Our Guide was excellent. Collected us from our Hotel on time and explained the beautiful scenery as we travelled across the Island to the walk starting place. We had come prepared with good walking boots and as with all Levada walks, very much needed. This Levada does have tunnels and a guide is much needed. He was very patience with us, particularly negotiating the Tunnels. Thank you for making our day very special for us. Highly recommended.
