Full description
With a local guide on the driving seat this tour provides a fantastic introduction to Funchal’s history, culture and landmarks. The tour will take you to the 15th century Old Town, with stops at the fantastic viewpoints of Socorro and Villa Guida.

Later, appreciate a mix of landmarks from different centuries in the city center, including the 15th century cathedral, the Mercado dos Lavradores (Farmers Market) and the Municipal Square where the City Hall and the Jesuit Monastery are found. Visit the neighborhood of São Pedro where the island's oldest convent, Santa Clara, the famous Museum of Quinta das Cruzes and the Church of São Pedro can be admired.

Wonderful ride with Nadia

We started the tour at 10 am and Nadia was already in front of the hotel. She took us all over the city, even up to the fort where we would have never gone by ourselves. She told us some nice facts about the city and dropped us off where we chose to proceed our day. The only minus on the Tuk Tuk Taxi is that it is a bit noisy and therefore we couldn't really talk to Nadia during the drive. But she took enough breaks where we were able to ask questions.

What a great way to see Funchal!

Both my husband and I really enjoyed this little excursion. Our guide was the lovely informative Carolina. We managed to see such a lot in a short time and would recommend this trip to everyone. We saw so much more than we would have done by walking, we went to the fort that overlooks the port and we could have gone anywhere that we asked for so you can adapt the trip to your liking.

Super schöne Tour. Wir haben viel gesehen und viel über Madeira erfahren. Unsere Guides konnten leider nicht so gut deutsch, was für uns jetzt nicht schlimm war, jedoch für nicht englisch sprechende ein Problem ist. Wenn ich eine deutsche Führung buche möchte ich diese auch haben. Gibt jetzt keinen Punktabzug :-). Kann die Tour zu 100% empfehlen.
