    And another great tour with Green Devil Safari. We were only 3 people + our guide Spencer. So it was a perfect tour. A lot to see and a lot of fun! Thank you!

    The jeep was old and extremely uncomfortable. Eight adults were squeezed into a small jeep. I had a middle seat. If I wasn't so far away from my hotel, I would have left the tour and called a taxi. Our tour guide was very nice and tried to make it a fun tour, however, my husband

    Response from greendevilsafarim, General Manager at Nun's Valley Open 4X4 Tour
    Responded 28 Sep 2019
    Dear toddrU3..., Thank you for tour feedback. I’m glad you had a great day with your guide, that is from our responsability having a great team to make amazing work as tour guides. About the vehicle: Green Devil Safari, I and our team, we are not car builders, engineers or car designers, but we organize excursions in 4x4 cars on the island of Madeira. "Eight adults were squeezed into a small jeep", the Land Rover Defender 110 takes up to 9 persons (in UK the same vehicle 110 (same size) can take up to 12 persons, please check for LR 110 12 seaters). So, this complain about the car, it should be done on the Land Rover website / factory, engineers, designers etc, and Euro NCAP, as they were the ones who set and aprove the car with 9 seats, exported and sold the car all over the world including America or USA. Once again “we are not car builders, engineers or car designers”. Before you booked this tour, you knew what type of 4x4 or "jeep" it would be, you could check at the photos on TripAdvisor, Facebook etc, and its the same 4x4 vehicles that we have on social media that we use daily for our excursion and you can see the feedback of the customers. You have to understand that, when you book a 4x4 tour, it will be a 4x4 vehicle, that they are not so confortable as a Mercedes class S, Jaguar XJ or the american car (since you are American) that you have huge limousines, Come on..you are in Europe not America. You must also understand that the tour you booked is not private and is written “small group up to 9 persons per vehicle”, so the maximum capacity is correct and we do not exceed this number. We have private tours that would be more comfortable for you, so you wouldn't have to share the car with other customers, which would make you feel more comfortable and not “squeezed”. Than you for understanding, and after your reflection you will see that I am really right, Green Devil Safari has never been a car builder “Eight adults were squeezed into a small jeep”, but a team of friendly guides that will give you a pleasant time in Madeira, showing unknown areas of difficult access (we need 1 4x4 vehicle), Madeira's history, flora and fauna, etc. Thank you for taking the time to read this message. All the best..

    Had a great afternoon with Nuno as our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area & stopped along the way to pick herbs & flowers to show us. We had the jeep to ourselves as it was a dull day but it didn’t spoil the experience. The views from the top were fantastic above
