Full Day Tours

All our tours are in small groups of 6 passengers. We avoid the big crowds and common tourist traps.
We get to know our clients and personalise each and every tour based on the spirit of the group.
Every tour is an experience and no tour is the same.

East 4x4 Tour

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

The east tour is a great place to start if you've never been outside of Funchal. It has a little bit of everything and probably our most well balanced tour. 

The highlights of this tour include;

Visiting the high peak, Pico do Areiro, the village of Santana where they have the A-frame houses and the unbeatable lunch at the Quinta do Furao hotel.

West 4x4 Tour

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays

The west of Madeira is where we can see the larger areas of untouched nature. This tour is more about getting into the forest and going on a "expedition"

The highlights of this tour include;

The largest plateau of the island, Paul da Serra, the off-roading and exploring of the lesser populated areas, the amazing lunch at the Aqua Natura Hotel and swimming in the volcanic rock pools of Seixal.


Let the experts show you around in style.

Private 4x4 Tour

€225 per Jeep

Up to 6 passengers per vehicle


Half Day Tours

We´ve designed our half day tours to be something very different to the rest of the tours on the market.
Both tours are away from the crowds (few tourists around at those times)


Sunrise Tour - Half Day 4x4 Tour

Wednesdays and Fridays


Sunset Tour - Half Day 4x4 Tour

Tuesdays and Thursdays

"We did the East 4x4 tour and the Sunset tour.

Both were led by Jeff who was a fantastic tour guide with a great attitude, sense of humour and really knew the island. We were communicated with before hand about time of pick ups, what to bring etc. We were fortunate enough to have great weather on the East tour which meant great views and photo opportunities. The off track local roads were great for a bumpy experience which the entire group loved. We were also recommended and taken to local places for the local drink poncha which provided some authenticity. 
The second day we headed out in the evening to try and view the sunset. Unfortunately the weather was not in our favour and it was too cloudy to watch the sunset but the journey up to the top of the mountain was a great one. Again we had a great group and created a positive attitude so the entire experiences were just full of non stop laughter and learning about the island. Although no sunset pictures we still were able to stop at a few locations on the way back down and still got some good views and pictures. Ofcourse Jeff knew the best spots for the local drinks to end the evening which was an added bonus for us all. 
Both days were such great experiences. Hit the road Madeira was recommended to me and I would definitely recommend the tour company to anyone who would wish to visit. Our experiences were filled with great knowledge of the island, great views, a wonderful group with non stop laughter and a plan to come back another time to do all the other tours!"
