Great tour, if you want a guide who has for heart Madeira.
We always look for a smaller company, when choosing private tours operators. We feel that we are getting something that is very special to us.
Linda has lived up to our expectations 100%.
Linda does a lot of hiking and we also tried "a little" of them. Since my wife has bad legs, we asked her to organize a trip that took that into account, and we got it.
Not only do we get a fixed standard trip, but Linda took into account the weather on that day, so we got the best of the day. There was a time to stop when we thought something was of interest to us.
We took a full day tour on the southern and northern side of Madeira. We also took a half-day tour on the northern and eastern side of Madeira.
We feel we have got the best to see, but I am sure when we book a trip with Linda later that she has a lot more to show us. Unfortunately, time did not allow us to achieve more.
Linda is great at telling about Madeira, and showed us many lovely places, as well as local restaurants. We really enjoyed it.
If you want a guided tour with someone who is passionate about her job, then there is Linda.
Many thanks Linda for a wonderful trip.

We had the most amazing adventure in the most uncharacteristic Madeiran weather with Linda.
Nobody expected snow, hail, gale force winds, thunderstorms, sunshine and multiple rainbows in mid March and yet that’s what we experienced. Linda had to adapt our tour to ensure we remained both safe and had an enjoyable trip - she did both brilliantly. We didn’t see all the sights she had planned but we will never forget driving across the plateau in snow with ice flowers and broom at the roadside. We walked 7 kms along a levada in relative shelter while gale force winds and hail storms roared above us.
Linda was encyclopaedic in her knowledge of the history, culture, social conditions, geology and botany of the area. We also visited a banana plantation and saw how difficult it was to tend these plots. Some spectacular views over cliff edges and at coastal locations completed the day. We managed to avoid getting too wet both by chance and Linda’s planning. What an adventure.
Couldn’t recommend her trips highly enough.

Linda organised a full day private tour for us. Based on a preliminary discussion she arranged a tour that wasn't too strenuous for us, but still allowed us to view a hidden gem of the island that we probably wouldn't have been able to reach on our own. During the tour we were given a little botanical information, and afterwards we learned about the island's past. After some viewpoints we ended the day at an excellent restaurant. Meaningful conversations, good vibes, everlasting memories.
She can also help with car rental, accommodation and useful tips for your stay on the island. She knows Madeira very well and an exceptional guide.
+1 point for Füles the dog :)

We had a pleasure to enjoy several trips with Linda and they were all amazing. The program was perfectly organized, be it Nordic walking, levada walk, boat trip or swimming on one of the beautiful beaches of Madeira. Linda is absolutely professional, adapts to the needs, attentive, kind, reliable, expands the programs with a lot of useful and interesting information, and last but not least, she has an excellent sense of humor. We discovered many picturesque places together, which are not crowded of tourists and the tranquility is just perfect for relax. In Linda, the passion for discovery and work is perfectly combined, and thanks to these, all our trips together were a wonderful unique adventure on the beautiful island of Madeira. Thank you Linda ❤️

Linda reads her guests like a pro and designs each trip to their specific needs and comfort level. We took several trips together, equally enjoyable for the older generation as well as the young ones, including my dog. :-)
She knows the hidden spots, which you will not find in the guidebooks...so if you want to have the best Poncha, Espetada, or Lapas, just follow her and Fules!

What a fantastic evening. Really personal experience with a great skipper, very chilled, nice wine and some snacks to enjoy the spectacular views of Madeira from the sea. Would highly recommend. Thanks Paulo!

We booked a full day private levada tour with Linda. The hike was totally shaped to our needs. This is the first time we tried Nordic walking sticks. Linda suggested it. It's much safer to hike that way and we avoided the nasty lower body muscle soreness the next day. She held a 5 minute crash course "how to nordic walk", after that the tour was notably easier than without it. Linda brought her dog Füles to the hike :) Füles is a sweet fluffball. We liked her so much. She is calm, well behaved and loves to hike. During the trip, Linda shared interesting things and thoughts about the history of Madeira and the local wildlife and plants.

During our stay, Linda helped us every day to figure out what program to do and gave tips about which restaurants we should visit. We ate delicious things thanks to her :) (One of them was so good, we ate there 3 times.) She even did the weather forecast for us, so we had options where to go and what to do. It is hard to predict the weather in Madeira, but she nailed it, so we didn't have any bad experience because of the weather:) It's well worth to hire her for private tours!

Do yourself a favor and tour Madeira with Linda!
She is a personable, pleasant, superbly-knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, who will show you all the beauty and hidden treasures of this wonderful island. You will see and learn more in one day with her than you would in weeks on your own.
Very highly recommended.

We wanted to walk around Madeira in the small spaces we had with work and all, without any excessive talk about every tree along the route. In my diving centre there were flyers for Nordic Walking Madeira, which also offers normal walks.

After contacting Linda, we made personalized plans and we started. Linda is amazingly friendly and passionate about what she does and has so much knowledge about the island. Its not only about walking, she can highlight you on where the best ponchas are made or which local festivity you should see.

Next time I am on this island I immediatly know where to go ☺
