We love our work and love to show and share our beautiful island to the world! Our biggest reward is the feedback from our dear customers. And being a small sustainable company, in a small team and taking a very small % of the number of people the big companies do, we don’t have a huge budget for advertising, so we rely on our customers to do it, For us all the distinctions and every single word received, is very special, and make us very proud in a humble and thankful way, as being awarded by TripAdvisor with the Certificate of Excellence from 2013 to 2019, featuring Up Mountain Madeira on “Hall of Fame”, just makes our heart full!

Thank you all so much for sharing your passion through your reviews –  we believe that keeping people happy is the best advertising we can do, so thank you so much to all who have helped us, and recommended us to share the word to mouth!
