Great day out, and although it rained it didn't disappoint. Our driver Luis was easy to talk to, and your at ease straight away. As all the drivers working for True Spirt seem to be. We drove to a coffee shop where Luis explained exactly what was planned. Then we had another short drive before parking and started walking. Some of the steps took it's toll on my knees, definitely got the heat into them. For some reason the steps we came down were harder going up....... We ordered food before the walk, and Luis stopped at a lovely restaurant. If anyone orders the steak on a hot stone you'll not be disappointed. I didn't know about the restaurant part , but the meal was well worth the money.

The 25 Fontes and Levada walk was a great experience. Duarte was knowledgeable as to the human and natural history, and adjusted the route as we encountered road obstacles. Having a small 4x4 allowed us to go where the mega-tours could not. We started the walk at the tunnel, away from the crowds. There were crowds on the trail and at the Fontes. My advice to to avoid the peak season. This is not a easy walk. There is a long flight of stairs. The trail is uneven and in places had standing water. Wear waterproof shoes or boots. A headlight would be useful for the 800 meter tunnel. My wife and I rode in the jump seats of the Land Rover along with 2 other adults. It was not comfortable. For large individuals, it would be impossible. If you are prone to car sickness, forget it. Hope you get a regular seat. The restaurant lunch stop was overwhelmed. Duarte acted as a waiter as well as a tour guide because the wait staff could not handle it all. The food was average.

We loved the Tour and our Tourguide Ruben was amazing. We learned a lot about Madeira and the forest. We definitely would go on another tour with him again, but we have no time as we are only here for a few days. I wouldn't go to the 25 fontes again becauses it's really crowded. Still beautiful but it's up to you if you want to go there.
