  • An excellent transfer and experience visiting the peaks of Madeira. Big thank you to our driver Luis who was really friendly and answered all of our questions with a smile. He recommended some great restaurants on the island too!

    5 out of 5 experience! They sent full instructions a day before via whatsapp, we were well prepared. The pickup was timely and the driver shared lots of insights about the island and the upcoming hike. Definitely worth having the pickup on the other side of the island instead of leaving the car and having to walk all the way back (the hike is quite difficult but views are stunning).

    Excellent service. Elizabeth sent lots of information the day before including pick up time and weather forecast. Diego the driver was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. He was also a really safe driver! Highly recommend!

  • Amazing day made all the better by Pico Transfers. The communication post purchase was brilliant and the transfers the day itself even better. It felt like we had a full time tour guide!! Pico went above and beyond to make sure we had a great day. Don’t drive, go Pico!!

    Super organisiert! Ich konnte online den Transfer buchen und bezahlen. Da in dieser Woche das Wetter schlecht war, an dem Tag wo ich gebucht habe, haben Sie mir per Email und Whatsapp geschrieben und das Datum kostenlos geändert. Am Tag vorher bekommt man dann per WhatsApp die Details für den Transfer. Der Fahrer war sehr pünktlich und hat un während der Fahrt noch Infos von der Umgebung gegeben. Die Abholung am Treffpunkt war wieder sehr pünktlich und wir sind dann noch kurz über Santana gefahren und haben die Häuser mit den Strohdächen angeschaut. Ich würde diesen Service jederzeit wiederholen!

  • Pico Transfers ist zu 100% empfehlenswert. Wir buchten die Sunrise Tour und waren pünktlich vor Sonnenaufgang am Pico do Arieiro. Am Tag zuvor bekam ich eine WhatsApp Nachricht mit allen wichtigen Infos (Abholung, Ablauf, Wetter etc.) für den Wandertag. Bei Fragen hätte man sich jederzeit melden können. Luís, der Fahrer, war sehr herzlich und humorvoll. Auf der Fahrt erfuhren wir noch sehr viele Highlights über die Insel. Da unsere Gruppe pünktlich zurück kam, gab uns Luis auf dem Rückweg mit dem Minivan eine kleine Privatführung durch Santana.

    Very impressed with the professional service offered by Pico Transfers. Our driver Diogo was professional, fun, and an excellent driver. I only expected a drive to the hike but he shared lots of information with us along the road so it was like a mini tour at the same time.

    Hi Elisabeth, just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for the great organisation on Sunday it made our trek very easy. Can you please thank Luis for the great driving and all the useful information he gave and being able to see the traditional houses at Santana was an unexpected bonus. We obviously had great weather to do the trek which made it all the more beautiful. We are already looking to come back to Madeira next year and we will certainly get in touch to see if you offer any other treks when we do. Once again thank you very much. Dave and Mark. 😃

  • Pico transfers worked great for hiking Pico do Arieiro. The driver, Luis, did a great job and we also appreciated his restaurant recommendations!

    I highly recommend this service for people who enjoy solo hiking rather than doing it with a group and a guide! It's really cool that you provide transport in this concept. The process of organising was very easy and I really appreciate the top quality communication and clarity (detailed info, maps etc). The driver was super friendly and talkative, he obviously loves his job wholeheartedly and is really dedicated. He provided us some extra information and answer questions. If you are looking for transfer to Pico de Arieiro it is definitely great choice!

    Pico Transfers is offering a very useful shuttle service for the PR1 walk from Pico do Areeiro to Pico Ruivo. The communication and planning was quite remarkable, the driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. The walk itself is not very challenging, however for me it was a great opportunity to relax and meet other people on the route, after a few days of longer walks. I really hope to see more routes proposed by Pico Transfers in the near future, especially on the west side of the island (e.g. Rabaçal, Fanal)

  • Super schöne Wanderung, ein absolutes Highlight unserer Woche auf Madeira. Buchung, Abholung und Fahrt haben reibungslos geklappt und Kevin gab uns auf der Fahrt viele wertvolle Tipps und Informationen über die Wanderung und die Insel. Beim nächsten Besuch werden wir definitiv nochmal mit pico transfers fahren, dann aber die Sunrisetour buchen.

    thumb Tine Kongs

    Clear communication beforehand including additional information about the hike itself, clear time schedule which was perfectly met. Had sufficient time to do the hike including some resting time, but barely had to wait for the return drive. Kevin is not only a social, funny driver but also drives reliably in the mountains without a rush and thus a very safe experience. Would 100% recommend

    Top, top, top! Kevin holte uns pünktlich ab, er war sehr freundlich und redefreudig. Er erklärte uns den Ablauf und schon ging es los. Im Notfall wäre eine Dame auch per WhatsApp zu erreichen. Bei der Abholung war er natürlich auch wieder pünktlich. Bei der Rückfahrt erzählte uns er viel Wissenswertes und Empfehlungen. Jeden Fall besser als man einen Transfer jemals erwarten könnte. Wenn es 10 Sterne geben würde, würden ich die auch geben. Weiter so, Kevin!

    Brilliant service, very efficient and quick responses via WhatsApp as well as all the information you may need! Diogo was a brilliant tour guide as well as a driver and open to answer any questions you may need about the island as well as the hike! Thanks again

    Vandaag een mooie wandeling gemaakt op Madeira. Door Pico Transfers heen gebracht en opgehaald. Alles keurig volgens afspraak. Ook de informatie die je van te voren krijgt is helder en correct. Tijdens de wandeling kan je appen wanneer je vragen hebt en je krijgt meteen reactie. De chauffeur was heel fijn in het contact en wist ons ook veel te vertellen tijdens de rit. Absoluut een aanrader. Thank you Diogo!

  • Best hike in my life, hands down 😊 Elisabeth and Kevin are very friendly, professional and punctual, making this experience as good as it gets. Would definitely recommend and will be using their service again in the future.

    This is the only way to do this hike. Yes you can do the out and back but you had better have the physical and mental stamina to complete the route. One way makes this a lovely but still challenging hike. And Diogo our driver was informative, and really safe driving the steep and bendy roads to and from the hike. I would highly recommend Pico Transfers.

    Super Service, pünktliche Abholung. Wir können Pico Transfer nur empfehlen. Abends zuvor per WhatsApp die Zeit der Abholung erhalten. Kevin der uns gefahren hat, ist super pünktlich und kann einiges über Madeira erzählen. Elisabeth ist immer über WhatsApp zu erreichen. Die Tour war der Hammer Für uns definitiv 5 Sterne plus

  • Only transfer we could find without guide during the walk. A-star service. Communication spot on, Elisabeth sends you detailed info before the hike on what to expect on the day. I didn’t have any questions as everything was covered. Kevin was on time and picked me directly up from my hotel. He is very informed on Madeira, and gave me and the other passengers some really good information about this beautiful island. It is well priced, the drive very comfortable; the vehicle nice and clean and Kevin’s good driving. I would highly recommend booking and using their service.
