Santana to short visit, witch is the picture above, very sad

Waking up early to go around all the hotel,, waste of time 4 passengers as to many hotels to drive to,, lucky no passengers wanted to do the toboggan,,, cannot believe if 1 wanted to do it,, we would all have had to wait,, the time 4 the walk is to long as we have less time in SANTANA, much interesting. Plus it is the picture above,,, the lunch was inside, what a shame we could have lunch on the terrasse ?? In the fresh air?? starter was a soup, In summer time is that a joke?? The salad came after with the main dish,,, sad we did not get a local meal, typically from Madeira,,,,

Good but not as good as West Island Tour

The itenary on this tour was not as good as the west, the stops were short and the places of interest not so interesting, not as scenic as expected, too commercial and the levada walk was nice but again short. The meal was poor and practically thrown at us by the waitress. Not worth the extra for the meal, I would suggest do the tour without it.

Great tour with a lovely guide. Weather was awful unfortunately so we’re going to book this tour again on a future visit when the weather will hopefully be better. Nice lunch in an interesting restaurant & great to see the traditional houses in Santana.

This activity gives you a good understanding of the east side of Madeira. The guide is knowledgeable and the ride is comfortable. We enjoyed the restaurant and the many different views and look out points. The Levada walk was also a highlight.

Good way of exploring this part of the island

A lot is crammed into the day with numerous stops. The lunch was very good but we would have preferred a tour without a compulsory three course lunch. Overall a very good day with an enthusiastic guide.
