You don’t need a tour group. Just a bit of initiative. It is mid March and At 9:55 bus 56 at 3.35 Euro each from Funchal to Ribeiro Frio was full and left early. Sone latecomers and those catching the bus along the way had to make alternate plans as no more busses for the day. I fortunately was on the bus. RF was full of tour groups so I passed on the Balcony view point and headed straight for the well signposted PR10 route to be ahead of the pack. The route is very green under trees with views across the valley. Bumpy under foot with stones and roots on sometimes narrow path. Sone Alarming points for those with children or a fear of heights. “Tunnels” pah! Just gaps in the rocks. Generally flat with downhill for the last 2k. Easy to follow. Half way are some signs just after a gappy/tunnel - stick to the lavada. Down the forestry track and turn right back onto the lavada Towards the end the lavada splits -go down hill on steps to Portella. Busses 13:30 (53) 14:50 (20) or 16:05 (53) are the options or one of the hovering taxis. We casually took 3.5 hours and had time for a rest before the 14:55. Bus goes to machio where you change immediately for Funchal 4 Euro each. Settle back for a long ride.
