I think it was the Island first it was similar to the tour on the Ho Ho buses, but eventually we headed inland to the mountains, for Madeira wine and chestnut cake. Enjoyable.

We were picked up as agree and visited the Island of Madeira all the way to Porto Moniz. Lava pools were interesting, Beautiful vistas. Nice drive, excellent guide and dinner (had the ugly fish which was excellent)

Tour guide was excellent. Toboggan ride awesome. Cable car ride fantastic. Worth the money. Encompassed a lot in 4.5 hours. We stayed to shop and did not take bus back to port. No shuttle that day because of parade which was nice to see from our friend's balcony. Beautiful city.

Very good value local tour company gave us a guided tour of the west of the island. We were always ahead of the ship tour and avoided the crowds. On request we also went Madeira tasting. Excellent independent excursion.

It probably worked out cheaper booking with cruise. Saw most of the Island great views. The people who turned up in Taxis had to queue longer than coach travellers.

I took an island tour to get an overview of Madeira, mission accomplished! Our tour guide was very informative without being overly talkative. The tour took us up to a very high point with great views, stopped at a beautiful golf course for coffee and snacks, and gave us a driving tour from the golf course back to and around Funchal. It was an enjoyable experience!

Taxi tour, 4 of us, to Eirra do Serrado, Cabo Girao, Monte, the fishing village, and one more place. Half day. Short stops all places, as we wanted time to spend in Funchal as well as the tour. Enjoyed it, recommend it. Also liked walking around in the Old Town area of Funchal , looking at painted door, Sao Tiago fort, etc.

Beautiful island...a real surprise how large the city was, how clean and modern and what great vistas and scenery... with banana plants growing almost everywhere.

Super tour. Lasted all day. We could not have seen anymore in the time that we had. Great value. Booked it online and saved even more. Was able to pay for it with paypal which added more convenience and security.

Jan 2013 - Here you find pictures of the tour. It was just wonderful. The tour operator did exactly what we wanted: a restaurant without other tourists... very local... very good... very cheap! The tour includes wine tasting, food, Cabo Girao...
