Authentic insight into Madeira

★★★★★ Reviewed by Franziska on 2023-01-10
We spent a lovely day with Lucy visiting a banana plantation, where we could ask all our questions about banana famring. Then we went to a center for agricultural development (fruit trees) where we saw many different kinds of fruit trees and learned about grafting methods. After that we visited a banana cooperative and saw how the bananas are delivered and packaged. Afterwards we headed to Henriques&Henriques for some wine tasting before going for lunch where we had traditional food from Madeira. To finish off the day we saw a farm with dairy and meat cattle. We really appreciated Lucy's vast knowledge about agriculture and Madeira in general. We had a great time and recommend the it to anyone who wants to do a tour that is a bit different from the other touristic tours.

Excellent, informative Day

This was an excellent all day tour and one of the highlights of our holiday. Although we had toured the island extensively by hire car we gained so much more from this private tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions and much more. We are keen gardeners and the diversity of the island flora was of great interest to us. We came away feeling we knew much more about Madeira her history, economy and people than we would otherwise have done. Highly recommended.

Lucy gave an amazing farm tour.
