I knew few things about levada... I didn't want to read before, wanted to just to see what I feel...
I was impressed by the lush vegetation, by all the work that has been done to build the levada.
A big thank you to our guide, she explain a lot about climate, plants, island, levada, levaderos and gave us enough time to enjoy our walk. Even there is a long walk (12km) I really didn't feel that I walk so long.
When arrived to Caldeirao Verde I didn't want to leave...It is amazing!

Great walk with lovely views! The waterfall was breathtakingly beautiful. Our guide Samuel certainly knew his way around the route and gave us a lot of info about the surroundings. Would book again with Madeira Adventure Kingdom!

The walk in total lasted approximately 4.5 hours with hotel pickups and the drive to Santana taking the rest of the day. There is a 15 minute coffee/toilet stop in Santana on the way out and a further 15 minute stop on the return. Both stops are useful since there is nowhere to use the loo on the walk since the route is quite busy and the levada path narrow. The duration is approximately 13km but the route is very flat with a few short steps and stream crossings. Anyone with a modicum of fitness should manage this although some balance is needed along the narrow levada ledges. There are four tunnels but the tour guide provided us the head torches. At Caldeirao Verde there is a 15 minute break for lunch so bring a packed lunch or you’ll go hungry. The path was muddy and wet in places during the rainy season and water cascades off the hills so a raincoat is recommended. The majority of the walk is shaded so it can be cool in places. The driver and guide were friendly and informative and the guide distributed copies of her photographs to those who wanted them.

Lisandre met us at the cable car terminal in Funchal where we boarded the 9 seater minibus which was to take us and the other 5 walkers to the start of our Levada walk to Calderao Verde. Lisandre explained very clearly and in fluent English the itinerary for the day. We learnt a tremedous amount about life in Madeira, about the levadas and about the plants of the subtropical laurel forest. Lisandre looked after us extremely well, providing torches for the tunnel and a lot of useful safety advice. He was cheerful, funny and enthusiastic. I would highly recommend this guided levada walk.

Brilliant but quite tough. About 9miles. Jenny our guide was excellent. Gave us plenty of information, kept the group moving at a steady pace and kept us safe. Will definitely do another walk when I come again.

We booked with MB Travel at our hotel near the Lido. All straightforward and were picked up from our hotel on time. We then had to drive 1 hour to the very east of the island to pick up our guide and then further to pick up 2 more passengers. So 10 walkers in all. In all it took 2 hours sat in a mini bus to reach the start of our walk. All our fellow walkers were German so the guide spoke in both languages although quickly got bored with this and we had very little English interaction. The walk itself is brilliant.
On the return we again spent far to long dropping off passengers and were the last to be dropped off. I believe this amount of time is unacceptable. Also MB seem to be more expensive than other tour operators as we saw lots of cheaper options or you could just take a taxi to the start which is clearly marked and do the walk yourself. It is very straightforward with lots of other people on the trail. You cannot get lost and you won’t waste hours of your day sat in a minibus.

Lovely day spent walking the levada from Queimadas to the Caldeirao Verde. Well worth going for the views but mind where you tread... the levada walls are treacherously narrow in parts and its a long drop. Take along a packed lunch with you! Walk could be improved by ending it in a different location rather than walking the same route back - the levada trail meets up with a footpath heading off to a village at one point. Maybe the minibus pickup could be there?

Loved the hike.The guide Lily was very informative and the whole trip was well organised.It rained throughout but for me that added to the atmosphere of walking close to the dense vegetation that was reminiscent of Jurassic Park.

We were lucky with the weather to see the views, (because we thought to see only fog) and the guide was really nice and she taught us a lot about Madeira’s nature. Thank you for this wonderful day !
