This was the highlight of our holiday, pickup 8.45am, very knowledgeable and friendly driver/ tour guide, Filipe - who obviously loves his job and takes pride in ensuring you have an amazing and unforgettable experience. The scenery was breathtaking, the 'Levada' walk was easy and lasted about 30 minutes, the views from the 'Balcoes' were stunning, something we will never forget. Lunch was at a trout farm, which was yet another idyllic place, I had the meat - so there is a choice - but the trout looked equally appetizing, all served with bread, salad and potatoes. Back at our hotel just after 6pm. The whole day was an experience that will remain with us forever - don't forget your camera. We highly recommend this tour and we will be back for more.
