Madeira (Funchal) Mountains of Madeira Excursion Reviews

March up the Mountains of Madeira—not literally, of course!—and discover what it is that makes this island so special.
Gave us an idea of the geography of the island.
Sail Date: May 2019
Gave us an idea of the geography of the island. Nonetheless, a morning independent visit of Funchal was more fulfilling.

We went to the top and it was cold, windy.
Sail Date: March 2019
We went to the top and it was cold, windy. I had a cardigan but still cannot keep warm. It was a cloudy day and cold so we couldn't see much except hiding in the gift shop to keep warm.

The tour included the mountains, and the views were amazing.
Sail Date: January 2018
The tour included the mountains, and the views were amazing. We went on a cable car and also did the toboggan ride, which is a fun way to get down from the high point through the city streets.

We had a fantastic tour with this company. Open top off road jeep tour up into the mountains, the views were spectacular. We also stopped at a local cafe to sample the traditional drink 'Puncho' I think it is called, Freshly squeezed lemons, honey and rum. My husband enjoyed it so much he had two - it was just a little too strong for my taste! We also rode the cable car which was a beautiful experience. Read Less

A good tour aided by an excellent guide.
Sail Date: December 2015
A good tour aided by an excellent guide. Nicely spaced out in terms of time intervals between stops and would have rated higher had we not been in the clouds at the very top! Enjoyed the cake/tea/coffee and, later, the wine tasting.
