I’m here to suggest you… STOP Googling Madeira and save yourself days of research.
I did the work for you to save you TIME and MONEY.
Every time a friend comes to Madeira, I must list experiences and places to see, what to eat, and which restaurants to visit.
They also want to know the opening hours, so they miss nothing or risk arriving and finding out the doors closed… and an often-asked question is “what’s going on in Madeira”?
That’s how the idea of creating this e-book came about, and I admit I loved writing it. The more I explored and learned about Madeira, the more I fell in love with my island.
I created the Madeira Self-Driving Guide to help you experience the best of the Island.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
WHY BUY THIS E-BOOK?
There are so many options to consider, and this e-book will help you plan your trip from start to finish.
I’ll help you find the best time to travel to Madeira based on your interests, the documentation needed, how to get around and choose your hotel.
You won’t find the route recommendations and tips that I give you anywhere.
Some questions I answer are what to pack (checklists), best weather etc.
