Our hike was led by Jorge from Madeira Mountain Tours. He was the perfect guide and even trained as a mountain guide. We were picked up at the hotel on time. The hike was very impressive, an absolute highlight on Madeira. Jorge told us a lot about Madeira and the geography and geology. An absolute recommendation for this tour!
