About Us

June and Trevor Franks

Trevor and June Franks emigrated to Madeira in 1988 after previously staying on holidays. They liked it so much that when they had the chance to move they did so without hesitation.

Trevor started walking every Levada and mountain walk that was possible to walk. He then worked for various companies for five years taking groups around Madeira on the levadas and mountains showing people the fauna and flora that Madeira has to offer. He is still amazed twenty-nine years later that he still discovers more about Madeira each time he goes out. An island waiting to be discovered.

June started walking the levadas and mountains at a later date. She is now a fully converted walker with experience of some tough walks.

The business of 'TJ Walking' was created in 1989. The name derives from their christen names (T)revor and (J)une.

We love people staying with us for their holidays and try to give them as much information about Madeira as possible.

People do ask us do we regret moving to Madeira, the answer is a resounding No! The one thing that we do regret is not coming sooner.
