Nice tour along a short, narrow, somewhat muddy levadas in the Betgwald. But unfortunately you have to return exactly the same way because it ends in a dead end-but at the waterfall. There is a deduction because we booked in German and got English, but with an email the day before. It worked anyway, he was very nice and in the end we went to the restaurant at our request.
