Notre guide Narciso nous a promenés toute la matinée dans tout Funchal. Nous avons eu beaucoup d'informations historiques, économiques, patrimoniales, le tout dans un bon français. Ce fut une visite privée, nous n'étions que deux, mon mari et moi, ce qui a favorisé une communication enrichissante. Narciso n'a pas été avare de son temps. Pour tout cela, nous le remercions chaleureusement. Et nous recommandons fortement cette visite, qui permet de bien se repérer avant de partir explorer Funchal en autonomie.

Narciso was a local who is knowledgeable about the history of Funchal but also all things Madeiran. His English is excellent and very easy to speak with.

Narciso a pris bien plus que le temps prévu pour nous faire découvrir Funchal et répondre à toutes nos questions. Bien plus qu une visite c’est une rencontre avec un authentique habitant de Madère que nous avons vécu. Encore merci pour cette magnifique ballade et tous ces échanges
