What our clients say about us and our adventures

Habe 5 Tage gebucht. Die Touren waren jeden Tag verschieden. Joao ist wirklich ein super Guide und kennt auf der Insel jeden Trail. Er passt die Schwierigkeiten an den Fahrer an und schafft so Vertrauen. Ein wirklicher Profi. Die Husqvarna ist top gepflegt und optimal für die Touren. Die Aussichten sind sensationell. Ich kann MOUNTAIN GADGET nur weiterempfehlen.
Es gibt keinen besseren Weg Madeira zu erkunden. Gesamtbewertung: Volle Punktzahl mit Sternchen !!!

From the first telephone contact Joao couldn’t help enough, every question i asked i got a response within minutes. TOP CLASS HOST.

On the day of my experience i was collected and and dropped off at no extra cost from my chosen destination.

I arrived at Mountain Gadgets HQ greeted with brang new TC300 huskies. All kit was also provided 100% professional fro. Start to finish.

We set off, with joao’s obvious passion and knowledge of his chosen sport i knew i was in safe hands, he completed a quick assessment to gauges my ability and chose a course that pushed me to my limits but also made it an amazing and enjoyable day, we stopped for lunch the food was rather tasty also.

The views from the top of the mountain i dont believe you would see them if you were on foot. Overall it was value for money and without a doubt if i visit again it would be one of the first places i would book into.

Thanks again

Best Regards

Big recommendation for all level riders. Alltough I had no enduro experience I had a blast. Joao will challenge you according to your skill and in the end you’ll look back to an amazing day. The bikes are kept in great condition and the gear was clean.
Go book a tour, you won’t regret it.

This is some of the best money I’ve spent in a long time. João is an excellent guide with lots of experience and patience to explain and provide tips and tricks along the way. João knows the area like his own backyard so you’re guaranteed a unique experience where you experience the nature and outback on Madeira. Although I’ve been riding for ten years on the road, I really felt that I significantly improved my riding style in a matter of only one day. I would highly recommend going with mountain gadget for the experience and for rapid improvement.

Jao is a great dude, it doesn’t feel like a tour more just like going for a big ride with your mates in some hilly madeiraian mountains. Good variety of terrain. The 300 tpis are perfect for the mountains, all the moto gear is comfy and modern. He pushes you as well get you out of your comfort zone and try a few things. He’s not a bad photographer either! Highly recommended.

Great coaching, great tour and great view, nothing more to add! Definitely a must do in Madeira!

I’m already living in Madeira since a couple of months and wanted to rediscover the island differently, so I joined Mountain Gadget for a Enduro Motorbike tour of the Island. If you have a motorcycle license I would really recommend! I had no previous off road experience and last time I drove was 10 years ago…

It was my first enduro experience ever. Great adventure you can not miss visiting Madeira. Lovely dirt tracks, trails, levadas, forests and steepy hills – all this is only begining. You can choose half day, full day or even a week trip to discover mysterious of the island. Joao leads you to the edge of your imagination and endurance.

Excelente oportunidade para experimentar o enduro / todo terreno em motos de 2 rodas! O Guia é muito experiente e tem um grande conhecimento dos terrenos por onde nos leva, e sabe por onde nos levar, mediante o andamento de cada um, e sabe até onde nos pode levar, sem nos pôr em risco! aconselho vivamente a experimentar! Vale muito a pena!
Obrigado Jota pelo dia super bem passado. Um grande abraço. 💪💪💪

I spent 3 wonderful days this October combining my love for off-road bikes with my love for sunny retreats.
Everything is taken care off by your wonderful host Joao, who can switch between tour host & trainer at the flick of a starter button. This was great for me as I wanted to hit the trails but also get a chance to see some of the island.
The tour is tailored to your abilities and requirements. I was happy to take things at a leisurely pace but if you wanted to scream around leaving a dust trail visible from space, then I can assure you Joao has the skills to craft such a dusty day out.
Joao did a good job of keeping the knobblies dirt side, and road work was thankfully kept to a minimum. There is plenty of challenging terrain in Maderia to keep you smiling and great conversation to be had when you want to hit the stop switch and explain how you ‘would have cleared that’ if you were on your own bike…honest!!
Weirdly there never seems to be any level ground in Madeira as you always seem to be going either up or down!
I loved all 3 days and will definitely be returning for round 2 in 2021.

La CRF 450 est très puissante et le service de Joao est très bien! J’avais l’impression de rouler avec un ami! Equipement complet sécurisé compris. Bon rapport qualité prix!

Absoluter Hammer-Tag!
Bin morgens von Madeira mit der Fähre rüber nach Porto Santo und Joao hat mich eingesammelt. Easy.
Die Honda CRF 450 is nix für Anfänger 😉
Das Terrain ist vielseitig und Joao passt den Schwierigkeitsgrad super dem Können des Fahrers an. Hat mich perfekt gefordert 😉
Ob Sanddünen, Geröllfelder, schnelles Uphill, Technische anspruchsvolle Parts, Waldstücke, oder einfach Feldwege langknallen.. alles an einem Tag und Top Qualität! Und dazu noch unglaubliche Aussicht! War ne privat Führung über Porto Santo mit SUPER Guide.. Nach getaner Arbeit – ab ans türkisfarbene Meer schwimmen und noch ein Bierchen! TOP!
Wenn ich nächstes mal da bin und Joao wieder auf Madeira ist mach ich auf jeden Fall eine Madeira-Tour !!
ABSOLUT ZU EMPFEHLEN!
Danke! Und Grüße
Bis bald…:)

I did a one day tour with João from Mountain Gadget and it was awesome!
João is very friendly and professional and the bikes are in perfect condition.
We drove various terrain and joão picked a very nice trail that suited my experience, it had exactly that what i was hoping for.
I had the feeling i was driving with my friends instead of driving with a guide.
Many nice conversations on the way when we stopped for something to drink or lunch.
If you love Enduro and you are on Madeira than i can highly recommend doing a tour with Mountain Gadget, João will give you all you want from beginner to expert.
With great knowledge of driving and the terrain on Madeira.
I will definitely coming back for another tour!
Thanks a lot my Friend

Madeira has lots to offer a beautiful place to visit especially if you love motocross and enduro
I searched on air bnb and found Pedros site for off road experience I had an awesome day
I found it a bit hard as I’ve not been on a bike for about 5 years but it’s given me the buzz to get back into enduro I’m looking for a bike now

Pedro was a great and patient instructor making sure I was ok at all times and a great rider with lots of tips and knew the terrain like the back of his hand

I totally enjoyed my experience and would of had another day if I had stayed longer
I would of loved to have rode the motocross track on a mx bike

If you love bikes I Can recommend this as an awesome experience and you will be wanting more
Pedro you’re a star bro

This was a really really cool experience! João Soares is a very good rider and always ready to teach the one who are experiencing Enduro or Mx for the first time. The Hondas are also amazing. I can recommend this to anyone who’s into adventure.. A truly food way to see Madeira Island from its best perspective.

Excellente journée passée avec notre guide Joao, super mec, à l’écoute, parcours d’une beauté à couper le souffle, des 450 presque neuves… de bons conseils, de beaux souvenirs… merci à toi. Nous reviendrons, plus longtemps !! A bientôt amigo ! 😉😉

João nous a très bien accueilli, et à la première vue des motos, nous savions que la journée allait être mémorable (450 CRF-R, avec très peu d’heures au compteur). Après avoir fait les premières presentations, un rapide briefing, et s’être équipé, nous voilà parti.
Comme d’habitude sur cette île, les paysages sont magnifiques et variés. Le terrain de jeu est formidable et João en connaît les moindres recoins. On peut appeler ça du vrai Enduro, d’énormes montées, des marches, de la vitesse, de la technique… nous avons tout fait.
Pour finir cette journée, dernier stop pour le «Poncha » (alcool local).

Merci João, je recommande à tout les passionnés de moto, de passage à Madère d’essayer cette expérience inoubliable.

Quoi de mieux que de prendre le guidon d’un 450 CRF avec de magnifiques paysages que la nature peu nous offrir avec cette magnifique île de madère. Étant débutant dans l’enduro Joao guide très sympa et expérimenté dans le domaine a su évaluer notre niveau afin de nous emmener dans des endroits adaptés avant de s’arrêter sur un terrain de motocross puis de repartir et s’arrêter à nouveau boire un verre de cidre local que Joao nous a gentiment offert. En bref une après-midi géniale, amateur d’enduro je recommande, merci Joao 😉

Had an amazing day with Joao. He’s a top guy with years of experience, wealth of local knowledge and is a great instructor. I have ridden most of my life as well, even so, experienced things I’d never came across. Madeira is such a unique and amazing location for such an experience, and with top spec brand new bikes, full kit supplied (handy when you’re on holiday and don’t have your own with you) a seriously experienced tutor/guide, i learned a lot and took a lot away from the whole experience. If you’re into bikes, honestly this is a must. Cracking mix of off road trails, on road, moto x.
All you need is your license. Mountain Gadget deal with pick up, kit, bikes, guide, and drop off.
On a real positive as well, Joao really takes the time to chat about and consider your riding experience which will undoubtedly influence your days experience. My day met every expectation and more. Well worth the effort to get booked on, and the money. 5 star all day long.

Thanks Joao, awesome day man!!! See you soon when I’m back over.

Been riding my 125cc on the road for a year but never had any off road experience, nor ridden a dirt bike. J and his team were super supportive and showed me the ropes… It was fantastic day out. I’ll be back for more next year!

The trails on Madeira are so diverse, from rocky climbs to flowy forest roads. Hands down the most fun I’ve had on a dirtbike.
