- Transportation included
- Duration: 8 hours
Why are you even looking at other alternatives? Stop! Simply book any tours from Lucy and Tony! Be aware: I'm a person who usually hates tour guides, and I did not know them before, but I have fallen in love with both Tony and Lucy (who would not fall in love with them??). What is unique about them is their authenticity, their unique routes, the tailoring of the trips to your wishes and needs, the fun and joy, the time for yourself, the professionality... in sum : their uniqueness is the secret of Madeira, and that just happens to be their business name : Secret Madeira!
Given the current covid-19 situation we found this an excellent way to explore the area. Having a personal guide and travelling in a novel mode of transport only added to the overall experience. We both enjoyed the whole authentic tour but just sitting and chatting with a local and discussing the current situation/issues just brings it home that people are pretty much the same all over the world.
Honestly Tony was fantastic from start to finish. Incredibly passionate about Madeira and knowledgeable about pretty much everything you could want to know. His English was superb and the day was incredible from start to finish and unbeatable value. Had two hours for lunch and a swim at Porto Moniz and more than a dozen stops along the way. Brilliant and I really don’t like tours!
A great day out where we explored the west of the island with Lucy, the best tour guide ever. She told us about the fauna of the island, the traditions and much more. Lots of stop offs to take pictures, refreshand of course swim in the natural pools.
Generally the tour was very nice and worth it. Highlight was Porto Moniz and the natural pools. We had to wait for the guide more than half an hour without informing us.
