        Great hike in the ancient laurel forest
        I highly recommend this walking tour with Madeira trail tours. It’s off the beaten path, very beautiful and secluded. Dinarte is a great guide.

        Great views and great guide!!!
        Dino was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable, he made me feel at ease despite initial nerves before and during the hike and I really appreciated his help and encouragement. The hike was very rewarding and I would recommend it to anyone and especially to walk with a local like Dino. Thank you for the experience Dino. I won’t forget it :)

        Great guide. Great scenery. Great hike!
        Dino was absolutely great. Communication was very easy. He picked us up outside the cruise terminal and was very friendly and communicative. My wife and I were interested in some serious hiking. Apparently most tours take people almost to the top of the mountains and start from there and then walk down. we started at the bottom and hiked through the tunnel and then gradually up the mountains. This was exactly what we were looking for as we wanted to see the sites and get some exercise. We did a little over 7 miles and almost 700 “steps”. we learned a lot about the island and the construction of the Levadas. We had a great lunch at a café. Saw some beautiful scenery and waterfalls. Dino is in incredible shape and has run four 100 mile races! He leads running tours as well. So for him, this was a walk in the park. we’re both in our 70s so it was a bit more strenuous for us but certainly doable and enjoyable. He couldn’t have been more helpful. I would strongly recommend him.

        Best day of our holiday
        We were looking for a more challenging walk than offered by the other operators and this company provided this by allowing us to do the Red Coast run as a private walk. Dinarte was an excellent and enthusiastic guide - judging the pace that we wished to walk at accurately. The walk was varied with spectacular views of both the north and south coasts. During the day he provided a lot of local and useful information. When we next visit the island, we will definitely do more day trips with him - with the added bonus that his maximum group size is 6, considerably smaller than other tour operators.

        Fantastic guide, beautiful walking tour! Highly recommended!
        I booked the Fanal forest and Levada dos Cedros tour with Dino, but because the weather was so great he suggested focussing on the Final forest -- and I am so glad we did! It was absolutely breathtaking to first walk through open fields with brilliant sunshine and then through the mist surrounded by the magical laurel trees and peaceful cows. Dino is super friendly, super professional and extremely knowledgeable about the island and its history. Highly recommend this tour!

        A must do experience.
        Dino is so knowledgeable of Levada do Rei. It makes an amazing hike even more enjoyable. The majority of the hike is a slight grade with narrow sections. I can’t recommend this enough, it was a true hi light of the trip.

        Highly recommended day out
        A wonderful day walking the levadas with Dino, a courteous, knowledgeable and friendly guide. We were a small group. The other couple were friendly and we gelled immediately. The walk is reasonably strenuous, but Dino made sure we stopped often enough to make it a pleasant experience. He explained the history of the levadas and pointed out the interesting natural and man-made features of the forest. I can’t recommend the walk too highly. Do try it: it will be one of your lasting memories of Madeira.

        This is a must do while in Madeira!
        If you are a runner or a outdoor person, no matter what the weather is, this is definitely an experience that you don't wanna miss. Booking was straight forward and hassle free. Met with guide at the apartment and went from there. The tour is amazing! I had the Sea 2 Mountain Running Tour, the landscape and views are breath taking. My guide companion Dinarte was wonderful, kind and friendly. He kept the perfect pace while explaining me a lot of about islands nature, history, and about running of course. The local knowledge that you don’t find in any guidebook. I also received absolutely fantastic photos taken by Dinarte while our tour. It was the highlight of my Madeira trip. Highly reccomend to runners on any level.

        Highly recommended
        It was absolutely amazing, I've had such an amazing time! I've walked the 25 fontes and Risco levadas on a Monday. Dino picked me up at my Airbnb in Santa Cruz and we were a international group of 6 people. I felt very well informed about the local nature and it was a pleasure to have booked this trip! In the end we've had a lunch at a cafe which was very delicious. Thanks again :)

        A must for hikers in Madeira
        Thoroughly enjoyed our time with Dino. We booked 2 hikes with him, 25 Fountains & the Lorano trail. Couldn’t rate this experience high enough, particularly the Lorano trail which remains largely untouched & felt like a hidden gem compared to other trails we had been on. Dino was not only punctual & knowledgable but on a personal level was just a lovely & friendly person who is passionate about the outdoors & what he does. If you’re looking for a more intimate hiking experience in Madeira definitely book with Dino.

        Dino was a great guide
        Great route and a very knowledgeable guide. Was great to just be able to soak in the scenery and hear about the history, local knowledge and history. Had a fab day out explored another corner of Madeira I haven’t seen

        Extremely enjoyable experience. Dino was very friendly, easy going and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our hike with him. It makes such a difference having a local pointing out endemic flora and fauna as well as giving you historical background.

        Excellent guide and superb levada walk
        Dino is a great guide - authentic, relaxed, knowledgable and passionate about nature and the environment. A real highlight of our first visit to Madeira and a strong recommendation. He takes care of the guests and always checks that everyone is comfortable with the pace. Very comfortable to spend time with and a walk I will recall with happiness for many years.

      This was truly a fantastic run and would recommend it to anyone. Dino has some great local knowledge and there is lots of craic to be had. we ran 18km but it was a comfortable run as Dino adapted to my pace and made it easy. I would hope to come back and do a few different tours in the future.
