Took the valley of the Nuns Tour on Dec 31, afternoon before the big NY Eve fireworks. was able to arrange a pick-up that connected with a mourning tour from a different company. Pleasantly surprised that the group was only 8 people in a van so easy to see. Guide/drive was pleasant and informative. Valley of the Nuns spectacular. great value for money. And at the end we got a drop-off at the harbor.
My boyfriend and I went on this excursion in early January and it was fantastic. The guide was really knowledgeable and entertaining, pick-up was straightforward, and we saw a whole range of different places across southern part of the island throughout the afternoon. As we'd come on a cruise just for the day, it was an especially good way to see a lot of things before we had to leave in the evening. The only qualm I have is that I felt we hadn't really paid enough for such a good day out..!
A faire pour découvrir la vallée des Nonnes. Ici, c'est la découverte des paysages qui frappe et qu'on peut admirer. Le guide était très sympathique et répondait volontiers à l'ensemble des questions.
La situation du village est particulière mais en toute objectivité, le village situé dans la vallée des nonnes n'a absolument rien de particulier. Donc plutôt à faire en début de séjour quand vous découvrez l'île.
Excellent tour guide Bruno made this trip very enjoyable, he kept us informed and entertained the whole time. I lost my sunglasses and fortunately Bruno found them on the coach a bit later and returned them to my hotel, many thanks Bruno, hope we get you on our next tour.
Loved this tour! Best thing I have seen in Madeira. Bruno was an entertaining guide and having some nice companions only made it better. The views down into the Nuns Valley were breathtaking and the village itself had a lovely atmosphere although more time there would have been nice,to perhaps have a meal. Would very happily go again and can recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the most beautiful part of the country.
Fantastic place to visit and we were so lucky with the clear weather when we were there. Guide great and caring and considerate to make sure we all had a good time when we stopped pointing in out lots of things to see and took us to an amazing view point over Funchal and the other valleys on the way home.
The guide was excellent. I had not been updated with the pick up times and had details of if I was on the Morning or afternoon trip. This caused me unnecessary stress. The Nuns Valley is beautiful as is the rest of Madeira, however not enough to see for a single trip, would be much better visiting this area as part of another tour.
