Reviews for Madeira island holiday


review 31 Oct 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The amazing mountainous scenery! So much more than I expected.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take comfortable walking shoes. It is not too strenuous at all, but the island is so mountainous that you can't avoid steep-ish walks sometimes - but it is always worth it! Also be prepared for mosquitoes! I hadn't given them a thought in my preparations, but because it was always warm - and we had quite a few showers - the mosquitoes were about and I had lots of bites!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes to all three. We were shown all over the island, saw the local crafts and the wonderful, and clever levadas.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

For me it was a really good holiday. I think it was very well planned with lots of activities but also free time if you wanted it. An excellent tour with an excellent guide. I was very impressed with the tour operator and would certainly recommend them and travel with them again.
