Levada do Rei

''We spent a fantastic day on levada 25 do Rei with the best guide Luis Gonçalves. Picked up from our hotel in the early morning so we could be the first ones on levada. On the way he showed us as many interesting things as possible. Stopped in different places. On the levada we were surprised with the picnic organised by our wonderful guide. Coming back we took another road.so we could see even more :)
All the time was - No rush, no stress, just relax.
After that day we have one more reason to love Madeira. And we are coming back. For sure :)''

Levada do Caldeirão Verde

''Such a beautiful and breathtaking tour. My guide was so passionate and helpful, offering lots of information and insight. He drove me to lots of viewpoints and through scenic routes on our way to and from the tour. (Hotel pick up was much appreciated, as most of the levada tours had pick ups only from Funchal, and I was staying on the other side of Madeira)
I'm so glad it wasn't a big tour group, as it added to the experience of just being out in nature, experiencing the vast expanse and clearing your mind. Thank you for a wonderful day!!''
