This Fall we will be in Madeira and are loooking for a good private guide for us and another couple. We have been to Madeira before but the other couple has not. Any recommendations and email addresses would be appreciated.
We were on a TA on the Celebrity Galaxy last fall, and one of our fellow cruisers arranged a group tour with Strawberry world tours. They did a 9 hour, "Best of the West" tour with a bus and the price was $25 Euros pp., a real bargain compared to those offered by the ship. They appeard to be very flexible as to group size and itinerary, and did a very nice job for us.
Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org. As you already know, this is a beautiful and friendly island, and I know you will enjoy your repeat visit.
