Marco is a driver/guide, 2-in-1. Nice tour around the eastern part of the island - São Lourenço, Pico Arieiro, Ribeiro Frio, Machico, etc. 90-min lunch might be too long and 20 minutes for São Lourenço is a way too short. Otherwise, all good.
excellent guide, the only small thing would be to confirm with people beforehand that, although lunch is not included in the price, the plan is to eat together at a pre-arranged venuerather than self-catering
Excellent trip. We were in a minibus, 4 English and 4 Portuguese, and the driver/guide managed to switch languages with ease and keep all informed. We covered so much including Camacho, Pico de Areiro, which was superb. We were above the cloud and it was hot and sunny and views breathtaking. Also went to Ribeiro Frio, and Santana to see the Madeira houses, which were nice but not much else there. Had a nice stop in San Lourenco, and Machico which was a nice stop. We also had an unexpected stop up the mountain overlooking Machico with amazing views. It was an excellent taster of the East of Madeira and great value for money. We went with Lido trips but unfortunately I cannot remember the drivers name, but he was excellent and thank you for a very informative day.
An excellent trip, the guide, Paula, was very knowledgable and made sure that we had enough time in all the places. The coach arrived on time and quickly got into trip mode. Very worthwhile and good value for money.
