Highly recommend Lido Tours for this walk and our excellent guide for the day. From Funchal we drove for 30 mins before stopping at a supermarket to use the toilet (the last chance) and to buy lunch if needed. Then after 15 mins drive we reached the walk. This route is busy and popular, but still beautiful. The walk begins high up where it is cooler so bring layers. Most of the walk is downhill or flat when doing it on this route. On the way to the fountains there is only 2 uphill climbs, around 60 steps up and then a further 100+ steps right before the fountains. On the way back there is just 57 steps down and then up again and the whole route back is flat as you go back through a tunnel and get picked up there instead. The guide was excellent at keeping a steady pace and giving lots of information about the nature and history with regular stops. As someone with a low fitness level it great and I never felt left behind. Be aware if not cutting through the tunnel its much harder!

With a choppy sea ahead the ride out to sea was like a rollercoaster ride. We were on the third row and felt all the bumps but it was great fun. Sitting at the back is better for those with a bad back though. The boat does provide a poncho if you are getting wet. Its a fantastic way to see the island and we got to watch planes landing from sea. After a while we came across a pod of pilot whales and they were beautiful. The marine biologist on board gave a huge amount of information and it was great to learn a lot about these dolphins.

We booked a second tour with True Spirit as we enjoyed the first so much. This was a half day tour with Diogo who was also friendly, informative and fun. We were lucky to have great weather the whole morning, getting to see incredible views along our journey and at the main sights. The off roading was fantastic and with great views and lots of nature and wildlife to be seen. Love how ethical this company is too, with Diogo picking up any rubbish he saw on the way

Carlos our guide was lovely and drove carefully on the very curly roads!!. Scenery brilliant. Toboggan ride great fun. Wish we didn't have masks on for the photos!!!

A truly memorable experience. We were lucky to see dolphins, pilot whales, and the icing on the cake was a group of fin whales within 50 yards of our craft.
