We did the referta walk. It is a nice walk. In my personal experience I felt the walk was longer than 2/3 hours. This walk is qualified as an ''easy walk''. But do not underestimate this trip. Altough I have an averige physical condition I needed to constantly focus myself on my steps. Some places the walk could be dangerous, and there are not handrails everywhere. Sometimes the handrails are not reliable.
In case you have an altitude fear or vertigo I would not recommend any of the Levada walks.

Our guide was Alvaro. He has got a lot of knowledge of the environment and the whole Island. We got a lot of interesting information from him, recent and also historical. Alvaro is definately the most funny guide I have ever met. We have laughed a lot. We will come back to Madeira and book more walks with Madeira Free Spirit walks.

My husband and I had an amazing time doing the Levada da Castelejo walk. The walk is easy, and we walked for about 3 hours. The views are stunning and so is the nature on the way. Our guide Alvaro was very knowledgeable and fun and he pointed out various exotic fruits and herbs in their natural environment. He also shared with us a lot of information about levadas and about the local agriculture. We enjoyed our walk with Alvaro and would love to do another Levada walk again. Thank you Alvaro for a great day, all the best, Diana & Mark

A beautiful levada walk made most enjoyable with the capable Guide, where safety is his prime concerrm. We are in our seventies and found the 5K easy. There were no huge drops but care was needed in a few places. Alvaro was there to help,and guide you. His general and local knowledge about history, local culture and people, as well as vegetation and wildlife was so interesting and his humour most entertaining. Regulating stopping to relay this information and show you things. A thoroughly enjoyable morning.

Stunning vistas, verdant vegetation and a well organised day's levada walking with excellent guide and driver.
As this was our first time walking the levadas in Madeira we'd been advised by others to go in an organised party.
