We booked the half day Levada tour whilst en route to Madeira via a cruise. It was really easy to book and as we had not been to Madeira before it was great as they said that they could pick us up from near the port.. I emailed a couple of times to make sure we were sure of where we would be picked up and Alice emailed us back promptly and even attached a map.. We were picked up as specified and our guide, Rosa was fantastic... she explained what our walk would entail and took time along the walk to explain to us about the plants, trees, the history of Madeira, how the levadas were constructed and how they are maintained.. it was really interesting.
We would definitely recommend booking with Lido Tours and will definitely book with them if we get the chance to go back to Madeira.. thank you for making our tour so enjoyable
Obrigado ao Rui que foi um excelente guia para a volta de Jeep !
Um belo dia passado com belas paisagens.

Dear Lido Tours
We have just returned from an excellent week’s holiday in Funchal. During our time there we took four tours with Lido tours and I am writing to thank you.
From the very beginning we were impressed. The online booking process was quick and easy. When we had booked we received confirmation very quickly and within a very short time we were given information about meeting times and places. The screen shots and maps from Google maps were very helpful indeed.
On each trip the minibus arrived on time and we joined the tour with no problems. Likewise at the end of the tour we were dropped off conveniently back at our hotel.
The three guides were excellent. José, Marco and Gama Madeira were friendly and helpful. All three were very knowledgeable about the places we saw. We were particularly impressed with Gama Madeira, who took two of the tours. He had a real love for and pride in his home island and the walking tour of Castelejo will remain a highlight of our holiday.
The tours were excellent value for money – we were surprised that they were not more expensive.
The minibuses were clean and comfortable and we felt safe even on the narrow mountain roads.
The itineraries for each tour were very good and it was fascinating to visit some less well-known places (like Fajã Escura with Gama Madeira). We saw lots of different places and the wonderful Madeiran weather made things even better.
On our next visit to Madeira we shall once again use Lido tours. We still have the Northern and Southern tours to do, as well as more levada walks.
We shall most certainly recommend Lido tours to friends and family – you are our Number One choice for Madeira tours and we give you a 5* rating!!
Please pass on our thanks to José, Marco and Gama Madeira.
With sincere thanks
What an extremely enjoyable day we've just had. Gama, our guide and driver was not only helpful, friendly and polite but also very knowledgeable about his native island. His driving skills were exemplary around all the narrow winding mountain roads through mist into sunshine. Our west island tour showed us what a beautiful island Madeira is. Should we return again in the future we look forward to Gama showing us more of his stunning homeland. Thank you for our wonderful experience.
We had a lovely half day walk along the Mimosa valley levada today. We were a small group which made it feel more personal and Sara our guide was very good at providing lots of information along the way. Lots of lovely views and just the right pace to enjoy the feel of the local madeiran way of life. Rounded off with a coffee stop and chat before heading back to Funchal. This is our 2nd levada walk and 3rd trip with Lido tours and each one has been great - well recommended.
We quite enjoyed our half-day tour to Nun's Valley. Gama was an excellent and fun guide. He is a native of the island and is a wealth of information.
He even pulled out a harmonica at one of the stops en route and played some tunes.
The views on the tour are extraordinary, even if there are some clouds hanging in the mountains.
The tour stops at a town with a touristy-type restaurant, where you can grab a beer with wonderful roasted chestnuts or a coffee and a piece of pie.
Nous voulons vous remercier pour votre confiance. Nous étions très contents de notre transfert aéroport-Enotel
le 28 janvier et l'Enotel-aéroport le 4 février (3 heures du matin ).
L'excursion dans le sud ( que nous avions déjà faite ) avec Marco était aussi très bien.
Nous espérons revenir à Madère et nous serons intéressés pour refaire les transferts avec vous.
Last week we took 2 walking tours (High Peaks Wed 11 Jan and Green Cauldron Fri 13 Jan) and the full day West tour (Sun 15 Jan) and were very impressed with everything about Lido Tours.
The office (Sofie) was very friendly and efficient.
Our guide on the walking tours was Sara, she was excellent. Lovely personality, had a wide knowledge of plants, geology and history of Madeira. Also very good leadership and group management.
Roberto was the driver of our island tour. He too was a credit to Lido tours, a careful driver who gave us lots of information and handled the different languages of the group well.
Overall would happily recommend Lido Tours to anybody.
