Hi Tobi

Many thanks for your very kind information on buses to Machico and your speedy reply! We had a fabulous time (8th visit to the island) in April, made better by being able to visit places not seen before. Thanks again and congrats on a great site,

Kind regards, Julia

Just returned from a holiday on The Beautiful Island of Madeira. We were staying in the Pestana Carlton Hotel which was a great location for us to be, as it was our first visit . Took a tour of the North, where we visited the Caves...which were great!...The people in Madeira are so friendly,and welcolming, the food is so tasty, and presented in a lovely way. I wish I could have seen more,especially the carnivals,but I will certainly be returning...we all fell in love with included.

We were on the Thompson flight on the 17th Feb,which diverted into Porto Santo...yes it was a pretty hair-raising experience when landing in Madeira...but everything went ok!

Come to Madeira every year and stay at the Promenade.  Love the island and its people, so friendly and generous.

I think the website is just what one needs. Straight forward with no nonsense. Personally I would just like a cafe to watch the world go by, at my age that's about it!!

Tobi is Mr Madeira, he knows absolutely everything there is to know about the island and his knowledge and friendly approach helped us to have a wonderful stay. Tobi went out of his way to make us feel really relaxed and to show us many of the 'hidden gems' Madeira has to offer. We can't speak highly enough for him. If you are looking at going to Madeira, contact him, especially if you are looking at doing something a little out of the ordinary. Thanks Tobi. Ian Gough, Reading, UK.
