What people are saying about Rua de Santa Maria
Tour is highly recommended to get that local knowledge and insight into the place that you'd just be unaware of if wandering around on your own. History Tellers is a great outfit largely staffed - as I understand it - by short-term placement people from many countries. Our guide was Polish but dealt perfectly with us Brits and was a very pleasant young woman; thank you, Elvira. I'd encourage all visitors to Funchal to consider using this extremely competitively priced organisation - you may be lucky as we were to try some local liquers and poncha after the tour as well!
A gréât way to learn all about Madeira's history while exploring the old town. Lots of things pointed out which you would miss on your own and would not find in a guidebook. Small group - we were on our own! - with a friendly, extremely knowledgeable young guide who was also good fun.
Carlos was great at explaining what was, in my opinion, a set of very interesting curiosities about Funchal and this area we explored in particular. Tour worth doing! Was very nice way to spend 2 hours.
Our guide Katarzynia was an excellent & informative guide. Would have paid more & money is for a good cause. Well done the student union from the university of Madeira for starting this initiative
The tour was very enjoyable - just another couple on the tour so was able to ask questions and have the guides full attention - would use again.
