What people are saying about Santana, Portugal

There is a reason this hike is so popular. Beautiful views around Madeira's highest peak are worth every single sweat drop. Sorry, I forget the name of our driver, but he was great too, thanks for everything. The only thing I would change would be starting time to an earlier hour, especially on a sunny day like we had. Obrigado

Super experience, the guide was very friendly and informative and nothing was too much trouble!! We even stopped by Santaner to see the traditional houses on the way home. You will feel the hike if you’re not used to hiking but it is well worth it, the views are stunning!! Would 100% recommend this company.

Really well organised. I've done the hike a few years ago as part of a guided group and we had to wait for others throughout, so the self guided aspect really appealed to me. Luis was super friendly and funny.

Great timing when picking up. Excellent hike worth every drop of sweat. Very informative driver. If you could do only one hike in Madera this is the one.I totally recommend it.

Very good service, no delays, knowledgeable, friendly and very friendly Very happy with service and experience!
