My husband & I did the 2-hour historical tour with Martha who had an extensive knowledge of the place and was very personable. We thoroughly enjoyed having her as our guide and would highly recommend her to anyone else doing this tour. We could have chatted with her for hours!

As always, everything went great. Mara, our guide, introduced us to the history and stories of Funchal in a sympathetic way. It was great fun and we can only recommend it. Many thanks and gladly again.

Nice tour of Funchal to get a good overview. The guide was a young man from Luxembourg doing his fsj in Madeira. He did his job great! I can only recommend
