We were picked up right on time at the cruise terminal with a small bus. We were a small group of only 10 people. The guide spoke German very well and gave us a detailed explanation of the plants and animals on the approx. 3 hour hike. Questions were gladly answered by him. The hike impressively showed us a part of Madeira that was previously unknown to us. The trip was well organized and definitely worth the money. It is highly recommended.

The tour was very educational. Our guide Leonardo has shown and explained various plants in between. The pace was brisk but reasonable because the trail is good and has no challenges. Tour was bilingual, English and German. Leonardo always explained everything very well and understandably. Some guests did not have suitable footwear there, but everyone is responsible for it. it
