Hello world! Greetings from Madeira to you all.
As you all already know, we’re based in Madeira Island, and we’re knonw for our Private Jeep Safari Tours with Off-Road Driving Experience.
Yes, you can drive our cars Off-Road in our tours. (Only if you want to of course).
Now that you got it, we also want to tell you that we do “Live Like a Local” tours, so you’ll get the full immersion on our culture and doings.
For that reason we offer lunch in Full-Day Tours, we’ll teach how to cook the Espetada, the traditional Madeira’s barbecue, like we locals do: meat, bread and wine. If you don’t eat meat we can arrange a solution with you. As we’re on a private tour, we’ll be glad to find something that pleases you. (And we’ll learn something new)
If this wasn’t enough, we will also lead you to the local bars we’re you can taste the real Poncha, the most traditional beverage here, made with sugar cane rum!
We’re now launching a new campaign until 31th of December Of 2018 where, if you buy 2 private tours, the second one will have a 20% Discount.
This campaign is only available trough bookings on our website.
The bookings are per car, if you are a small group and you book two cars, you already have a 20% discount on the second one.

Tours tend to get booked fast!
As you already know, we at Panda 4×4 Tours are specialized in providing outstanding Off-Road Driving Experiences here in Madeira Island, Portugal. We only do Private Tours, so we can always give our costumers full attention and to be able to teach them really the basic concepts of off-road driving while we show them the local way of living. This is the story of a german couple we were lucky to have met while they were spending vacation during Carnival season here in Madeira.
André, the big german in the photo (he has italian roots, hence the name) was already an experienced off-road driver. He owns a Ford Ranger Wildtrack in Cologne and on their 4th time in Madeira they wanted to do something different. And he wanted to drive himself off-road here. So, we did a custom tour for him, with more time driving off-road and less sightseeing and what I can tell you is that he booked the second tour and is already thinking of buying a Panda 4×4 himself, to go play in the mud or snow in Germany with his brother.
The first time we did a variation of our #1 Tour – On Top of The World. We just connected after some off-road and Poncha and André immediately wanted to book a second tour if he had time. This time we drove our most classical Fiat, the Sisley 4×4. As everyone, André was astonished with the Panda 4×4 handling and easiness of driving off-road. And also it’s off-road abilities.
The second day we went Off-Roading we chose to do a variation of #2 – Sea & Woods and André had the chance to try our other car the Fiat Panda 4×4 Country Club, a more recent car with another engine, but as capable as the first one.
We just want to share with you that André went back to Germany thinking of buying a Fiat Panda 4×4 for himself… Hummmm…
We hang with them for a little bit more after the tours, here are some of the photos highlights we took when we were together.
Last but not least we have a short video of our off-road fun with them here:
We just want to share with you that André went back to Germany thinking of buying a Fiat Panda 4×4 for himself… Hummmm… So he can play in the snow and in the as he did with us back there!

Merry Christmas everyone!
We at Panda 4×4 Tours, wanted to celebrate Christmas with some of our closest friends.
We brought our Panda 4×4 and some of them brought their Jeep’s. For some it was the first Off-Road Driving Experience.
And what a day we had!
We did a variation of our tour Breathtaking Laurissilva and everyone loved it.
This is a small video our dear Brazilian friend Karla Alcântara made from our tour.
It rained all day, but we managed to have a blast!
We want to thank you Karla, for all the pictures and videos you filmed and passed to us.
But, most of all we want to thank you for all the passion and the good vibe you use in everything you do!
Well, Winter is coming, and it’s the best time for Off-Roading!
We’ll be adding more videos as soon as possible, follow us at:
Espetada is a traditional dish from Madeira Island, Portugal. Espetada is a barbecue made with large chunks of beef flavoured with garlic and salt. In the old days people would roast it in a laurel stick, so the meat will get the laurel flavor from the stick.
Nowadays, as the Laurel Forest is protected usually people use Inox sticks to grill the meat and in that case you will flavour the meat with salt, garlic a laurel leaves.
The real Espetada, not the ones you taste at restaurants, will be eaten with local bread, usually “Pão de Casa”, a type of bread with sweet potato, or other typical bread like “Pão de Santana” with butter. You woul place the chunks of beef in the bread so it can absorb all the juices from the meat and you eat the bread at the end, after the meat.
Usually, you will drink “Vinho Seco”, a cheap wine from Madeira with Espetada.
In the last years Espetada and Bolo do Caco has became the beef’s main dish in Madeira’s cuisine, so you can taste it everywhere.
Usually, in a restaurant, Espetada will be served with Milho frito (fried corn in English) French fries and salad. Join Bolo do Caco and a good wine and you’ll an awesome meal.
This is very good. Really good. But it’s not traditional!
If you want to taste the real Espetada, like the people from Madeira cook it on their homes or their picnic’s, you have to come with us.
We deliver the real deal!
Out in the opening, you will have the proper cooking experience after our Private Tour and our Off-Road Driving Experience.
It’s easy to cook, it tastes wonderfully, and you learn how to do it so you can take it with you abroad.
It doesn’t get any better than this, does it?
This experience is only available trough our Full-Day Tours, Breathtaking Laurissilva and Soul & Essence or trough our custom/tailor made tours.
