Tour Reviews

Gabor Oravecz

Trekking in Madeira

Fantastic trekking Holiday with excellent service, great varieties of scenery from levadas and amazing coastal walks to high mountain trekking. Overall highly recommended. Some hikes were a bit longer in distance or with more ascending/descending as opposed to the itinery but could be accomplished according to the planned time. We asked for an additional 2 days of hike which was flexibly added to the standard package, much appreciated!
Taxi service was fully reliable and very flexible, providing the opportunity to talk with the locals on the way to our next destination.
Accomodations were simple but all at excellent location, value for money.
The island is a must see and experience for all hikers!

Naxos & the Cycladic islands

This was a wonderful experience. Such a beautiful country and lovely people. The organisation was excellent and we felt very well looked after. We loved the accommodation in two places (central, atmospheric, delightful owners and comfortable). One other place was very run down, although still very atmospheric. The walks were great, and passed through many smaller lovely towns. Some of the walks were well marked, one in particular was impossible to find (several others doing the same walk independently found the same problem). This walk was also overgrown with thistles, but hopefully this is now being addressed after our feedback.
We come from Australia, so we wouldn’t rave about the beaches, although we had a few lovely swims, preferably off the rocks (where we were able to).
But all in all the scenery was gorgeous, the people lovely, and we had an amazing time.
Thanks Wild Rover and Christina for your help with this trip.
