We booked a private whole day trip in a Range Rover to the west of the island through our hotel (Quinta Da Casa Branca) and we enjoyed every minute of it. Our driver Jaime was very knowledgable and his English was very good. Jaime was always on hand to answer any questions but also gave us plenty of personal time... More

We had so much fun on our first Segway morning where you are taught by Jaime how to ride/drive one that we booked another morning in them where being professional rally class drivers by this point we were allowed to go much further afield! The Segways are in the window of the Madeira Story Centre. There seems to be no... More

Have just returned from the best trip we have ever had on holiday anywhere. Jaime took us on a tour of the east of the island and to the highest point. As there were only two of us in the Land Rover Discovery, the trip was adjusted as we went along. We visited places we would not have seen on... More

We saw a Segway in the window of the Madeira Story Centre (opposite the cable car terminal) and enquired. We were given Jaime's contact details and gave him a call. He fitted us in for the following day at 5.30PM and met him at the Centre. He was ready and waiting with the Segways when we arrived and quickly got... More

We found this attraction on TripAdvisor by accident, and arranged our booking via e-mail for my birthday. Guide, Jaime Ferreira, checks his mail regularly, and replies promptly. My partner and I had never been on a Segway before, and were pleased to be given a good 20 minutes of expert training, before the 2 hour tour began! Soon, we were... More

James, one of By Natures guides took us on a day long tour starting at Nun's Valley and then going to the north east tip of the island and then finally to one of the villages on the north coast. James was an excellent guide, very informative but without the tendency of so many guides of feeling they have to... More

Usually my husband and I take ourselves off levada walking but this year, having both had viruses we wanted a more gentle walk and the Ribiero Frio - Balcoes walk looked good but getting there was going to be a problem without our own transport. Enter Mr Jaime and his Range Rover. We were the only people on the trip... More

We decided somewhat last minute to book a two-hour Segway tour for our single day in Funchal. The email correspondence from the operator and guide, Jaime Ferreira, was timely and professional. The meeting site, Madeira Story Center, was easy to find as he described and Jaime even sent a photo in advance so we would recognize the location. We thoroughly... More
