Full itinerary. Delicious traditional lunch at local restaurant. Cristo de Rei made a great alternative (as wicker baskets were closed)- stunning location worth the steps. Also visited Porto de Cruz Sugar Cane brandy factory for tasting - delicious. It was fun to see the traditional houses in Santana (brief but sufficient visit), mnost of which have been converted into tourist shops. Then went for a walk in UNESCO laurel forest and along the Balcoes levada. Cherry on the cake visited Pico de Aerio. Would not hestitate to recomment this trip. Excellent tour group - Ilhala
I went on this tour with a guide called Marco. He was very knowledgeable and gave us really nice information the whole day. We ate lunch at a restaurant he recommended and it was one of my favourite meals so far. We saw many view points and had plenty of time to visit the different stops. Along the way he pointed out interesting things like different fruits, plants, levada walk entrances, hiking paths… very nice experience!
Really enjoyed the tour. Went to one of the mountains and had fantastic views then had an off road journey that was very fun. Next was a drink in an authentic cafe and finally more fantastic views of the island. Our guide was excellent and highly recommended. He made the experience really special.
Lucy was a fun, knowledgeable and very competent guide. By the 3nd of the tour we felt we were parting as friends more than clients. Would most definitely use her again. Thank you Lucy for a fantastic day.
It was really amazing trip with Tony and the group. The mountains and the views was incredible! And tasty lunch! Worth the money!
