Overview
Exploring Madeira’s west coast from Funchal is tricky without a hire car or constant bus-hopping. This full-day tour steps up, with a seamless loop around the west and north coasts, with stops on route. Absorb the views from Cabo Girao, visit Camara de Lobos and Porto Moniz; and experience the Ribeira da Janela valley and Laurissilva forest. Central Funchal hotel pickup and drop-off makes your day complete.

Very enjoyable tour with beautiful and frequent stop offs along the way- the main stop off for lunch being the highlight, with plenty to do. The bus was well air conditioned which was very much needed in the heat. The tour guide had vast, in depth knowledge of the island and was

Encompassed a lot during the day, covering many highlights and the driver was flexible enough for us to also visit Camara de Lobos. Informative guide, spoke a lot - only downside was he seemed more interested in taking his own photos and videos at some of the stops. A good day

Just returned from a fantastic trip with driver Louis. 8 hours of pure enjoyment. We went into the mountains where the clouds were above. We also visited 3/4 towns and saw the huge waves. Louis drove extremely sensibly and offered a great insight into Madeiran flora and fauna.
