Madeira (Funchal)
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Funchal was nice - attractive setting - plenty of shops - did the toboggan - nice - not that bad a queue bit odd that all the kids ended up in the madeira tasting room - mind my lad enjoyed his !

port not much to talk about - little in town either - when on a trip to the caldera - interesting trip - saw a lot of very attractive scenary - but we couldnt get into the area which was a big disappointment - then we just kind of drove around with our guide who was doing his best

tour on tram and coach not docked close to centre of town almost under the april 25 bridge (bit noisy) - but good shuttle buses (as at Funchal) - nice large town shops architecture etc trip good on tram going round old town - but the bus part seemed to go to places we ended up going past in the boat coming in and out - seemed a bit of waste of time really

Port area not much - small shopping centre few restaurants nearby - lively lunch scene with lots of seafood - looked popular - not much else nearby (that we saw)

went on trip to Santiago de Compostela - attractive drive - entertaining guide - very good - went to the parador for snacks, but the queues to get in were so long they elected not to go in - maybe a mistake as could have seen that when we turned up and gave folks the option of queuing at that point and missing the snack in the attractive parador - after a while hanging around in the drizzle, we left the group and queued anyway and actually got in within about 45 mins - couldnt spend that long inside but worthwhile
