review 29 Oct 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Following the narrow steep stone paths over the highest mountains. We really were up in the clouds.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for some steep narrow paths with vertical drops to the side. There is a lot of time in the afternoons to relax or explore further by yourselves.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Hopefully we gave people jobs, certainly supported local bars!! I hope some of our money went to helping repair and maitain the levada walks and mountain passes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It is the first time we have been on a walking holiday and certainly would go again and recommend to others. Especially single travellers as travelling with a group always gives opportunity to meet others.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The volcanic geology flora and fauna. Stunning scenery.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

We walked in April. We experienced strong winds and wet conditions in the north. But enjoyed every minute. Recommend the dolphin and whale watching on the free day.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The trip minimised transport requirements and used buses and local taxi / transportation and facilities such as restaurans and bars where available in lieu of the hotels.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very enjoyable. Some strenuous sections but the levadas are largely gentle slopes following the contours.
