What people are saying about Secret



Filipe is wonderful!!!



Our tour guide was brilliant. Very amusing! and the walk was truly beautiful



We did the 3-peak hike to Pico Ruivo. Filipe was a wonderful guide. Friendly, knowledgeable and with deep passion and respect for the island and its wildlife, which was very touching. We learnt quite a bit about the fauna and flora and we got to feel really connected to the nature around us. The hike was challenging at times, lots of steep steps, although the majority of the path is paved, so very easy to navigate. Filipe was considerate of people's different abilities and there was an option to go on an easier walk if preferred. We were rewarded with such dramatic views. We were quite lucky with the weather too! We really enjoyed our day and it was a lovely introduction to the fauna and flora of the island. Thanks Filipe!



Just a superb half-day, from start to finish. All the arrangements and timings were spot on. Our guide Felipe was outstanding and very knowledegable; something we found extremely helpful as first time visitors to Madeira. Even on the journey out to the Levada, we learned so much from him about the history of Madeira and local landmarks. We would definitely take another walk or a tour, when we return, although we may not be as lucky to get Felipe again as our guide the next time around.
