Fantastic Tour
, Oct 2021
8am from Madeira arrive Porto Santo 10.30 then a fantastic tour of the island by 4 x 4. Authentic farm, wine tasting, beautiful views and a menagerie in an oasis followed by 3 hrs for lunch and beach. Ferry back at 7pm. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.

The beaches are beautiful, soft sand and clean. We had a nice tour around the island which took around an hour and 30 minutes.

Amazing day, island and beach :)

Excellent day trip. Great initial tour of the island and then you spend the day at the fantastic beach in Porto Santo! Worth staying overnight to get two days here as the ferry ride is over 2 hours. Really enjoyed the whole day here!
The tour itself was brilliant. Lots...

The tour itself was brilliant. Lots of photo opportunities and the tour guide was very informative and helpful. Saw some amazing views from high points and visited a very attractive old house. The only issue is during winter season the ferry from Funchal only does 1 run so it arrives at 10:30 and then doesn't leave until 18:00. The tour ended at about 13:00 which left me with 4 hours picked up at 17:00 to find something to do. If you're prepared or have kids you can go to the beach and catch the sun or go for a swim but I had neither so I got bored fairly quickly and just ended up walking through town and out onto the pier just staring at the amazing views. Nothing wrong with the tour or guide, just didn't know there would be such a long wait.
