Bruce G, November 2015 - 5 star rating: Highly Recommended
"We really enjoyed the wine and food tour with our congenial and informative guide Fabio. He told us a lot about Madeiran customs as we sampled a wide variety of local food and drink. As well as a range of wines and beer, this included a scabbard fish sandwich accompanied by a passion fruit soft drink and a strong poncha with peanuts and olives in a typical bar.
You certainly don't need any breakfast before this tour!"
JC u “A great morning!”, 26th February 2016 - 5 star rating: Highly Recommended
"Had a great food and wine tour organised by Discovering Madeira. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and informative. We found out so much about the island and its people through trying the local food and wine including the beer and passion fruit drink. Plenty of stops and generous amounts of food to try - don't have breakfast! Highly recommended."
