Enjoyable walk around town learning about the history of Funchal. Our guide was excellent and really knew his history. Went out of his way to make our walking tour enjoyable. Pointed out the photography museum which I visited the next day.

We had a great and informative tour of the old town of Funchal. Amelie told us a lot about the history of Funchal and Madeira in a very sympathetic and cheerful way. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot. Highly Recommended!

We had the tour with Amelie. It was very impressive and informative. You can get more information on the private tour. I can really only recommend it. Thank you very much for that.
