Drive yourself Off-Road? Private Tours? Safari Tours? Is it dangerous? Am I going to be able to drive the car? Is it for everyone?
Well, we understand that when you think of Off-Roading your mind just becomes flooded with thoughts.
We won’t put you in any situation that you’re not prepared to handle.
We do normal tours, of the “Live Like a Local” kind. With Off-Road Driving Experiences.
All the paths we do are accessible to anyone, as long as you know what you are doing.
And we’re there all the way with you just to ensure that you are developing you’re off road driving skills and to help you build your confidence.
The truth is that sometimes someone is more adventurous and along the way we may find one or two obstacles apart from the normal track.
This video is one good example of the Panda’s 4×4 excellent off-roading capabilities.
Usually, our guide does the climb first just to show how easy it’s done. After people see how easy the car tackles the climb, they lose fear and face the challenge. Until this day, we never got stuck or in trouble. But we always collect awesome and cool moments.
Last but not least I will share you a video of some bloopers and situations we had when we were developing our business, hope you enjoy!

Poncha is a local drink that people in Madeira drink since the first settlers came to Madeira.
Madeira in the beginning, was widely know for it’s sugar cane production.

Like a Buggy on steroids?
I was doing a private tour with a nice couple, and we have stopped to taste a Poncha after they have been driving Off-Road.
As I usually do, I asked them their opinion about the Off-Road Driving Experience.
One of them replied to me almost instantly:
“It´s like a Buggy on Steroids! “
I have to true with you, at first, it didn’t make much sense for me.
But then he care to explain:
- You drive the car also
- You get to places you can’t go in a normal car!
- Because the Panda is 4wd it can go to places where a Buggy wouldn’t dream
- You have always the guide with you, giving you the best of a local experience.
- You don’t have to get as dirty or wet as you would on a buggie.
- You have the guide always teaching you the best off-road techniques.
- You can go as a family, buggy only takes 2 people!
“So, it’s a Buggie ride but on steroids!” – They told us.
We have to agree.
We’ll let you a small video of of tour we did last Autumn, in São Jorge, in our Breathtaking Laurissilva Tour
