afternoon!

    I'd read the reviews and thought it sounded great, and I wasn't wrong! It is a full day trip in an open top 4x4 up to the north western side of the island. There were six of us in total in our Jeep, but a small convoy of other Jeeps with us for much of the day. Our tour guide and driver was Nelson who was a most entertaining guide! He was very knowledgeable about the island, it's culture and geography, including the plants and animals. He was also able to speak to us in English and the other four in French (despite saying his French wasn't very good!). The guides all interact with each other and have a good laugh throughout the day.

    As we were a full car, I stayed sat in the front passenger seat but the rest of the group were able to stand up during the open top parts of the trip as we bounded up rocky hills. The weather was incredibly changeable all day (we certainly experienced all four seasons multiple times!) but it didn't detract from the day at all and we all had a great time. A couple of the natural pools were closed due to the mad weather, but we did have a brief swim in the sea at a black sandy beach in Seixal (pack your swimming costume!).

    In hindsight, I'd have probably not bothered with the 18 euro lunch offer at Porto Moniz and found somewhere else to get food, but this was largely because as a vegetarian my options were limited to "vegetable pasta"! This didn't detract from the day though.

    It was a brilliant way to see parts of the island we'd have struggled to reach from Funchal without a car, or even with a car given some of the terrain! We enjoyed it so much, we booked onto the Madeira Peaks east tour for later on in our holiday.

    I want to thank True Spirit and our guide Julia for an amazing tour! It was very well organised, everything - picking up, lunch break, all the points of interest - were done timely and professionally.
    We were not only transferred throughout the island with a lot of magnificent vistas and multitude of beautiful and interesting places, but we also were provided with relevant and meaningful explanations from Julia.
    I strongly recommend this tour. It really worth to spend a day in such a proper way!

    Dear team,

    A few days have now passed since our adventure in Madeira. One thing is clear: this whale-watching tour was an absolute highlight. We are full of gratitude and still overwhelmed by what we were able to see on the water, what a great service we were offered and what a unique adventure we were able to experience and the memories that will last a lifetime.

    We would recommend this tour to anyone and we would do it again anytime!
    Starting with a super warm welcome from the team, the fantastic organization and consultation between colleagues and the super friendly and open manner towards us right up to the last second.
    We were particularly pleased with the great photos that were taken for us and which were sent to us in excellent quality within a very short time. We would not want to do without the photos of the sunset, the dolphins, whales and individual photos, because they are a very special memory for life.
    It is an adventure that is really worthwhile!

    We enjoyed unforgettable hours with the team and also as a couple.
    It was magical!
    Thank you very much

    Would definitely recommend this trip. A great way to see the dramatic scenery and the beautiful quaint villages. Jorge our guide was excellent. Very relaxed , no time restrictions, very easy going and great commentary . He also recommended a great restaurant for lunch. Loved the fresh coffee , homemade cakes , Madeira wine and beers. So pleased we opted for a small group tour. There were 6 of us and all got on very well. It’s a long day but worth it.

    This was a thoroughly enjoyable two day tour of the island. Our guide Lionel was very knowledgeable telling us bits of the islands history and informing us about each place whilst en route. We found that at each stop the time given to explore was about right for us. We also tried a few new things such as Poncha and Anona which we might not have tried had we not done the tour. In summary, the tour was a great way to see the island, good value for money and our tour guide, Lionel, was "Outstanding", thank you!

    Clean, friendly staff, bar and snacks available. It was pleasantly quiet and serene. The ocean here is beautiful, dolphins and pilot whales showed up. I was hoping we would stop for a swim along coast. Relaxing time.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the east. The mini bus was comfortable. The driver was very knowledgeable and provided commentary throughout the tour. Great itinerary and good amount of time spent at each stop. Stunning scenery. Great way to spend the day.

    The hop on hop off bus was great to see Funchal, but the commentary was not very interesting at times, with more music than interesting information being played through the earphones.
    Our first driver seemed in a hurry and barely stopped at any stops meaning if you want to get off you have to walk down the aisle while the bus is still moving, not easy for my husband who is disabled.
    If you want to go to the viewpoint at Cabo Girao, be sure to get off at Câmara de Lobos and wait for a smaller bus, it is a bit confusing so double check with your driver.

    All in all a good experience but takes a bit of getting used to. Thankfully all the drivers were very friendly and helpful. The views are stunning.

    We used the app (which is excellent) so we could track our journey, plan our stops and work out when the next bus would arrive.
