About this tour...

Start your day by visiting the most famous fishing village in Madeira - Câmara de Lobos, where it’s caught the traditional fish Espada - black scabbard fish, unique to the seas of Madeira. This village was also Sir Winston Churchill’s favourite place to relax and paint, when he visited the island and stayed at Reid’s Palace Hotel. Take the old winding road, where you can admire the agriculture fields and vineyards, to reach Cabo Girão, the highest sea cliff in Europe at 580 metres, with its Skywalk viewpoint. Continue to the highest mountains at 1000 metres before heading to Porto Moniz. There you can see or experience the natural saltwater swimming pools open all year round, the volcanic Lava pools.
Lunch can be organised in a local restaurant, before going back.

Meet your guide

Hello, I’m Cristina and I was born in Funchal, Madeira Island. Raised in a big family of girls and tourist guides... three of my sisters are guides, since I was a little girl my dream was always to be a guide.
I’m an official tourist guide, qualified and certified by the Madeira Hotel and Tourism School, one of the top Tourism Schools in Portugal. With an experience of almost 30 years, I work especially with private tours, for the guests staying in Belmond Reid’s Palace Hotel, owned by the Louis Vuitton Group LVMH, and one of the most emblematic hotels in Madeira and in the World.
By the way, I wrote a small article about this hotel. You can check it at the Madeira Official Tourist Guides Website:
I am very proud of my Island Madeira and can’t wait to show you around.
I am very passionate and positive and I’m sure you will enjoy your tours in my island... So come on, and join me!
