Madeira (Funchal) Toboggan Rides Excursion Reviews
A very unique and enjoyable experience!
Would be excellent but our guide was abrupt and rather hostile at time. This is also the only tour I've ever been on where it was essential to keep track of the guide. She walked without regard to ability (we are fit and could easily keep up) but many were left to be picked up "on the way back". She would always as the obligatory, "Are there any questions. (note the period and not a question mark)" and would immediately say "Good" and turn away. One passenger said, " I don't think we are allowed any questions." which prompted a round of laughter. If it had not been for the caring interest by tour members, people would have been lost along the way and left alone on the bus. Very hard to understand. The content of the tour was fun and beautiful. The toboggan ride was a blast and we highly recommend.
We felt like cattle being herded around, and, should we go there again, will certainly travel independently.
The toboggan ride is very over-rated and we were pestered to buy photographs.
