Full-Day Private Safari 4x4 Tour

I can go pick you up at the port, on any cruise line when you want, in my UMM (open classic ex-army Portuguese jeep - it has a cover also for all weather conditions), at a time appropriate to your schedule.

In this full-day private tour, we will explore the western part of Madeira Island, always away from the typical “tourist routes".

Get ready to be amazed by panoramic views and explore the heart of nature, while learning all about Madeira's traditions and history.

If you would like to include also some of the most popular attractions as for example the cable car, and the sledge toboggan basket ride on Monte, I am flexible!

We can make my program, create your own tour, or just minor changes during the tour, away from the big groups, taking advantage of the good things that Madeira has to offer!

I will do my best to provide you a unique experience that you will never forget!
