A wonderful easy hike with beautiful views of the bays and the sea again and again. Our guide taught us a lot about the irrigation system, the flora, fruits and vegetables. In addition, he always showed consideration for the slower among us when it came to pacing. I can only recommend! A small drawback: the minibuses used in Madeira are only intended for small and narrow people. You really have very little space there.

Sehr guter Guide, der der kleinen Gruppe auf deutsch, englisch und französisch Natur, Land und Leute nahe brachte. Eine wunderschöne, abwechslungsreiche, einfach zu begehende Strecke mit wundervollen Motiven, weshalb man sich etwas mehr Zeit zum Fotografieren gewünscht hätte. So wurden die 12 Kilometer mit einer 20 minütigen Pause innerhalb von knapp 4 Stunden abgewandert. Absolut zu empfehlen.
