- What an amazing island and leader. We saw places we would never have found independently. As a lone traveller I liked that we all ate together and our excellent guide dealt with the bookings. The food was a bargain and delicious.We ate in a variety of restaurants from casual to posh.
Not too much travelling each day.
Filipe (the guide) found lots of varied walks. We followed the levadas from source to coast and on the last day he succeeded in getting us all to the top of the highest mountain in Maderia along a spectacular path. We loved it!
There was always an opportunity for treats; whether that be cakes or swimming in rock pools. The plantlife, especially the Agapanthus was one of my highlights.
Many thanks to Filipe for a great holiday
Could't score max for trip as choice of flights from Manchester was very limited. I didn't think a flight that landed at 1.00am on the day of first walk was acceptable or reasonable so went day before with extra costs.
