What To Expect

Levada do Alecrim
This is a walk unlike any other. Many of our guests tell us it is the walk they have enjoyed the most. Deep in the valley of the western plateau, you will be marvelled at the rock pools, which have been carved over millions of years by the water as it runs towards the sea, forming magnificent waterfalls and cascades.

Schöne Wanderung
Akorves, 23-04-2022
Schöne Levada Wanderung, einige Abschnitte mit Stufen. Nicht so viele Wanderer wie auf der 25 Quellen Rabacal Tour. Sara, unser Tourguide, war super nett, hat viel über Pflanzen und Tiere erzählt. Nelio, unser Fahrer, ist sehr sicher und aufmerksam auf der ganzen Tour gefahren. Gerne geh ich mit den beiden wieder auf Tour.
Amazing landscape with breathtaking views

My wife and I did 4 tours with Lido tours, we had the same driver who was very responsible and experienced, we felt very safe with him . Our guide Sara was very knowledgeable, fun and kind with all the group, safety was her priority and we appreciate it.-thanks Sara-. The Van is for max 16 people which is good .The views were scenic and we learnt a lot of the fauna and flora in Madeira.
Hands down one of our best trips!
We will come back and do the rest of the tours soon.
Lovely ‘No Lakes in Madeira’ Lakes Walk

Lovely walk with our guide Sara & a great group of fellow walkers. The weather was wet at times which was a shame but not unexpected - it’s why Madeira is so beautiful after all. There are no lakes in Madeira despite the name of this walk but lots of stunning waterfalls & pools. The views were stunning and as befits a ‘moderate’ level walk there were some challenging sections - notably some steep & slippery descents. We all made it with ‘remember baby steps’ advice echoing from Sara!! Finished with a welcome beer/coffee/poncha stop with new found friends. Great day

A very wet and cloudy day and as a result at the start of our walk our guide - Sarah - did give us a group of 7 the option to cancel.

However the unanimous view was to go ahead and despite the weather, which restricted the views which we were told were stunning!, Sarah did her best to make it an enjoyable walk.

Would like to do this again in dry weather with good visibility as in hindsight though we may have been better to have opted for the alternative walk our Sarah offered us!
