About
About 4 hours and 30 minutes, starting at Paúl da Serra, going down to the Rabaçal valley for the first levada, which takes us to the first waterfall, the Risco waterfall. We descend to find the second levada of the 25 fountains thus providing wonderful and unique views of the Rabaçal valley, finding endemic species of fauna and flora along the way to reach the 25 fountains lagoon. On the way back we passed a tunnel of about 800 meters

This is a fabulous walk and it was great to do it in a small group. Susanna and George had planned for us to get to the start point earlier than most of the group's so we could experience the beauty of the area without too many crowds. Susanna was full of energy and fascinating info about the flora and history of the area.

Absolutely great company and it was referred to me by a local - excellent value and service picked 6 of us up as a small total group of 15 and dropped us off and our Guide was kind funny and super informative (Alvaro Freitas was amazing informative hilarious and happy!! ). We have done tours all over the world this company was excellent - we will be using them again and I highly recommend them. This was small and concierge service based company compared to the large tour bus groups we’ve done in past. Was wonderful 5stars !!

Very busy and so so place. If you would like to enjoy properly try to go as early as possible. Otherwise you will met hundreds of people there and on the way.

When we finally hiked to destination if was so many people that you couldn't fine where to sit for lunch. On top of that our guide I believe Emanuel was kind of rude. He told as if we can't keep up he is not waiting for us and we can take a taxi to come back. Also he looked like he was always late for something and had very fast pace. For me was kind of ok but I heard some people complained about that.

What an excellent day we had yesterday! This walk is gorgeous! Biggest shoutout to our guide Suzana!! She is punctual and professional as well as super knowledgeable about flora and fauna- and she is funny!! We couldn’t have asked for a better guide!
The walk has some challenging parts, but we were completely fine with sneakers (they did get wet and dirty though, so don’t wear your newest pair) and without walking sticks or shoes. Nature is just beautiful along the way. We absolutely loved it!

My 2nd walk with this tour group & I would definitely recommend. From pick up to return, this company are professional & well organised. And very importantly the actual walk was enjoyable, safe and fun. Our guide & Driver, Alvaro, was very competent, informative & engaging . As a solo traveller this is a great way to see these wonderful Madeira walks.
I have to admit , on a personal level, I was a bit underwhelmed by the waterfalls as think my expectations were very high! However it was on my to do list , the walk was very enjoyable & the flowers, birds etc were great to see. Also a very busy walkway, so all the more important to have a knowledgable Guide leading..

This was a brilliant day out from start to finish. Friends who had been on the walk with Madeira Free Spirit Walks had recommended them to us and they were not wrong! We were the first pick up in Funchal; we were 10 minutes early and our tour guide was waiting for us already! We made approximately 5 more pick ups so there were 15 on the tour, a perfect number. Some other tours we saw had far too many people, so they didn’t get the personal experience that we did. Our guide Alvero was absolutely fantastic. Very funny, very informative and an all round great guy! The walk itself was interesting, plenty of steps up and down so beware if you have any knee or hip problems. Alvero made sure everyone enjoyed themselves and ensured we were all kept together. Our whole experience of Madeira Free Spirit Walks was first class, from booking to when we were finally dropped off back at the hotel. We would highly recommend them.

Our guide Alvaro was very informative and showed us many plants and birds. He was also very entertaining and humorous. The route was organized nicely, we went first down to Rabacal valley to see the Risco waterfall, after that get to walk the levada of 25 fontes. We did not have to climb back to the starting point since the exit was through a tunnel. Jackets and torches were provided to those who did not have their own.

We were collected from our hotels in a comfortable minibus. The drive to the walk was informative and interesting. Our guide, Alvaro was outstanding - knowledgeable, interesting and with a great sense of humour. The walking was largely straightforward, and Alvaro was on hand at the more challenging points. Thoroughly recommended - thank you Madeira Free Spirit and Alvaro.
