Fabulous!

Our self guided walking holiday in Madeira was fantastic in every way but it was thanks to Inn Travel's attention to detail that enabled us to relax and enjoy the beautiful walks knowing the organisation was sound. The walks were varied with options available on most days giving us a good insight into the culture of this beautiful and friendly island.

Our self guided walking holiday in Madeira was fantastic in every way but it was thanks to Inn Travel's attention to detail that enabled us to relax and enjoy the beautiful walks knowing the organisation was sound. The walks were varied with options available on most days giving us a good insight into the culture of this beautiful and friendly island. Accommodation standards are high and with swimming pools available it added another dimension to our holiday. Our varied meal plan provided an opportunity to try local restaurants and explore beyond the hotels. Overall a very rounded experience.

Inn Travel organised every detail of our self guided walking holiday in Madeira, including the flights. They are extremely thorough with their paper work, we received all the documents in good time with excellent advice for this type of holiday. They are also at the end of a phone line should questions arise.

Exciting, refreshing, dramatic

This was an Inntravel walking holiday 'Classic Madeira' based on walking alongside levadas through the stunning Madeira countryside. Inntravel organised all of our accommodation and transfers and provided excellent information to guide our daily wallks.

Lovely walking in Madeira.

We had an excellent walking holiday. Although some of the walks were quite long, following the levadas was quite easy. There were also a couple of optional, more challenging walks which we also enjoyed.

Having hotels and transfers arranged meant we were able to relax and concentrate our efforts on enjoying the walks.

Enjoyable time together.

It was a self guided walking holiday in Madeira. We walked the levadas and stayed in quality hotels. The transfer of our luggage from hotel to hotel and the food and rooms at each hotel were excellent. We felt the routes chosen were not the best and the location of one of the hotels was not very good. Some of the walk notes contained small but vital inaccuracies.

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry that, although you enjoyed your holiday overall, you felt that some of the routes were not the best and that there were some inaccuracies in the notes. You went on our Waterways & Flowers holiday, for which it was necessary to revise the walking notes a great deal in the last year following the temporary closure of several paths our routes had followed. As part of our commitment to constantly improve our holidays, we have changed the itinerary – now called Classic Madeira – a little for autumn 2015 onwards, so that it now also features some walking in the centre of the island. The route notes have been thoroughly revised and updated as a result, and hopefully the greater variety in the walking will make what was already a very popular and well-received holiday even better for future travellers.
