Excellent tour company…

Great value for money, with excellent views of the island from various locations.
We also did the Go West tour and the Nuns Valley half-day tour which were also very enjoyable.

Great tour! Highly recommended.

Hugo guided us not only in the north of Madeira but also gave us a lot of background information about the culture, the nature, the history etc. Hé did this in good English and with humor. Hé drives in a very safe manner. A top performance.

Happy with Madeira Happy Tours 😀

I was really lucky to start exploring Madeira island, by choosing one full day tour with MADEIRA HAPPY TOURS (The East Tour). Our driver & guide Hugo, offered an ultimate experience, by providing knowledge to our small group about the island’s past and present. While he was driving safely to several beautiful destinations, a new and very well cared mini van, he was narrating about island’s history, flora and fauna, geography, economy, culture, civilization, heritage etc. He is a very well educated, professional guide with a sense of humor, who kept my interest live throughout the trip. The day’s program was very well designed, not at all tiring, or boring, giving me the time to see many interesting places and beautiful images. For me it was the best introduction to the island, which increased the value of my travel’s experience. Thank you Hugo for this amazing day and thank you Madeira Happy Tours and Mr Marco Ferreira for your excellent service, organization and communication. You made me happy!!!

Perfect guided walk. I booked with Happy Tours. Their guide was great. Lots of information about Madeira. Were a little bit busy, but the view is amazing.

Thoroughly Enjoyed

This was the last of 4 trips we did with Happy Tours and we enjoyed the whole day.
The driver/guide was excellent in every way. There was 10 of us on the tour, and he suggested we could book a 3 course meal at a restaurant in Santana via him if we wished. All 10 of us took him up on the offer, which turned out to be very good value for money. The 90 minute break gave us plenty of time to have the meal and a quick look around the village. It also gave us the opportunity to get to know our fellow travellers, who came from many parts of the world, but all spoke English.

Happy Tours, Happy Tourist

First time out of Funchal and it couldn't have gone any better. The bus was comfortable and we had a happy group. Luis was a fantastic guide and very informative. The fact he had German and English tourists didn't phase him. It was more than just look at that but gave a real understanding of the west of the island, a real feat, from it's industries through to excellent recommendations at the different stops. Thank you

Beautiful Nun's Valley tour

Excellent tour. Luis, our guide and driver was very knowledgeable and told us so much in the 3 hours. Overlooks Bica dos barelos and Eira do Serro were amazing, and then Nun's Valley! Such scenery- my phone camera did not do it justice. Luis showed us the old road where residents could be cut off for days if bad weather. Our stop on the way back at Camaro dos Lobos gave us a chance to walk around the harbor

West Tour - excellent way of seeing the island

Excellent way to see different parts of the island with a long stop at Porto Moniz for the volcanic pools. Hugo was an excellent driver guide imparting lots of knowledge about the island, its history and flora. He was interesting and informative. We took a picnic lunch to allow enough time at the pools for a good swim. There was enough time at each of the other stops too. The mini bus was also a good size. In all an excellent day and good way to see the island.

Jorge was an excellent tour guide whilst doing this walk, friendly funny and very knowledgable. The walk was tough but well worth the views and was an amazing experience. We used happy tours for a couple of trips when in Madeira and couldn’t recommend them enough!

Brilliant and well organised.

Superb experience from start to finish. Easy to book and the chap in the shop was very helpful in recommending walks. The bus collected us from the hotel exactly on time and our guide (Elton) was excellent. The walk was simply stunning, beautiful scenery with well maintained paths and walkways to preserve the local wildlife and fauna.
Elton’s knowledge of local plants, animals and the island’s history was amazing and he really helped to make our day special. The final leg was a visit to a local cafe for Poncha or coffee before heading back. A fantastic day - thank you to Happy Tours.

Excellent day trip !

Luis "senior" was our host for this trip and from the moment he picked us up he was friendly and engaging making us feel really comfortable. The trip is real value for money ( this was the best price on the island so was a little unsure if that would be reflected in the quality of the service but absolutely NOT)when you think about where you are taken and how you would otherwise access the places this trip was excellent value. Luis lives locally and he gave us plenty of information and tips along the way. I wouldn't hesitate to book another tour with them !

Beautiful views with a friendly guide

We booked this tour last minute at 2215 the night before as the shop was still open in town and we wanted to get out exploring, we were not disappointed!
Our guide picked us up promptly from our hotel before picking others up from the main office and other hotels.
Throughout the entire journey our driver/guide Hugo gave us lots of information on the history of the island and what it is famous for, he also talked alot about different plants and fruits throughout our journey. We made various stops throughout the day and had almost a full 2 hours in Porto Moniz (sadly was a little too cold/windy for me to dip my toe in the water). The island itself was great, some beautiful scenery!
We are definitely booking another tour with the company before we head home, the problem is choosing which one?!

Fantastic Go East tour with Luis

We did the Go East tour last week, our guide and driver was Luis. He was excellent, really friendly, helpful and gave us lots of information.
The whole tour was perfect, we saw so many incredible sights, we loved the whole day, it was fantastic and Luis is a perfect guide.

We wish we had taken a photo of Luis to keep with our Madeira photo album!
