We did this walk in late October in persistent rain, gusty winds and with low cloud blotting out the views but still had a great day out. A local pick up point for the minibus, then an interesting ride into the interior of the island,...More

We booked the tour through our hotel and the walk was a nice easy stroll. The thing that made it was the guide Alvaro. He was very amusing & great at pointing out different plants & birds etc.

This was a wonderful experience. We had a great tour guide, Suzanna. She made the experience an excellent one. She gave us up to date and interesting information with good humour in between. This walk took a few hours and is a rather easy walk...More

I went hiking twice with these guys and both times it was great! The guides are very attentive, provide interesting information in a funny way and obviously like what they do. Everything is very well organised and fully worth the price.

Walked with the experienced guides from Madeira Explorers, we would have missed so much beauty if it wasn't for their experience, you should really do the walks with guides

We chose an easy half day first one in the paradise valley. Our guid was excellent with just the right blend of humour and informative detail. Lovely scenery and greeting to know how levadas work. Will plan for a bigger one next time

I’ve never been pregnant so take that into consideration! I did two walks, a levada one and the tough walk over the mountains in the centre of the island. I would think that the levada walks would be no problem if you’re... More

I believe that they will pick you up at your hotel (looks like it is in Funchal). We paid 28 Euro per person for a full guided day tour, all included. depending on which Levada you want to walk, it can either be a full... More
