Jorge was incredibly communicative and personalised our tour based on what we wanted to see and how long we wanted to walk (we got to see two waterfalls and walk a little longer!) He was very friendly, chatty and interesting and knew a lot about the island and the flora. Meeting him and the hike he took us on were real highlights of our trip to Madeira! Highly recommend booking with him!

Jorge is really nice! He took care of me the all time, showing me different paths of the island and telling me many information about the nature and the island itself! He knows all the paths and he is the best guide you can find on the island! Highly recommended!

Great way to get to know Madeira’s nature and history. We went to Rabaçal and the 25 Fountains’ Waterfall but Jorge can take you anywhere in the island. He knows a lot about botanic and he took great pictures of us. I can not recommend it enough!
