David, an Erasmus exchange student was excellent, knowledgeable and personable. Got to see a whole part of the city we hadn't found and hear some really interesting stories and history.

Great tour around Funchal - we learned a lot and got to see some places we would never have found ourselves - and had a little madeira wine tasting at the end Thanks again!

Julia was great. Her historical knowledge was great. Answered all our questions. Very happy and positive attitude☺️

Knowledgable guide and friendly guide. It was an enjoyable and informative tour.

Lovely walk in a lesser-known part of the city with a very knowledgeable guide
