We are very pleased that we went with Lido Tours, that is the Local Tour Agent for Viator.
Our Tour Guide was the very pleasant and knowledgeable Mr.Gama. He briefed us on the Route , Timings and more importantly about The Do’s and Don’t ( Health and Safety) .
The Route of The West Coast Tour was awesome , as we were able to learn and see so much about this beautiful Island , The farmers have many challenges and are doing a fantastic job. They toil to produce many Cash Crops, that cling onto the steep sided slopes / terraces of the huge Mountain Ranges. The fruits grown are like Grapes ( For Madeira Wine) , Small Banners , Sugarcane for Molasses and Sirup for Many usages.
Our favourite beauty spots were The Highlands(Watch out for Marauding Cows) Village Churches , Churchill Bay and Porta Moniz - Fabulous and Must See !
We must mention that over the years, we have Booked several Tours with Viator in many Countries around the World and have always received First Class Service -
Well Done and Thank You so much .

We had a great day on the West Day Tour. Our driver/guide Gema was friendly and created a good atmosphere. He told us a lot of information about history, local living, plants and nature. We were lucky when the weather was fine and clear. The tour was a great experience and worth the money. We really enjoyed the day.

This is a nice tour with an interesting overall view of the west side. Our guide was wonderful, nice and gave great insight and went above and beyond to make the tour enjoyable. The only consideration is that we booked a tour in English and at the end it was French and English...at the end the guide made his best to accomodate both these 2 and some Portuguese but they should not mix groups like this...or at least make it clear that it will be a multi language tour.
