We undertook a DIY excursion using local buses and travelled to the Northern side of the Island for 14 Euros for two. Pretty village with beach side cafes and cheap grub with a spectacular ride of the mountains.

Used hop on hop off bus option provided by cruise ship. Make sure you use the "whole" ticket. It's good for 3 routes, not just the one you get on at the ship. Great island.

These island folk are very proud of their high spots on their islands. This guide was just too sweet and continually commented on how everyone cooperates with each other, especially while driving on their narrow roads.

9 euros for transfer into town is a bit much !! Only took 10mins, but if you have mobility issues a bit to far to walk

Having spent a week here before and also stopped on a transatlantic crossing we were looking forward to some walking in the mountains. We hired a car and headed for the top but unfortunately so had lots of walking groups on the Island. We persevered for a few hours along narrow high level paths before heading off to other, quieter parts. Got some great photos from some lookout points along the way and ended our day back in town. Dropped the car off and had drinks by the pool of the hotel we had previously stayed at and enjoyed the sunny walk back through the gardens to the ship. Read Less

Funchal was the most attractive island that we visited, yet we didn’t have long enough. It’s pointless arriving at 6am when most people are still asleep.

Madeira is a truly beautiful island. We took the bus to the top and the view is incredible. Had a lovely lunch at harbour and visited the Ronaldo museum with a Tuk Tuk ride back to the ship
