We wish to record our thanks to Lido Tours and to Jose our guide on 9th
May on the Nuns Valley Tour.
Jose was an excellent courteous driver and knowledgeable guide, a most
interesting trip. We will certainly recommend Lido Tours.

Super les visites, le chauffeur super sympa et toujours de bonne humeur. Nous avons essayé le fourgon et en jeep et les journées resteront gravés dans nos têtes. Malgré les moments de mauvais temps, le chauffeur toujours une solution avec d'autres points à visiter. Je recommande sans hésiter.
We went on east west and northern wonders tours whilst in Maderia, we would thoroughly recommend these tours. We had two different tour guides Alberto and Gama they were both very friendly and knowledgeable of the area.Special thanks to Gama who as well as being very passionate about the area gave good knowledge and added humor which made 2 very good tours. Thanks again to both of them we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
The levada walk to Rabaçal was brilliant,,the 25 fountains outstanding,the young lady guide ,absolutely fantastic,she needs a promotion ?❤️. I will return next year and do another trip with lido tours ,thanks
The West Tour was great! Good guide, good pace, beautiful sights. I can't imagine trying to drive the route myself, and our coach driver did an excellent job. This was well worth the price.
Ein ganz toller Ausflug. Der Bus war pünktlich am Schiff. Ein ganz Kompetenter Reiseführer, der uns alles sehr gut erzählt hat. Höhe Punkt war Restaurant zu der uns gebracht hat. Super Essen, hervorragender Wein für wirklich zugänglichen Preis. Alle 17 Teilnehmer des Ausfluges waren am begeistert. Empfehle mit ruhigem Gewissen Lido-Tours weiter.

Me and my husband booked 3 trips from Lido: Rabacal walking, The best from east Madeira and Nuns Valley. All trips were wonderful !!!
My wife and I took 4 of the Lido Levada walks during our recent vacation in Madeira. The sizes of the groups ranged from 7 to 12; the small size of the groups was the major reason why we chose to use Lido rather than one of the other tour companies. The guides were knowledgeable and the vans used to transport us from our hotel to the walk and back were comfortable. We also chose Lido for a tour of the Nun's Valley; again, the group size was small (6), so it made for a very comfortable tour. We would certainly recommend Lido tours and will no doubt use them again when we come back to Madeira, which we hope to do next year.
With reference to the particulars of the Levada walks, 3 of the tours were half day (Paradise Valley, Referta/Castelejo and Maracos/Mimosa Valley). These were all very easy with no concerns for vertigo. Referta/Castelejo and Maracos/Mimosa Valley walks are at a fairly low elevation (between 200 and 300 m above sea level) and are very interesting in terms of seeing farming done right below the levada. The fourth walk we did was an all-day walk, Ribeiro Frio to Portela. This walk is at am much higher altitude (around 800m to 900 m above sea level) and goes right through very scenic forests in the mountains. The scenic views are great but anyone with a fear of heights might want to give this one a miss. On the positive side, the posts and cables which protect walkers in the most precipitous areas have all been redone in the past two years and provide a high level of assurance when walking on those stretches. All-on-all, levada walks are a really great way to see the island of Madeira.
During our stay in Madeira in the first week of March, we did four trips with Lido tours - Nun's valley, a walk in Paradise Valley, Sunday Market, and the West tour. All four were absolutely great - well organised, in small groups, with very knowledgeable and attentive guides. We had always the feeling that we are very well looked after. I am very glad we chose Lido tours and will definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to get the most from his/her visit to Madeira.
