What you'll do
Explore the Eastern side of Madeira in a open top 4x4 vehicle, feeling like a Madeiran avoiding the tourist crowds, discovering magic places that you wouldn't see with a normal car. On this tour you will enjoy the landscapes, learn about the hidden villages where we will pass, fauna, flora, history, geology, costumes and traditions, gastronomy, etc. We will start passing by Machico, then up to Portela using the old roads (and off road) thru the Unesco forest with great landscapes. Then we will visit a Rum factorie and taste local drinks. Afterwards we go to Santana, where we have the tipical traditional thatched houses and a break for lunch (optional). At the afternoon, we will pass at Ribeiro Frio (Cold River Valley) where we have a trout farm, and the last stop of this tour at the 3rd highest mountain at 1818 m, Pico do Areeiro. Then return to your hotel/accomodation.
I am the founder and CEO of the tourism company Green Devil Safari, with the Portuguese license RNAAT 69/2015, recognized by Turismo de Portugal. I work as tour guide since 2001, taking our visitors to know unique places, many of them unknown to tourists. The objective is to make every tourist feel "Madeiran" for 1 day, knowing our culture, history, tradition, gastronomy, avoiding the touristic places. In order to avoid large crowds of tourists, my tours are made in 4x4 vehicles with the roof open, in groups up to 8 people per car.
Lunch is optional, €12.00 per person
