Great day 20 December 2019

Viktor the guide went the extra mile to make this a great day. The weather was not great but that did not detract from the day or the effort he put into this activity. Good communication from point of booking and picked up and dropped off from hotel to which was extra bonus. Would def' use this company again.

Great walk/Fantastic guide
Aug 2019
This was a really well-organised activity. We were picked up on time and as promised it was a small group. We were then driven to a small bakery for refreshments and to stock up on supplies (this company will not try to rip you off!) We then travelled on to where we would start the walk. Lisa was our guide and both she and the driver were friendly and relaxed with everyone.
It was really lovely walking along the levadas up high. We had some amazing views and it wasn’t very busy - our route avoided the most popular trails. As we went, Lisa told us lots of interesting facts about the island and the levadas, and was really knowledgeable about the local flora. We then walked down to explore some waterfalls, which were really impressive, and had a relaxing lunch break. There was an opportunity to go for a quick dip!
Afterwards we walked up another scenic trail, and visited a great cafe for refreshments. Following this, the rest of the walk was largely along the levadas (including a long tunnel) and finally back to meet our driver. This was a great trip - especially if you are new to walking on the island. This walk wasn’t difficult, but care had to be taken as there were lots of trip hazards. You would just need to be reasonably fit. I would definitely recommend ‘Hit the Road.’

Fantastic guides, small groups & lots of fun!
Jun 2019 • Solo
I was slightly skeptical about joining a guided tour group before coming to Madeira, but am so pleased I found Hit the Road Madeira. I had two amazing walking tours guided by Jeff and Lisa, which were full of fun, interesting information and exercise!

The groups were small, with like minded people who are now my friends. My preconceptions of guided tours were well and truly smashed by these guys. I realise, hiking's more fun with good company!
