A Recent Review of this tour

This was our fourth tour with Carlos during our 10 day trip to Madeira. This was a lovely levada walk that Carlos chose for us which we really enjoyed. He brought us early to the trail so as to avoid the crowds. On the same tour we went to Santana, and visited gorgeous viewpoints in the north. He tailored our trip throughout the day....he's very good at figuring out what we like.
