Great day out, and although it rained it didn't disappoint. Our driver Luis was easy to talk to, and your at ease straight away. As all the drivers working for True Spirt seem to be. We drove to a coffee shop where Luis explained exactly what was planned. Then we had another short drive before parking and started walking. Some of the steps took it's toll on my knees, definitely got the heat into them. For some reason the steps we came down were harder going up....... We ordered food before the walk, and Luis stopped at a lovely restaurant. If anyone orders the steak on a hot stone you'll not be disappointed. I didn't know about the restaurant part , but the meal was well worth the money.
Only 5 in the group (maximum is 8) and really makes a difference getting to know the others so we can move at a pace that works for everyone. No drama to stop for photos, speed up on the flats, linger a little at viewpoints. It's only when we encountered the mass groups marching single file through the narrower sections that I realised how fortunate we were to be early and small enough to be flexible. This is the best way to experience levada walking
Great tour with a lovely guide. Weather was awful unfortunately so we’re going to book this tour again on a future visit when the weather will hopefully be better. Nice lunch in an interesting restaurant & great to see the traditional houses in Santana.
Though it was raining literally the entire time, this was a great experience. Bring a warm, waterproof jacket and solid hiking shoes, as there are slippery parts. A hat is also a good idea. Our guide Sarah was very kind and competent.
Great chance to see a lot of the west and north of the Island in a short space of time. Friendly and enthusiastic guide. Visited lots of places - spent about the right amount of time in each.
