Customer Testimonials

We did the Nuns Valley tour and were very impressed. Lovely enthusiastic guide giving just the right amount of informative commentary. Timings of stops at viewpoints were just right. Very enjoyable and excellent value for money. Will use again should we ever have chance to return to Madeira.

Peter Sharpe

This is a journey to the centre of Madeira Island where dramatic, cloud-topped mountains descend to verdant valleys in a most spectacular way.

After boarding the minibus in the centre of Lido we first make our way up to Eira do Serrado where you will find one of the most exclusive and beautiful views, not to mention a great "green" location unlike any other in Madeira.

The journey down to the Nuns Valley (Curral da Freiras) village takes approximately 20 minutes where guests will enjoy the countryside, forest brushes mixed with populated areas with quaint houses typical of the Madeiran society.
Once the tour reaches Nuns Valley, you will immediately see a small village nestling between almost perpendicular mountains in the heart of the island.

The huge cauldron in which Nuns Valley is sitting was either formed by erosion, which is the more recent theory, or as many still believe, by volcanic activity. The village is very isolated and locals mainly live off what they cultivate. The local chestnuts are delicious and are used in everyday cooking. Every year locals celebrate the 'Chestnut Festival' for which the village is famous.

Upon your return we stop at the stunning fishing village of Câmara de Lobos. This is were Winston Churchill spent his time painting his beautiful landscapes and were you will be able to try the famous local drink - Poncha
