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
