Guide knowledgeable and helpful
Nice walk along the levada and into village. Guide knowledgeable on plants and trees. Pick up time - difficult to know when transport will arrive for pick up, was told 8-40, but pick up was much later. It would be nice to know the approximate length of the time for the day, including pick up to drop off. Time given only relates to the walk. Overall pleased with the organization and would use again.
