For the second time we called on Ludovic to organize our Erasmus mobility in Funchal for our professional baccalaureate landscaping students...
We spent 15 days of star hiking in Madeira, guided by the exceptional Ludovic.
This trip was much more than just an adventure - it was a true odyssey through the natural, cultural and culinary wonders of this island paradise.
Our family discovery of Madeira went very well. This charming island has managed to captivate us both with the landscapes it offers and with its lush flora.
We were accompanied for this by Ludovic from Madere Intime, who took on the challenge of organizing a tour for us in a very short time and during the high season.
We did 2 guided tours: one for a day for the west of the island and a day for the east of the island. The 2 guides that Ludovic found us were great and the circuits magnificent.
Our group of 13 friends went hiking on the island of Madeira. It was a magnificent visit orchestrated by Ludovic our Madeira Intime guide who was able to show us all the facets of this magnificent island thanks to his extensive knowledge.
A pure joy, Ludovic did everything to ensure that we had a wonderful stay, he is a very attentive guide who knew how to adapt gradually depending on the weather, our desires, and finally our excellent physical shape (humor).
With Ludovic, you will enter the intimacy of his island, without forgetting the essentials. Ludovic is a serious guide, conscientious in listening to his clients - I should write friends -, careful, knowing how to adapt to the weather and the difficulties of the course.
How to reconcile the physical side of discovering this sublime island with the pleasure of discovering Madeiran gastronomy.. With MADERE INTIME it’s possible.. and in French! Ludovic's experience is impressive
We asked Ludovic from the Madere Intime agency for support in organizing a “free” stay in Madeira as a family (with 2 teenagers) in April 2023.
We were delighted! as much by the service provided as by the discovery of this island with breathtaking landscapes and very welcoming inhabitants.
Hikes with magnificent landscapes.
The people, the food...everything was great. Our guide Ludovic had put together a great program for us with a daily hike also combining the discovery of local specialties (food and alcohol).
I have been a mountain guide in Italy for many years and I joined Ludovic to accompany a group of 24 hikers for a week. This was our first experience as a duo. It was he who chose and planned the daily program in accordance with the requests and capacities of the group and the stay went perfectly well.
If we managed to take our group of students on an Erasmus internship in Madeira, it's thanks to Ludovic! He created links with local companies so that the internships went as smoothly as possible.
I was in dire need of decompressing when I embarked for Madeira this autumn. The visit to this island with Polynesian reliefs, with vegetation that could not be more generous, with calm and pleasant inhabitants entrusted to the masterful hands of Ludovic was in all respects a source of rejuvenation!
From the first contacts to the arrival in Funchal, it has been a long road, the Covid 19 pandemic having intervened along the way to delay and complicate the departure.
14 days of discovering the royal trails and paths or not, steep descents and climbs just as much, with a Ludovic who knows his island like the back of his hand… from his feet.
A 10-day stay that took place magnificently on the theme of gastronomy, culture and hiking. Thanks to an excellent program very well balanced and presenting all aspects of the island.
We have been visiting Madeira Island regularly since 2018 with the intimate Madeira agency and its fabulous guide Ludovic. In July 2020, we opted for the gastronomic hike formula with the Berlémont family.
The goal was to discover the variety of Madeira landscapes as a family. Ludovic helped us a lot! We recommend it to access a lot of beautiful things, our trip was top. Thanks Ludovic
Finally Madeira! Great, not disappointed. Thank you Ludo. The holidays are beautiful
And the great dishes! Traditional cuisine as we do not know it anymore! And walks within reach of the mini hiker that I am.
This discovery of Madeira, in such a short time, was exceptional because of the diversity of activities and the very good and personalized organization that Ludovic put in place for our family. It was faultless !!! With a lot of professionalism.
Ludo, you are the encyclopedia of Madeira and your love of this island, you knew how to transmit it to us on so many plans! Geologist, botanist, tireless hiker, gourmet, good drinker, kind, human and adaptable to people of old age like us and so rebellious to any discipline: you conquered us and we thank you for having become the very emblem of Madeira . No better introduction
An unforgettable stay thanks to the richness of the discovered landscapes, the quality of the explanations of the life in Madeira, its history, its gastronomy. Thank you to our guide Ludovic who has responded well to our expectations, always present from our arrival at the airport until we leave, and this in a warm atmosphere. Experience to recommend.
As a couple with 3 children (16, 11 and 8 years), we did a week of gastronomy, culture and ecological hiking in Madeira.
Ludovic made us discover with enthusiasm and passion his island. We enjoyed the good addresses and good tables offered throughout the stay. A real discovery of Madeira very intimate and magical.
A very nice week of discoveries and crazy laughs or Ludovic has allowed everyone to satisfy his passion. A big thank you for the discovery of the magnificent views and the patience during the long sessions of photos of landscapes and sunset.

Ludo our guide picked us up at the airport for a week staying with us all the time. Thank you to you Ludo for your professionalism and your kindness you made us discover your island by your knowledge in history flora the good addresses you took us to excellent restaurants to feast and impregnate us with the local life and its inhabitants.
A wonderful stay, well prepared by Ludovic who is a perfect guide for his professionalism and knowledge both as a guide and on the historical and cultural level. Hotels and restaurants super well chosen to immerse themselves totally in the local life. Thank you
The Christmas trip to Madeira (22 - 30 dec) was great, especially due to the efforts of our terrific guide Ludo. In all honesty, I do not think I have had a better guide than Ludo during all of my trips thus far. His enthusiasm to show the best parts of the island (he really knows every nook and cranny) and his innate ability to tell a clear story in a cool and collective manner while passing beautiful sceneries in his comfortable car make the trips around the island absolutely worthwhile.
