A little more expensive than other tours, but it was worth it. Pick up at the hotel in a 4x4, go up to a bar to have a quick coffee and continue until the start of the levada. A pleasant walk with no difficulties (just some very steep stairs half way back). The tour leaves relatively early because many tourists accumulate on the same route and at the destination. Tour by jeep through a eucalyptus forest to a rural restaurant, in the middle of the mountains. Good food, very large portions at very reasonable prices. After lunch to the skywalk to appreciate the height of the island and back to the hotel.

My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour on Tuesday 7th June which enabled us to soak in many of the natural wonders of Madeira in the space of a day. We originally were due to do the Rabacal 25 Fountains Levada Walk but due to safety problems on the hike, this was then changed to the Porto Moniz Pools and Skywalk Tour. However, having hiked Pico Ruivo and the Verada da Encumeada the previous day, a swim in the Porto Moniz pools was the perfect remedy for the sore limbs and sun-kissed skin picked up from our hike. Our designated guide and driver, Diogo, was incredibly knowledgeable in his description of the history, geography and culture of Madeira. It was clear in his stories how proud and passionate he is of his home and we were lucky beneficiaries of his knowledge as well as his personal recommendations for the best places to eat/drink/visit on the island.

The guide/driver was genuinely very funny. Honestly I just found it incredibly impressive the sheer effort he put in. He talked to every couple as we joined the jeep to build rapport and was constantly cracking jokes, some good banter and some flat, but I really enjoyed it! He kept us upbeat but the main thing that came across was his extreme depth of knowledge of fauna, Madeira and customer service. It was incredibly informative and probably the most professional tour I’ve ever had. The walk + lunch + off-road + skywalk offered great balance & the shortcut on 25 fontes was a life saver, on the way back that became clear. This was likely the best value for money experience in Madeira we had!
