  • Overview & Itinerary

    Funchal, capital of Madeira, is a perfect all-year round destination; the mild subtropical climate means that the weather is always evenly warm and pleasant. Even though the city is a popular tourist destination, the atmosphere on this green island is very relaxed. Funchal is the main port of call for many cruise ships and the harbour area is known as one of the most spectacular in the world, rivalling that of Rio De Janeiro’s.

    Hop on our tour bus to see the sights of this charming city hassle-free. Visit the Pico dos Barcelos high above the city, an observation point at the height of 355 metres allowing you magnificent views across Funchal. You could also visit the Madeira Wine Lodge to sample some of the famous unique regional wines or stroll through the fragrant gardens of Quinta Magnolia, where you can also play tennis or take a dip in the open-air pool!

    You can hop off to visit the numerous attractions or take a break for lunch and hop back on when you’re ready. Sightseeing really does not get any easier than this!
