Fabulous experience! Alexander S.

The beekeeping experience tour was fantastic. Our hosts, were so welcoming and an eager to share their extensive knowledge about the buzzing world of bees. The tour began with an informative session where Marcia and Elder introduced us to the different species of bees. They delved into the intricacies of the hive, explaining the three types of bees: the worker, the drone, and the all-important queen. Their passion was evident as they spoke about the products of the hive—pollen, nectar, honey, royal jelly, and propolis. Safety was a top priority, and we were provided with bee suits that made us feel completely secure as we approached the hives. Dressed in our protective gear, we were given the thrilling opportunity to hold the frames from the hive. The search for the queen bee was like a treasure hunt, with the added excitement of being surrounded by the gentle hum of the busy workers. The hands-on experience was enhanced by Márcia's photography, creating lasting memories of our close encounters with the hives. After our adventure among the hives, we returned to Marcia and Elder’s home, where they hosted a generous and delicious lunch. The meal felt like a celebration of the day’s discoveries and the newfound appreciation we all had for the world of beekeeping. In summary, this beekeeping experience tour was educational, safe, and incredibly enjoyable. Márcia and Elder’s expertise and hospitality made it an unforgettable journey into the life of bees. Highly recommended for anyone curious about these remarkable insects and the art of beekeeping.

What an incredible! Kristin P.

What an incredible, one of a kind experience! Márcia and her husband are so warm, accommodating, and inclusive. We had a wonderful time learning about bees and what they do as beekeepers. Interacting with the hives was amazing. They served a delicious spread of food and drinks and we chatted and got to know them and the other people on the tour. I felt very welcome. They also took great photos and videos of our experience. A must-see in Madeira!
