Best trip of the week

Excellent trip. Phillipe. Was the guide and very helpful and knowledgeable. This was quite a difficult walk with over 350 steps up at one point. But very good...our favourite trip.of the week. We would recommend this company and did this trip and 25 fountains with them. The pace was just right and made sure no one was left behind. Incredible views.
Walking above the clouds!

If you are active traveler, you can’t miss this hike to the highest peak in Madeira, Pico Ruivo. It is an amazing hike with breathtaking views along the way. I really enjoyed stunning mountain views.
It's wonderful to walk above the clouds!!! I will never forget this experience!!!
Thank you to all "Madeira Free Spirit walks" team!!!

Fillipe was such an excellent guide. Lots of fascinating information about the locations, flora and fauna. But on top of this he was able to offer encouragement and support when we found parts of the walk more challenging than we anticipated. Thank you fillipe.
Unforgettable experience!

Awesome hike from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo with Philippe from Madeira Free Spirit Tours!
I had this hike on my ‘to do’ list but very nearly bottled it as we approached the starting point in the rain and fog with poor visibility and the thought of 4000 steps to deal with along the route. After a few phone calls to other guides to check out conditions we started the hike and I am so pleased we did. Philippe was amazing, making sure everyone was safe, helping those who struggled and encouraged everyone to go at a pace comfortable to them. At no point did I feel I had to keep up, Philippe took time to tell us of the history of the route, the flora and fauna, all the while making sure everyone was comfortable, I can’t recommend him highly enough!
The route was tough in places, especially the climb to Pico Ruivo but oh so worth the feeling of achievement at the end. The decent to the pick up point was much more comfortable and less strenuous. If you get the chance then don’t hesitate to book this tour with Madeira Free Spirit Tours, you will be well looked after…enjoy!
Great experience

It was really a great experience ! A must do if you are in Madeira. It is a bit challenging hike at some points but doable. Our guide was Claudio, he was very nice and had a lot information about the island and was taking good care about the group of 15 people.
